Nicola’s discovered that Jules Verne visited nearby Itilo in the Mani where she lives now, and she’s had a frustrating week with almost nothing working at her house, including the internet which is always a challenge for a digital nomad. Judith’s had an equally up and down week with news of possible impending digital homelessness, meeting up with an old friend and falling right back in as if the intervening 20 years hadn’t been lost. She’s been broadcast by Engel Jones and she’s decided upon an App instead of Patreon. Here’s a link to the Gumroad/Patreon comparison article she mentions in the show.
Focus of the Week
A focus was hard to find given so much going on by way of distraction and frustration. Facebook yielded nothing Loose Women-style, so J&N had a brief discussion around what constitutes an essential journey in the circumstances of Snowmageddon in the UK and extreme weather which puts lives at risk, not a normal thing for the UK at all so we have little practice at making that decision. Different thinking is required to calculate risks and priorities. Look after those you care about, be neighbourly and don’t put yourself needlessly at risk because it has a knock-on effect and can endanger the lives of others.
