[Current Mood |tiredtired]

- Framed: A Mystery in Six Parts - this is excellent investigative work by the LA Times and one heck of a story! Straight out of a Lifetime original movie or something...

- When tech firms judge on skills alone, women land more job interviews - blind auditions are a great idea. The fact that that changed the number of women selected for an interview from 5% to 54% is about as clear a sign you can get that there's (conscious or unconscious) bias.

- The Leaky Myths of Snowden: Oliver Stone’s new movie about Edward Snowden is a fairy tale and a bore - pretty harsh, but he makes a good point that Snowden released a ton of info that had nothing to do with domestic surveillance.

- 11 Secrets to Staying Productive and in Control - I clicked on this link with low expectations because, come on, look at that title! But I actually enjoyed it. I think forgiving yourself is really hard, but important - instead of getting mad at myself I try to figure out how to not make that mistake in the future.

- How Did G.M. Create Tesla’s Dream Car First? - I didn't realize the Bolt was so competitive with the Model 3!

- What I Learned From Executing Two Men - a powerful editorial

- How to get people who installed a leaked build to stop using that build? - a funny story from Raymond Chen

- Can Teenage Defiance Be Manipulated for Good? - yes it can!

- What Can Hitters Actually See Out of a Pitcher’s Hand? - when you think about it it's pretty impressive that anyone is good at hitting off of a major league pitcher...

- Myst creator Rand Miller on his favorite puzzle that everybody hates - his new game, Obduction, is out now!

- SpaceX Is Cribbing From Boeing's 1920s Playbook - neat parallel!
