I am in the process of approaching people to do tweet reviews on the Tuesday and Thursday. More on that if and when I get confirmations.
That leaves the Sunday slot still open (ideally, I intend to publish something every day on Outshine ). Any suggestions? For one, I am thinking out loud about an ongoing series of life in a brighter future — the antidote to the #futureJer posts on @thaumatrope which hail about an future gone to the dogs — and call it #fuje (#futureJet or #futureJets are too long for my liking, and ‘fuje’ has a nice ring, an exotic vibe to it).
However, I’m open to suggestions: post them in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
