Google “what to do if you drop your baby” and the first result is from a site called Fatherly. That’s by intention. It’s not that Fatherly aims to perpetuate a stereotype of the “doofy dad” — quite the opposite, stressed cofounder and CEO Mike Rothman. But it’s something hundreds of thousands of people search for...

Mixed reality, computer vision, and brain–machine interfaces: Here’s the future The New York Times’ reborn R&D lab sees

When it comes to emerging technologies, there’s a lot to keep newsrooms busy. Virtual reality has promise, and so do chatbots. Ditto, too, for connected cars and connected homes.

Vice News Issues takes a “homepage-isn’t-dead” approach to big topics (first up: populism)

Is it possible to take a step back and go deep on a topic on the Internet? It should be, but the busy, crazy news cycle of the last few months has made it difficult to focus on anything for more than a few minutes. A new project, Vice News Issues, is a digital magazine-y...

So how in the world do you break into a career in podcasting, anyway?

Welcome to Hot Pod, a newsletter about podcasts. This is issue 119, published May 9, 2017. S-Town breaks 40 million downloads in its first month. That’s global downloads, by the way.
