Λινξ 168: Πράγματα Για Διάβασμα

19 February 2015 | 1 σχόλιο

1. Πάρα πολλές λέξεις για το σχεδιαστή της Apple, Τζόνι Άιβ

Πάρα πολλά πράγματα μαθαίνει κανείς, είναι αγιογραφία, αλλά αξίζει να αφιερώσετε ένα μισάωρο και να το διαβάσετε όλο.

His father, Michael, now retired, was a secondary-school teacher of design and technology, and then a government adviser on design education. Ive’s mother was a theology teacher and, later, a therapist; his younger sister became a consultant for nonprofits in London. Marc Newson sees an economic similarity between Ive’s upbringing and his own. “Neither of us came from particularly privileged backgrounds,” he said, when we met. “A lot of what I’ve done has been an effort to try to have the things that I didn’t own when I was a child.” Newson was carrying a six-thousand-dollar Louis Vuitton backpack, of his own design. Ive, the owner of a jet, was twenty-one before he experienced air travel.

2. Τι μαθαίνει κανείς βλέποντας ρωσική τηλεόραση για 48 ώρες

Ο ρωσοαμερικανός συγγραφέας Γκάρι Στάινγκαρτ το δοκίμασε.

I will stay put in my 600-square-foot luxury cage, except for a few reprieves, and will watch TV during all my waking hours. I can entertain visitors, as long as the machines stay on. Each morning I will be allowed a walk to the New York Health & Racquet Club on West 56th Street for a long swim. Vladimir Putin reportedly takes a two-hour swim every morning to clear his head and plot the affairs of state. Without annexing Connecticut or trying to defend a collapsing currency, I will be just like him, minus the famous nude torso on horseback.

3. Λάρι Ντέιβιντ 

Θα συνεχίσω να σας βάζω λινξ συνεντεύξεων του Λάρι Ντέιβιντ μέχρι να το πάρετε απόφαση και να αρχίσετε να βλέπετε ό,τι έχει κάνει.

It’s one of the reasons I didn’t like acting. I don’t like not being able to interject. I don’t like waiting to talk. You have to wait for the other person to finish with his lines. But I have to say the rehearsal process, much to my amazement, has been fun. I enjoyed it. I didn’t expect to.

4. Ο Γιάνης Βαρουφάκης και ο Μαρξ

Από μια ομιλία του 2013, ένα ευανάγνωστο (και μακροσκελέστατο) κείμενο του Υπ.Οικ. για τη σχέση του με το μαρξισμό.

If my whole academic career largely ignored Marx, and my current policy recommendations are impossible to describe as Marxist, why bring up my Marxism now? The answer is simple: Even my non-Marxist economics was guided by a mindset influenced by Marx.

5. Τι είναι πραγματικά ο Ισλαμικός Στρατός, και τι θέλει 

Το πιο πλήρες κείμενο για τον ISIS που έχω διαβάσει.

Much of what the group does looks nonsensical except in light of a sincere, carefully considered commitment to returning civilization to a seventh-century legal environment, and ultimately to bringing about the apocalypse.
