It’s summer holiday time in the northern hemisphere, and for the first time in a couple of years, I’ve actually been on holiday. We’ve been camping in a coastal valley with no WiFi and the merest sniff of 3G connection (if you climb part the way up a hill, and balance on a gate).
It was bliss.
I’ve been reading actual books and magazines while I’ve been away. And it felt good. A much-needed reminder of how stressful our always-on, constant distraction culture is.
But I’m back, and catching up on what I missed while I was away (and before I went away, if I’m honest). Here’s a first selection of things I found interesting.
I hope you will, too.
