Meet The Man Whose Site Mark Zuckerberg Reads Every Day - BuzzFeed News
Charlie Warzel, writing for BuzzFeed:

Techmeme, then, wields tremendous power over a tremendously powerful group of people. And as its founder, Rivera has been quietly defining Silicon Valley’s narrative for the industry’s power brokers for more than a decade. But Rivera is uncomfortable — or unwilling — to reckon with how his influence has affected one of the most important and powerful industries in the world. The result is that Rivera can cast himself both as a gimlet-eyed insider with a powerful readership and as a mostly anonymous entrepreneur running a niche link blog from the comfort of his home. It’s a convenient cognitive dissonance.

I visit Techmeme once or twice on typical workdays. But I find it essential when I’m on vacation or otherwise offline for large stretches of time — it’s a great way to quickly check whether anything happened I need to know about. Nothing else like it.

Conor Oberst: Salutations review – sprawling companion to Ruminations | Music | The Guardian
(Nonesuch)

Last October’s Ruminations comprised intimate solo versions of 10 songs Conor Oberst had initially planned to record with a full band. Five months on, and those fleshed-out versions – recorded with the Felice Brothers and drummer Jim Keitner, and boosted by a further seven tracks – now follow. In some instances, the fuller arrangements have a transformative effect: in particular, Counting Sheep’s newfound warmth offsets much of its lyrical bleakness. Elsewhere, the rebooted Tachycardia and A Little Uncanny lose none of the originals’ power. Of the new songs, meanwhile, the propulsive riff of Napalm makes like Highway 61 Revisited, while the outwardly chirpy Anytime Soon is laced with regret. Overall, Salutations might be slightly sprawling and lack a little of the focus of Ruminations, but it makes for a highly enjoyable companion piece.
