Welcome back to Hiatus!

The news, tech and science briefing that brings focus to a world of infinite information.

You’re receiving this email because you signed up for the Hiatus news briefing in the past.

We last talked about two years ago, when the Hiatus weekly briefing went on a hiatus of its own.

Today, the Hiatus briefing is back, with renewed focus and some big improvements. 

If you’re still interested in receiving my newsletter with a calm, focused look at each week’s news, tech, science and business, stay tuned.

Here’s what you can expect:

Hiatus is the calm, focused version of the news. No social media. No clickbait. No distractions. Instead, I’ll write a thoughtful, balanced, wide-ranging look at each week’s events, so you can be a fully informed, responsible citizen with just a few minutes of reading each week. 

That means you can avoid the slot-machine mindset of modern news web sites, and you can dramatically reduce your social media use, since you don’t have to worry about missing out on any big news. 

I’ll also add occasional deep dives into important areas of the news, as well as recommendations for books and other longer reads — the goal being to give you more opportunities for deep, focused learning so you’re not tempted to fill your time in the endless void of social media and non-stop news. 

I’ll be in touch soon with more about my plans for Hiatus and your first briefing. Free subscribers will receive an occasional briefing or special article. If you’d like to receive the briefing every week, plus all special deep-dive articles, you can become a member for as little as $7 a month.

See you next week,

Rob Howard
