Links is back from holiday break, so let's get down to it.
2013 was the year that, without question, Upworthy, Buzzfeed and their ilk dominated online news. Surely, we can do better- some might even say we broke the internet.
Chromebooks have quickly gone mainstream; in fact, they were the only PC segment whose market share rose last year. Can someone finally explain what all the fuss is about?
When Facebook came onto the scene, it offered the first platform for a cohesive digital identity. Now, our phones do that.
Another Links, another Alexis Madrigal piece (seriously, the guy's killing it). This time, he's looking at the state of digital media. (Tip: brush up on your college football lingo before reading).
It's become a cliché to criticize Facebook; everyone's doing it. That makes it all the more refreshing when Nishant Kothary comes along and gets straight to the heart of the matter.
Speaking of social media problems (see? I can do segues!), I wrote earlier today that the "stream" feels more like a rushing rapids. Perhaps Mathew Ingram's firehose analogy is a bit more appropriate.
As always, you can download Links as a Readlist to your Kindle, iOS, or Android device for a better reading experience.
