Alpha - Week ending June 4, 2022


Welcome to the Alpha!

This is where I gather up all the things that were on my radar during the past week. If I feel they’re worth passing on, they end up here with a few thoughts of my own.

Next week’s Alpha goes live tomorrow. And I update it as the week goes on. Check back as often as you like.
