What's Happening

Back in the saddle tomorrow :)
curated content vs. clickbait content -- what is it doing to the audience? Sensationalist content rises to the top because algorithms cut human tastemakers out of the loop. I think this explains why the internet made porn more extreme.
In the US, out of a million different books published each year, 300 thousand of them are new titles. 700 million copies of books are sold each year and 130 million different books are in existence today. To stand out, a book must be 1 in 100 million in history and 1 in a million in the present.
NO POP-UPS ON SUNDAY! Really sorry, folks, but I’m not able to do Pop-Ups tomorrow :( The broken toe isn’t a problem, but the raging toothache overnight really is. I’m on antibiotics now, which if you know me isn’t anything I’m inclined to do except in extremis. Next week, Sunday 26th, will carry on as normal.

A guy I went to school with who owns a science/comedy salon/bar in NYC posted this sixty-year retrospective on the divide between literary and scientific cultures. I despise naive sci-comm, yet this has become the norm. Quantity has triumphed over quality.
