Whatever your take on this, Tony Scott's thoughtful article in the NY Times is worth a read.

Lexus doesn't get it. Clearly, neither does its ad agency.

Jonathan Franzen's recent essay for the UK's the Guardian, "What's Wrong with the Modern World," is receiving quite a bit of backlash. As Maria Bustillos says in this article in The New Yorker, "Franzen has a real gift for getting people into a tizzy." She goes on to throw some support Franzen's way: "... what Franzen is railing against is not mere tech obsession but, rather, the intellectual and spiritual poverty, the weakness and the obedience, of soi-disant 'creatives' who buy what they’re told rather than rage against the machine, who are too infatuated with their wonderful little toys even to look up from them while the world burns. Very few of us aren’t at least a little guilty of that. Or a lot guilty.

"Even though Franzen is one of the world’s most famous and most talented writers, his genius consists in part of an uncompromising, austere, four-eyed skepticism about his own hype. He knows himself to be utterly, terminally square. And the cool kids, called out for their own vapidity and cowardice, can smell that kind of healthy self-doubt from about a mile off. He’s a very easy target."

Be still my heart...You mean a newspaper is HIRING, rather than FIRING, an arts critic?! Kudos to the Dallas Morning News.

Interesting (if much too long) article on "technology intellectuals," who "end up writing bad books because any interesting arguments they might have in them are overwhelmed by their need to position themselves in the attention economy."

Interesting reading on the origins of our sensitivity to sound, and on why we need quiet.
