García Media → Is the blog as a genre in danger?
"A real blog is one that reflects one voice, is essentially unedited and causes the writer to experience butterflies of anxiety as he hits the publish button."

Celan Reads Japanese | The White Review
Engelse vertaling van een Japans essay over een Japanse vertaling uit het Duits. Zo wijs — "There are some who claim that ‘good’ literature is actually untranslatable. Before I could read German, I found this thought comforting because I was completely unable to appreciate German literature, particularly the literature of the postwar period. I thought I should just learn German and read these works in the original and then my problem with German literature would evaporate of its own accord."

Google’s Paris Tabriz Profile – Information Security Engineer Parisa Tabriz Interview – Elle
“Security Princess” is Parisa Tabriz’s official title at Google. Seriously. And yes, you can google that. “‘Information Security Engineer’ is just completely dry and boring and horrible,” she says of the HR-speak title, which indeed whitewashes what Tabriz does all day, which is to hack her employer—the single most recognizable entity of the Internet age—bad-guy-in-basement style.

I thought it was cute.”

The Real Story Behind Apple’s ‘Think Different’ Campaign – Forbes
In writing this story, I’ve drawn from handwritten, dated creative journals I’ve diligently chronicled throughout my agency career as well as files I saved from the 1997 Apple time period (being a packrat often proves useful). In these journals are countless pages of notes and concepts I jotted down during the process of trying to bring Apple back to prominence. I also found the original “To the crazy ones” television script I presented to Jobs, as well as a plethora of rough drafts.

While I’ve seen a few inaccurate articles and comments floating around the Internet about how the legendary “Think Different” campaign was conceived, what prompted me to share this inside account was Walter Isaacson’s recent, best-selling biography on Steve Jobs. In his book, Isaacson incorrectly suggests Jobs created and wrote much of the “To the crazy ones” launch commercial. To me, this is a case of revisionist history.

Being a Dude Is a Good Thing by @TMatlack — The Good Men Project
Here’s my theory, and it’s nothing but a theory. Men and women are different. Quite different in fact. But women would really like men to be more like them.
