Notre Dame’s old stones will hold up, but I’m most worried about the rose windows. Here‘s the one at the southern end of the transept. It dates from the year 1260. It’s twin on the northern end is even older, from 1250.

I have such vivid memories of seeing the John Snow cholera map for the first time in one of its original printings in the archives when I was researching Ghost Map. Wonderful to be back after so many years.

This book by has changed how i look at technology applied to things like fashion, games, music, gourmet food, etc. ... If I'd had this book's insights twenty years ago, my career path might have been different. Strongly recommended.

I was going to say... :) It's a fun place to visit, BTW. Epidemiologists all make a pilgrimage there if they come to London. Glad you enjoyed the book!

Terrific piece. Here’s a different generational thought about Beto: reminds me of the would-be New Democratic presidents of the late 20th century, the cool Silent Generation guys who came at it all sideways—Jerry Brown, Gary Hart, Bob Kerrey.
