  1. CodeNewbie Ep. 82 What Is Code?

    Paul Ford didn’t expect his article on coding to go big. But almost a year later, the Bloomberg issue dedicated to “What is code?” is still completely sold out. We dig into the major topics covered in that long and highly entertaining piece, like conferences, open source, and languages, and how Paul and the editors created a technical article that still managed to be accessible to coder and non-coders alike.

  4. Selected Shorts - The Sun and the Moon

    Fantasy writer Italo Calvino offers a fable about love on and off the moon. “The Distance of the Moon” is read by Broadway star Liev Schreiber. And sci-fi master Ray Bradbury imagines life on a sunless Venus, where it has rained for seven years. Michael Cerveris reads “All Summer in a Day.”

  5. Episode 10: Paul Ford and Josh Whip the Dip by Tomorrow

    The enigmatic and hilarious Paul Ford returns to Tomorrow to discuss his recent, critically acclaimed Businessweek story "What Is Code?" The two men actually manage to stay on topic for a little while, but the conversation soon devolves (evolves?) into a whirlwind discussion about commenters, Batman, and Nokia. In addition, listeners will have a front row seat to the birth of a unique, high-concept restaurant.

  7. ‘That pig was a good influence’ with Jeremy Keith and Jeffrey Zeldman on Unfinished Business

    Last week was Jeffrey Zeldman’s website’s 20th birthday, so this week he joins me and Jeremy Keith on Unfinished Business 110 to talk about the anniversary. We start by discussing Jeremy’s 100 words for 100 days writing project and how it’s inspired me to change the way that I think about writing on our blog and posting to our portfolio. We talk about the importance of writing for yourself as well as for others and why writing on your own website is important. With it being the twentieth anniversary of Jeffrey’s own site, we also talk about whether it’s important to archive older designs for posterity.

  9. Steven Pinker | A Sense of Style: A Writing Guide for the 21st Century

    “Sweeping, erudite, sharply argued, and fun to read” (Time), cognitive scientist and linguist Steven Pinker has charted the way humans form thoughts and engage the world through a wide array of scientific research, scholarly writing, popular books, and magazine articles. These bestsellers include The Better Angels of our Nature, The Language Instinct, and Pulitzer Prize finalists The Blank Slate and How the Mind Works. In 2010 and 2011 he was named to Foreign Policy magazine’s list of top global thinkers. Pinker’s new book explores the ways in which the English language is being corrupted by texting and social media in order to propose practical guidelines for crafting useful, elegant prose.
