Quick gotcha: I moved this WithKnown site from shared hosting to a VPS yesterday, and today photos were not displaying and not uploading. Turned out that in the move the path to the Uploads directory had not changed. Fixed that, and all seems to be well again. I hope.

John Naughton's bookmark about the Douglas Bader story ("... these f***ers were in Messerschmitts") reminds me of the equally good, and possibly equally apocryphal, one about the celebrated Antarctic explorer Sir Vivian Fuchs giving a lecture in Leeds.

In his article A Problem with Apple News Sites, Gabe says: "I don't wonder why indie blogs are dying any more. Link posts are killing them." I'm not sure it is blogs that are dying, but I do agree that it is why most "independent" news sites are dead, at least to me.

At Vespertine, Jonathan Gold makes contact with otherworldly cooking. Is dinner for two worth $1,000?

[T]he sort of dining rooms that tend to do better on the World’s Top 50 Restaurants list than they do in the Michelin guide; the kitchens where the artistic imperatives of the chef tend to outweigh any questions of what a customer might want to eat; the meals after which a cynical diner, confronted with 20-plus courses of kelp, hemp and tree shoots, makes jokes about stopping for tacos on the way home.

Yeah. No.
