Hello internet friends!

74 newsletters in and I still didn’t bother to check the rules whether there needs to be a comma behind that “hello” or not.

2014: An enormous bitcoin mine went up in flames.
Is this the future? It sounds enormously cyberpunk-y to me.

Talking about enormously cyberpunk-y things – my copy of City of Darkness arrived this weekend. A stunningly well-made book about Kowloon Walled City I will probably be busy looking at the great photos and diagrams and reading about the inhabitant’s lives for quite some while.
And yes, one of these cross-sections made it into the book as well.

The big podcast du jour is The Serial which chronicles a reporter looking into a murder case from 1999. Apparently it is very well made and yet – I am not all that willing to give it a listen. Mostly because I am afraid I might like it too much and then forget that these are real people and not something like Lost or Twin Peaks.
Obviously I am not the only one with those ideas. Especially since some listeners seem to start looking into the case by themselves.

And hey, sure, why not? Cooking 101: An Infographic is worth a thousand recipes.

Be safe.
