What Passes For A Soul (Or Conscience) In Silicon Valley

What happens after you admit you might have ruined the internet, or helped elect a lunatic, or undercut Western democracy? I suppose that, like with any confession, you feel relief. Nothing is worse than keeping a secret. Then, to borrow a cliché, you might take some time to work on yourself. Unburdened, perhaps, by their No Good Very Bad Election Year, the elite of Silicon Valley have discovered a new depth of self-reflection that they didn’t realized they possessed—and a new opportunit...

St.Arnaud: The Introvert

From Edmonton-based St.Arnaud’s debut album The Cost of Living, “The Introvert” colorfully (and accurately) describes the attributes of the title character. With sing-song pop flair and jangling folk inflection, the song chugs forward. Its music video, directed by Liam Prost, was shot entirely in a home bathroom and mirrors the joy that the band brings to their live performances.

How The Art World Morphed Into The Art Industry

Consider that, in 1988, the Artnet Price Database tracked only 18 auction houses and about 8,300 artists. Over the next 24 years, those figures skyrocketed: By 2012, there were 632 auction houses and 90,275 artists. But, like any mature industry, it is now entering a period of consolidation after decades of expansion. Last year, Artnet recorded only 534 houses (a drop of around 16 percent from the high-water mark) and 71,621 artists (down 25 percent from the peak). Still, the scale and co...

How Mike Nichols And Elaine May Met (An Oral History)

The Old-School Contraption Architects Once Used to Simulate the Sun Passing Over a House Model

Prior to modeling software, architects needed a way to determine how the passing of the sun would affect houses they were working on. Are some parts of the house getting too much sun or not enough sun? Are weird shadows being created? Does the design work as well in summer, when the sun is higher, as in winter, when the sun's arc is lower?To determine these answers, they needed two things:1) An intern, to build the model and get everyone coffee to drink during the evaluation phase, and2) A heli...
