I follow 165 people on Instagram. A handful of these are what might loosely be described as ‘celebrities’: people famous for things other than social media.

Recently Facebook has started to recommend these people to me as potential FB friends. Only: they mostly go by pseudonyms, presumably so fans or trolls can’t find them by searching their names. But it’s obviously them. Their Facebook and Instagram accounts must be linked.

There are many ways to remain private on the internet, but The Dreaded Algorithms are killing these off as well.

Sweden is going cashless, with an unexpected consequence. Thieves are now focusing on high-value goods and outlandish crimes, like stealing Apple products from moving trucks, and dealing in protected species. A single great grey owl can sell for $120,000 on the dark web.

I’ve started a new playlist on Spotify of things that catch my attention. 20 songs, old and new, various genres. 2 or 3 songs added each week. Follow if it’s your sort of thing. Send me your suggestions!

I’m finding Fonts In Use to be useful not just for identifying which typefaces are used and where, but how they combine with each other. Lots of font pairings that sharply contradict the advice and guidelines I’d previously read, but that look absolutely great together.
