  1. Game of Thrones - The New Yorker

    About the design of aeroplane seats. Interesting. The firm it focuses on is on Worship Street on the Shoreditch/City borders.

  2. The Disruption Machine - The New Yorker

    Taking apart Christensen’s ‘The Innovator’s Dilemma’ and everything that goes with it. Very good.

  3. How Chipotle transformed itself by upending its approach to management – Quartz

    I don’t know why I love articles about the management of restaurants, and restaurant chains, so much.

  4. Pre to postmortem: the inside story of the death of Palm and webOS | The Verge

    I love this kind of thing, looks at the success and/or failure of technology platforms and products from the inside.

  5. The Case for Reparations - The Atlantic

    This was good. More about the case for having a discussion about the case for reparations. It was more affecting to me than, say, ‘Twelve Years a Slave’, which was too easily put in the “that’s just history” or “one person’s experience” buckets.

    @spaceboy I’m confused. They should make these buildings look *exactly* like giant versions of normal objects.

    @spaceboy Oh, I thought that was the Walkie Talkie?

    @aden_76 Good one, thanks!…

    @spaceboy I’ve never understood why it’s called the Walkie Talkie. I’m not sure what I’ve missed.

    Old Street station now contains a Moleskine showroom, a surf shop, and an incomprehensible Jamie Oliver/YouTube cocktail pop-up.
