Alt All In is a semi-automated newsletter serving marketing and technology links.
 
 

Attention

Alt All In is moving from its current domain, www.allin.wtf, to a new TLD, www.altallin.xyz, for reasons which I'll go into down the track. The email from address will also be updated to transmit@altallin.xyz. I'll keep you updated with the change and again, thanks for reading.

Motivation

Yes, I am editing, which is why it is semi-automated. And yes, I do understand the scepticism around the notion of information these days, be it real or fake, but what I am culling is mainly double-ups of information as a lot of the sources end up reporting on the same things. See, the funny thing about information is, there’s never enough unique stuff going around.
