Roger Angell: Life in the Nineties : The New Yorker
Really lovely piece by 93-year-old Roger Angell about being 93. Have a read. (via Kottke) Phil Gyford
Happiness Is a Worn Gun | Harper's Magazine
Thinking about what it's like to carry a gun around, and pondering the arguments for/against gun ownership and open or concealed carry. Phil Gyford
John McPhee: Structure : The New Yorker
About ways to structure non-fiction, and the text editor he's always used, Kedit. A really good read. (via Migurski) Phil Gyford
How Britain exported next-generation surveillance — Matter — Medium
Finally got round to reading James's piece on Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras. It's odd to think of this vast network of vision and computation churning away monitoring live and historical movements of people, invisibly. Phil Gyford
Adam Green: The Spectacular Thefts of Apollo Robbins, Pickpocket : The New Yorker
(Jan 2013) Not only good on how Apollo Robbins does his amazing pickpocketing but I also liked its description of the different things he tries to make a paying (legal) career out of it. Phil Gyford
They’re Taking Over! by Tim Flannery | The New York Review of Books
About how jellyfish are filling the oceans, destroying everything else, and are really hard to fight (they're still a problem when they're dead). A bit longer and more interesting than the LRB review of the same book. Phil Gyford
Andrew O’Hagan · Ghosting: Julian Assange · LRB 6 March 2014
This very long piece about failing to ghost-write Julian Assange's biography is as good as everyone said it was. Phil Gyford
The Task Rabbit Economy
(Oct 2013) Suggestions for fixing non-Nordic Western (specifically US) economies. It's not technology, TaskRabbit et al, increasing inequality, but capitalism. Phil Gyford
Udacity's Sebastian Thrun, Godfather Of Free Online Education, Changes Course | Fast Company | Business + Innovation
Interesting to read about them trying to work out what kind of education MOOCs are best suited to (university? Pre-university? Professional training?). I start to think the traditional boxes are less and less useful. Phil Gyford
Amazon unpacked - FT.com
From February 2013, on the poor-quality jobs Amazon is creating and the disappointment of many local people near their Rugeley warehouse. There is, though, something to be written about people disliking Amazon's working conditions and fondly [...] Phil Gyford

Why People Really Love Technology: An Interview With Genevieve Bell - Alexis C. Madrigal - The Atlantic
The thing I love about Intel researcher Genevieve Bell is that she finds surprising things by looking at what's left out of the dominant narratives about technology. She finds data that's ignored because it didn't fit into the paradigm of, say, how [...] Kim
I Suck! And So Do You! | Karen McGrane
Programming note: This talk has been nominated as Best Conference Talk of 2013 in the .net Magazine Awards. If you like it, please vote for it here. This was not a talk I ever expected to transcribe and post here. April 19, 2014 at 12:00AM via Pocket Kim
