Two days after the DC insurrection, as the country was still processing the aftermath, MySpace co-founder Tom Anderson posted his second tweet of the past three years.


Hello everyone, sorry for the slight break in newsletters, I have been crazy busy with all sorts of things, and the newsletter kept slipping down my to do list, sorry! Second apology is that I don’t have that much content for you this issue for many of the same reasons 😅.

Enough excuses, here we go!

An interview with the co-founder of Raycast who I previously featured in a hands on stream highlighted to me that there’s a growing body of people interested in making native applications again.

Greetings all, the second in my new look newsletter, and folks seem to be receiving it well. If you enjoy what you read here, please share with your friends and colleagues, I’d appreciate it. 😁

Welcome to the new look to my newsletter! It’s not as tightly connected to my interviews, and features more links from me, organised loosely into different sections.
