Change and Continuity
What’s changed, what continues
TL;DR: The newsletter is now on Buttondown.
I’ve migrated the newsletter from Substack to Buttondown. Substack and Twitter are fighting, making it impossible for me to publish a Twitter centric newsletter here.
On buttondown the newsletter looks like it should, embedded tweets, and embedded URLs. There is an API so I can post automatically. It is cheaper than Substack. And the developer is really helpful. We took a few iterations to get everything working, but it is all sorted now.
Thank you for your patience while I got this figured out.
Q: I’m subscribed on Substack but not receiving emails from Buttondown, what’s that about?
A: Some people seem to have been aggressively unsubscribed during the migration. If this happened to you and it has not been resolved, please email me directly and I will correct it. email@example.com
Q: I’m paying for a Substack subscription, what do?
A: First of all, thank you. You don’t need to do anything. The Substack billing is paused and later this month I will be turning it off. Everyone has been migrated to Buttondown (and the new $500 a week price! Muahahaha! 🙃). If you canceled on Substack, there is a time of check time of use race condition. You may be still subscribed on Buttondown. I’ve tried to use the latest subscription data (May 1) but there is some room for error creeping in during the process. If this happened, let me know and I will fix it. firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: This is more of a comment actually, why haven’t you been posting long form security articles?
A: I’ve been distracted with doing this migration, but there is a significant backlog now so I’m hoping to get out some long pieces soon. There’s some cyber warfare theory, OPSEC, information conflict, and more!
