The Thoughtful Web: a new email newsletter

There are very many excel¬≠lent email newslet¬≠ters cov¬≠er¬≠ing web tech¬≠nolo¬≠gies: Smash¬≠ing Mag¬≠a¬≠zine, CSS Week¬≠ly, Web Design¬≠er Depot are the first three to imme¬≠di¬≠ate¬≠ly spring to mind. But I think there‚Äôs space for anoth¬≠er one, one that has the focus less on code and process and more on phi¬≠los¬≠o¬≠phy and reflec¬≠tion. So I‚Äôm going to start one.

It‚Äôs pro¬≠vi¬≠sion¬≠al¬≠ly titled ‚ÄėThe Thought¬≠ful Web‚Äô, and my inten¬≠tion is to post an occa¬≠sion¬≠al email (not week¬≠ly, more than month¬≠ly), fea¬≠tur¬≠ing arti¬≠cles I think are real¬≠ly worth read¬≠ing. It‚Äôll cov¬≠er the web, new and emerg¬≠ing tech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy, sci¬≠ence, soci¬≠ety, and phi¬≠los¬≠o¬≠phy ‚ÄĒ but I think it will all be rel¬≠e¬≠vant to the work we do mak¬≠ing the web.

If you‚Äôre inter¬≠est¬≠ed, you can sign up today. I intend to send the first email lat¬≠er this week, and I promise I‚Äôll nev¬≠er be spam¬≠my; I hate email noise, and don‚Äôt intend to con¬≠tribute to it.


I‚Äôve updat¬≠ed my Speak¬≠ing page to include more con¬≠fer¬≠ences, more videos, and a lit¬≠tle on my speak¬≠ing require¬≠ments and pref¬≠er¬≠ences. I‚Äôm plan¬≠ning to cut down on the num¬≠ber of talks I give in 2014 (twelve is too many), but am always open to inter¬≠est¬≠ing offers and oppor¬≠tu¬≠ni¬≠ties, so please get in touch if you‚Äôre organ¬≠is¬≠ing an event.
