Ad hoc Walk Talk
And what I am listening to while writing.
Another Sunday, Another Naive Weekly — Observations From The Internet Wilderness.
I grew up next to a church bell. Every hour it would declare the time from its tower. Pure Sisyphus work, but nonetheless, the bell sounded proud as it rang the sun across the horizon.
The bell rings seven times when you receive this newsletter. You can’t hear the bell’s announcement, so let me describe it: “ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding.” As you bring the tune to life in your mind, remember to take short pauses with each comma to allow the vibration to settle.
And if you struggle to make the bell sound right, you might instead want to listen to what I Play Softly when I write this newsletter. Each song represents a cherished moment from recent years.

Calendar Collective is a living archive of alternate calendars.
Marco is using an extension to walk/scroll along the Camino Francés.
Braiding investigates braiding as metaphor and rule-based framework for production.
I know it is much easier to add than subtract, and I would not want to remove any of the links included in this cute comment on how we should seek other goals than speed on the internet, especially when Guy Debord is mentioned side-by-side with Laurel Schwulst. But — I was expecting to see Internet Walks and one of the projects that plays with allowing others to see your browsing history.
A dense, and occasionally tense, pondering about publishing to the web and transferring two decades of production to a new website. I appreciate the revulsions against Tim Berner Lee’s call for raw data and the historical references to web protocols and practices, but the real treasure is the figure of the sponge.
I’m inclined to include anything Everest Pipkin touches. This terrific essay is no exemption. It accompanies a series of generated images of pine trees by Ben Moren, but rather than directly addressing the artwork, Everest spirals through memories, futures, and the entanglement of everything. I should also mention that Everest announced a game to end the world you’ve made.
