A new issue of »UX und Tollerei« has arrived and I have a new batch of interesting links and reads for you.
But before we get to this: With just hours to go before America goes to the polls tomorrow to elect the new President of the world's most powerful nation, all eyes are on Clinton and Trump. It's as exciting as it's frightening to me, especially as I'm someone who lives in Germany, a country with a moving history.
Racism, sexism, homophobia and all other forms of discrimination against people is something I highly oppose and won't accept. Therefore just thinking about someone, who has a record for supporting all those things, even has a chance to become President of the United States is a thought that scares the shit out of me.
This weekly newsletter is by far not known for it's political statements and comments, but it's also a non-filtered form of media with now over 2,800 weekly readers (and counting) from all over the world. It's my personal way of sharing with like-minded people for about nearly 2 years now and I just had the urge to leave you with the following tweet I saw the other day by Bastian Allgeier, which really sums it up:
»The US election is like watching a car crash in a months-long slow motion and hope until the very end that the car won’t hit the tree.«
