  4. The Architecture Behind A One-Person Tech Startup

    I’m trying to come to terms with how this “simple” setup makes me feel anxious and overwhelmed just reading about it. So many things. (via @simonw)

    Some lovely reduction lino prints, without too much of the tweeness that a lot of nature prints have.

  11. UKEthicalInvesting - making money in a responsible way

    Only just come across this subreddit. Been going since April 2020. Ethical investing often gets dismissed in other investing places, so interesting to have this.

  12. Swim Smooth vs. Total Immersion : Swimming

    I re-learned swimming years ago from the TI book alone, and haven’t thought to read much about it since. So this (9-year-old) critique is fascinating, and makes complete sense to me.

  13. Chloe Aridjis · At the HKW: Aby Warburg · LRB 5 November 2020

    I hadn’t heard of Warburg’s ‘Bilderatlas Mnemosyne’ before. A “display of almost a thousand images … an attempt to create something like a flowchart of Western civilisation“.

  18. TT2020 | More Information

    Creating a more realistic typewriter font. But I don’t understand why the movies mentioned didn’t use a real typewriter. And don’t get me started on “handwriting” fonts. (via Michael Thai)

  19. Your Mother Doesn’t Work Here - Body of Work: Belle de Jour

    Looking back on everything. And cleaning. “Decades ago I had something they wanted: youth and sex. They had something I wanted: money and to be taken seriously. Only one end of that equation ever gets what it wants.” (via FaveJet)

  20. Why Generation X will save the web - Hi, I’m Heather Burns

    I enjoyed this, about millennials making government policy based on the internet *they* know. But it doesn’t answer the title’s “Why”, and the “under 30s” is no longer a definition of millennials. (via Adactio)

  21. The internet, after all, never forgets - Garbage Day

    “But when you create content on the internet, you have to imagine it being consumed in four dimensions, front to back, but also out of order, and also without whatever greater context it was created in.”

  22. Window Cleaning Forums | UK’s #1 Window Cleaners Forum

    I will never not be pleased to stumble across forums dedicated to very specific jobs.
