Greek tragedy in an Amsterdam gangster family.
Long read on climate change, not without its critics online, quite a bit of cross analysis and reviews online if you want opposing points of view
this is good
Jensen looked up to ask if anyone else in his open-plan office of IT staffers had been so rudely interrupted. And as he craned his head, he watched every other computer screen around the room blink out in rapid succession.
A good Aretha obit
Even for those of us like me who usually switch off at the very mention of “Macca”, this is a great piece
More of a medium read but I like to read about city planning.
Rule #88 was the most interesting for me having never thought about the thickness of a boundary.
That BBC story on the Chinese internment camps
Interesting article. This is a great thread, long may it prosper.
Tom Justice was once a cyclist chasing Olympic gold. Then he began using his bike for a much different purpose: robbing banks.
Great read! Must do some work now...
Not sure if this is allowed, but I haven't actually read the whole article yet. However the opening few paragraphs are well worth it for their description of the ending of all life on our planet.
I know the reporting of this piece took place over 13 years. Plus it looks great.
This is good and reminded me of what a good book The Jungle is
Re-posting this here;
So this is by a healthy margin the best thing I've read so far this year: https://medium.com/@the_jennitaur/how-to-do-nothing-57e100f59bbb
Reminds me of this book and also made me think of a David Foster Wallace commencement speech about attention; which is an interesting example in microcosm of the public/faux-public commentary in that article.
At the time it was available as a transcript all over the web, but at some point it was published as a book which meant that suddenly it was no longer available, except in this one form in a very controlled way. Seems like the publishers have realised that it is going to be out there no matter what, so have published it online themselves. Also the cover chosen always amused me, as it seems like the person choosing it entirely missed the point of the quote.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
