Down the Pipes is a weekly, semi-private newsletter from digital troublemaker James Del. Expect mostly-coherent musings on media, culture, technology, business and society, mostly via links to other amazing writers, creators, journalists, and producers who are making great stuff.

Sometimes I just write diary entries or republish old Xanga blog posts from High School. You know, the kind of stuff we published online back when the internet had some teen angst behind it.

It'll be forever free for the first thousand subscribers, a number that we're rapidly approaching. Go ahead and sign up for the “free” subscription tier now for lifetime comped access, before I put a full paywall around this thing. Your paid subscriptions, though currently unnecessary, are hugely appreciated.
