How can we make a newsletter feel like a place instead of a thing?
"What makes a piece of software a “place” vs a “tool” or an “appliance”? I think some notion of limitlessness and nesting are necessary."
Another take is looking at the newsletter as a physical location with a map.
This is pretty well-trod territory and, while cool, not exactly what I mean by 'feeling like a place'
By a thing feeling like a place I mean a gathering place, a nexus of activity, interest, community. Every town has a place like that, a watering hole where people gather; a place that feels comfortable and charged.
