  1. The Knowledge, London’s Legendary Taxi-Driver Test, Puts Up a Fight in the Age of GPS

    This long, good article everyone linked to a while back is indeed long and good.

  2. Mr. Miller Doesn’t Go to Washington - Matt Miller - POLITICO Magazine

    “A candidate’s memoir.” Being a candidate sounds like even less fun than I ever thought it would be.

  3. CABINET // Whitewood under Siege

    Another good article I’ve finally caught up with via PaperLater. All about the big world of shipping pallets.

  4. The Ambush at Sheridan Springs — Medium

    “How Gary Gygax Lost Control of Dungeons & Dragons.” Possibly more detailed than it needs to be, but a good read if you are/were into that. I was, as a teenager, entirely oblivious to every bit of this, even though I played D&D.

  5. The Most Fascinating Profile You’ll Ever Read About a Guy and His Boring Startup | WIRED

    Got round to reading this piece about Stewart Butterfield and Slack. So nice to read about nice start-ups.
