Garry Trudeau | Atlantic | 26 October 2010

Cartoonist charts evolution of Doonesbury from its beginnings at Yale, 40

Graeme Wood | Barnes & Noble Review | 26 October 2010

Marvellously warm and wise review of Naipaul's book on Africa—in which

  authors, as well as economics of publishing and writing. Creative rhythm,
  relations with readers will change. So may literary style

Emily Singer | Technology Review | 25 October 2010

DNA analysis says veteran musician and "medical miracle" is distantly
  related to Stephen Colbert; has strong disposition towards alcoholism and
  hallucinations; and has some Neanderthal in him, but not much

Ray Ozzie | Ray Ozzie's Blog | 25 October 2010

In effect, Ray Ozzie's resignation letter as Microsoft chief software
  architect—though it leaves the reason for his exit a mystery. Full of wisdom
  about computing industry. And Windows boosterism
