What’s worth reading while I’m recovering?

I won’t be using computers for a week or two after tomorrow’s hand surgery, but I will have my trusty iPad/Instapaper combination to keep me occupied and amused. Anything you’ve seen that I – or anyone else who hangs around here – should seek out (I’ve already cherry-picked my way through Kevin Kelly’s 100 Best Magazine Articles post and obvious stuff such as Wired’s look at the Apple/AT&T power struggles)?

I’d appreciate any suggestions for longish, interesting articles on pretty much any subject other than sport.
