As promised, here’s a quick newsletter about a thing I made. Plus just a little more the usual goodness! 

Coffee... and dice!
I’ve made a set of Coffee Brewing Dice, designed for the Aeropress. If you’re confused then have a look at this video, about the hows and whys. I’m proud of them, and I think they’re fun. Orders start shipping today, so we can get them to people for Christmas. You can buy them here: Coffee Brewing Dice. (As of writing this, about half of the one time run is now sold.)
I also made a couple more videos this week, one about past vlogs future videos (so meta) and one about An Espresso Roast Whisky.(There’s a little competition at the end of that one too)
Hard sell over, on to the rest!
Things You Should Read
- 52 things I learned in 2017. By far my favourite thing this week. Go and read it all.
- New Zealand’s War on Rats Could Change the World. (another hat tip to Spencer). 
- The beginning of silent reading changed humans’ interior life. Filed under: things I’d never thought about, but find completely fascinating.
- Digital scans of Japanese fireworks catalogues from the late 1800s. I don’t feel like I need to explain this one… (they’re in pdf form, it requires a little bit of effort but so very worth it)
That’s it for this one, short and sweet. Normal service (if I can claim it was ever that) will resume…
As always, thanks for reading!
