Succession: The rise of HBO’s new must-watch show - Vox
But the deeper season two goes, the more Logan’s monstrousness is treated as critical to the formation of his children. They long desperately to be loved. But what they get, mostly, is a sense that they have no control over anything in their lives. They spread that lack of control outward, to everyone around them. They are a ruling class that does not understand what it means to rule, much less how much that damages everyone they come into contact with, because all they have known is damage.

The Surprising Benefits of Being (Slightly) Crazy
The inherent risk of living at the edges of the human endeavor is what drives new ideas and, ultimately, progress. We need people who are not only creative enough to see the world in new ways, but also delusional and crazy enough to believe their ideas are neither delusional nor crazy. As the famous Apple ad used to say, “Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

Forget Robots. The Breakthrough Technology Will Be in Your Car. - Bloomberg

Zen and the Art of Hotel Living by Glenn O’Brien
  Hotels clear your head. A long-term stay in a hotel is a vacation from your stuff, all that detritus of your personality that reinforces who you are. Staying in a place that reflects your taste only in the abstract, that you have no responsibility for, is a real palate cleanser, a psychic relief from responsibility. You wake up and have breakfast delivered. You take a shower and throw your towels on the floor. You get dressed, have your laundry picked up, go out, and voila: you return and your pajamas are no longer on the floor, the empty wine bottle is gone, and the bed is made. Think of all that time and energy you can use for thinking instead. You’re like a yogi in a mountaintop cave, but with much better food.

The Sopranos, glorious pioneer of today’s TV golden age | Dorian Lynskey | Opinion | The Guardian
Twenty years on, prestige TV has attained overwhelming dimensions, empowering scores of creators who couldn’t have thrived in the rule-bound world of pre-Sopranos television. While the success of The Sopranos was made possible by the economics of cable channels, DVD binge viewing and episode-by-episode TV criticism, affluent streaming platforms such as Netflix have opened the floodgates. The vast amount of brilliant, idiosyncratic television that we now enjoy is due in no small part to David Chase’s refusal to be full of shit.

Diversity Is an American Strength, Not Weakness - Bloomberg
Those of the same mind as Tucker Carlson will claim that all this success comes in spite of diversity, rather than because of it. But there’s strong evidence that through repeated contact, diversity leads to greater social trust and lower discrimination between people of different backgrounds. And the correlation between organizational diversity and performance might also come from this difficult but rewarding strengthening process.

Opinion | The New Socialists - The New York Times
The socialist argument against capitalism isn’t that it makes us poor. It’s that it makes us unfree. When my well-being depends upon your whim, when the basic needs of life compel submission to the market and subjugation at work, we live not in freedom but in domination. Socialists want to end that domination: to establish freedom from rule by the boss, from the need to smile for the sake of a sale, from the obligation to sell for the sake of survival.

JRA with the Angry Asian: Enough with the e-bike hate already | CyclingTips
“We now have an entirely new crop of bicyclists that will bring their buying power, advocacy, and potential lobbying ability. Let’s embrace them. Families with young children are already the exposed at-risk trail user amongst cyclists, inline skaters, joggers, and idiots. Let’s not use a few anecdotes as data. The mountain resorts face this same battle in the 80s with snowboarders and skiers squaring off on the slopes. The ‘careless’ snowboarders were ruining the experience for skiers in the minds of those consumers who had used the mountains and snow for enjoyment. As it turns out, the new sport of snowboarding brought investment from outside the endemic brands. In economic and environmental downtime, [snowboarding] may have saved a resort or two. In no plausible scenario does growing the pedal equipped two-wheeled transport hurt cycling as a whole. I’ll take a novice on a bike at a US assisted speed regulated to 20mph all day long, but I’m less optimistic that the influence of the bicycle curmudgeon will wane so quickly. Enthusiasts are genuinely threatened by e-bikes and their riders.”

