A weekly-ish email to my internet friends


Harvey. Manfred… jen… sen… den.

Hello, so called “internet friends,”

so Jason Kottke was asking his readers for their favourite blogs and newsletters and not one of you thought about sending him this way? Shame on you. You’re all such a disappointment.

I’m pretty sure we all watched Wild Wild Country by now – the Netflix documentary on Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and his followers. If not, go watch it, it is very good: Wild Wild Country review – Netflix’s take on the cult that threatened American life
And now I wanted to to cleverly segue to a hot take that the whole post–60s-hippies thing was really the start of the current type of induvidualistic capitalism but it seems like they put it behind a pay wall by now. (Here, try it, maybe you’re more lucky than I am: The 1960s were about capitalism, not radicalism)

Still mad at you.

As if linking to the Financial Times isn’t bad enough, here’s a link to Business Insider: Hackers once stole a casino’s high-roller database through a thermometer in the lobby fish tank
Nice going there, securing your network, random casino.

I don’t have much to say about Jeff Goldblum Cooks With Jonathan Gold except that it is 12 minutes of pure Goldblum, which you’ll love if you like the guy and if not – what’s wrong with you? Not liking Goldblum and not telling Kottke about this newsletter?

I can’t really add anything to this take: MySpace Tom beat Facebook in the long run – he seems to have a pretty nice life these days.

Okay, okay. I can’t stay angry at you all for long. I know what it is. You’re like those hipsters who don’t want their favourite band to suddenly become big and share the auditorium with a bunch of normies. I understand.
