If you're the type who likes serious journal reading, the New Atlantis is the best quarterly to come down the pike in a great while. Check out Christine Rosen's fantastic essay in the current issue, Our Cell Phones, Ourselves. It's funny, thoughtful, and well reported--everything I've come to expect from her writing. Plus, it's got this gem:
"In France, cell phone companies were pressured by the public to censor the last four digits of phone numbers appearing on monthly statements, because so many French men and women were using them to confirm that their significant other was having an affair."
Print it out and enjoy.
