Hi there, my name is Ryan Broderick and I write Garbage Day. It’s a newsletter about the internet and it comes out every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Everyone loves to blame every bad thing that happens these days on the internet. And to be honest, most of it is true. But the web is still good and this newsletter is your regular reminder that, actually, being online is still pretty fun!
Garbage Day is for folks that remember growing up in the west wild of AIM and Kazaa and message boards and know that, even though it’s probably politically destabilized most of the planet, the internet can still good and fun.
