If you can read a couple of sentences such as “The success of viral geniuses like Zimmerman shouldn’t be dispiriting to more traditional outlets, though. Rather, it’s evidence that social media is something that actually can be figured out — and, given the traffic at play, there’s a tremendous reward for those who figure it out” without needing to take several deep breaths and a walk around the block in an effort to restrain your rage then you are almost certainly living a more well-balanced life than I am. That said, THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS WRONG WITH THE WORLD RIGHT NOW and Tom Scocca identifies at least seven of them in this piece. We can meet back here tomorrow when we’re all done reading it and discuss.
