Actually, I've been back for a couple of weeks. But Typepad, which hosts this blog and thousands of others, was down for more than a week because of a server-migration snafu. While I waited for service to be restored I posted three stories about my October travels over on Medium.
Check them out! I’m embedding “friend links” so you can bypass the Medium paywall; if you choose to become a Medium member you can have access to hundreds of other authors (including two of my favorites, Susan Orlean and Clive Thompson), and you can help support our writing with your modest annual subscription.
Part 1: SFO to NYC
Part 2: Aboard the Queen Mary 2 (yes, I did that)
Part 3: A weekend in London
Coming soon: Bristol, England, and Cardiff, Wales.
At San Francisco International Airport: “You are your ID”
Lots of photos! Lots of stories! And, as you might expect, a focus (but not an exclusive one) on names, brands, and the language of commerce.
