Weekend Intelligence: August 21, 2010

August 21, 2010

Summer is winding down, but there’s a long holiday weekend just ahead–still plenty of time to get out there and get at it. In the meantime…

  • Look, Ma–No bags! – Rolf Potts is embarking on a 6-week, round the world trip without so much as a man purse in sight. In this interview, he claims that he’ll be washing his clothes each evening and allowing them to dry overnight. Why does the idea of him sleeping naked in different hotel rooms every night kinda skeeve me out a bit?
  • Maybe they'll start charging extra for the view, too...

    In a move that will likely further frustrate many already fed-up frequent flyers, American Airlines will now charge you extra to sit in a front row coach seat. Here’s hoping this particular business model doesn’t take off, but I have a feeling that enough folks are willing to plunk down the extra $20 to $40 for the privilege of boarding and disembarking first.
