  1. What Have Fourteen Years of Conservative Rule Done to Britain? | The New Yorker

    A good read, but what a mess we’re in. I feel even more hopeless about the country after reading this.

  2. A Teen’s Fatal Plunge Into the London Underworld | The New Yorker

    Good, sad, alarming read about an unsolved probably-not-suicide.

  3. A Coder Considers the Waning Days of the Craft | The New Yorker

    On AI’s effect on programming, but also good just on enjoying writing code. (via everyone)

  4. The Online Photographer: My Second Article for

    It’s such a pleasure reading his excitement about this article, and the difference between his blog posts and a New Yorker article. Lovely article too.

  5. How Civilization Started | The New Yorker

    John Lanchester on re-evaluating the ease of life for hunter gatherers vs settled societies. (via @cityofsound)

  6. Gerhard Steidl Is Making Books an Art Form - The New Yorker

    Profile of the German book-maker, a description that undersells this article. (via Russell Davies)

  7. #Vanlife, the Bohemian Social-Media Movement - The New Yorker

    But that previous Guardian article is nothing compared to these people and their lives as brand and product pushers. Ugh.

  8. Doomsday Prep for the Super-Rich - The New Yorker

    Grimly fascinating of course. At least there are a few people quoted suggesting that maybe spending money on making society less like to collapse might be a good idea instead. (via Kottke)

  9. The Mind of Marc Andreessen - The New Yorker

    Long May 2015 profile of Andreessen. Very interesting, although it only sort of points in the direction of any criticism rather than being critical about anything. (via @kevin2kelly)

  10. Jonathan Ive and the Future of Apple - The New Yorker

    Long profile and interview with Ive from around the launch of the Apple Watch.

  11. The State of the Presidential Debate - The New Yorker

    Interesting history of the debates and how they came to be what they are. (via @antimega)

  12. Who Are All These Trump Supporters? - The New Yorker

    A good read by George Saunders. “What unites these stories is what I came to think of as usurpation anxiety syndrome—the feeling that one is, or is about to be, scooped, overrun, or taken advantage of by some Other with questionable intentions.”

  13. Thrones of Blood - The New Yorker

    Clive James on ‘Game of Thrones’. Really good, so many great lines.

  14. Paul Ford on HTML5 and the World of Web Standards Bodies

    Nice description of how standards like HTML5 come to be, and why it’s important. (via Daring Fireball)

  15. The Rise of the Professional Cyber Athlete

    Interesting, long article about StarCraft II, profiling a professional Canadian player. (via @kevin2kelly)

  16. 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.

  17. The Disruption Machine - The New Yorker

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

  18. Joshua Foer: John Quijada and Ithkuil, the Language He Invented : The New Yorker

    (December 2012) This is mostly an interesting look at invented languages and one in particular. And there’s quite a sudden unexpected turn towards the end. A good read.

  19. 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)

  20. 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)

  21. 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.

  22. Can Hospital Chains Improve the Medical Industry? : The New Yorker

    About new ways large US hospital chains are trying to optimise things, but actually most interesting when talking about how The Cheesecake Factory does its logistics and training. (From August 2012 via ?)

  23. New Yorker | PressJunkie

    I’m not saying it’s great design, but I like that as an example of a very different front page for a WordPress site.

  24. Paul Haggis Vs. the Church of Scientology : The New Yorker

    Long, long article about Scientology, focused on the screenwriter/director Paul Haggis who left after 34 years. Fascinatingly weird.

  25. Goings On: Online Only: The New Yorker

    Syndey Pollack looked for “the ache” in stories. “It is the ache of having one chance at deep love in a lifetime of shallow loves, and losing it too early.” Yes, that’s it exactly. (via Daring Fireball)

  26. Profiles: Stealing Life: Reporting & Essays: The New Yorker

    Long article about ‘The Wire,’ the show which is so good it ruins all other TV for you. (via Kottke)

  27. The New Yorker

    There’s lots of pointing at the redesign but few pointing out that links look like plain text. Precious bloody designers thinking links look “ugly”, I bet. Hello? You’re making a website, not a magazine! Come join us in the 21st century.

  28. Gwenergy: Stage Fright

    A good New Yorker article on stage fright and how it affects different people.
