In the good old days, there was no full-text search for the web. It was all about directories; phonebook-like services (Yahoo being the most prolific, I assume) that categorized the web. continues this tradition, with a strong Indieweb flavour. But the most fun feature of the catalog is this Stumblizer, a “Stumble upon” functionality that opens a random page from the catalogue. As the warning text says: rabbit holes galore; but there’s so much quirkiness and creativity out there. These are the sites you won’t find from the “Trending” sidebar on Twitter.

I'm Sebastian, Sociologist and Interaction Designer. This journal is mostly about bringing toge­ther social science and design for inclusive, privacy-focused, and sustainable "human-first" digital strategies. I also tend to a "digital garden" with carefully curated resources.

My occasionally sent email newsletter has all of the above, and there is of course also an RSS feed or my Mastodon/Fediverse profile.
