Episode 256 is a linkshow. Per and James discuss two articles that have grabbed their attention – We discuss dealing with shared and public touch screens plus the trend of publishing content as newsletters.

Article one is What should we do about public touch screens in the Covid era? by Mario Noble. “So what we really need to address are some of the business problems for when people can’t (or don’t want to) put “finger to glass” anymore but you have these touchscreen-based devices you’ve purchased and would still like to leverage.”

Our second article is Newsletters; or, an enormous rant about writing on the web that doesn’t really go anywhere and that’s okay with me by Robin Rendle. “So my question here is a difficult one to ask, because I love newsletters so very much…but is this progress? It bothers me that writers can’t create audiences on their own websites, with their own archives, and their own formats. And they certainly can’t get paid in the process. (Although yes, there are exceptions).”
