[nonostantement #175] - a line through scotland / arab of the future / anom

Now with MORE tattoo robots!

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

Good morning from Barcelona, Joele here sending you the best links found online during the past week - met while working as a digital strategist for companies, brands and institutions.

Music soundtrack for this mail: Tricky - Poems and Trentemøller - Hands Down feat. jennylee (Trentemøller’s Blissed Out Mix). Always feel free to send me music recommendations, just reply to this email - they are more than welcome!


If you enjoy this newsletter you can show your support by:

  • “It’s also exhausting. I don’t know. I don’t want to jump on a social network and feel like I have to do work on it, and my feed is now people yelling at me that I have to do more to grow on Tiktok, but I don’t want to hear about that anymore, and I’ve unfollowed the ones I’d followed but I still get yelled at. Maybe I’m too old, or maybe I’m too used to my portable social network groups that I can jump between apps on.” - TikTok and the Algorithmic Promise of Virality

  • Instagram announced what it found: removing likes doesn’t seem to meaningfully depressurize Instagram, for young people or anyone else, and so likes will remain publicly viewable by default. But all users will now get the ability to switch them off if they like, either for their whole feed or on a per-post basis.


That's it for now.
