@infovore This is just a note to say my electronics skills have leveled up probably 2X in the last month, and a large part of that has been (a) following your lead broadly, and (b) assembling a couple of Foxfield tiles specifically 🙏

I have been selling a ton of stuff on eBay for the past couple months and… it's really fun! Like, this site still does what it's supposed to do. Although there are plenty of mega-sellers and auction-bots to contend with, there are also a lot of plain ol' humans too. And it feels nice to carry these packages down to the post office and send them off to people in Santa Rosa, Spokane, Duluth, New Orleans…

Hey folks, I made a videogame! It's a super chill first person game where you spend some time in a nice space and play to enjoy the view.

I hope you'll like it jacopocolo.itch.io/one-hour-in

Hey, here's the great Alan Jacobs—a thinker you should know about—riffing on something I wrote a little while back: blog.ayjay.org/on-sloan-and-sh

From the newsletter:

When I saw the Kindle clipping pop up this morning, I felt a rush of "aw, I loved that book!" and of course my first impulse was to tweet it, which is a statement approximately equivalent to: my first impulse was to write it on a slip of paper and throw it into the wind. It doesn't work anymore, Twitter; not for things like this. Appreciations, recommendations -- they are swept away and the people who ought to see them, don't.

This morning, prompted by this clipping from @leonardr's great novel Constellation Games, I started a new season of the email newsletter PRIMES with a recommendation to read the book: tinyletter.com/primes

"How can it be that the elderly or children aren't able to use the street because of cars?" asks César Mosquera, the city's head of infrastructures. "How can it be that private property—the car—occupies the public space?"

(I always love these moments of like "seeing the water." Even if we ultimately decide "we like the water" or "the water's there for a reason" or whatever—at least we SEE it)

The year will be 2038. Social networks will exist at every scale, for every purpose. Most attention will have shifted to the glittering lens-layers, reducing the incentives for bad actors to abuse flat, text-based platforms. People will play in the bones of the old networks.

And I…

I will still just want one that lets me use italics 😓

While playing No Man’s Sky I've been turning my favorite screenshots from the game into classic sci fi novel covers. I've made three so far: Ascendant Eden, The Satellite Sun, and The Scavenger of Eden.
