Welcome back to a slightly delayed 10th issue of this newsletter.
February, eh? Feels like everyone and especially our clients have woken up from winter sleep or gotten back from winter slopes. So lots of work, which is great. But that also means priorities and thus little time for reading and writing newsletters. Let’s make this quick, then.
This report from Davos by danah boyd is the only one I was looking forward to. Lots of great observations and reflections on an elite bubble that is trying to cope with a world, heavily influenced by Silicon Valley.
“What I heard left me conflicted and confused. In fact, I have never been made to feel more nervous and uncomfortable by the tech sector than I did at Davos this year.”
This is a wonderful portrait of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ book editor Chris Jackson. If anyone wonders what the role of a publisher in the age of self-publishing could be, Jackson is a prime example.
‘‘I know that it’s my name on the book,’’ [Ta-Nehisi Coates] added, referring to ‘‘Between the World and Me.’’ ‘‘I wrote that book. But I could not have written that book alone. Somebody had to pull it out of me.’’
…for sticking with me while I figure out how to stay in the habit of writing while workload picks up again. Because I really don’t believe in picking 3.
See you next week,
