What I’ve Been Up To: Cheerful Reminder + Product Comms Club

I just sent out this email via my sporadic newsletter.

Hi everybody,

I hope you’re enjoying springtime!

Exolymph is going steady, and it’s sprouted a surprisingly active chat group. If you like talking about artificial intelligence and related sci-fi topics, I recommend joining. But the real reason I’m emailing you is that I recently launched two new projects:

I feel kind of skeezy about trying to sell you all something, but on the other hand I truly believe that I can deliver value far in excess of $35. Any serious businessperson who buys Product Communication Basics will be getting a great deal, especially if writing and idea distillation are not their area(s) of expertise. Even if you don’t consider yourself a serious businessperson, the workbook could help you pitch your side projects and improve your communication skills in general.

Here’s another possibility: Exolymph has amassed enough subscribers that small-scale sponsorships would make sense. If you’re interested in doing that, just hit reply and let me know. I gotta make this pay at some point ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As usual, if you’re working on something cool, I’d love to hear about it!


Yet Another New Thing: Announcing Exolymph

I just sent the email below to my newsletter subscribers. You should join their ranks! Because I want you to! That’s a good reason, right?

Dear everyone,

I am a serial project-starter. I always tell myself, “This is the last time! From now on I’m just going to concentrate on my own website!” But no, I’m incapable of doing that. I suppose it’s okay. Eventually I’ll hit pay dirt (ugh, I really hope so). Tradeoffs Press is still live, sort of, but I’ve lost steam. Balm Digest continues to exist, in a weird new form, albeit neglected — no steam there either.

Actually, I haven’t lost steam. That is inaccurate. The steam has just been directed elsewhere. It’s been directed to Exolymph, a cyberpunk newsletter that I launched recently. I am really enjoying this endeavor, and if you’re interested in computers and RAD TECHNO-DYSTOPIAS, you might like it too. Go ahead and sign up here.
