It’s been a busy day for Facebook exec op-eds. Earlier this morning, Sheryl Sandberg broke the site’s silence around the Christchurch massacre, and now Mark Zuckerberg is calling on governments and other bodies to increase regulation around the sorts of data Facebook traffics in. He’s hoping to get out in front of heavy-handed regulation and get a seat at the table shaping it.

  I look forward to checking in with u every day because life in France has the appearance of something more. I still can figure out if this is true.

5 ways to stay physically equipped for adventure

C onrad Anker’s accomplishments in high-altitude climbing are astonishing. For over three decades he’s been an elite climber and world-class mountaineer, often leading expeditions with climbers half his age in tow. His list of first ascents is both lengthy and impressive, the pinnacle probably being the 2011 summit of India’s Meru Peak via its Shark’s Fin route, accompanied by Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk. That ascent — and Conrad’s personal story — became the subject of Chin’s successful 2015 ...

Instagram Star Flies First Class While Her Husband Flies Coach. How Does It Work In Your Family?

Sometimes couples just don't like each other that much and being in separate cabins is a great way to stay together. Over the holidays last fall two American Airlines flights had to divert when couples got into fights on board. It does seem most of the stories are about men flying up front while wives or girlfriends are in back, so I was intrigued by a role reversal. She says her husband just appreciates how lucky he is to be with her. Continue reading Instagram Star Flies First Class While Her...

Remote workers and nomads represent the next tech hub

Amid calls for a dozen different global cities to replace Silicon Valley — Austin, Beijing, London, New York — nobody has yet nominated “nowhere.” But it’s now a possibility. There are two trends to unpack here. The first is startups that are fully, or almost fully, remote, with employees distributed around the world. There’s a growing list of significant companies in this category: Automattic, Buffer, GitLab, Invision, Toptal and Zapier all have from 100 to nearly 1,000 remote employees. The...

I could hear the roar of the water smashing down onto the smooth and large rocks below long before I saw what is known as Öxarárfoss as I was strolling in Þingvellir National Park that morning of my visit, where I was greeted with spectacular — and relatively warm — weather. Visitors are treated to a breathtaking view during the walk to Öxarárfoss. Much of the walk to Öxarárfoss is via a curving boardwalk, with the remainder of it as a path of asphalt.
