tl;dr: Early Summer edition

The days are longer and while you lounge in the park here are my recommendations on what you may have missed on the internet.

1. How do you define the new ‘cool’? A stab at answering what might be an unanswerable question by studying how brands and companies become cool in the eyes of consumers- http://qz.com/213643/how-do-you-define-cool-a-new-paper-tries-and-succeeds/

2. Neil Gaiman talks to Art Spiegelman. Yes, did you ever imagine! https://vimeo.com/93195839

3. Theory of Everything is among my favourite podcasts and I strongly recommend a hear. This episode http://toe.prx.org/2014/04/1984-the-year-not-the-book/  reminiscences 1984 and brings to you TV commercials, radio spots, movie clips from 1984 (the year, not the book). Find out what totalitarianism really sounds like.

4. Understand different schools of philosophy in the form of colourful geometric graphics – http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2014/04/14/philographics-book-genis-carreras/

Self-indulgent tip: While you enjoy the links, find time to read some of my digressions on Medium – https://medium.com/@akshatk/
