Newsletter No.200 — Dec 11, 2021

The Pirate Codes ⊗ The Myth of Artificial Intelligence ⊗ Statistical Imaginaries

This week → The pirate codes ⊗ The myth of Artificial Intelligence ⊗ Statistical imaginaries ⊗ Super-apps are the future ⊗ Mycorrhizal fungal networks and the dataome

A year ago → A favourite in issue No.154 was Defuturing the Image of the Future (linking to my note since their site is down at the moment).

Two hundred issues! 1560 days since No.1 was sent out! In that time Sentiers has proven a great tool for thinking, for connecting with various people and discussions, and for opportunities. Like guest editing kottke.org and heading Offscreen, neither of which would have been likely without the ongoing ‘proof of thinking and curating’ that has been this newsletter.

Thanks to all the readers, all the members and supporters, all the repliers and sharers, it’s a pleasure to be able to spend my Fridays and make some of my living sharing with you week after week.

I had notes to write a few more things but in the end I don’t want to spend too much time on this, other than the round number it’s an issue like all the others. I will however close this eventful 2021 by heading out one week early, the newsletter will be on holiday break and back on Sunday January the 9th, 2022. Have a great festivus, wear your masks when you’re supposed to and see you in three weeks!
