Snippets

I always loved Twitter for the sheer convenience of sharing the weird thought flashes that my brain produces all day, every day. Not everything warrants a long form blog post. But the platform has become, in lack of a better word, toxic. I also don’t want my brain flashes exploited for marketing, although I still have to find one social media platform that shows me ads according to my interests. So – here is my personal stream of consciousness, without the strings of Social Media attached to it.

I spent today working on re-releasing Beginnings, which has found its way into a pretty PDF and is already uploaded to the website. Now I just need to build it an equally pretty page. Let’s hope that won’t take me another year to finish. ย ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Receptors

Things my brain ponders before we are even vertical: Are there humans with more than three colour receptors? ๐Ÿค”

GDPR

Worked all morning on the construction of a privacy policy – regulations surely take the fun out of owning a private website.
