      Ahoy, fellow German-learners. I used PourOver to make a feed for Deutsche Welle’s daily Langsam gesprochene Nachrichten: @lgnachrichten. Also on Twitter [twitter.com]. Go follow. (@berg @dalton)

        @sandwich One obvious counter-example to the gist of my point is Daft Punk mania swirling right now – but this could also be taken as an exception that proves the rule. An album-release as cultural event is something that used to be common. Now it’s rare.

          @sandwich The first iPods existed in a major-label world. The internet melted the majors. Music became disintermediated – no longer backed by big marketing campaigns. Many casual listeners deprioritised music because it was no longer being foisted on them.

            @dalton @berg Ok; thanks for the info. Hopefully we’ll be able to do this soon. Congratulations on getting to user no. 100,000, also!

              @dalton @berg Domain verification for ADN requires a link to alpha.app.net/name. Doesn’t seem to work with just app.net/name. Any reason why? Would be nice to have the option of using the shorter/neater link, and it would de-emphasise Alpha slightly.

                Idea! New internet rule: use of the word ‘meme’ is permitted only for people who have actually read The Selfish Gene.

                      My friends like to play things cool. From today’s inbox: “By the way, I’ve been hospitalised with dengue fever in Myanmar”. Not a lie.

                              Silence, yes, but what silence! For it is all very fine to keep silence, but one has also to consider the kind of silence one keeps.
