👋 Welcome, curious mind! Before we begin...
Hi, I’m David, your diligent curator of all great things on the web. I’ve been writing this newsletter for more than 10 years, and it still brings me joy whenever new people sign up. So, great to have you! Some quick notes to make sure you’re all set.
1. Never miss an issue because of bad tech
Newsletters sometimes end up in people’s spam folders, or in «Promotions», «Clutter» or whatever your email provider calls it. To avoid this, add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contacts and move the newsletter into your main inbox if the first issue doesn't land there. Need help? Follow these instructions.
2. What to expect
Every Friday, I send out the Weekly Filet with my personal recommendations on what to read, watch and listen to. I try to always find a good mix of things that tickle and delight a curious mind. If you're interested, here's how I select them.
3. Support and benefit
The Weekly Filet is a one man effort. An ever growing community of paying members keeps me going. In return, they get the extended version of the newsletter, with 5 recommendations and a set of instant-gratification links (here’s an example).
You can upgrade when the time is right for you. If you’re ready to commit right now, here’s a special offer to you:
4. Get in touch
I love hearing from my readers. You can hit reply on any email that you get from me, to give feedback, to ask questions, to send inputs, or just to say Hi. I will always reply. Try it with this one and tell me in as few or as many words as you wish: Who are you?
5. That’s it — now let's read something great
You’re all set. I'm looking forward to sending you the first Weekly Filet next Friday. In the meantime: Try the Gem Shuffle for a surprise find of more than 2000 great links from the past 10 years.
— David 👋
