I’m not really complaining, but this is probably not what I would have picked if I were pop editor.

Facebook, always there to help

A screenshot from Facebook with the message, 'Jonathan, it's almost your birthday!'

Thanks, Facebook. Thanks for also reminding me what my name is, you’re a pal.

(Yes, they did use it as a call to action to donate to a charity, but I still find it a ridiculous hook.)


Because I’m the world’s worst instagrammer, this is my illustration of a lovely holiday in Thailand: the gathering of a legion of birds in wires, creating an absolute cacophony. (The sound doesn’t come through so well with the traffic noise, but it was deafening.)

An Excel error dialogue with the message, 'Sorry, Excel can't open two workbooks with the same name at the same time.'

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
