Happy first A4J post AFTER your birthday!! It should also be noted that after the last A4J post, wordpress said that 25 posts is “glorious,” which I could hear you saying out loud, haha. Anyways, here’s this week’s A4J. Enjoy.

I purposefully made the first post for this week an interview with Maurice Sendak. It feels fitting, after having watched a LukMonster and a Cookie Monster duke it out this week: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2011/oct/02/maurice-sendak-interview

And of course, it’s fitting that one of the first posts in this 26-year old world is the new Michael Lewis piece on California. Finally! http://www.vanityfair.com/business/features/2011/11/michael-lewis-201111.print

As a retrospective on Steve Jobs, I’ll send you this article: his longform Wired eulogy (http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/10/jobs/all/1), this WSJ retrospective (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304447804576410753210811910.html?mod=e2tw) and this interview from 1996 on Charlie Rose that features Jobs and John Lassetter about Pixar (just seemed like something you’d love): http://www.charlierose.com/view/clip/11930