Land Is Underrated as a Source of Wealth - Bloomberg
But even with somewhat different numbers, the broad lesson would be clear -- over the long term, housing has been a great investment. That doesn’t mean that investors should ditch their stocks and run out to buy houses -- liquidity is a real issue, property taxes are substantial and it’s harder to diversify a real estate portfolio than a stock portfolio. But it does mean that a wise investor should diversify into land by buying things like real estate investment trusts.

The more important implication, however, is for inequality. To some degree, housing acts as an equalizer between the rich and the middle-class, since the latter puts more of its wealth into real estate by virtue of buying homes. But many big landlords are very rich. And homeownership is a way that the middle class and upper-middle class pull away from the working class and poor, a larger portion of which can't afford to buy and must rent. The ownership disparity is also responsible for a big share of the racial wealth gap. As economist Matt Rognlie has found, the return to land is responsible for the lion’s share of the increase in wealth inequality documented by French economist Thomas Piketty.

So in order to address wealth inequality, it’s important to focus on land. Even after the rise of the modern corporate economy, unequal ownership of the most basic and ancient asset of them all is still creating big divisions in our society.

The future of America’s suburbs looks infinite – Orange County Register
New technology, as well as the growth of work at home, can create the basis for more sustainable suburbs, and, if estimates from the consulting firm Bain are correct, enough momentum that by 2025, more people will live in exurbs than in the urban core.

There Was No ‘Golden Age’ of Air Travel - The New York Times
There’s no denying that airlines today could and should do a better job — at communicating, at treating their customers with dignity and respect. I’m well acquainted with the nuisances of modern-day air travel: I don’t enjoy claustrophobic planes, delays, noisy airports or wasteful security practices any more than you do.

But those good old days, maybe, are more mythical than we admit. Do you really want to travel like people did in the 1960s? Are you sure? No, you don’t have to love flying. But you shouldn’t take it for granted, either.

Why Amazon is eating the world | TechCrunch
This all said, I believe that Amazon is the most defensible company on earth, and we haven’t even begun to grasp the scale of its dominance over competitors. Amazon’s lead will only grow over the coming decade, and I don’t think there is much that any other retailer can do to stop it.

The reason isn’t the bullet-point moats that are talked about in headlines, and it isn’t the culture of innovation or Bezos’s vision as CEO (though I do think Amazon’s culture is incredible and Bezos is the most impressive CEO out there). It’s the fact that each piece of Amazon is being built with a service-oriented architecture, and Amazon is using that architecture to successively turn every single piece of the company into a separate platform — and thus opening each piece to outside competition.

Silicon Valley: A Reality Check | Slate Star Codex
I don’t want to downplay the problem. Anything remotely good in the world gets invaded by rent-seeking parasites and empty suits. Silicon Valley is no exception, and raising awareness of the infestation is certainly a public service. But for some reason, it’s hard for me to believe that – let’s say Deadspin – really believes in the spirit of Silicon Valley, really thinks that there was once somewhere that weird nerdy people could get together and produce amazing things for the good of everybody, and that to some degree this is still going on, and is a precious thing that needs to be protected. At its worst, some of their criticism sounds more like a worry that there might still be some weird nerds who think they can climb out of the crab-bucket, and they need to be beaten into submission by empty suits before they can get away. Or maybe that’s just paranoia. Fine, I admit I’m paranoid. But I still feel like people should lay off the criticism a little.

Why Germany Still Has So Many Middle-Class Manufacturing Jobs
Only about 1.1% of the world population is German. However, 48% of the mid-sized world market leaders come from Germany. These firms, which I call “Hidden Champions,” are part of what makes German economic growth more inclusive: by my calculations, they have created 1.5 million new jobs; have grown by 10% per year on average; and register five times as many patents per employee as large corporations. And they are resilient: my estimate is that in the last 25 years no more than 10% of them disappeared or were taken over, a distinctly lower percentage than for large corporations. Nearly all of them survived the great recession of 2008-2009.

