  1. Hi Tina, great links again this week.

    I have been searching on your site for a link which you shared a few weeks (months?) ago to a giant MOOC library – I think as part of your Friday link pack. I stupidly forgot to save it and now can’t find it anymore. Can you share again please?

    Many thanks!

  2. Sophie, You are most likely going to find it here:

  6. Hello Tina,

    I’m reposting an article that a friend of mine shared. I think it makes an excellent point on what is wrong with the Worlds 50 Best Restaurants list. Mainly that “Dominique Crenn, who was separately awarded the “World’s Best Female Chef” title, didn’t even make the longer top 100 list. The omission creates the impression that the 50 Best organization doesn’t consider what it believes to be the finest woman chef in the world to be as noteworthy as the 100th best male chef.”

    Interesting read.

  7. Thank you so much for mentioning me in the always great Friday links!
    It’s just so very generous of you! I think this may be a career high for me! <3 <3

  8. I decided about a month ago that James Corden is now the only person on My List. Goodbye, Ed Norton and Dave Grohl. James is the man.

  9. Such a great list as always! CIA wisdom is spot on. Also, the James Corden obsession continues! I hope you also saw his latest carpool karaoke for the Tonys?! Gold <3
