Ending the Weekly Digest

This is the 150th - and for now last - issue of the Weekly Digest. It started on June 7th, 2019 as my personal quest to learn more about personal data management. Almost 3 years later here some statistics:

  • 1920 Posts
  • from 242 different authors
  • annotated with 512 tags
  • amounted to 2.95 million website requests from you fellow readers (based on the logs starting in autumn 2019)

Lately, writing the Weekly Digest became more and more of a burden and therefore, I decided to take a break now. A big Thank You to all who participated in this journey: translators, guest contributors, all different kinds of supporters, and readers.
