It’s been a while. Have some links. The DiCaprio interview reminded me why he used to be my favorite actor. Also, I do want to see his new movie, The Revenant, though I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’ll be seeing it alone.

I hope everyone had a nice, long Labor Day weekend, if you celebrate it, that is (or, you know, live in the US). We have new New York Times links today. And yes, before you ask, I am a Serena Williams fan.

The first article in this week’s post is very relevant, considering how much news we get from Facebook. As an aside, I get most of my news in my inbox (newsletters) and via twitter, less so from Facebook, but still some.
