Longform musings on Recommended
After a summer break, we’re back with more longreads recommendations! This week, we feature the superkitty Lil BUB, a viewpoint from the real Larry of Orange is the New Black fame, the highs of sugar addiction, why it’s so difficult for us to spot our own typos and what exactly Gross National Happiness means. Happy reading!
Our thinking drone picks this week range from experimenting with OKCupid to the baby boom in the UK, the classic article from Rebecca Solnit on mansplaining before mansplaining was even a thing, how housewifing is a choice and just because you put a coding video in pink doesn’t mean that girls will be any more enthused about technology.
This week, the thinking drone’s roundup has gone all tech – well, kind of. Read up on Amazon from two different perspectives, both as the giant taking a shot at Hachette and a logistical wonder, explore what the future holds for libraries and find out just why tech companies put such stock in jazzy interiors. Finally, our last pick is Google poised to take over from Apple’s skeuomorphism (we had to look it up too).
