Hello! The restructuring of the Vault is complete. It now houses the subscription-based content from Ithaka and Aim, so that you can access everything I have written with one simple subscription instead of two. ➰ μ•ˆλ…•ν•˜μ‹­λ‹ˆκΉŒ?

In terms of the navigation menu, not much has changed. Most pages will continue to have language-specific content. But this newsletter space here will be where I collect the panlinguistic news from my literal/figurative desk between any given issue and the previous issue. ➰ λ‚΄λΉ„κ²Œμ΄μ…˜ 메뉴 μΈ‘λ©΄μ—μ„œλŠ” β€˜ν•œμ•„μž„μ˜ λ³΄κ΄€μ†Œβ€™ λ•Œμ™€ λ³„λ‘œ 달라진 것이 μ—†μŠ΅λ‹ˆλ‹€.

Ithaka Dreaming

The prospect of combining all subscription-based content into a single Vault has influenced how comfortable I feel in front of the microphone.

Also, I changed the intro/outro music. The reason: I need to sufficiently differentiate between Ithaka O. and Aim Han. Otherwise, I'll feel like they keep overlapping and taking each other's "pie." ("Sufficiently" means that the difference can be so subtle that I am the only one who notices that difference. πŸ˜‚ It's mostly in my head anyway, this "taking of the pie.")

Anyway, I'm happy with where this is going!

Lastly, this is the fifth day of the Invasion of Ukraine. People who cannot control the cause and outcome of this situation are getting hurt and dying. Meanwhile, crooks are profiting. But there's an article from Fortune. It lists organizations that are accepting donations to support Ukraine. Perhaps the person who wrote this article did a fact check on whether these organizations are trustworthy or not.
