Link Party: 2/6-2/10

Adventures in keeping plants alive.
Adventures in keeping plants alive.

I had a good week, and I hope you did too.

Here’s what I read:

1.  This article about how the media treats leaks is good on its own, but I want to point out a sentence that contextualized John Podesta’s emails in an eye-opening way, at least for me: “the conversation around the emails became a battle over what they really were and the significance of how they came to be.”

2. Meet the editor-in-chief of the new Vogue ArabiaPrincess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz.

3. A young Wikipedia editor decides to fight back against the Internet trolls that harass her.

4. Lady Gaga‘s political messaging at the Super Bowl.

5. When things go missing — a reflection on loss.

And a bonus: The Dry Down, a newsletter about perfume.

Have a great week.

Link Party: 4/11-4/15

I missed this. I missed this a lot.
I missed this. I missed this a lot.

I had a great week, and I hope you did too. Here’s what I read:

1. This is a fascinating read on Minecraft and the kids that play it.

2. Instagram is ruining vacation.

3. What working at Sephora is like.

4. The miniskirt‘s unabashedly feminist history.

5. A conversation with Elena Ferrante.

And a bonus: An awesome newsletter named “A Woman to Know.”

Have a great weekend.
