7 Things This Week, 2023-01-29
A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.
1️⃣ I have a thesis that everything might be a blog, but Hanki is right — context matters. I like what they have to say about the medium implicitly holding a message. [🔗 Hanki // hanki.dev]
2️⃣ This is my favorite kind of thing. This guy saw a need and filled a need. It’s easy to use and understand. And he made a shortcut for even more ease. AND it’s got a great domain. (TD;DR: This tool lets Mastodon links have the same easy-to-read rich link previews in Messages that tweets get.) [🔗 Tyler Hillsman // mstdn.link]
3️⃣ I don’t love linking to TikTok, but this is microphone demo by Becca Farsace was too good to not share. [🔗 The Verge // tiktok.com] (Via Robert Silvernail)
4️⃣ All I can say about this Sara Dietschy wedding video is “Wow.” So cute, and so well-done. [📺 Sara Dietschy // youtube.com]
5️⃣ Now that’s one photogenic bear! [🔗 Justine Calma // theverge.com]
6️⃣ Miranda is one of my favorite creators on the internet. I’ve previously linked to her videos on the Miranda in the Wild channel that she did for REI, but now she’s independently creating for her own channel, Miranda Goes Outside. She silly yet informative, and I love the joy for the outdoors that she shares with the world. [🔗 Miranda Goes Outside // instagram.com]
7️⃣ In an effort to get comfortable with sharing more, I decided to give BeReal a try. I keep missing the notifications though, so I haven’t gotten a good sense of it yet. I’d love to hear from folks if they have opinions! [🔗 Yours Truly // now.heydingus.net]
