Welcome to Red Sauce America - Bon Appétit
"From chicken parm to clams casino, this is our celebration of the Italian-American restaurants we love.

The oversize portions. The red-and-white-checked tablecloths. A carafe of the house red. Old-school Italian-American restaurants, a.k.a. red sauce joints, are the kind of institutions you’ll find, with very few deviations, in just about any city in America. But as we discovered upon reaching out to dozens of writers, chefs, and celebrities, these restaurants are about a lot more than a plate of penne alla vodka. Whether or not you’re Italian, red sauce likely means something to you—about family, or home, or history, or politics, or class, or citizenship, or selfhood, or otherness, or all the above, or a million other things. And that’s what this package is all about. Welcome to Red Sauce America."

The longer I live in Los Angeles, the more I try to find places where I feel like a thread in the fabric of something bigger than myself. Enter: Little Dom's." by Roxane Gay

Russell Quinn — The World's Most Wired Storyteller | Wired Design | Wired.com
"Now after a string of behind-the-scenes successes, Quinn may be about to transform the art of storytelling itself. This summer he will launch The Silent History, a sprawling electronic novel that plays with the mechanics of how stories are told, taking full advantage of the tablet’s GPS and touchscreen, along with platform features like in-app purchasing.

It will be the first release from Ying Horowitz & Quinn, the San Francisco publishing house Quinn co-founded in January. Judging by samples shared with Wired, The Silent History is part book, part multiplayer game, part Google map, and entirely revolutionary.

“I love the printed book,” Quinn says. “But I’m not romantic about the book, either.”

…One key difference in how this e-book works is that the narrative is serialized… The serial is broken into six parts, each one spanning several years in fictional time…

Then there are Field Reports."

Ying Horowitz & Quinn
"We develop projects that organically integrate storytelling, design, and technology. Our projects are a mix of self-initiated experimentation and progressive client-based proposals that bridge the gap between old and new media. We see new digital formats not as an end in themselves, but rather as an opportunity to explore new possibilities in narrative."
