A new weekend, a new batch of stories. Here are my favorites from this week.
This week, Facebook announced an initiative to increase internet access to those that need it. On The Atlantic, Phil Nichols takes a look at the parallels between Zuckerberg's new mission and that of spreading literacy in the early 20th century.
A year after its launch, Medium — the startup launched by Twitter's cofounders — is still a mystery. Anil Dash wants to shed some light.
The news is a swarming mess of cold, hard facts. In short, it's mean. According to TIME, however, social media is making it less so.
By now, you've probably heard that Steve Ballmer, Microsoft's CEO, is going to retire. The Wall Street Journal sums up what that means for Microsoft, and takes a look back at Ballmer's rather unimpressive tenure.
Speaking of Ballmer's retirement, ReadWrite takes a look at a possible option for Microsoft going forward: splitting the tech behemoth into smaller entities.
If I say the internet changes things, would you be surprised? Probably not, but what if I told you it's even changing hard work?
That's all for this week- happy reading! As always, you can view this as a Readlist to download it directly to your mobile device or Kindle.
