The New Yorker magazine has been great lately. They are putting out one great issue after another.
Interesting Read from the issue of Feb. 6, 2012.
1. Working Titles by Leslie T. Chang, Best-sellers for a busy nation
What do the Chinese, some of the hardest-working people on the planet, read in their spare time? Novels about work.
2. The Story of a Suicide by Ian Parker, a gay freshman and the online world
I didn’t have an opinion about age limit or the lack of from all the big sites: Google, Facebook, Twitter. Until i read this article. The story illustrated a regrettable tragedy that could have been so easily avoided only if people involved actually “TALK” to each other instead of just living their life on line…
Given the fact that teens are cruel by nature, and they don’t understand their action will have consequences. The web just magnified the destructive force of their words many folds, maybe age limit is not such a bad thing, afterall?!
3. Out of the Bronx by by Ian Frazier, When private equity bought the bakery
Lastly, the cover is pretty funny. Its title is “The Big Game”. 🙂
