The Agenda for Friday, January 24, 2020

Hello, and welcome to the all-new version of The Agenda! I’ve changed up the technologies that power this thing and hope that Substack will be a great home for the newsletter. The format will stay the same — each week I’ll be sharing 10 things I’ve found interesting and that I think you’ll like, too.

Let me know what you think!


  1. I’d like to share a few internet archives worthy of your consideration: first, all of the video game console logos since 1976.

  2. Next, the (Unofficial) Apple Archive and NotesKey, “the quick reference guide to Apple's keynotes.”

  3. And finally, a photographer named Bugsy (true story) took a photo of every Michigan sunrise in 2019.

  4. Since my last issue I finished the entirety of the first season of The Mandalorian on Disney+, and it was just fantastic. Can’t wait for season 2 this fall.

  5. And here’s what happens when you mix the music of Stranger Things with The Mandalorian theme.

  6. Lastly, imagine Mando as a spaghetti western, and you’d get this trailer.

  7. Let’s keep the Star Wars updates going: over the Christmas break I saw The Rise of Skywalker twice in the theater. Loved it. Iconic designer Louie Mantia followed up the release with this awesome thread of SW film logos.

  8. Playdate lives! Panic in December pushed out this update on their adorable little handheld.

  9. And speaking of Panic, they have a podcast now. The first episode is all about indie game Untitled Goose Game, and now I need to check that out on Switch.

  10. Lastly, Seth Godin shared this amazing Google Sheet for doing magic with Amazon URLs.

Tweet O’ the Week 🏌️‍♂️

The 2020 PGA Tour season* started yesterday, and I’m just a little excited.

*That is to say, Tiger Woods played his first competitive round of 2020.
