It’s now almost 3am. I’m working. Well, not at the moment. But I’m still at work.
Anyway, in celebration of the new month. Here are some links for you to read while I’m not blogging for the next few days.
- New York Times covers the magic of unpaid college internships: “Newspapers and business magazines are full of articles expressing exasperation about how the Millennial-generation employee supposedly expects work to be exciting immediately, wears flip-flops to the office and has no taste for dues-paying. However true this stereotype may be, the spread of the artificially fun internship might very well be adding fuel to it.”
- AIGA writes about the awful atrocities of the Bush administration against typography: “Karl Rove may be a brilliant strategist, but he knows absolutely nothing about good typography.”
- Another great McSweeney’s list: Mobile-Phone Models That Improve Upon the RAZR, SLVR, and PEBL.
- Awesome Shaq quote comparing the three guards he’s played with (Anfernee Hardaway, Kobe Bryant and Dwayne Wade): “The difference between those three is the Godfather trilogy,” O’Neal said in classic Shaq-speak. “One is Fredo, who was never ready for me to hand it over to him. One is Sonny, who will do whatever it takes to be the man, and one is Michael, who if you watch the trilogy, the Godfather hands it over to Michael. So I have no problem handing it over to Dwyane.”
- Russel Davies talks about the top 10 lies of planners.
- Jeff doesn’t like skunks.
- Momus is working on a new article about couples and surfing and looking for input. He’s got some thoughts: “I know that I don’t really watch TV any more. I’m online all the time. But whereas a couple watching TV, curled up on a sofa together, may have felt “together”, a couple surfing on two wifi laptops are visiting different sites, having different experiences. They seem more apart than together. The internet age feels less communal than the TV age did.”
- What would it look like if men were as objectified as women in comic books? Now we know.
- I’ve been trying to get up early and go to the gym every morning. I learned some tips from this article.
- Last, The Wages of Wins is a new book about analyzing sports through statistics. Luckily for all us sports fans, the book also has a blog. They recently wrote a great article about just how good Kevin Garnett is and more recently about the wonder that was Jordan.
That’s it. Got another few hours. Good night.
Update (6/1/06): It’s 4:30am and my day is now officially over.
