I saw this recommended on Twitter and found it quite, not very, interesting. It essentially discusses the ways viral stories work, and is pretty scathing about them. Concludes people should be more aware of the micro stories and try to see the macro a bit more. Totally agree.

Vichy Catalan water is only sold in about 4 outlets in London, one of which is Monmouth Coffee. It comes from the Catalan region of Spain and has unusually ‘hard’ bubbles and a salty taste.

Apparently, they are currently on quite short term leases and all sorts of other people [...]
