Shift Happens Newsletter

I am just never going to make my giant email newsletter list post and I have another one to recommend. If you're interested in the history of computing, keyboards, or the ways people interact with machines you should follow Marcin Wichary's progress on his book Shift Happens. Yesterday's update was a love letter to the KPH Radio Station in Marin County, CA which preserves decades of keyboards devoted to maritime communication: A time machine behind the cypress trees. And to catch up with Wichary's obsession you can't go wrong with Matt Haughey's interview with him on Hobby Horse: Marcin Wichary quit his job for his love of keyboards.

The Interface Newsletter

I keep meaning to write a long post about email newsletters, how I manage them in Gmail, and which ones I subscribe to. Instead I'll just recommend one newsletter that has been fantastic lately: Casey Newton's The Interface. If you're interested in how our Internet ecosystem works (or doesn't work) you'll enjoy it.
