  • Why The Daily Is So Yesterday – from tidBITS, good commentary on the yesterDaily.

  • Less Text, Please: Contemporary Reading Behaviors and Short Formats | I’d Rather Be Writing – Mid-length consideration from a tech writer on short form text reading. Reviews some of the more recent arguments, and tries to set a lower limit on brevity. with "The same people who clipped back my copious callouts into a few marketing bubbles would have also pruned this post from 2,000 words to 200. Would that make the text more valuable? Just as there’s a balance between simplicity and obscurity, there’s a balance between length and learning. More people might read a short text, but a longer text yields more learning. Is there no pleasure in learning anymore?" Tends to skip over the Clive Thompson notion that he mentions: "The torrent of short-form thinking is actually a catalyst for more long-form meditation." – (techwriting reading shortform brevity )
