Wil's Newsletter: October 11, 2015

I'm trying something new.

Instead of auto-sending every post from my website, I''ll curate a bunch of stuff I'm reading, sharing and doing and send it by email.

Once a week.

(I'm posting it here, too for a few weeks to get the kinks worked out.)


Reading

  • How Ads Will Work in Google's Accelerated Mobile Pages (The Wall Street Journal): Speed, speed, speed. And ads. And mobile. Lots of conversation about the intersection of speed and ads and mobile - just the latest in a bunch I'm wading through.
  • Mossberg: The real trouble with web ads (The Verge): Hey! More ads! It's a big deal but I don't know how big of a deal it is outside of the technology and media circuits.
  • Why I can't convince your execs to invest in UX (Medium): Business v. creative. If you're not in the creative business, it's a tough sell.
  • The Rivalry (The Players' Tribune): Heard about this article before the Mexico game. They looked awful. What was Dempsey doing all night? And weren't we supposed to have wingers? Embarrassing. Reading very soon.
  • Werner: Liverpool wanted Klopp for a long time (Liverpool Echo): Got our man! Now let's see what he can do with a lazy side.

Sharing

  • A dog in the Apple store (Instagram): Repairing an iPhone, a dog.
  • Twitter's Moment (Stratechery): Twitter as the new newspaper!
  • How Might Apple Manufacture a Car? (MIT Technology Review): They can't do it! Yes they can!
  • Elon Musk's sleight of hand (Medium): An incredible article. Really, terrific.