Moreover, Hidden Champions have also contributed to the sustainment of the German manufacturing base, and it is in large part thanks to them that nearly a quarter of the German gross domestic product continues to come from manufacturing. The percentage in most other highly industrialized countries such as the U.S., the UK, or France is only about half of this. The effect on employment is enormous. Manufacturing creates jobs at home and at the time same allows companies, through exports, to participate in the growth of emerging countries.

The Golden Age of TV Was Born in the 1980s -- Vulture
Now that talent and vision have become values to be cultivated instead of irritations to be managed or stamped out, the personalities of individual creators have become much stronger. Networks, cable channels, and streaming services have figured out that if you turn creativity into a cult of personality, you can get the audience interested in the storytelling as well as the story. They’ll second-guess what just happened, compete to guess what’ll happen next, and speculate on how all the pieces fit (or don’t). Storytellers as aesthetically and temperamentally dissimilar as Louis C.K., Noah Hawley (Fargo), Donald Glover (Atlanta), Kenya Barris (Black-ish), Pamela Arlon (Better Things), the Duffer Brothers (Stranger Things), Ryan Murphy (every other show on TV, seemingly), and Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy (Westworld) can all be discussed now as artists and storytellers who are very much in charge of the worlds they devise, executives’ notes notwithstanding.

The Third Transportation Revolution – Medium
Or look at San Francisco, where the historic Ferry Building was blocked for decades by a two-level freeway. Since locals couldn’t really get there, it became a rarely-visited office building. But when the road was damaged by an earthquake in 1989, the city saw an opportunity. Instead of rebuilding the space for cars, it tore down the highway and reimagined the area as a place where people could gather. Shops, restaurants, and cafes were built, and before long the Ferry Building became the focal point of the San Francisco waterfront. Every weekend, almost 25,000 people visit its farmers market and support local vendors. As a result, new neighborhoods emerged, and within five years, there was 51% more housing available in the surrounding area.

Beyond the iPhone | Stratechery by Ben Thompson
The truly wireless future that Ive hinted at doesn’t just entail cutting the cord between your phone and your headphones, but eventually a future where phones may not even be necessary. Given that Apple’s user experience advantages are still the greatest when it comes to physically interacting with your device, and the weakest when it comes to service dependent interactions like Siri, that is a frightening prospect.

And that is why I ultimately forgive Schiller for his “courage” hubris. To Apple’s credit they are, with the creation of AirPods, laying the foundation for a world beyond the iPhone. It is a world where, thanks to their being a product — not services — company, Apple is at a disadvantage; however, it is also a world that Apple, thanks to said product expertise, especially when it comes to chips, is uniquely equipped to create. That the company is running towards it is both wise — the sooner they get there, the longer they have to iterate and improve and hold off competitors — and also, yes, courageous. The easy thing would be to fight to keep us in a world where phones are all that matters, even if, in the long run, that would only prolong the end of Apple’s dominance.

In 1946, the same year that letter was published, he received an honorary degree from Pennsylvania's Lincoln University, the historically black school that was the alma mater of Langston Hughes and Thurgood Marshall. In a speech at the school that was not covered by a mainstream American press that otherwise couldn't get enough of him, Einstein called racism "a disease of white people":

Apple, Google, Amazon, and the Advantages of Bigness - The New Yorker
When you look at some of the companies that had big market capitalizations twenty years ago, you may feel some reason to question the Big Five’s ability to hold on. Back then, Cisco Systems, Microsoft, and Intel had the greatest value on the market among technology companies. But, the way I see it, the bigness of today’s Big Five gives them an opportunity to keep building larger moats around their platforms. For starters, these companies are able to hoard data, which allows them to become smarter in learning about their customers. Because of their leviathan-scale operations, they have the infrastructure and resources to write algorithms and make their platforms more effective. A

In praise of failure — Benedict Evans
None of this means that failure is good - failure is horrible and painful for everyone. You're not supposed to fail. Nor does it mean that doing stupid things is good, nor that screwing up is good. It certainly doesn't mean that no tech company that failed ever did something stupid or screwed up, nor that no VC has ever made an investment that they shouldn't have. People screw up in tech all the time. But failure is part of risk, and failing, by itself, does not mean that anyone was stupid, or screwed up. Failure just means you tried.

