Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

This Friday I point you to some worthwhile reading around the blogosphere:

1. Fascinating profile in June Issue of Vanity Fair of Alfred Ochs Sulzberger Jr. , publisher of that most grown-up of newspapers, The New York Times – as he struggles to keep the Gray Lady afloat. While you’re at it, hop over to the New Yorker to read the profile of Mexican Businessman Carlos Slim who is now the leading shareholder (outside the Sulzberger family) of the New York Times.

2. Feel like facebook is aging? Have a look at this generational take on social media over at Macworld.com.

3. And speaking of generation gaps (and the Gray Lady herself), this New York Times article explains why youth may be an asset to venture capital firms.

4. I’ve owned up before to being a regular over at Salon.com’s Life section. These two articles – one on our collective obsession with the First Family and the other about women writers – explain why. Great writing and analysis…often by women!

5. Finally, I always love discovering thoughtful blogs about the writing process. In A Writing Year, novelist Christina Baker Kline talks about the day to day struggles of an (already published!) author. Some really nice stuff in there.
