Newsletter?


Gary over at Thoughtfactory is now writing a newsletter. Like so many  he is distancing himself from the devils bargain that is “free” Facebook gmail and so on.  I totally support this move back to the pre facebook era. A time when blogs and blogging held sway. At absolutely no cost to the reader.

Encourage him and others like him so we can reclaim the web.

Social Media in the time of the pandemic?

Earlier this year I noticed callout for a shift in approach to social media. Andy Adams, Bryan FormhalsJorg Colberg Noah Kalina and Alec Soth all are writing and distributing via means outside of Facebook or Twitter. Lewis Bush began the year by advocating for a shift away from Twitter. I am still predominantly reading online via an RSS news reader called NetNewsWire. Combined with my Alumni access to RMIT‘s online resources and the SLV’s online collection there’s no shortage of reading material. Yesterday’s quote by Teju Cole came from Bryan Formal’s newsletter for example
