Yes to the Dress? — The Message — Medium
You can’t get the dress traffic from angry competition any more than you can get “Snow Fall” by pasting a bunch of stories and pictures together. You can’t buy software for it or squeeze it out of people. You have to build it over time with lots of nerds of all sort and make people not hate their lives along the way.

(Mr.) Stacy Lambe on Twitter: "Goodbye Internet. I quit you. (via @CNNTonight) http://t.co/Pqij5CtxAO"
tl;dr: in the sunset of dissolution, everything is illuminated by the aura of nostalgia, even the guillotine.

Moz’s Rand Fishkin on Why Licensing Content Is for Suckers, His Favorite Wizard, and the Future of SEO | The Content Strategist, by Contently
You will also have a barometer. I think with a lot of folks, when they publish content, it’s tough for them to tell whether they didn’t promote it well or whether the content didn’t resonate. For us, it’s pretty easy to know that if a content resonates, it will be promoted and shared and reach lots of people.

I think it also means that our content is perceived more authoritatively because of the community behind it and because of the track [record] and history we’ve built up in the market leadership. I think there’s a high standard that the content is held to—which can be a really tough thing when you have let folks down.

In a curious way, Google is all about answers. So you could say that Google is increasing answers over time, but what's interesting is that answers are becoming cheap; they're almost free, and I think what becomes scarce in this kind of place that we're headed to is questions, a really good question, because a really good question can unleash new questions.                                             

In a certain sense what becomes really valuable in a world running under Google's reign, are great questions, and that means that for a long time humans will be better at than machines.

Machines are for answers; humans are for questions.

Subtle Click Feedback Effects - Prismatic
But these kind of effects can actually be quite useful when applied to any click or touch interaction. The subtle feedback would indicate that the action element was actually hit, making the felt response time seem less if done appropriately.

It’s Kind of Cheesy Being Green — The Message — Medium
It’s probably one line of code to change the color, to reduce the tension between the blues and the greens, to make it possible for a broke dude stuck on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to mack on a rich girl with an iPhone 6 without her knowing that he’s not in the same ecosystem. Why be so petty, Apple? In any case, I’m sticking with Android.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler: This Is How We Will Ensure Net Neutrality | WIRED
Using this authority, I am submitting to my colleagues the strongest open internet protections ever proposed by the FCC. These enforceable, bright-line rules will ban paid prioritization, and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services. I propose to fully apply—for the first time ever—those bright-line rules to mobile broadband. My proposal assures the rights of internet users to go where they want, when they want, and the rights of innovators to introduce new products without asking anyone’s permission.

Chris Granger - Coding is not the new literacy
The process of creating a model is an act of discovery - we find out what pieces we need as we shape our material. This means we needn't fully specify a system to get started, we can simply craft new pieces as we go. We end up exploring the system as we create it and don't have to get a "complete" model to gain value. We can simply tinker. We can shave a little off or glue a some on to see what happens. And along the way, we bolster our intuition of how systems behave.
