Featured on Berm Peak!

Since I wrote about Berm Peak, its creator Seth Alvo has moved the subscription from Patreon to Substack and I followed over there. YouTube is great in many ways, but you get what the algorithm serves you - creators that displease the algorithm tend to see their income disappear and with that they tend to decide to spend their efforts elsewhere. Helping one of my favorite YouTube creators break free for $7/month was a no-brainer.

The Substack chat started with an invitation to post a picture of your bike, so I uploaded a photo of my now 19 year old bike. A little bit later Seth released a video about How the Bike Industry Takes Bike Photos, noting that just about all photos that they had received were way off-spec - wonderfully off-spec. And wouldn't you know, I was featured not just once (which was enough to celebrate), but twice!

NATO

Många har satt champagnen på kylning, men plocka inte fram den ännu. Det Sverige som går med i NATO är annorlunda än det Sverige som stod utanför NATO under det kalla kriget, men det NATO vi går med i är också annorlunda.

Wisdome

Wisdome Stockholm is a fantastic immersive experience. It was with curiosity mixed with skepticism that I bought a ticket to Vast 3D, expecting the cross-eye inducing 3D I experienced of a decade ago. Was I wrong? Absolutely. The 3D worked. The immersive 360 worked.

The Small Internet

Techies are just as prone to nostalgia as anyone else. In particular, they tend to be nostalgic for the time when the Internet was the domain of techies, when it was our little bubble.

Christmas Tree Flight 2023

The yearly Christmas Tree-flight by the Swedish Air Force passing over the royal palace. A yearly tradition, but this is the last time they'll use the SK60 (Saab 105) trainer, as that aircraft model is being phased out and replaced with the SK40 (GROB G120TP).
