How JetBlue Putting Someone on a Flight 90 Minutes Later Cost the Airline $2500

I was approached by someone recently about a fascinating interaction with JetBlue, and I thought this was worth sharing here. I suppose the moral of the story is that if you think you’ve been wronged and the airline isn’t owning up to their side of things, you could consider small claims court. It’s their fault if they can’t bother to show up. But be warned: this doesn’t sound like a typical outcome. Our story begins last October when a man who we’ll call Rigoberto (no reason, I just like ...

Guys and Dolls

I am always happy as a clam when American musicals come to Paris, as it’s one of the things I truly miss about living in New York. In past years I’ve enjoyed productions of Sunday in the Park with George, My Fair Lady, Sweeney Todd, The King and I, West Side Story, and An American in Paris.   This season Guys and Dolls, the quintessential American musical is making its premiere in Paris.   I went to see it last Friday night and was overjoyed. The production from beginning to end left ...

American Travel Experiences Everyone Should Try

"if you don't act like adults, we will": thank you climate strikers. thank you, thank you, thank you.

Friday's global student protest brought me so much joy. And also sadness, because I often feel so cynical about our ability to stop climate change. And also hope, because I won't succumb to that cynicism. I will fight it, and fight it, and fight it. Because our cynicism is the perfect weapon to be used against us. No evil genius could invent something more powerful than our own inaction.This photo gallery from the New York Daily News is wonderful. Very New York-centric, but with a global flavou...

Google's Bad Data Wiped Another Neighborhood Off the Map

Medium's technology publication ran a 3,600-word investigation into a mystery that began when a 66-year-old New York woman Googled directions to her neighborhood, "and found that the app had changed the name of her community..." It's just as well no one contacted Google, because Google wasn't the company that renamed the Fruit Belt to Medical Park.

Flight Review: El Al Business Class (787-9) From New York to Tel Aviv

I have long been fascinated by El Al. Since they became a Qantas codeshare partner in 2017, I have wanted to experience the Israeli national airline. Long had I heard that El Al’s long-haul staples – the trusty Boeing 777-200ER – were not as fresh and comfortable as rivals flying on similar routes. But when El Al took delivery of their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in 2017, I was set determined to experience their long-haul product. It only took me two-years!

Best CBD products for travelers

Cannabidiol, or CBD , is said to relax your body, ease stress, and reduce inflammation and aches. All of which are problems that come up while traveling.

Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp Go Down

Facebook was down for 22 hours yesterday, and its sister apps Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger also saw extensive outages. It was unusual in the sense that the four applications are each distinct codebases, but perhaps not suprising as all four share the same massive infrastructure. The joke is that global worker productivity shoots up whenever Facebook goes down, and you would think that Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and Messenger are nothing more than distractions in our increasingly digi...

Can there be too much competition between startups?

Competition is the core of capitalism. Competition between companies lowers prices — on average — and ensures that they are forced to innovate lest they lose their markets to others. Competition between workers ensures that people strive to do their best work lest their jobs go to more qualified or faster or cheaper replacements. Obviously, there is a spectrum here from lethargic monopoly to cutthroat competition that causes more problems than it’s worth (environmental damage in the hopes of cut...

Best pie shops in the United States

March 14 is Pi Day . In the numerical format that Americans list dates where the month is first followed by the day, it’s 3/14, or 3.14, which are the first three numbers in pi. For people not currently taking a high school math class or in a math-oriented career, that’s about the extent of common knowledge about pi. Pie, on the other hand, is something we can celebrate on Pi Day as well as every other day. That extra “e” turns a conversation about a math equation into a conversation about a d...
