Links, week 7: Milestones

I'm writing this at 12 a.m. on August 8, 2011, otherwise known as the luckiest day of the year.

I hit 7,777 page views and 2,500 unique visitors. (Well, maybe 2,500 unique IP addresses.) That's a big deal! I think.

My stats for the week aren't bad either:

Blogging: 16 hours, 53 minutes
Guitar: 1 hour, 26 minutes (I had to return my rented guitar to the shop....)
Email: 1 hour, 23 minutes
Literary (New Yorker, Grantland): 2 hours, 33 minutes
Distracted: 8 hours, 18 minutes

Distracted consists of Facebook, Quora, Google search, Yahoo Sports, Tech Crunch, NYT, Google Analytics, WSJ. Cut it down, Peter.

Some great links, though.

Best of the internet. I want you to click on every link in the following paragraph. Do it. You won’t be disappointed. How Apple came up with the “i” in its name; how Apple uses its $76.2B in free cash; what it's like to be a drug dealer; the benefits of boredom; the life of an escort girl.

Best of the rest:
