Link 120: The Bezos Divorce

I have been following news of the Bezos divorce with great interest–the life of a woman involved with a start-up guy has a certain relevance to my current dating life–and think that this take by Louise Matsakis is a good one.

What MacKenzie Bezos needs to do now is take her half of the money, and start doing all the philanthropic work the Bezos’ should have been doing all along. Wouldn’t the greatest revenge on her cheating ex be to just… give it all away?

Link 71: on Tinder and Anne of Cleves

Okay, so. I don’t quite agree with Ritter’s take on Tinder: “A swipe-right, double-tap world turns men into Henrys: ruthless, relentless connoisseurs of female beauty. It threatens to turn women like me into Anne of Cleveses: helpless, hopeless deception artists.”

However, her piece analyzing Tinder dating through the perspective of Henry VIII and his wives is actually kind of genius. The sort of thing you can appreciate reading even if it doesn’t match up with your lived experience/ opinions.
