After taking a few weeks [mostly] off of email and social media to start learning how to be a dad, I have found myself thinking a lot about this Anthony Doerr essay from 2008, about his relationship to email.

You want to know where the everything bagel came from? So did Doug Mack, and he wrote this great piece about it for you. 

If you have a minute and 38 seconds for this video, great, but I think you’ll be laughing by about the 40-second mark
