A pre-post card.
Another Sunday, Another Naive Weekly — Observations From The Internet Wilderness.
Tuesday we are returning to the Dissertori wonders in South Tyrol. Last year when we went there, Uno couldn’t walk or talk. Now he jumps, responds to three languages, and counts to two.
I can’t recall anticipating a trip as much as I do now. We already started packing on Friday. I’m longing for the warm hospitality, milder weather, and Italian flavours, and I hope to leave behind the cold that has haunted us for weeks.

Search engines are organisms with personality. Lately, I have read many articles complaining about Google Search, the most used search engine worldwide with 92.18% of searches. Google Search is near-perfect for finding easy answers to my everyday questions. However, for more advanced research and internet wondering, I’m searching within specific databases. In this post, Seirdy offers a pleasant introduction to a wide range of alternative search engines, it is fun testing them, and the Rationale, Methodology, and Findings are worth reading.
This week I found myself spending a lot of time clicking around Chia’s Are.na channels; they are enough reason to make an account on the platform if you have not already done so. Her website (linked above) has so much character and kindness: from the domain name to the pop-up entry form and the collections. So here is the highest recommendation to get lost in her universe, including the well-written personal blog and PHP-styled forum.
Cute short post with five different methods for exploring Google Maps. I have added a few of my favourites in the comments of the post, maybe you have some to share too? I’ll make sure to check the comment section later this week to see if you added any.
