This Week in Experimental Vol 77


Hello Experimenters!
Happy New Year, my friends! I am happy to report that I unplugged at the end of 2021 in preparation for whatever 2022 might bring. I was happy to find a couple of sweet notes from you, dear readers, when I waded into the accumulation of emails & DMs. Hearing from you is my favorite part of this ongoing project.
With love and gratitude,
