Become a supporting member

To help the weekly newsletter thrive while remaining free for everyone, get monthly single-topic Dispatches, and make quarterly projects* possible. Consider supporting these explorations in tech, changes, and futures, become a paid member.

Monthly Dispatches are each focused on one topic in various formats; “signals” similar to the weekly, long form articles, and interviews.

With this membership, you support longer form content and more research, the variety and frequency will grow as membership does. The next stages I’d like to get to: making the extra dispatches more frequent, then perhaps a quarterly zine-ish compilation.

* So far in 2021, the upcoming library/archive
and the Getting Tech Right podcast.

The free Sentiers goes out weekly, except for a couple of weeks off around the holidays, three weeks off in the summer, and one or two other exceptions during the year. Member Dispatches will be going out once a month initially.

Payments / security

Payments and access are managed by Memberful, which is now a Patreon company. They’ve been around for a while and excellent newsletters and websites like Stratechery,, The New Consumer, and Craig Mod’s Special Projects use the same platform. Credit card payments go through Stripe. I don’t have access to any of your credit card information, other than transaction confirmations.


Issues of the newsletter are sent using Mailchimp. Google tracking is disabled in my Mailchimp account, although I do use their in-house tracking to get a bit of information concerning open and click rates, which helps me figure out what works.

And of course, if you have questions, comments, or critiques, don’t hesitate to contact me.
