Links & Takes
By M.G. Siegler • Issue #149 • View online
As we approach issue 150 (this is 149!), trying something slightly different. Well, really a combination of a few older ideas. Below this preamble – boringly meta tonight, I’m sorry – you’ll find 5-ish links with a quick summary/commentary. Below that, a couple links on a more focused topic (in this case, Paul Allen). And below that “cold takes” on a few more news-y items.
At various points in the past few years, this newsletter has been called (and built around) 5-ish links and “cold takes” (as opposed to hot takes). So I’m bringing it all back together. One thing I think this solves for: I often have things I want to link to, but because I don’t always have a long excerpt to share, they often feel lost in the mix. Or there may be a link to a simple website (as opposed to a piece of content) and it’s the same issue. So separating links (things I think you should definitely click on) from commentary (things I think you might want to click on if you agree/disagree with my thoughts on the topic) seems to make sense to me.
Thoughts, as always, are welcomed.
