welcome back again. I’m at the end of my vacation now and collected a lot of very interesting articles over the past two weeks that took me quite a while to digest. Most importantly, I learned that taking vacation regularly is an important thing for regaining motivation for work.

Here’s an important point: When looking through the funds of WDRL, I realized that the donations I got in the past months declined and now the project has only about 5% of what it needs to cover the costs of writing this newsletter. Why is it important? As I’m a 100% independent freelancer who doesn’t get paid by a big company for curating this resource, I rely on donations. And while I never reached 100% funding in the past, I’ll need to seriously consider other options if the project becomes extremely unsustainable (meaning less than 25% funded). So if you care about getting this newsletter nearly every week in a year, please give back some money—as a reminder this would be more than fully funded if every newsletter subscriber would give only 0,10EUR each month.
