Heavy, heavy nostalgia for the web that used to be. I used to love Design is Kinky, k10k, Surfstation, Australian Infront and all those sites with tiny fonts…

A special kind of nostalgia for those who were there.

Also, it’s a good reminder of how underrated getting good at the basics of something is.

I’ve started reading a lot more intro/primer/101-type stuff recently. Without exception, I have learned a bunch of things that I’d never have found out otherwise, even (or maybe especially!) about topics with which I thought I was already familiar.

For the voyeuristic bibliophiles out there, @nytimesbooks has something that will likely appeal… 😀

If you’re going to take unsolicited advice from anyone, you could do worse than getting it from @kevin2kelly:

“Learn how to learn from those you disagree with, or even offend you. See if you can find the truth in what they believe.”

There are literally hundreds of those multiple-artists-collaborating-on-a-performance-over-Zoom videos making the rounds right now, but this rendition of “Times Like These” has got to be one of the best. It helps that it was a great song to start with.

Take three-and-a-half minutes out of your day and listen to @neilhimself; it’ll be worth it, I promise.

We are tougher than we seem. We are tougher than we think. Our stories will outlive us. Let’s make them good.”

A reflection from Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) on the fragile but powerful resilience of humans:

This is fascinating. I’d never really thought about where all those aircraft go when they’re not flying.

@MarkMulvey I’m sensing a theme here…?

@campegg April 20, 2020 at 8:41p.m.

This is brilliant, and probably one of the more effective social distancing signs out there. 😀

@campegg April 20, 2020 at 12:22p.m.

How my town is explaining the actual distance of social distancing. 😂

I should be hanging out in Hopkinton right now with 30,000 other excited, nervous friends… looking forward to doing it in September instead. #BostonMarathon

Today’s quarantine project: replicating (or trying to) one of those fridge magnet poetry kits. The thirteen-year-old in me has been very amused.

I’m a fan of both Seinfeld and point-and-click, SCUMM-type games like Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit the Road and Indiana Jones & the Fate of Atlantis, so this tickles my fancy:

In reply to @MarkMulvey:

@MarkMulvey I was having this exact conversation earlier this morning. I saw four consecutive ads on TV that were essentially minor variations of the same thing. And I can’t remember what any of the brands were.

Twenty years ago this month, @WIRED published “Why the Future Doesn’t Need Us” by Bill Joy. It’s a remarkable piece, and stands up better over time than anything similar I can think of.

German compound words are amazing.

Kummerspeck (Germany) – literally ‘grief bacon’. Excess weight or body fat gained due to emotional overeating.
