You Missed My Heart

Heard Mark Kozelek sing this in London the other week, and it was stunning. Really one of my all time favourites :-) 

Big and Bad

One of Ford’s senior marketing executives was even blunter: “The only time those S.U.V.s are going to be off-road is when they miss the driveway at 3 a.m.”

A really great read about SUVs and that part of the auto industry. 

Is Facebook Making Us Lonely?

“Facebook can be terrific, if we use it properly,” Cacioppo continues. “It’s like a car. You can drive it to pick up your friends. Or you can drive alone.” But hasn’t the car increased loneliness? If cars created the suburbs, surely they also created isolation. “That’s because of how we use cars,” Cacioppo replies. “How we use these technologies can lead to more integration, rather than more isolation.”

A really interesting read. Long for an internet shaped brain, but do try. Lots of interesting viewpoints on a fairly trendy topic.

Really nice article on Tesla, focusing on the Model S. My god I hope they are successful.