How Copenhagen Became A Cycling Paradise By Considering The Full Cost Of Cars | Co.Exist | ideas + impact
When the city decides on a cycling project, it compares the cost to that of a road for cars, and it includes not only the upfront amount, but also things like the cost of road accidents to society, the impact of car pollution on health, and the cost of carbon emitted to the atmosphere. After including these factors, it comes to a rather startling calculation. One kilometer driven by car costs society about 17 cents (15 euro cents), whereas society gains 18 cents (16 euro cents) for each kilometer cycled, the paper finds. That's because of factors like the health benefits of cycling and the avoided ill-effects of cars.

Laissez-Faire in Tokyo Land Use - Marginal REVOLUTION
Rising housing prices are not an inevitable consequence of growth and fixed land supply–high and rising housing prices are the result of policy choices to restrict land development.

The policy choices were made–they can be unmade.

The Times editor John Witherow on how its paywall is paying off – and why he thinks the Guardian will now follow its lead | Media | The Drum
Six years ago, in a debate on BBC Radio 4, Alan Rusbridger, then editor-in-chief of the Guardian, faced off the then Sunday Times editor John Witherow and described the new digital paywall model established by the Times and the Sunday Times as a “vault of darkness” which might generate as few as 60,000 subscribers.

Sony’s Profit Surprise Highlights Hirai’s Gaming-Led Renaissance - Bloomberg
Sony Corp.’s resurgent games division helped the Japanese conglomerate blow past quarterly results expectations, vindicating Chief Executive Officer Kazuo Hirai’s growing focus on media and entertainment.
Sony, which in years past has scaled back in businesses from phones to TVs, posted a surprise profit for the June quarter. It more than doubled operating income from the sale of PlayStations and software, a particularly optimistic signal given the company’s next marquee products haven’t yet come to market.
Sony is looking to cement its lead over Microsoft Corp. and Nintendo Co. by launching a virtual-reality headset in October in the U.S., as well as a souped-up version of the PS4 potentially before the end of the year. The twin gadgets mark Hirai’s long-term effort to dominate the industry with the PlayStation division, which he helped launch in 1994 before being tapped as CEO.

'Get yourself a bike, mate!': how cycling is challenging Santiago's social barriers | Cities | The Guardian
Cycling is now shedding its ‘loser’ image in the Chilean capital, and bikes are enjoying a renaissance. This movement around the city has, in part, brought greater social mobility, and is bridging long-term class segregation

Google is making better apps for the iPhone than for Android | The Verge
Here’s a thing I didn’t really expect to write: I’m finding that I enjoy Google’s apps more on iOS than I do on Android. Or more specifically: I think that there’s more interesting innovation coming out of Google’s iOS app teams than on Android — at least for the moment.

How to Promote Legal and Social Change: Lessons from London Cycling Campaigns |
We like to think of social change as a rolling snowball, that it builds speed and momentum as it goes. And maybe, at some point, it is. But for the decades before that, it’s a child learning to walk. Teetering, spinning, going backwards, falling down.

It’s not clear that this “cycling revolution” in London is going to last. Social change of any kind is fragile. Britain has, understandably, more pressing issues to focus on at the moment. Maybe in 10 years biking will be gone and the new lanes Boris built will be filled with self-driving Razor Scooters or something. Or, maybe London will finally be as safe and fun as Amsterdam to bike in. But at least, finally, campaigners have figured out the right thing to ask for and the right way to ask it. Campaigners for other issues should make sure they’re doing the same thing.
