I really love the rare times when my approach into LaGuardia goes down the Hudson.

“When I was limping up to my press conference and trying to make it up the stairs, somebody taps me on the shoulder and extends their hand and asks if I’m all right," Sherman said during the interview. "My eyes try to make it up to see who it is, and it’s Peyton … fully dressed in a suit and obviously very concerned about my well-being.”

“The NFL has announced that live streaming of the game “will be blocked on the Wi-Fi and cellular networks at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.” Why? Because streaming clogs up the networks and can prevent other fans in the stadium from feverishly sharing every moment of their experience via social media. This is what has become of large gatherings of humans. In order to enable all participants to stare at their phones and overshare throughout the event, they will be prohibited from watching a video stream of the game they are watching in person. If they really want to catch the action on the field, the folks at the stadium may actually have to look up.”

“You know we’re constantly taking. We don’t make most of the food we eat, we don’t grow it, anyway. We wear clothes other people make, we speak a language other people developed, we use a mathematics other people evolved and spent their lives building. I mean we’re constantly taking things. It’s a wonderful ecstatic feeling to create something and put it into the pool of human experience and knowledge.”

“Technology is rapidly reaching out into the spaces of life — transportation, health care, energy — that are both hugely consequential and heavily regulated. Add to the mix the growing, recession-fueled interest in the so-called “sharing economy,” with people exploring how to share expensive resources like cars and spare bedrooms.
For these “sharing” systems to work, you often need people living close together. This puts cities on the front lines of figuring out the right laws for the 21st century. And it’s not a question they’ll have years to ponder. Uber and others are moving now.”
