Summer Hiatus

Hello internet friends,

as you can tell – it is Thursday and not Monday and the subject of this email might have told you everything you need to know.

I’m not really feeling the whole reading the internet spirit lately which leads to me not having anything properly interesting for you folks when writing my email. So I figured that it might be a good idea to take a little summer break for a couple of weeks.

I hope to see you on the other side,



Hello internet friends,

no proper newsletter this week – the fourth year of this thing just ended and I’m taking a week off.

Enjoy this picture of a dog that I took a while ago

See you next week, toodles!

Plastic Poop

Hello internet friends,

remember roughly a year ago we were all wondering about an alien megastructure? Turns out it might be just dust.


I’m harvesting credit card numbers and passwords from your site. Here’s how. Between this rather realistic scenario and the whole chip architecture vulnerability it might be time to just end this whole digital experiment. (Before we do, send me your addresses, so I can send you these letters by post.)

Plastic Fantastic Redux

Remember last week we had eco-plastics? Now someone found caterpillars that eat plastic: Plastic-eating caterpillars could save the planet
I’m not too sure how well that would work – they’re probably not breaking down the plastic polymers small enough to make their feces not be plastic anymore?


This speaks to me on so many levels: ‘Most of us are too busy to be better’: the lazy person’s guide to self-improvement

That’s all for this week.
