New Name; Yin/Yang Logic/Feelings; Other Apes; Autonomous Robotic AI; and Proper Anecdote

… Well, if you’re going to change something, you best do it quickly.

And so I have. I won’t bore you with the details, but the previous name of the newsletter wasn’t thought through very well. Whether, or not, that’s the case now, welcome to The Swagger anyway.

swagger.freetheanimal.com

The 2nd change is that you may have noticed this is coming to you, not on its regular Tuesday, but Thursday. For reasons that, again, I won’t bore you with, the actual and potential length of a 5-article newsletter transmitted over email primarily, argues for splitting it in two. So rather than 5 articles once per week, it’ll be three articles twice per week. That’s one additional article to write, but splitting the task into two makes 6 total articles feel easier than 5 if that makes any damn sense. With that, I get a lot more length flexibility, should I go lengthy. It’ll also be easier to toss a Free Bonus! article in the mix, like today.

So, each Tuesday and Thursday morning NYC time, you’ll get 1 free practical knowledge article geared to be substantial, and two articles behind the Premium Subscriber Paywall. Premium subscribers end up with the additional article each week (thanks for the steady inflow of 1 Starbuck Subscriptions), so a total of 2 substantial articles per week for the free-is-best crowd, and 100% more for the get-what-you-pay-for crowd.

This Thursday:

  1. The Yin & Yang of Messaging With Logic or Feelings
  2. Free Bonus! “Just Like Other Apes”
  3. We Have Autonomous Robotic AI And You’ll Be Blown Away (I thought this was years off; it’s here)
  4. How to Make Anecdotes Proper and Relevant (different than just, “my story”)

The Swagger is an email newsletter at swagger.freetheanimal.com. It’s also a post category here at FreeTheAnimal.com. If you’re a member here, nothing to worry or think about. It’s just another post here, three times per week. If you’re not a member here, but you want the free content, which is several free articles per week, then the only place to access it is over there.

I started writing Free The Animal in late 2003 as just a little thing to try. 20 years later, turns out I've written over 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from diet, health, lifestyle...to philosophy, politics, social antagonism, adventure travel, expat living, location and time independent—while you sleep— income by geoarbitrage, and food pics. I intended to travel the world "homeless," but the Covidiocy Panicdemic squashed that. I became an American expat living in Thailand. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. ... I leave the toilet seat up. Read More
