A Teenager’s View on Social Media, written by an actual teen. A fascinating piece from a vantage point most of us could only guess at. My favorite quote, and the one to surely get the most pull-outs, is:

.ClientAreaContainer .element-columns-alpha-outer .element-columns-alpha-inner .element-column-right-alpha-outer .element-column-right-alpha-inner .element-column-right-alpha-content:first-child .ContentEditor > p .h2Grey

Got a redesign planned? Well, before you start designing or developing the new one, follow this great advice and make sure you’re learning everything you can from the old one first!
And finally, planning your next holiday trip? These travel posters just might make you consider Kepler-16b, or maybe HD 40307g… :-)
