Weekly Wrap Up 2.12.2016


This week’s newsletter is here.

There’s always stuff that doesn’t make it into the newsletter. Here’s this week’s list:
The Internet Hilariously Mourns Twitter’s Planned Changes with #RIPTwitter key words “whatever the algorithm thinks”. Plus, appearances by Chris Jericho and MySpace.

Understanding TED’s Approach To The World Pricey ticket? That’s an understatement. I learned a lot with this one.

Speaking of TED: Rejection Is A Sign You’re On To Something New Shared via 99u.com, and includes the full written transcript, which I appreciate.

13 Essential Rules For Staying Safe On The Internet I’m an unashamed broken record on this.

How To Manage Instagram In 20 Minutes A Day Still with the clickbait. Still with the useful content in spite of the clickbait.

Wikipedia’s Longest Hoax Ever Gets Busted After More Than 10 Years Fascinating.

American World War II Veteran Reunites With Wartime Girlfriend In Australia Presented without comment simply because it doesn’t need any.

Revamping the website, stay tuned for this spring’s re-launch.

Podcast Of The Week:
Radio Headspace, featuring Maria Popova and Levi Felix. This is a super-short bonus episode. Maybe take 5 minutes and explore what else is available . . .

This Week’s Music:
I have weekly playlists over on Spotify. I ‘m not convinced it’s possible to share them. Therefore, it’s highly unlikely this link will work unless you have a Spotify account.  So, here’s what’s on it this week.

Chris Stapleton: Tennessee Whiskey

Spencer Davis Group: Gimme Some Lovin’

The Knack: My Sharona

Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats: S.O.B. (side note: they’ll be on Austin City Limits tonight on PBS. Watching won’t be a waste of time.)

Farron Young: Hello Walls

The Pretenders: The Wait

Glen Hansard: Drive All Night

It unintentionally (I assure you) became a Valentine’s Day playlist. So, having acknowledged that (dammit) go watch Once, starring Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová.

Coming Up On The Blog:
Posts about voting, public shaming, Monica Lewinsky, and a series on rituals/habits/traditions.
