Diamond Wedding Anniversary
And thanks for all the love.
Another Sunday, Another Naive Weekly — Observations From The Internet Wilderness.
We are back from South Tyrol, but only for a brief visit, because soon we are heading to Greece, where Ana is photographing houses, hotels, and environments. It is a privilege to experience the world together as a family, and I find rest in travelling — and in returning home.
Another place where I always find comfort is my grandparent’s home. It consists of a garden with a house in the middle. It was planted when I was too young to have memories, but I recall pitying my grandparents that it carried no fruits.
With care and time, the pear tree has grown heavy with fruits. Today it stretches itself from ground to roof, and its branches reach many meters wide. Uno and I visited the tree yesterday when we went to celebrate my grandparent’s diamond wedding anniversary. It is not yet the season for pears, but I am in no rush.
10 Movements for 12 Tones is colourful meditation inspired by Josef Albers.
I am tired .online is a scrollytelling website.
The Ballet .xyz represents basic ballet exercises.
Woven Sound is a tranquil web instrument.
The first time I encountered Yesterweb, I discarded the project based on its name. I assumed it was another project reminiscent of the early web days. And while it is not like I don’t get the attraction of nostalgia, I make an effort to not be nostalgic about a time when less than one percent of the world population had access to the Internet. Fortunately, Yesterweb continued to reappear during my browsing, so when I finally paid attention to the project, it had already grown from an idea to an active community with peer-to-peer interaction and collaboration. In this post, Sadness, the initiator of Yesterday, offers an insightful retro perspective of how we engage with each other online and the obstacles to a more queer internet. The post is part of the latest edition of the Yesterweb zine, and I encourage you to dip your toes into the other articles, for example, the summary of the 1997 book called the Internet and World Wide Web Simplified®.
The highest recommendation goes to the inaugural edition of The HTML Review, “a journal of literature made to exist on the web”. The editor’s letter provides an overview of what to expect and with anonymous animal, Everest Pipkin shows why they remain one of the most profound people on the web. Their poem is only available every hour, on the hour, for fifteen minutes. In Today, we saw Anna Garbier and Lan Zhang play with the Alt-text, a repeating theme in this newsletter, by showing us the alt-text rather than the images.
Hi, I’m Kristoffer and you have just read Naive Weekly — Observations from the Internet Wilderness.
Last week this letter was sent to 851 people. Thirtythree are crazy enough to chip in every month/year to support me making time to write. Logo by Studio Hollywood. Print by Luka. Photograph by Ana Santl.
