Morning Briefing 13. Januar 2020 – Prophezeiungen // Carmageddon // Monthly

Guten Morgen,

So, am Wochenende habe ich im Rahmen der Erstellung der traditionellen Jahresprognose (für das letzte Jahr, s. hier) meine „Prophezeiungen“ für 2020 endlich mal aufgelistet, eine weitere Folge in der Serie „Carmageddon“ fertiggestellt und mein Monthly für Dezember geschrieben.
