Last week in Sweden my old reboot friend Guy Dickinson popped over from Copenhagen for the afternoon and we spent an afternoon and evening drinking dreadful tea, eating Caribbean food and catching up on each others lives since the last reboot.
Several times Guy mentioned his ravenous consumption of reading material through Instapaper, to the extent that when I got back to Canada this week I suggested to Guy that he blog about this. And so he did. It’s an interesting and comprehensive post in the “how I use the tools I use” school, and if you consume web text you should read it.
I mentioned to Guy that it wouldn’t be such a bad life to “simply spend my time asking my friends to write about things I’m curious about.” He replied “Like a newspaper editor?” If I could run a newspaper like that, then yes. That would be a lot of fun, and probably the best and most interesting newspapers and magazines are exactly that.
