    Seems like I've already read 3-4 longforms on silk road. Is the wired one different?

    I don't know what's in the 3-4 longforms you've read.

    The silk road story, guy who started it, arrest, etc. have been around for awhile. I saved those links and will probably read over the long weekend anyway, but just wondering if something new happened recently.

    Here's a Jan 2014 NY Times longform on it that I read: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/19/business/eagle-scout-idealist-drug-trafficker.html

    Probably nothing, the wired version seems to be to drum up interest for a book the author is writing. But I hadn't read much on it before so I enjoyed it immensely.

    i remember someone posting an article on the kid in nyc who got picked up on a bogus charge and spent 3 years in hellish conditions at rikkers before they dropped the charges

    well the guy killed himself this weekend after suffering with depression that is directly tied to his time there

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/08/kalief-browder-death_n_7535420.html

    here is the original article which is an amazing read but obviously pretty tough to stomach
