Starting before 8am with an international conference call usually means I'll have a full day. Fortunately there's Instapaper, which lets me shove all the interesting things I find during the day onto my Android pad for tomorrow's bus ride to work.
So far today:
- The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald worries more about surveillance than any other part of the Petreaus scandal.
- Wunderground's Jeff Masters explains all the superlatives around Hurricane Sandy.
- Philip Bump, writing at Gristmill, thinks politicians should pay more attention to climate change.
- Nate Silver, having put the election behind him, turns his attention to the American League MVP race.
- The Chicago Board of Elections apparently exposed my personal information along with that of the other 1.7 million voters in the city. (Since voter registration information is public in Illinois, this is actually not a real story. But oooooh! Information breach! Scary hackers!)
- Chicago restaurant L20, which shares an alley with my apartment building, got its second Michelin star back. I ate there once, last May, and was very impressed. Not as impressed as the check would have suggested, but impressed nonetheless.
And...now back to work.
