Yesterday's Internet Awakens


Where is my mind? It's been on ~your lights~ and some nascent projects and a war of stars I have yet to see, as of late. But I haven't forgotten the internets of yesterday, today, as we come around the very unlikely anniversary of this very feature and/or blog section and/or newsletter, depending on where and how you get it.

And as we approach the end of the year, looking back at what we've done and looking ahead at things to come, we pause to reflect while we circle back to our rituals filled with food, merriment and terrible year-end news listicles.
And stepping back, you can see how everything is connected.
Like string lights tied to trees.
It's a bright sight, if you let it shine.

As you might have noticed, we've been playing around with 360 photos, videos and virtual reality, so you can experience what it's like to be outside, apparently.  Or maybe, to bring you a perspective you might not get otherwise. We're starting to formulate some pretty neat ideas that incorporate journalistic uses for the tool.



Journalism!
