Friday News Dump

I had a pretty good summer.

I got to see some old friends in Portland and Seattle. I visited a few countries I’d never been to before (I’ll post pictures eventually). I wrote some fun pieces for The Baffler (most recently this digression about the Bud Light conquest of Colorado).

Autumn’s looking even better.

This week I picked up a publisher for what will be my first book-length work of journalism.

The tentative title is How To Make $30 Billion The Silicon Valley Way. The publisher is Metropolitan Books. The book won’t be finished for many months. And that’s about all I can say at this stage, except, maybe I’ll see you in San Francisco next year.
