I haven’t often seen this aspect discussed at length in early retirement planning articles.
“Could you leave everything behind and start from zero again? Pick one thing, and one only, and be absolutely devoted to it? Make it the reason for your existence, the thing that contains everything, that becomes everything, because your dedication to it makes it last forever?”
I love maps of the internet. (via Web Curios)
@RichardYoung Oh yes, thanks - I’d seen a note that Web Curios would be back but hadn’t noticed the recent email (it arrived at the bottom of my neatly organised Feedbin folders).
So, what newsletters/blogs/whatever am I missing, focused on UK/Europe/elsewhere, written by people who “get it” (still surprisingly rare), about net culture, art, business, media, fandom, memes, etc?
Other than NTK a couple of decades ago? Don’t make me go back in time again.
Now isn’t the same but, with the newsletter explosion, there’s SO MUCH interesting American internet writing happening. But if there’s great UK (or other non-American, English-language) internet weird culture/business/media news writing it’s passed me by.
Back in the 1990s the UK felt noticeably behind the US in terms of internet culture and business - there was a clear lag of months or years before some things reached us.
I love Garbage Day, Money Stuff, Today in Tabs, etc (and, if I had more time, Sidechannel stuff) but I feel tired and remote reading about American dramas all the time. Is there anything UK based that gets ::waves arms:: all this? What am I missing?
