  1. Olympic Races, in Your Neighborhood - The New York Times

    Very nicely-done (couldn’t be simpler) thing showing you how long and fast races are from your address. A bit like BERG’s old How Big Really.

  2. The Entrepreneurial Generation - NYTimes.com

    This is good - this generation’s “thing” is starting small businesses. “Our culture hero is not the artist or reformer, not the saint or scientist, but the entrepreneur.” Although it falls apart a bit when suggesting hipsters have only been around for 15 years. (via Waxy)

  3. LRB · John Lanchester · Let Us Pay

    On the future of the newspaper industry. Many good nuggets, including: “New York Times, if it stopped printing a physical edition of the paper, could afford to give every subscriber a free Kindle. Not the bog-standard Kindle, but the one with free global data access. And not just one Kindle, but four Kindles. And not just once, but every year.”

  4. Tea Party Lights Fuse for Rebellion on Right - NYTimes.com

    interesting article on the “Tea Party” Right in America. Also scary. Hadn’t realised how much they had in common with crazy paranoid Patriots.

  5. Op-Ed Contributor - For Sale - The $100 House - NYTimes.com

    This is fascinating, showing a way the make-up of parts of cities could change drastically due to the recession. Although I wonder whether the journalist is extrapolating from an isolated one-off incident. (via Kottke)

  6. Article Skimmer

    NY Time’s prototype news viewer. Nice idea but it equalises the importance of all but one of the stories. I want a newspaper to tell me what it thinks is important (even if it’s wrong). Otherwise it’s not a newspaper, it’s a database.

  7. Breaking Through - New York Times

    Just because I find it interesting what movies make a performer’s reputation, and in some cases makes it harder for them to different roles later. (via Kottke)

  8. Colleges and Universities - Education and Schools - Engineering - Technology - Science - New York Times

    Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering sounds different in a good way. “Learning the skill of how to learn is more important than trying to fill every possible cup of knowledge in every possible discipline.” (via Blech)

  9. Roger Federer as Religious Experience - Tennis - New York Times

    I have no interest in sport but David Foster Wallace always makes tennis fascinating. Not that I’ve got round to reading this yet. (via Kottke)

  10. Bad to the Last Drop - New York Times

    Tom Standage on why you’re an idiot if you buy bottled water when you could drink tap water.
