Living in a lighthouse ☼ A briefcase monitor ☼ The world's greatest Range Rover
PLUS someone who's paying $300 a year for rent in Japan?!
Dear internet friends,
A quick note – this newsletter will now land every week some time between Thursday & Sunday. I’ve realised that I can make a much better job of it when I have that flexibility.
It’s a short update this week. I’ve had a week of back-to-back calls discussing pressing manor-acquisition-matters, primarily finding answers to the biggest question: how does one fund a multi million euro manor estate? There are many good answers to that question with varying degrees of eccentricity, and I’m excited to share further details with you on how we intend to proceed in the coming weeks. We’ll need a lot of help, and I hope I can bring a lot of you on this adventure with us.
I had a lovely time in Copenhagen last week speaking at Naive Yearly, telling tales of 20 years on the World Wide Web and the various virtual escapades I’ve been on (incl. earning my version of an MBA on Habbo Hotel). Much love to everyone I met there! If I can find the time I’ll do a little screen-recording video running through my presentation for anyone that might be interested.
Warmest wishes ☼
☼ Summer beach cruiser vehicles are most definitely my automotive fetish, and this 1968 Ford Bronco has me pretty hot & bothered… but not quite as much as the bespoke convertible Range Rover by Wood & Pickett, which might be the best vehicle I’ve ever seen in my life
☼ Copenhagen’s SPACE10 just published their Healthy Home report, detailing everything required to build a space which restores, protects and enables its inhabitants
☼ Londoners, it’s your last chance to visit sound system wizard Devon Turnbull’s ‘HiFi Listening Room Dream No. 1’ at Lisson Gallery
☼ LG’s new briefcase-screen-thing is kinda great? I think? I have no idea who actually needs this but I love it when a tech company comes out of nowhere with something unexpected. I’ve been thinking back to Nokia’s crazy years and wondering… did Apple take this from us?
🌴 Many further ramblings & internet discoveries below for premium subscribers 🌴
For $6 per month, approximately 10% of what you'd pay for a half-day stay in an Italian coast beach cabana, you can enjoy the premium, weekly edition of this newsletter – kind of a virtual beach cabana? I appreciate & love you dearly for the support.
