David Rakoff in “This American Life: The Invisible Made Visible” – YouTube

One of my favorite writers, David Rakoff, has died. I don’t know of another writer whose essays are so wonderfully read by his own tongue. Here is his performance from the most recent “This American Life” live show, which Kathleen and I were able to see, live-streamed to Jackson.

I am very sad. I selfishly wanted him to live longer, to write more books, to please my ear and mind and heart. Dear David, I love your words and stories, and I thank you.

Humorously awkward Google commercial about an irrelevant product

As Fastcodesign.com points out, this video looks like it was made by The Onion. I am so excited that we are about to blast through the zettabyte barrier! It was Captain Kirk’s dream.
