Some useful and interesting websites I visited and saved in my favourites in July.
This month went so fast! I was on an internet hiatus for a few weeks, so I don't have many new links saved.
Some useful and interesting websites I visited and saved in my favourites in June. Like last month, they are varied in nature, and show the topics I am interested in: privacy, old-style internet, well-being, and the human mind.
I have been a write.as user for a long time, but this is the first time I am using the publish via email feature.
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.

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.
“We have the power to hold no opinion about a thing and to not let it upset our state of mind—for things have no natural power to shape our judgments.” —MARCUS AURELIUS, MEDITATIONS, 6.52
I stumbled upon this quote the other day when reading The Daily Stoic, and I was surprised at how relevant this is today, especially for those of us who interact on social media, though this can be extended to anyone who owns a TV or reads the news from national newspapers.
