Due to a busy week, plus the events in Boston, this week’s installment of our favorite shares is a few days late. We hope you enjoy.
I grew up in Massachusetts and lived for many years in the in Allston and Brighton — just a few short minutes from Watertown, MA. Like everyone who relies on social media to receive real-time news, there were times when I was not terribly happy with how some news organizations were reporting events with, seemingly without much regard for verification. BuzzFeed is an outlet that I enjoy for frivolous things, but there have been times when their lack of seasoning and experience irked me. But last week they really impressed, both on Twitter and with their contextual recaps, which were largely driven my the abundance of iconic and incredible imagery that was generated throughout the week, from the day of the bombings through Friday’s violent climax. I encourage you to check out all of their coverage from last week. Based on what I saw, I think BuzzFeed earned some well-deserved journalistic stripes.

Natural user interfaces (NUI) are here to stay. Remember the first time you played with an iPhone? It was magical how natural touching and swiping felt. Computers exist to make our lives easier and natural vision recognition does just that. I, for one, welcome our NUI overlords.
