A ramble so nice I recorded it twice (after not understanding how garbage my new inline mic would be at picking up audio over the rustling of my coat). WHOOPS. Anyway we’re here now and that’s what matters. I hope you’re all breathing deep.
- Sarah Mirk‘s climate reporting experiment (not actually one of her 365 zines—I was mistaken)
- Lucy Knisley’s hand washing song comic
- Robin Sloan considering how the Internet used to be all archipelago, no mainland
- Two good newsletters: Cassie Marketos & Robin Rendle
- My pal Zack Giallongo, who’ll have a good podcast-y chat with me about curiosity and pedagogy and technology up on his Patreon very soon
- Two good thinker-bloggers: Beck Tench and Lauren Bacon
- Christina Tran’s delightful Twine-game-as-blog, Lighthouse
If you’re curious about installing an RSS reader for yourself, I use NetNewsWire, which is free, open source, and just released a mobile app to boot.
The question I pose at the end of this ramble is as follows: who are some people you consider conceptual kin right now? Who are you envious of, or inspired by, or running to keep pace with? I think this question is a little different than “Who are some of your favorite artists/writers” because it’s more specifically about identifying people who live/work/play in ways we wish to claim for ourselves. I’m chewing on it. I wanna hear about yours. No answer is permanent.
