  • Doc Searls Weblog · Where Journalism Fails — “What’s the story?” No question is asked more often by editors in newsrooms than that one. And for good reason: that’s what news is about: The Story.
  • My Car Accident | The Brain of Shawn — On March 2, 1999, I was on my way to work. Apparently I had a cellphone in one hand, a cup of pumpkin spice cappuccino in the other hand, and an open briefcase next to me on the seat. The problem is that I was driving a car at the time, and apparently I didn’t enough hands for such multitasking. My car went off the road and into a group of trees, missing each one. That part was amazing.
  • Volodymyr Zelensky Is Not a Meme | WIRED — The Ukrainian president's actions in the face of the Russian invasion turned him into a hero online. But the Marvelization of political figures is dangerous.
