See you again on December 25
Another Sunday, Another Naive Weekly — Observations From The Internet Wilderness.
We are finding our routines here in Athens. For example, Fridays are our market day, and every day is for appreciating our street and neighborhood. In the coming weeks, I’ll be taking a break, so the next time you hear from me is on Sunday, December 25, when I return with the annual life review. I wish you a curious time until then.
Train is full of shooting stars.
Planet Pizza is an explanation of earthly desires to foreign planets.
Low Rustic Baron is draggable colours.
Silent Devil Maker is a web doll cutout maker.
I appreciate the rigour in answering why Japanese web design is different? From thousand of screenshots of popular websites, most common assumptions are discarded, and as with any proper question, there is no single answer. Ps. if you want to see different web designs, search for carrd.co on Twitter (like this).
Since I am taking a break, I recommend you subscribe to Web Curious for weekly internet oddities. I didn’t ask Matt if he is taking a break over the next weeks, but let’s assume he keeps his schedule and — as usual — delivers the most comprehensive and humorous, cynical internet round-up in existence.
If you want to hear from us before December 25, you can order a postcard.
Ask Me Anything
Q: Why did you move? And why to Athens?
We deeply loved our Copenhagen home. It was the perfect base for becoming a family, with trees in front of all windows and a short calm walk to Uno’s daycare. So when we learned we couldn’t prolong our rental contract, our hearts broke.
There was nowhere else in Copenhagen we could imagine living. So we started to dream of milder winters and trying another home before the reality of institutional school life. We are both drawn to the Mediterranean pace of life, so since Ana is well-established in Greece with her work, it quickly arrived as a promising destination.
Q: What is your day to day job?
I don’t have a day job — and have not had one for four years. I earn my money as a freelancer and resist defining it further because the elasticity opens a wide range of gigs, from writing to curation, facilitation, and concept development. You can find a few snapshots on cloudlord.management.
Thank you for the questions. Reply with other questions, and answers might arrive in future newsletters.
I’m happy to receive submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
