About @puntofisso

"in other news" is my weekly newsletter about data – it's about all things data from data analysis to visualisations, from interesting trivia to curious linguistics, from scientific papers to music and poetry with a "geeky" twist. I have been writing it since 2012, and over 300 issues have followed.

You can subscribe for free.

I spend quite a lot of my free time researching interesting stories, cataloguing, writing a summary of what they are, and composing the newsletter so that it always contains a good mix of topics and is appealing. Although writing the newsletter is a hobby, I would like to make this writing a bit more sustainable and, possibly, use it to encourage myself to write in a different context, as I have a couple of ideas for longer form writing derived from what I've learnt writing "in other news".

So if you enjoy "in other news" and would like to support me keep writing it, please chip in your Patreon pledge.

$73 of $100 per month
If I reach $100 per month, I can basically pay my accountants :)

But I will also be able to allocate more time to the newsletter: a solid hour per week instead of doing it "just when I can", and the quality of my writing will improve!
