The Art of the Recommendation - The New York Times
Samanth Subramanian, a writer who often contributes to the magazine, stumbled upon a small museum dedicated to journalism in a provincial Russian village called Zadonsk. He met Alexander Kosyakin, the proprietor — as you tend to at tiny museums of this sort — and he was, Samanth learned, a longtime journalist and collector of industry paraphernalia. He had also designed every last bit of the museum’s roiling, chaotic and bizarre collection; every strange diorama and visual gag was his creation.

Samanth found this refreshing. Places like the Met and the Louvre “promise an education; they offer, impersonally, to elevate us into their realm of civilization,” he writes, but museums like this join us “in slack-jawed wonder at the teeming weirdness of the world and what we’ve made of it.”

The Young Ones (Series) - TV Tropes
Worth a mention as a show which never relied on cliché to any extent; any tropes that popped up were usually subverted and double-subverted within minutes, if not seconds. The entire premise of the series, such as it was, was a particularly odd subversion of the Dysfunctional Family trope.

Fred Silverman (who would later head ABC, and then later NBC) made the decision to cancel most of those otherwise hit shows by mid-1971 in what became colloquially referred to as the "Rural Purge", with Green Acres cast member Pat Buttram remarking that the network cancelled "anything with a tree in it".

William Gibson: ‘I was losing a sense of how weird the real world was' | Books | The Guardian
“I was actually able to write Neuromancer because I didn’t know anything about computers,” he says. “I knew literally nothing. What I did was deconstruct the poetics of the language of people who were already working in the field. I’d stand in the hotel bar at the Seattle science fiction convention listening to these guys who were the first computer programmers I ever saw talk about their work. I had no idea what they were talking about, but that was the first time that I ever heard the word ‘interface’ used as a verb. And I swooned. Wow, that’s a verb. Seriously, poetically that was wonderful.

The Psychology of Nature | WIRED
Although Olmsted took pains to design parks with a variety of habitats and botanical settings, most urban greenspaces are much less diverse.

Instead, the typical city park is little more than an expansive lawn, punctuated by a few trees and playing fields.

I've got nothing against grass and Little League, but it's probably worth pointing out that, if you want to maximize the psychological perks of greenspace, this is probably the wrong approach.

I sometimes wonder if, when we look back at the mass cognitive mistakes of the 21st century, we'll worry less about the internet and multitasking - people have been multitasking forever - and instead fret about our turn away from nature.

Web 1.0 was - ideologically - the most healthy model for the internet we have ever seen, as it was decentralized and far less constrained by the jaws of capitalism. Web 1.0 was a glimpse into a sustainable, communal, anarchist internet that was promptly crushed by capitalism. Fan sites and webrings were communities in the real sense of the word - individuals voluntarily banding together in mutual interest and group aid to build a network stronger than the sum of its parts. It may sounds silly out of context, but webrings were actually a brilliant model of anarchist web communities - a show of support for your comrades and a pledge to assist each other when needed and in turn promote crossover. Giving people accessible/open tools and space to make their own websites and connect them together will always be healthier and more sustainable than closed, locked-down platforms run by capitalists. TBH the closest thing we have to a modern version of this model is the delightful Neocities project.

The designers crafting the world of tomorrow - BBC Reel
interesting speculative proposal - entirety of human civilization living in a single city the size of a US state, leaving the rest of the planet to become wild once more. not sure i think that's feasible, but curious about more futures that involve less technology and development.

also in this proposed vision where architecture responds to the machine eye: a group of car factory workers goes raving to blow off steam, using camouflage like that from A Scanner Darkly to avoid detection by autonomous vehicles and cameras.

Crunchyroll - Forum - Why do people enjoy Hunter x Hunter so much? - Page 4
1) It has a really slow tonal and pace burn, but keep with it and it pays off tremendously right around the Yorknew City Arc. It starts off a tad bit slow and pretty upbeat and cheerful. By around the 40th episode there's a drastic tone shift from "Wow, what a fun, upbeat show" to "Oh god...holy shit, did that just happen?"
2) Gon and Killua, our two MC's, aren't always in the center of the conflict or are the resolvers of said conflict. While these two kids are incredibly powerful, they realize that they are merely small sharks in an ocean with megalodons. Whenever they do have to fight and resolve the conflict, aka "Gon fights the big baddie of the arc", it really only happens once, and even then our heroes really have to out-think their opponents and truly earn their victories. '

3) It's variation in story arcs. This show drastically changes up it's episode formula from arc to arc. You get arcs ranging from shonen battle tournaments, video game/fantasy esque battles, a crime thriller, a political arc, and a small scale war.

Pointless work meetings 'really a form of therapy' - BBC News
More managerial jobs generate more meetings, but they are not about making decisions, says a study.

OK BBC, are meetings therapy or are they worthless?

I realize it is a boon to be able to hold two opposing viewpoints in one's mind. So perhaps the conclusion is BBC likes to report the culture of meetings.

My guess is somebody - or many people - are using a break between meetings to read about meetings.

Corporate Background Music Is Taking Over Every Part of Our Lives | Topic
something about the phrase "sanctifying background music by law"
Riders filed a lawsuit after D.C. streetcars and buses began piping in Muzak for commuters in 1948. The next year, in a separate case, New Yorker editor Harold Ross testified at a public hearing of the New York Public Service Commission about music in Grand Central Station. “The individual becomes captive of soundmakers and loses the right to choose whether he listens or doesn’t listen,” he wrote about the hearing in The New Yorker.

The D.C. transit case made it to the US Supreme Court in 1952, and the court ruled in favor of broadcasts on public transit, affirming the right of free expression for music providers and denying that it interfered with the rights of commuters—sanctifying background music by law.

Exploring How and Why Trees ‘Talk’ to Each Other - Yale E360
You used radioactive isotopes of carbon to determine that paper birch and Douglas fir trees were using an underground network to interact with each other. Tell me about these interactions.
I don’t think there’s ever going to be a shortage of an ability to form a network, but the network might be different. For example, there will probably be different fungi involved in it, but I think these networks will go on. Whether they’re beneficial to native plant species, or exotics, or invader weeds and so on, that remains to be seen.
