“I remember when I blogged on Snarkmarket, years ago, I would change my posts ALL THE TIME. Not just typo fixes but make pretty substantial tweaks—clumsy language detected with the benefit of an hour’s reflection. Like oil paint; you can move it around for a long time. I loved it.

I had the strong sense (shared among bloggers? I think?) that changes made after more time had passed ought to declare themselves: addendums, interjections, “upon reflections”. Those were fun, too! Thinking out loud, or even—GASP—changing your mind in public.

I’m thinking of that rhythm because I’ve treated my latest newsletter (sent to the media+technology sub-committee) in the same way, and have really appreciated the ability to do so: [ “A coat check ticket, a magic spell: Minting digital art in a weird new market.” https://society.robinsloan.com/archive/art-objects/]

(I was fed up with not being able to edit and update emails, is what I’m saying)”
