Happy Thursday everyone! 

We’re putting the finishing touches on a new TLDR which you will have very soon. Meanwhile, on the internet, people wrote a lot of smart things this week, and I’m not sure I’ve got much to add to them, so I will just post them here rather than adding two cents that they don’t really need.

Stan Alcorn on why audio almost never goes viral.

Amanda Hess on BroBible, a website that (very surprisingly!) developed a sense of social consciousness.

Maureen O’Connor on how there’s not really such thing as TMI on the internet.

If you don’t like the idea of store surveillance cameras knowing your mood, then video data-mining will really creep you out a lot.

Also, people who are fans of links are all already reading Today in Tabs, right? If not, you very much should be.
