Welcome to the first weekend reads of the new year — these are our favorite longer form reads from over the past week (or so). Pour a cup of coffee, settle into the comfy couch, and enjoy:

Kevin Drum: America’s Real Criminal Element: Lead (MoJo [1])
• How Great Companies Think Differently (Harvard Business Review [2]) see also Hartmut Esslinger’s early apple computer and tablet designs (designboom [3])
• WHAT IS ACTUALLY GOING ON IN ICELAND (Studio Tendra [4])
• Less, Please (Commonweal [5])
• Why Workers Are Losing the War Against Machines (The Atlantic [6])
• The Rise of the Third Coast (New Geography [7])
• A Pickpocket’s Tale: The spectacular thefts of Apollo Robbins (The New Yorker [8])
The Data Vigilante: Students aren’t the only ones cheating—some professors are, too. Uri Simonsohn is out to bust them (The Atlantic [9])
• The NRA’s hidden power (Los Angeles Times [10])
• The culture of the copy (The New Criterion [11]) see also Monopoly Is Theft (Harper’s [12])

What are you up to this weekend?
