Untitled Weekly Newsletter – Volume 1

I’ve been wanting to start some kind of newsletter-type-thing for a while now. Right in the middle of the year seems like as good of a time as any to do it, right?

I know most people send a newsletter out as an email, and maybe I’ll do that at some point if people are interested, but for now it’s just going to be a blog post. And what is it exactly, you ask? A way for me to share with you what media I’m consuming, ideas I’m pondering, and interesting things I’ve found.

Not unlike the wiley crow, I would like to gain your favor by bringing you little bits of detritus and arranging them neatly at your windowsill. Except instead of a pen cap, used bandaid, and particularly shiny rock, it is things from the internet. And instead of your windowsill, it’s your web browser (or RSS reader, if you’re cool and maybe starting to feel a bit old). Now all it needs is a name.

Oh, and also… the featured images are mostly going to be pictures of my cats. Anyway, here’s this week’s newsletter.

What I’m Listening To

In the latest episode of Brad & Will Made a Tech Pod they talk to tech journalist Wes Fenlon about self-hosted RSS readers, how RSS and Atom feeds aren’t dead, and how there are still a lot of great individual blogs out there.  (p.s. here’s this blog’s RSS feed)

What I’m Working On

On Tuesday I released the prologue and a short introduction of my new book The Signal. I’ll be releasing new chapters of it episodically on the blog as well as chapters from the preceding book in the trilogy: The Vault.

What I’m Reading

Star Wars: The High Republic – Light of the Jedi finally made its way to the top of my reading list. I was a pretty voracious reader of the Legends books as a kid, stuff like Dark Forces and the original Thrawn trilogy.

I was a little hesitant to crack open the first of the High Republic era books because man I really liked the Legends stuff and how could this possibly be that good?

Well, I’m glad I did because it’s actually fantastic. Maybe once I’ve finished the trilogy I’ll do a proper review.
