It’s a Theater, With Craft Beer and D.J.s Until 6 a.m. - The New York Times
The Yard opened in 2011 in a warehouse in Hackney Wick — a district of East London that was once run-down but has recently gentrified. The theater venue, with a 110-seat, purpose-built auditorium inside a former warehouse, was meant to be temporary; eight years later, it still has a rough-and-ready feel, all recycled wood and corrugated roofing. Beyond staging some of London’s most avant-garde theater productions, there is a large bar that hosts club nights for as many as 250 people.

Facebook adds a travel-planning feature called ‘City Guides’ | TechCrunch
Facebook has been busy with the app updates, as of late. In recent months, it has added new sections for finding nearby Wi-Fi, meeting new people, checking the weather, and more. Now, it’s rolling out yet another addition to the “More” menu inside the Facebook app: City Guides. A potential challenger to Foursquare, Facebook’s guides will show you a list of cities and which of your friends visited, along with various recommendations of places to go and things to do.

When you click into an individual city, you’ll see a row of rounded profile icons of your friends who have visited there. Tap on each one, and a list of the places they’ve been – like hotels, restaurants, attractions, and other businesses – will appear. This data is presumably being extracted from users’ check-ins and Facebook posts.

I'm a Tourist in Lagos. You Have a Problem With That? - Bloomberg View
Visitors should avoid the mistake of judging living standards through appearances alone, because that tends to overweight the value of infrastructure. Prague in the late 1980s looked pretty splendid, largely because of its historic buildings, but good consumption opportunities were hard to come by. South Korea impresses with its roads, bridges, ports and trains, but the widespread poverty of the country’s elderly is harder to see. As for Lagos, its infrastructure appears mediocre to Western eyes, and so we probably underrate its prosperity. But if you are arriving from the Nigerian countryside you might be impressed by the tall buildings and road network and thus overrate the wealth of the place.

61 Glimpses of the Future — Today’s Office — Medium
In the last five weeks I’ve travelled 7,000km overland through Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan’s GBAO region and China’s western provinces. After a year of working flat out the journey was part vacation, a desire to fill in few gaps of my knowledge of the region and a client assignment.
For those that don’t know, the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO) is a remote, sparsely populated, mostly Pamiri, Kyrgyz-speaking region of Tajikistan. The home to the Pamir mountains, it has decent argument for calling itself the “the roof of the world”.
I thought about separating this list into tech & behaviour, but they’re way more interesting mixed together.

It’s been six months since I moved to San Francisco from London and it’s been wonderfully disorientating.

Here’s a round-up of the most important* lessons I’ve learned so far.

Rides - Café du Cycliste
Nice, the home of Café du Cycliste, is a great base for exploring the Côte d'Azur and the Alpes Maritimes region. The city has a beach, world-class art galleries and hundreds of bars and restaurants, and it's easy to get out onto quiet scenic roads that will keep you exploring for weeks. Although it's the fifth-biggest city in France, it's easy to get in and out of Nice by bike, thanks to the seafront road and cycle path to the south and the hills to the north. If you want to climb out of town the quickest escape routes are via the Boulevard de la Madeleine or the Col de Bast. Also on the map is a selection of bike shops, including places to hire good road bikes. The city traffic can be hectic, but once you're on country roads, drivers are generally considerate, and the Tarmac is good. There are cafés and boulangeries in most villages, and many also have water fountains – we've included some on the map.
