Spot the man behind the man! | radical wind
Men are experts at inventing personas. Their entire careers as life-destructors are always accompanied by hardly disguised attempts at hiding the fact that all they want and can do is to rape and kill, or torture women. But as it’s not possible for them to be something else than what they are, or let alone imagine what it’s  like not to be a man (= to be a woman), it always betrays who they are, anyway.

(146) Interesting read - The Good Ones - Quora
From its early days the big question about this site has been "can an almost unlimited supply of SiliconValley cash and hype turn a mediocre idea into a success?" The question certainly needs to be addressed again now that Quora has made yet another desperate business model pivot into a blogging platform.Before that Quora was going to be a Pinterest knock-off. Before that it was going to be a Q&A site to compete with Wikipedia. There have been one or two other lesser pivots that I have lost track of since 2009, but you get the picture. This executive team is clueless. It's really been no secret in the Valley that Quora's been a slow motion train wreck since pretty much 2010.

Anthony Bourdain Has Become The Future Of Cable News, And He Couldn't Care Less | Fast Company | Business + Innovation
A meal out with Bourdain typically involves three things. There will be engaging conversation, possibly touching on such subjects as the essays of Michel de Montaigne, 1920s surrealist films, and mixed-martial-arts combat. There will be booze, although perhaps in more modest quantities than his reputation suggests. And there will be food--some strange, all carefully prepared, and a certain amount involving animal innards that seem better suited to ninth-grade biology class than the dinner table.

Aral Balkan — Ello, goodbye.
When you take venture capital, it is not a matter of if you’re going to sell your users, you already have. It’s called an exit plan. And no investor will give you venture capital without one. In the myopic and upside-down world of venture capital, exits precede the building of the actual thing itself. It would be a comedy if the repercussions of this toxic system were not so tragic.

Should Airplanes Be Flying Themselves? | Vanity Fair

William Langewiesche explores how a series of small errors turned a state-of-the-art cockpit into a death trap.

Sinquefield Cup: One of the most amazing feats in chess history just happened, and no one noticed.
FIDE is, by all accounts, comically corrupt, in the vein of other fishy global sporting bodies like FIFA and the IOC. Its Russian president, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, who has hunkered in office for nearly two decades now, was once abducted by a group of space aliens dressed in yellow costumes who transported him to a faraway star. Though I am relying here on Ilyumzhinov’s personal attestations, I have no reason to doubt him, as this is something about which he has spoken quite extensively. He is of the firm belief that chess was invented by extraterrestrials, and further “insists that there is ‘some kind of code’ in chess, evidence for which he finds in the fact that there are 64 squares on the chessboard and 64 codons in human DNA.”

If you’re a software engineer working on server-side applications (a web application backend, for instance), then this book is for you. It assumes that you already know how to build an application and use a database, and that you want to “level up” in your craft. Perhaps you want to work on highly scalable systems with millions of users, perhaps you want to deal with particularly complex or ever-changing data, or perhaps you want to make an old legacy environment more agile.

The Book of Enoch as the Background to 1 Peter, 2 Peter, and Jude | Is That in the Bible?
Although the quotation of 1 Enoch in Jude 14–15 is often noted, the complex dependencies between 1 Enoch, Jude, and the Petrine epistles, as well as the general importance of the theology of 1 Enoch in the New Testament, often go under-appreciated. Taking a closer look at these books provides some insight into how early Christian authors adapted each others’ work and drew upon texts that were ultimately omitted from the Bible.
