Where to eat at London Heathrow

London’s Heathrow International Airport is built for the hungry. Heathrow’s restaurants range from classy to quick to pub. Heavy emphasis on “pub.” Like London itself, you can find pubs with traditional English bar food and beer everywhere you look in Heathrow. Which is fine and dandy, but there are also a number of high-end restaurants with fast or slow service if you’re looking for something a little different. These are the best restaurants and bars in every terminal of Heathrow Internatio...

Digital Minimalism and Ancestral Health (Or, Would Grok Tweet?)

The ancestral health movement argues that over long periods of time, evolution adapts species to their environments. It follows that when it comes to human well-being, we should pay attention to how we ate and behaved throughout the vast majority of our evolutionary history. Like most lifestyle movements, ancestral health has spawned its share of hucksters and extremists, but the underlying logic seems self-evident, and the success stories can be compelling. After recent appearances o...

Write On (Blog Notes)

I finally broke down, bit the bullet, unclenched the fist clinging to the wallet like grim death, and bought a new computer. I had the kind help of Ben Rosengart and Steve Rosenblum. I bought an Apple 3.0GHz i7 six-core Mac Mini with 16 GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. It's not here yet. I have a stack of envelopes sitting on my desk from readers who mailed donations recently, which is what paid for most of the new computer. The return addresses include J. Reid, Nicholas Hartmann, Robert J. Sliclen, R...

Sweet new book pages

Phew, spent a good few hours today micro-managing the Soul Jacker trilogy book pages into existence. They look about 10x cooler than previous book pages I’ve made. At some point I’ll get around to doing this for all my books. New style: It looks cool and it works really nicely on mobile as well – which is how most people will see it, if they click through from their ereader. Old style: There’s not really any ‘style’ here, it’s just straightforward. Not cool in the slightest, and not intuitive on...

What Businesses Need to Learn From the Facebook Crash

I thought it was just my internet. Or maybe Facebook was just mad I’d deleted their app and bragged about it. But as it turned out, Facebook’s uptime took a massive hit….all around the globe. This included Instagram and Whatsapp. Ironically, everyone went to Twitter to complain about it. Until then, I hadn’t realized how many businesses rely on Facebook. Not only for advertising, but for communication and different forms of team-building. From what I read, it seems like this is akin to all copie...

Charlie Pratt's Prints

I've told this story before I'm sure, but Lord knows where. Many years ago, the photographer John Gossage helped organize a show of photographs by Charles Pratt at the Corcoran Gallery. Charlie, who had died of a heart attack at his gym four years earlier at the age of 50, had been the scion of a wealthy industrialist family. It turned out that John had other connections with the Pratt family, which included helping Charlie's widow Julie publish several books of Charlie's photography. Julie was ...

Spring, Sunshine and a Good Book *bliss*

The sun is shining, birds chirping (I almost forgot what that sounded like) and I’m impatiently watching the snow melt off my deck and wondering how long it will be until I actually see grass in my backyard.

The perfect morning for me consists of a spot in the sun on my deck, a warm cup of coffee beside me, and a good book in my hands. I. CAN’T. WAIT. It’s like my friends at S...

This Week in Photography Books: Peggy Levison Nolan

  Parenting isn’t glamourous. That’s for sure. I always knew I’d have kids, and given how much I relish being a Dad, I guess I had it right. (I used the word “relish” here, because I don’t know if “enjoy” is quite right.) I love my children more than anything, and would take a bullet for either of them, as I would for my wife. No question. And each of the kids, both 21st creatures through and through, are funny, thoughtful, sweet and smart. I enjoy them as people, no question. They’re awesome. J...
