LA Hump Day Links: Feb. 15, 2012

Congratulations–you made it through another Wednesday. It’s all downhill from here, folks.

And to celebrate, we’re providing you with our reliable hump day reading material. Cheers!

  • “Plug in Better: A Manifesto,” by Alexandra Samuel at The Atlantic: To face the FOMO, the fear of missing out, as Alexandra puts it, is a big reason you’re checking the Facebook status of someone you would no longer recognize in person. But Ms. Samuel artfully points out how to balance unplugging and, well, not missing out.
  • “Why Wall Street Should Stop Whining,” by Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone. And we quote: ”Yet these [Wall Street bankers] have failed so spectacularly at that [being trustworthy with other peoples' money] in the last fifteen years that they’re lucky that God himself didn’t come down to earth at bonus time this year, angrily boot their asses out of those new condos, and command those Zagat-reading girlfriends of theirs to start getting acquainted with the McDonald’s value meal lineup.” Yeah, you want to read it.
  • “Danny & Annie,” by Danny and Annie via StoryCorps.  The epitome of why StoryCorps is a great project.
