Back in May, I wondered “What comes next for journalism?” I’m still not sure, but I’ve found an answer about what comes next for me, at the very least.
What comes next for journalism?
How does the media make a living? That’s an interesting question these days, and it’s something I think about a lot.
Saint John, 1936 | Alexander Wetherell Thorne
My great grandfather was Alexander Wetherell Thorne, and I have to admit that I don’t know a lot about him. I do have a lot of incredible things from his life though, including some stunning old photos of Saint John, New Brunswick.
DJI Mavic 2 Pro review & video

Great Scott! Christopher Lloyd & Joel McHale are in Lego ads!
Okay, yes. Christopher Lloyd did an ad for the new Lego game, Lego Dimensions, and it’s fun for a little bit, but never mind that. Ultimately it’s a few moments of Lloyd doing his “Great Scott!” shtick (which, yes, I do love), but it doesn’t feel all that interesting.
Happy 15 years to me
