Categories: one tiny feed a day, with journalism hand-picked for you

In the Castle since: Fall 2015



we believe in the power of beauty of slower journalism. so we will hand-pick it for you. we do this to help you to regain your attention span and to be more curious. and hopefully even make a salary off of it one glorious day.



Why and When should I contact you?
if you know a great designer or programmer that is absurdly dedicated to slower journalism then please put us in touch. even if they’re mildly dedicated

Why do you do what you do?
our minds are beautiful things, particularly when filled with slower, calmer thinking. so I wanna help that in all the ways possible, be it through journalism, conversations, coaching or experiences.

Who is your target group?
curious people who want to regain their attention span

What/who is your inspiration?
many sources of inspiration, but brother Rolf is high on the list
