Weeknote 16 – Vacation

I’ve been on vacation and enjoying quite a bit

Work

The reason why this blog has been silent over most of July is simple: I’ve been on a much needed break back home in Iceland. Only two of those weeks were an actual vacation but it’s overall been a vacation that I needed very, very much.

Went on a short trip to Dublin. Travelled around Reykjanes. Spent some time in the family cabin. Took a few photos.

I didn’t read much or do much but I’ve been spending a lot of time talking, catching up with family in Iceland, and thinking about where I am in life and what I’m doing.

No major revelations but think I’ve got a much clearer idea of what questions I should be asking.

Reading and Media

Not much. Loads of sitting outside in good weather staring at beautiful landscapes.

Watched the new Spider-Man. It was pretty good as these things go although superhero movies have become pretty tired overall.

Do you ever wonder why a newly released open source project matters? Why it doesn't? How new or old standards or specifications affect your work? Why the web, tech, and publishing are the way they are?

This is an unapologetically political newsletter about tech, the web, and publishing—with context.

Because, to decide whether to use a piece of software, web standard, or open source project, you need to know why it‘s interesting, not just that it‘s interesting.
