Daring Fireball: Skipping the Web

is great. I love the web. I continue to publish my life’s work on the web. But what the web is great for is only what it was designed for: publishing HTML pages. For everything else, the web is a kludge, and native apps provide a superior experience.

Visions of the beyond at the Lucerne Festival | Music | The Guardian

It was sometimes difficult, even painful, to witness this progress of unadulterated musical spirit. Every note of both symphonies was staged somewhere beyond: removed from the conventions of how they are usually performed, set in a different place from the public realm they most often inhabit. There was no comforting worldliness in Abbado's vision of these pieces:

A wake-up call for those sick of politics - FT.com
"We have far too many MPs with far too little to do: there are 650 of them, when there ought to be half that number. No one in Parliament takes himself more seriously than the Speaker, John Bercow, accommodated at great public expense in the Palace of Westminster and in the fullness of time likely to be rewarded with a peerage. Bercow let slip last Christmas that in 2014 he watched Roger Federer play tennis no fewer than 65 times. Nice work if you can get it. … in politics, the precondition for advancement is a form of arrested development. The leaders of the two largest parties both went to Oxford, both studied philosophy, politics and economics and both worked as political advisers. The choice is between a man who went to the same primary school as Boris Johnson, and one who went to secondary school with him."

We are not edging up to a mass extinction – Stewart Brand – Aeon
"No end of specific wildlife problems remain to be solved, but describing them too often as extinction crises has led to a general panic that nature is extremely fragile or already hopelessly broken. That is not remotely the case. Nature as a whole is exactly as robust as it ever was – maybe more so, with humans around to head off ice ages and killer asteroids. Working with that robustness is how conservation’s goals get reached."
