Commonplace Reading - Issue #25
By Adam Tinworth • Issue #25 • View online
Hello, you.
As I write this, there’s only a few hours left of 2018, and like most folks, I think, I’ll be pretty glad to se the back of it. It’s been a busy but challenging year, that’s left me determined to reshape the way I spend my time — and how I work.
This newsletter has been a terrible victim of that working year. I’ve managed to put out *checks notes* 6 issues of this newsletter over the year. It’s not what you’d call high volume, is it?
I am full of good plans to increase that in 2019, if only because I now have something akin to a mission statement for it:
Commonplace Reading is a newsletter founded on the principle that that “interesting” is just as important as “new”. Each issue will be made up of a range of links that I found interesting, whatever their age. No theme, no common point of reference, just good, surprising reading wherever I find it.
What do you think?
On with the links:

A video
I’ve been playing around with some new video the - the DJI Osmo Pocket. This video was entirely shot on that and edited on iPad Pro. I know the “pivot to video” has become a dirty phrase in the journalism racket, but the pace of technology is so astonishing in video capture, that there’s still plenty of work to be done here.
And finally…
Selfie with daughter, on the beach.
Selfie with daughter, on the beach.
That’s it for issue #25 of Commonplace Reading. I hope you all have a Happy New Year — if that’s what it is in your part of the world — and may 2019 bring you all you desire.
