Busy, busy day lecturing, but here's a few interesting things that I found the time to read:
The Psychology of Social Media outrage
This is essential reading for anyone working online.
The Atlantic gets a haircut
I kinda love The Atlantic. I wish something like it existed in the UK, but it doesn't, so I have to make do. It just redesigned, and, well, wow:

RSS is not dead
It's 2019, and one of the Interhacktive students I teach on the MA in Interactive Journalism at City, University of London, wrote about RSS Feeds. Voluntarily.
I'm so proud.
