+Franz Critchlow sweet ride isn't it!
When we first drove the new #Porsche Turbo S, it was literally too fast for our eyes. The way the four-wheel-drive, four-wheel-steer monster put down 553bhp and a ludicrous 553 torques and proceeded to shoot us towards the horizon made us momentarily blind.

+Tom Standage does a great job explaining that all that is old is new again!  He researches history to discover that social media is in fact very old media!  It is well worth a watch if you are interested in how ideas propagate.
