Buy Rian van der Merwe a coffee


I write a weekly newsletter to help you cut through the noise and break down what’s happening in internet culture, the new tech economy, and the future of work.

Don't Mind the Fire is an editorial newsletter that chronicles how the internet is constantly changing the way we live and work.

The newsletter takes a few hours each week to produce, and I want to continue to give it the time and attention it deserves. To do that, I set up this page for those who would like to support the ongoing time, energy, and cost of researching, writing, and producing it.

All contributions go directly to covering subscription costs for the tools I use to collect and manage the content and the production of the newsletter. Perhaps most importantly, contributions keep the newsletter independent and free from advertising.

Thank you for your support!
