A street in Copenhagen.
Another Sunday, Another Naive Weekly — Observations From The Internet Wilderness.
We are moving. When the leaves of the birch tree in our front garden turn from the current dark green colour to the tender yellow of the late fall, we will say goodbye to Wiedeweltsgade and our home for the past two years.
Our possessions are finding new caretakers. It feels right to downsize our belongings, and without revealing what’s waiting, we aim to remain light so that we can be carried by soft breezes like the dandelion seeds. Or migratory birds.

Chia writes about moving and saying goodbye to the things she has touched.

Trust is a Berlin-based institution assembling a considerable amount of people working across art, technology, and media.

In this interview, the three maintainers express some of the thinking and intentions behind it all.
With a silent nod to the Luddites, Sam Lavigne position a selection of his work in a narrative around sabotage for digital workers. The article is as enjoyable as Sam’s work, and his ending remarks about the corporate constructed digital self resonate deeply.
In our friendly celebration of roadside flowers it is time to vote between Resounding Website and You Are Laurel, Right? Remember that the selection is intentional, the pairing is random, and the voting criteria are for you to decide.
See last week’s result and follow the celebration here.
