Sunday Nostalgia and Oasis


6 September 2009

I like these two articles in today’s NY Sunday Times:

Former Simon & Schuster executive Joni Evans on publishing before Darwinian forces took over (she herself chose flight over fight) — “When Publishing Had Scents and Sounds.”

Alexis Mainland on subway readers (drat!  I’d been wanting to write this article myself).  I’d never thought of it this way before, but she makes the good point that the subway — absent cell or Internet connection — is the last oasis of low-tech, where reading, thinking, observing, napping, or listening to music are your best options.
