Sorry. I’ve been/am still away. I had high hopes of using this time for productive things like blogging and resolving, but instead I’ve used it for more enjoyable things like golfing and dawdling.
So in the absence of anything new to report, here are a few things I’ve stumbled across while away.
An excellent Economist article on the impact of technology on the newspaper industry.
A nice interview with Glenn O’Brien (GQ’s Style Guy) via A Continuous Lean. He’s a former columnist for Artforum and Details and an irritatingly broadly interesting guy (though I violently disagree with his views on the acceptability of wearing a button-down collared shirt with a double-breasted jacket).
An amusing (and accurate) suggestion that Jane Austen would likely have been an enthusiastic twitterer.
And a couple of paintings, from Eric Zener, that seems to perfectly capture summer.
