14 fantastic long reads that will make you smarter

As you may have noticed from previous posts, I’m a big fan of in-depth journalism. After reading several dozens over the last two weeks, these are the ones I recommend spending time with:

  1. How content management software will shape the future of media
  2. Remembering U.S. Soccer’s most improbable triumph
  3. Nothing can stop Google. DuckDuckGo is trying anyways.
  4. I cut Google out of my life and it screwed everything up
  5. The empty mason jar of the influencer economy
  6. A private court investigator and his controversial methods
  7. The quest to live to 180—is any of it legit?
  8. The enduring fight over the first Ironman triathlon
  9. The murky ethics of the “ugly produce” business
  10. The hard-to-believe conditions of air-traffic controllers
  11. Creating music while clean
  12. Can a bar feel like a bar without booze?
  13. How to suck at business without even trying
  14. Frank Sinatra has a cold (one of my all-time recently re-read favorites)
