Cal Newport has published an interesting post titled "The Disturbing High Modernism of Silicon Valley". It focuses on the recently leaked Facebook memo authored by Andrew “Boz” Bosworth (on a side-note, if you want a deeper look at this “Boz” character, I recommend Antonio Garcia Martinez’s Chaos Monkeys).

As a kid, I used to love going to Foyle’s in Charing Cross Road with my dad. We would head for a floor full of repair and maintenance manuals and, while he searched for help on whatever project was currently occupying him, I would browse books containing fascinating and, incomprehensible to young me, diagrams of the inner workings of automobiles, planes, radios and other technological wonders.
