The Friday Roundup - 12/1/2023 Edition
How the actual hell is it already December??
Every Friday, I share some of the most interesting articles, videos, and books I’m looking at with our subscribers. It’s an eclectic mix fueled by my unique personal variant of ADHD and pattern recognition, so you won’t find compilations like these anywhere else.
If you’d like access to the The Friday Roundup and all subscribers-only features and posts, you can sign up for just $5/month or $50 per year, right here:
Happy Friday, TSFers! (Sounds a bit too much like MFers when you say it out loud, so maybe I need to come up with something better…)
Welcome to December, which totally snuck up on me. Today is going to be a bit more of an abbreviated version of the The Friday Roundup on my end; I’m pressed for time, so I’ll be popping in links with excerpts, and not much commentary from me.
The Internet is Boring - Thomas J Bevan/Soaring Twenties
The internet was revolutionary once, it offered the promise that anyone could communicate and connect and share their creations with other likeminded souls. It was based on authenticity and weirdness and fun.

Fast forward twenty years and it has all of the vitalism and excitement of a failing out of town mall.
