Become a supporting member

To support the weekly newsletter, and get extra dispatches of deeper thinking, become a member of Sentiers.

The free Sentiers goes out weekly, except for a couple of weeks off around the holidays, three weeks off in the summer, and one or two other exceptions during the year. Member Dispatches will be going out once a month initially.

Payments / security

Payments and access are managed by Memberful, which is now a Patreon company. They’ve been around for a while and excellent newsletters and websites like StratecheryKottke.orgThe New Consumer, and Craig Mod’s Explorers Club use the same platform. Credit card payments go through Stripe. I don’t have access to any of your credit card information, other than transaction confirmations.


Issues of the newsletter are sent using Mailchimp. Google tracking is disabled in my Mailchimp account, although I do use their in-house tracking to get a bit of information concerning open and click rates, which helps me figure out what works.

And of course, if you have questions, comments, or critiques, don’t hesitate to contact me.
