This is a real throwback week - I'm sending this out on a Friday! Mostly so I can get it off my plate and start working on the backlog of stuff I have on my plate right now.

By the way, I've been getting some pretty low open rates the past few weeks. Is that just summer?





Stuff that doesn't fit into my dumb/arbitrary categories.

  • A good overview of the different companies vying to purchase Nokia's Here mapping service.
  • Gemination is the phonological phenomena when a consonant is elongated. English doesn't treat consonant length as distinct in root words, but languages like Japanese and Italian do.

Love, Spencer.

ps - Thank you to everyone - especially my friends at Gin Lane, Undercurrent, Brilliant Bicycles and on twitter - who referred me to everything here.

We should be closer friends. Coffee's on me.
