It's not quite this straightforward, but you can understand them going for this headline.
New research confirms what they say about nice guys.

History  - 
 
Hoboes (not 'tramps', and not 'bums') have their own unions and lingo, and they helped build the railroad system that enabled them to travel from state to state.
Despite the ever-widening wealth gap, most of us continue to grasp at the American Dream, which promises financial security in exchange for ...

New to me: Contributoria, a community for a crowd-sourced journalism of sorts. You can 'back' article proposals that interest you, and if you're a writer you can submit proposals for the community to vote on (plus you get paid).
Contributoria is an independent journalism community. The platform enables journalists and writers to collaborate on all aspects of the writing process, including commissioning, editing and publication.

Currently intrigued by the idea of 'commonplace books', AKA 'massive filing systems full of notes'. Read the 'how and why' first, then see more tips here: http://thoughtcatalog.com/ryan-holiday/2013/08/everyone-should-keep-a-commonplace-book-great-tips-from-people-who-do/
Some of the greatest men and women in history have kept these books. Marcus Aurelius kept one--which more or less became the Meditations. Petrarch kept one. Montaigne, who invented the essay, kept ...

Colin Greenwood: I was skeptical up until the moment when Thom drew me a picture of a computer with mechanical hands holding a guitar and I could sort of see it. How a computer could play guitar, I mean. Once I saw that picture, I was on board.
In the summer of 1996, Radiohead began work on a new album that would cement its reputation as one of the greatest and most innovative bands of all time. Though its first two albums had earned it a large fan base, for many people Radiohead was still just the band that did “Creep.” That would all change with “OK Computer.”

I just listened to the Alec Baldwin podcast interview with Thom Yorke. Love how he says he wasn't getting on with his guitar so turned towards electronic music.

News relevant to #longreads  and such - the FT is pioneering a 'Cost Per Hour' model for online advertising which could reward sites producing stuff people spend time on.

I'm aiming to do an edition of my newsletter (cough feel free to sign up http://tinyletter.com/stuartw cough) on good podcasts people may not be aware of. I'm trying to listen to as many as possible in the next couple of weeks. What ones do you recommend?

I really enjoyed this concise look at how we've become used to CGI in the movies, and the challenges this poses.
CGI has become wearingly dull and cliched. Can its deep weirdness be recovered and filmgoers’ minds stretched again?

I will never be able to get enough of the behind-the-scenes stuff at The Onion; or, for that matter, Clickhole articles. So this hits two of my sweet spots.
No judgment, but you waste a lot of time on the internet, right? Which means sometime in the past year or so, something like this happened: You’re on Facebook, and you see that a friend has shared an interesting-looking article, such as a map of the United States with the...
