The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #17

🔫 In the wake of the latest shootings, this piece on what a bullet will actually do to your body seems prudent. It’s not visual in the sense that you’ll get photos (don’t worry), but it’s a pretty harrowing read.🕵️ Thousands of sites are logging what you type…


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #16

🪦 Vangelis is dead. One way or another, I’m sure you’ve had his scores as the soundtrack to your life. I sure know I have. Thank you for the tunes.🤖 It’s only fitting to follow up on Vangelis with another cyberdeck, called the Framedeck. This isn’t a Raspberr…


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #15

🕵️ Twitter has released a game to teach you about privacy. I like the idea, but the actual game, well, nah.🦃 Speaking of Twitter, it seems Elon Musk is reluctant now, because there might be too many fake accounts. Then again, if he does indeed reverse the ban…


The #BoredHorse🐴 – Issue #14

🤦 Let's get Elon Musk buying Twitter (a company that can't count, it seems) out of the way first.


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #13

🦃 Elon Musk can pay for Twitter, question is, will Twitter sell? Jeff Bezos bought Washington Post, Musk buys Twitter, it kind of makes sense. There’s no doubt in my mind that Twitter as a social platform would thrive under Musk, I’m just not sure if that’s a…


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #12

📦 This old post surfaced a little while ago: A collection of old Swedish product packaging.🌋 Drilling deep into the Earth's crust to harness geothermal energy? Sure, why not.🇷🇺 Who has Putin's ear? That's not entirely clear, even after reading this piece. Let…


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #11

🪦 A certain iconic agent's grave (!) is located on the Faroe Islands, and you can go look at it, because tourism is everything.🏰 On that note, you can buy the Scarface mansion. Or rather, it's for sale, but you'll need a proper wallet to actually buy it.🏝 Jef…


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #10

🇺🇦 Fellow Swede Anders Östlund lives in Kyiv. This is how it's like, these days.🇷🇺 A lot of companies have withdrawn from Russia, but not all. Who's good and who's bad? This list lets you find out.You'd think European countries, and the EU, would've thought t…


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #9

🇷🇺 Marina Ovsyannikova is the Russian Channel One employee that did the live protest. I've read several stories about her, and yet I still see tweets and posts calling it fake. Not that I understand why it should or would be, what's to gain from Putin's side,…


The Bored Horse🐴 — Issue #8

I decided to get all the war stuff out of the way first, because there's obviously a lot of interesting things written about it. If you're feeling war fatigue, feel free to take care of yourself, and scroll down to the beautiful fox. No, that's not a euphemis…


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #7

🇺🇦 NiemanLab has a list of sources to follow the war in Ukraine.📬 Want to write a letter to Vladimir Putin, to tell him what you think? Sign it like this, maybe?🤪 Working at Meta? Well, then you're a "metamate". I feel sorry for you.🔠 Wordle is now on New Yor…


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #6

🦞 You should pick up the fuck cancer bundle on Humble Bundle, 13 games for $10 (or more, do pay more, if you can), and all proceeds benefits the Swedish Cancer Society.🕵️ Microsoft is taking the high road, and are adapting their app store approach before legi…


The Bored Horse🐴 – Issue #5

I'm trying something new this week, re-arranging a bit in this issue. So, let's start with the linkage, shall we?


The Bored Horse🐴 - Issue #4

For the first time since the inception of the Bored Horse website, I missed a weekday (Thursday, if you're counting). I hope you can get over the disappointment, forgive me, and move on.This is what I actually managed to publish this week.


The Bored Horse🐴 — The third one

I published five posts on Bored Horse this week, including the linkage links from last week's newsletter. That one got a bit of commentary, so you might want to check that out. Oh, and I should know better than titling a post "is smaller actually better" with…


The Bored Horse🐴 — This is #2

True to form, I've got four posts on Bored Horse for you to read. I'm posting daily, Monday-Thursday, and then this newsletter hits on Friday. That's the plan, for now, at least.


Say hello to The Bored Horse🐴 — #1

Yeah, I'm going to cheat a bit, because I actually started publishing on January 1st, which was last week, but since there wasn't any newsletter back then, I'll include said posts.From old to new, here we go.
