What I read today

Today a Gizmodo writer insults the honor of the obscure but useful Google Voice, Jenny McCarthy gets smacked by Twitter, Facebook’s secret intentions to reproduce all of us digitally become more obvious, young women’s rights advocate Malala’s dad has something to say, people who hate science hate Cosmos, and the greatest video arcade game of all time is getting a reboot on Steam that looks to expression the true soul of the original Gauntlet. Oh, and there’s some SEO stuff too, but still no cupcakes. Here’s an angry cat!

What I read on Monday (week 2)

This was a long Monday, following a weekend of birthday parties, putting our house back together, and celebrating a friend’s new sandwich shop/console game arcade. No article commentary, but mostly interesting stuff.  Cupcake post later this week! I need so much coffee…
