Looking back at the past six months, and it feels like the World is ending.
I thought I would write a post to mark the fact that we have reached the end of the first half of the year, but there is a problem: everything is terrible.
Racism, Police killing people, Governments silencing the press and taking people’s freedom away, war, covid-19, and climate change.
Could it be worse?
I was talking to a friend over lunch – he is also my neighbour and a co-worker, so it has been fairly easy to stay in touch even during lockdown – when he mentioned the fact that the burgers we were eating were good, but unlike McDonald's burgers, the flavour of sauces and other ingredients would vary slightly each time.
A list of useful and interesting websites I visited and saved in my favourites this month.
They are varied in nature, and show the topics I am interested in: privacy, old-style internet, well-being, and figuring out how the human mind works.
Useful tools for blogs and websites. Home-working well-being. Part 4.
Working all day in front of a computer may not be an intense physical activity, but it is still taxing for our eyes, muscles, and body.

Having recently abandoned social media (it feels really good, by the way), and not enjoying the ads, pop-ups, and overall clickbaity tone of most news sites, I have now moved to using rss feeds to get my updates.
I find it funny that rss feeds have been around for ages, but after years of not really getting it, I now enjoy this method for getting news and updates more than any other.
