Net Shop Boys — Real Life
Grailed is an aperture, albeit a narrow one, into how men negotiate their masculinity, how they resolve their bodies with the world. The quirks in their performance, where I can find them, act as ruptures in a gender that’s mythologized as self-evident, never practiced, never learned. These holes are doors. They are a way in.

Internet Now as Popular as TV, Survey Shows - Digits - WSJ
So what are people doing less? Listening to the radio and reading things like newspapers and magazines offline, according to the survey. (We at Digits guess they might be spending less time doing other things too, like “going outside.”)

Smartphones bring mixed blessings for newspapers | Media | guardian.co.uk
The report found that men were almost 50% more likely to access the mobile internet using some form of app than women. About 46% of men who access mobile media use an app to do so, whereas just 35% of women do. Overall about 70% of UK users of mobile internet devices did so using a traditional browser, similar to the percentage for PCs – with 55% also opting to use an app.

Attention Whole Foods Shoppers - By Robert Paarlberg | Foreign Policy
If we are going to get serious about solving global hunger, we need to de-romanticize our view of preindustrial food and farming. And that means learning to appreciate the modern, science-intensive, and highly capitalized agricultural system we've developed in the West. Without it, our food would be more expensive and less safe. In other words, a lot like the hunger-plagued rest of the world.

SwebApps, Mobile Roadie Try to Democratize iPhone Apps - TIME
"In a few years, mobile apps will be to businesses what sites are today," says Chocano. "They'll serve as a product catalog, a shopping tool, a social-media resource, a way to gather client information, a media gallery — all on the go, at your customer's fingertips."

The New Normal - Richard Florida
If the Pew data are accurate, it's not tech-driven consumption - less than a third (31 percent) of those surveyed consider high-speed internet a necessity, and just 4 percent say they need an iPod.

But there are many things that are not asked about, as Salmon notes, like " intangibles,'" or spending on personal development (education, learning), higher-quality food, exercise, health-care, green products, or a cleaner environment.

Comixology and the future of connected commerce | FactoryCity
