One of them is the fact that those who claim that private … Read more The Need for Private Digital Places

How I Work Right Now (June 2020)

I’m always interested in reading how people work, what type of workflows they have. It’s probably because for so long I felt like I didn’t really have one or the ones I tried didn’t stick with me too long.

Surprise book from the mail. Recently supported the crowdfunding project by Teyit and this was one of the gifts for the support. Arrival of new books always makes me happy.
