Another Sunday, Another Naive Weekly — Observations From The Internet Wilderness.
Tomorrow we are returning to Parkhotel Mondschein in South Tyrol. We stayed home during the summer, so while the weather arguably looks more promising here in Copenhagen, I’m anticipating the trip with excitement and look forward to pausing the routines for a moment to answer a few of the defining life questions we are facing.

Tuesday and Wednesday, I was in Malmö, Sweden, hosting a stage at The Conference. It was a pleasure: from the well-organized event to the engaged speakers and kind audience. Since I also had a say in the curation, it is hard for me to highlight one talk from this year’s recordings, but Maya Man’s reflection on “How to use a computer to present oneself” should resonate with most readers. Thanks to Martin, Cecilia, and the team, for the invitation and for everyone who came and said hi.
