Now with an easy address to donate Ethereum: joele.eth!

Welcome to nonostantement: a weekly newsletter with realedgy and sweet stuff found all over the Internet.

Hello there,  Joele here. I'm sorry for the cryptocurrency world but obviously having managed to register a .eth domain I caused a total collapse that burned billions of dollars. It was all because of me. I am still living in Barcelona, doing my usual job and sending you interesting links, like every Sunday.

If you enjoy this newsletter please forward it to your friends - or you can now offer me a virtual coffee to show your support :) OR.. you could donate Ethereum directly to joele.eth - HOW COOL IS THAT? Please let me know if you need help ;)

As a soundtrack I recommend Semper by Mario Batkovic one of the many cool artists releasing on Invada, the label founded by Geoff Barrow (Portishead, BEAK>, yes that guy).


If you enjoy this newsletter you could donate Ethereum using the address joele.eth - gas fees are usually really low on Sunday morning, so this could be the right time to do that!

  • It is important, from time to time, to remind ourselves of the ten principles for good design of Dieter Rams.

  • “White yoga influencers and brands have monetized South Asian cultural traditions for decades. Now, they owe a debt to a country in crisis.

  • I love the idea of 70 Over 70” podcast: conversations with remarkable people, all over the age of 70, about the big questions we all ask ourselves, no matter how old we are. What does it mean to live well? What are we still searching for? And how do we learn to let go? I hope to soon have the time to be able to listen to this podcast (for now I am sending it to you because I trust where I found it ;) )

  • [In Italian] - In the last few days in Italy there has been some discussions about the gender neutral pronoun "they". A lot of people make fun of it basically for a translation error in Italian - I found this guide enlightening… and made me feel very ignorant, but I now know more about it - hope it can help you too :)


That's it for now.
