There was a lot of content relating to coffee today in my news feed. I’m not exactly sure why. Probably coincidence. I found it all relatively interesting for various reasons. This photo/audio essay explores the idea that the ubiquity of Starbucks is somehow diminishing people’s experience when traveling the globe.

This article relays the findings of several studies about how caffeine affects people depending on their genetic make up, and other factors.

…and finally, Nowness ran the video below. Not only is it quirky and interesting, it also has a really nice visual aesthetic.

Came across this video today. It was posted on a blog that I like less and less, so I’m not even going to link back to it. But This vid was a nice reminder of what summer felt like growing up in Utah. There is also some decent skateboarding.
