Why the hottest restaurants make us wait in the cold. "If you are trying to provide a high level of service, you can do it two ways. One is to hire loads of staff and charge high prices. Or you charge much less but effectively force diners to come at a time they wouldn't normally choose." [Bloomberg]
How Laurene Powell Jobs is reimagining the future of education. "This is such a deeply difficult issue. It requires nuance and perseverance and problem solving at a very complex level." [Vogue]
How 'Queen of Sappy Love Songs' Delilah conquered radio. "Her approach has won her legions of fans, helping her become the most-listened-to woman in radio . . . Ryan Seacrest's American Top 40 is heard by an audience about half the size of Delilah’s." [Buzzfeed]
Marshawn Lynch hasn't spent any of the $50 million he's made in his NFL career. "He hasn't spent a dime of his actual playing money ... ever." [Inc]
Noteworthy from The Splendid Collective:
