A list of things I read while flying back and forth across the country

Last week we from from Boston to LA and then flew back on Wednesday. The long flights gave me a chance to clear a bit out of my Instapaper backlog. I was going to do some sorting, but I though it was also interesting to see what order I read everything. Expect to see some, but not most, of this blogged over the next couple weeks. Especially good articles are starred. Check out the list, you’ll find something to read this weekend.
