It’s early April and still feels like it’s sometime in February in NYC. I can’t wait until I can put away my puffy jackets and enjoy the spring. Interesting reads this week as I long for spring.
1.Interesting to know that “Couples who do share dishwashing responsibilities seem to have better relationships” and happy to report that we’ve been happier ever since we started using our dishwasher.
2. Funny way of responding to the toilet seat battle.
3. Interesting look behind the scenes at Conde Nast as they “pivot to video” and at Meredith as they make their content more shoppable.
4. Love the backstory of turning “unstructured, sui generis nature of restaurant menus” into meaningful data at Grubhub.
5. Surprised and disturbed to read that “con men thrive in times of upheaval,” and that “In 2016, relationship scams were the second-most-costly form of internet fraud (after wire fraud)” after reading the story of The Perfect Man Who Wasn’t.
6. I’m not sure how I feel about this research “… acquaintanceship flips over to friendship somewhere between three and nine weeks after people first meet each other, and that generally, if you haven’t hit friendship status within three or four months after meeting, the odds are that you never will,” for it really all depends on the situation.
7. A sensible list of things that we collectively should give less fucks about from one of my favorite authors, Mark Manson.
