??City Journal?? has a nice new design by "Goodfolk":https://goodfolk.agency/ of Chicago. Dig the topics list, both the titles and their order. And on mobile at least the article titling over the imagery is intense.
The guys at The Soul of Enterprise podcast interview "George Gilder":https://www.thesoulofenterprise.com/tsoe/gilder. I guarantee you he'll bring you at least some new perspective. It's about time.
"50 startups":http://uk.businessinsider.com/50-startups-to-boom-in-2018-according-to-vcs-2017-11 that will boom in 2018, according to VCs. An article at ??Business Insider??.
In these recent interviews by Maureen Dowd, "Jarod Lanier":https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/08/style/jaron-lanier-new-memoir.html is less interesting than "Tom Hanks":https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/11/style/tom-hanks-uncommon-type-harvey-weinstein-donald-trump.html.
This is a video of "a talk by Pamela Jerome on restoring the metalwork on both Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Guggenheim Museum":https://www.ncptt.nps.gov/blog/restoration-and-replication-of-steel-elements-at-frank-lloyd-wrights-fallingwater-and-solomon-r-guggenheim-museum/ together with a transcript. What an honor, to have worked on both masterpieces.
Clickbait undoubtedly, and for a tiny niche, but Jason Bloomberg suggests in "The End of Business Process in the Digital Era":https://intellyx.com/2017/09/25/the-end-of-business-process-in-the-digital-era/ that business processes will be replaced by digital journeys. Seems to me though that this is merely a name change to handle some increased complexity, since a process remains a process?

A photo essay by Dan Frommer on attending Apple’s iPhone X event — its "first at the Steve Jobs Theater":https://www.recode.net/2017/9/13/16299086/apple-park-steve-jobs-theater-iphone-event-photos.
There's some "powerful new stuff in iOS 11, as summarized at The Verge":https://www.theverge.com/2017/6/26/15870508/apple-ios-11-public-beta-preview-ipad-iphone. Document scanning in Notes (though no OCR, need an app for that). Markup on screenshots. Screen recording. A file system. Configurable Control Panel. I do so love Apple.
Since such overhauls are relatively infrequent and set the stage for a web site for years to come, they are rare and vital opportunities to step back to basics. What should the site be? What should it express? Who is it for and what should it do for them?
If there be classics of web design then Subtraction.com is surely among them. The personal site of Khoi Vinh, now Design Director of nytimes.com, its design is so obvious and authoritative that it almost should be ubiquitous, and yet of course it’s unique. It has few rivals in the art of employing spacing to augment reading.
In January 2008 Khoi announced that he was switching the site’s publishing system from MovableType to ExpressionEngine. I offered to help out and he took me up on it. So I’ve written up a detailed explanation of the ExpressionEngine templates that now serve up Subtraction.com as of v7.1. See “How Subtraction.com was converted to EE”.
