Transportist newsletter is out
I sent out the first issue of my newsletter to more than 2000 people yesterday. You can sign up for the next one.
This is what it looked like: 0. I have a newsletter. You are probably getting this either because you signed up to my TinyLetter newsletter by hitting Click to Subscribe, or because I signed you up since you and I have exchanged emails or business cards at some point. (Or perhaps someone forwarded it to you, in which case, please DO subscribe if you like). If you don't want to get this newsletter, feel free to unsubscribe (see bottom of the message), my feelings won't be hurt. With regards to format, I am keeping this pretty simple, which is I hope robust to different email apps, makes sharing easier, and so on. I will more or less only report things from the last month (or since the last issue). 1.
