WeWork isn’t a tech company; it’s a soap opera
WeWork — excuse me, The We Company — has been successfully posing as a tech company for years. Its IPO filing shows it’s a real estate company while also revealing some absolutely wild self-dealing. I cannot wait to see what the Securities and Exchange Commis…

Nearly 100, the Salzburg Festival Doesn’t Wait to Celebrate
Six excellent new opera productions this year will be hard to top in next summer’s centennial festival.
