A few minor announcements. I’m giving a presentation for Learn WordPress on Wednesday evening about WordPress and the IndieWeb. It’ll be recorded for later, but if you want to sign up to see it live, the link is here: https://www.meetup.com/learn-wordpress-online-workshops/events/294071517/
I haven’t posted a review of the advance copy of 50 Years of Text Adventures that I got, though in previous issues in 2021 I posted some of my favorite chapters as they were posted online. There’s a portal that the author put up that I want to share though, which gives updated locations on where you can play each of the games featured in the book online, without requiring original hardware. https://if50.textories.com/portal/
This week we’ll be taking a short trip, which I’m looking forward to as a break from the sameness that has engulfed my life. I’m sure that I’ll have enough links to share next week too, but I don’t know about a personal essay.
I was thinking of writing about the enshittification of the internet with even more stupidity coming out of Twitter and Reddit, let alone the always stupid Facebook and Instagram.
Instead, I’m going to leave you with this video essay that covers a lot of what I’d want to talk about, saving me the job of writing 😅 The End of the Internet is Here.
If you made it this far, why not share this newsletter with a friend? Or share with me some of the things that you found that you liked this week. Either way, I’m thrilled!
