Artefacts is a newsletter is written by John V Willshire, founder of Smithery and creator of Artefact Cards. It features ideas, observations, evidence and signals pulled from the world in a way that allows for the connection and creation of new ideas. Small pieces, loosely joined, as David Weinberger said.

In any given edition the newsletter may feature new tools and innovative methods that we make or find, interesting people and shareable stories, or it maybe just be a collection of GIFs and reckons (and all the better for it). It is a regular newsletter, in the sense that it is always sent seven minutes before it is ready; never sooner, never later.
