What I read this week:

A German publishing company hopes to publish a print edition of the English-language Wikipedia — all 1,000 hardcover volumes of it. Given fears about the impermanence of information hosted on the internet and electronic data storage in general, I think this is a great idea.

After the prospect of Venice’s secession from Italy was recently in the news, Italian police arrest two dozen alleged violent separatists.

What did third century China think of the distant Roman Empire?

Ten potential long-term effects of Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

Ta-Nehisi Coates’ posts from the past two weeks are enormously important.

The completely bonkers idea of converting the Soviet Mach 3 MiG-25 interceptor into a VIP transport: alas, it was not meant to be.

From Thursday, more linkage at Political Violence at a Glance.
