It's April ... What Do You Expect?

The forecast: It’s April. Which means it’s time for the next Zaleski Minute. And remember: If it takes you longer than 60 seconds to get through this, complain to management.

What I Was Writing:

  1. For ElementalButter in your coffee? All-meat diet? How about fasting for 60 hours straight? A peek into the wild dietary world of eating for mental clarity and battling that 2:30 feeling.

  2. For Curbed: According to some in the self-driving industry, the future of autonomous transportation in America’s cities will arrive in the form of pint-size buses traveling at 11 miles an hour. Giddy up.

  3. For Washingtonian: You might know Paul Reed Smith as one of the most prolific luthiers in the U.S. today. But when he’s not making guitars for the likes of Carlos Santana, he’s developing technology now in use by America’s intelligence agencies.

Can You Spare A Dime?

I have a big feature out in print next month in a brand new magazine: Postindustrial. It’s a publication that reports exclusively on Appalachia and the Rust Belt, and it’s already putting out a weekly newsletter and articles online. On Kickstarter it has raised more than $23,000 on its way to its $30,000 fundraising goal. If you care about journalism in between the coasts and have a few bucks to spare, I’d appreciate it if you tossed a few Postindustrial’s way.
