Fawkward Podcast Beta ¶
In which Adam and I rip the Blackberry Storm a new one.

Let Detroit Go Bankrupt ¶
Mitt Romney(!) in the New York Times:
Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses. Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.
The Wrestler ¶
Aronofsky’s upcoming movie looks really intriguing. Great cast. Yes, that includes Evan Rachel Wood.
Private Ear Audio Theatre ¶
Not quite done yet, but I wanted to show off this design anyway. My friend Gabe did the wonderful graphics, and I set the text. I’m pretty happy with how the site has turned out so far.

The Lost Years & Last Days of David Foster Wallace ¶
David Lipsky has a great profile in memory of David Foster Wallace. (via Kottke)
