🚀orbitaloperations.comD from@warrenelliss continues to be a fascinating view of a writer at work, contending with the internet, scheming.
I dream of a series of annotated screenshots of industry-specific software, e.g. custom CMSes, factory control apps, whatever Exxon uses
I love stuff like this. NPR's Trade Lingo: npr.org/series/3255046…
It's a true delight to see a favorite writer on a hot streak. @nicolatwilley is at this moment on such a streak. aeon.co/magazine/healt…
And I am so excited for the new challenges of television, live events, and bureau building with @ThisIsFusion.

I'm so proud of what @TheAtlantic did during my time there. It's in an amazing editorial and strategic position. I love the whole staff.

Oh wow. The makers of (the sublime) Monument Valley are working on a game for Oculus VR: wired.com/2014/10/a-gorg… /via @ibogost
However: "This is the last medium" is a great line (from Chris Milk) and makes a catchy title, but… VR is totally not the last medium.
I particularly like the callback to Eadweard Muybridge, and the notion of California as the birthplace of modern (mediated) consciousness.
This is the best writing about virtual reality I've read to date. @Carina_Chocano for @CalSunday: stories.californiasunday.com/2014-10-05/vir…
I'm just seeing it but @CalSunday is incredible. Completely the best. So amazed by the (tiny) crew who put it together.

My media diet at this point is basically @NYTNow, tinyletter.com/intriguingthin…, and @aeonmag
It's such a nice straightforward app without any Viral Mechanics, so I guess it depends on its happy users to just, you know, talk about it.
Couldn't be happier with @NYTNow. It's become my primary source of news and Cool Internet Links alike. itunes.apple.com/us/app/nyt-now…
I feel like a good way to teach the difference between grammar vs style is to talk about the spellings of Superman, Spider-Man, and Iron Man
