  1. What Makes Countries Rich or Poor? by Jared Diamond | The New York Review of Books

    Diamond reviewing ‘Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty’. an interesting read. Social change etc. I love that stuff.

  2. The Loves of Lena Dunham by Elaine Blair | The New York Review of Books

    I did enjoy this review of ‘Girls’, which I haven’t seen. Good on how samey most TV drama sex is, for example. I love TV reviews that are this thoughtful; common for movies, not for TV.

  3. Organizing Your Backbonejs Application With Modules - Bocoup

    I quite like some of this description of how to organise Backbone.js-based JavaScript. (UPDATE: Seems very overcomplicated, without quite explaining why, or how to use its structure in practice.)

    @spaceboy In the App Store. Lovely, simple clever word game.

    Have won eight games of Letterpress in a row. I assume I’m doing something wrong and now expect to be trounced but: COME ON!!

    @mattb What @tomtaylor said (as usual). I only use it as a place to keep them all, and is very handy.
