  1. Do you have experience with any cloud-based, data room software that you recommend for upcoming due diligence at my small company? We are looking for something flexible (easy to reorganize folders, add documents, etc.), user friendly, and available to multiple potential investors at once with time-stamped records of who has viewed what.

  2. Oof, that Medium article was a hard read, but worthwhile. My husband is awesome, but still, STILL, he doesn’t really, truly get how much s h i t women put up with.

  3. Anonymous :

    The Joyce Maynard story was new to me; thanks for sharing it. The comments (including the featured ones) are mostly a mess, but for me the article resonated with the Avital Ronell story that I’ve been following (and, well, with all the “literary” novels I’ve been throwing against the wall lately).

  4. Buy the Japanese Biore sunscreen linked in the Inventory article. Seriously, it is the best sunscreen ever. I’ll never go back to American sunscreens.
