Links for 5.25.09: Beards, Twitter, Wilco, the New Yorker, the Marshmallow Test
by Josh Kimball
*Obits: Jay Bennett, formerly of Wilco, died in his sleep at 45.
*The Marshmallow Test: “Don’t” is a great read from the New Yorker about how self-control among kids is a key indicator of future success and a current area of study.
*Art: The newest New Yorker cover was drawn on an iPhone.
*Twitter: Billboard takes a look at Twitter and the music business. After using Twitter for three years (on maybe half a dozen accounts) and writing about it (often in conjunction with music) innumerable times, I think I’m hitting a wall.
*Grade for today’s links: Don’t ever give up.
