A Crisis of Cognition

In journalism, we think our job is to “get the story.” We teach the skill of “knowing what a story is.” We call ourselves “storytellers.” We believe that through stories — or as we also like to say when feeling uppish, “narrative”— we attract and hold attention, impart facts in engaging fashion, and explain the world. My greatest heresy to date — besides questioning paywalls as panacea — is to doubt the primacy of the story as journalistic form and to warn of the risk of valuing drama, c...

Roku has inked a deal with Adobe to solve one of marketers' biggest pain points in OTT advertising

One of the biggest challenges for OTT advertisers is targeting a large enough audience within streaming apps that is comparable to TV. Adobe's advertisers can now match their first-party data with Roku's data to serve targeted ads, which in theory will cap ad frequency. But not all advertisers have good first-party data, so they still lean on third-party data. Marketers have a scale problem with over-the-top advertising. Advertisers struggle to find an audience within publishers' OTT apps tha...

The best restaurants in Denver

Just like the city itself , Denver’s restaurant landscape is quickly growing and improving. You can still find a cowboy-style meal that’s heavy on the beef (and plenty of Rocky Mountain oysters if you know where to look), but a young and diverse crop of chefs is keeping the options from getting stale. “With the population boom came more restaurants, which pushed every chef and concept to change, innovate, and create with passion to be the best and win over customers,” chef Joseph Lewis of Rhei...

David Tennant Says He Won’t Be in ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 3

When the final season of Jessica Jones drops on Netflix this year, don’t expect to see David Tennant‘s infamous Kilgrave. Technically, Kilgrave was killed at the end of season 1, but the character returned in hallucinatory form to mess with Jessica’s mind in season 2. If you were expecting to see him pop up one final time, David Tennant says it’s not happening. But is he trying to protect a spoiler? Jessica Jones, like all other Marvel Netflix shows, is coming to an end. Daredevil, Iron Fist...

Bizarre pre-dawn experience...

After writing the last post, about a WaPo column by Alyssa Rosenberg, I clicked on my "Alyssa Rosenberg" tag. It only had 2 other posts. One, from a year ago, was to another WaPo column ("Hillary Clinton and I are done"), but the other was from 2009, about whether long novels are still worth reading. It was a clip from a Bloggingheads diavlog, Rosenberg with Matt Yglesias, and I needed to fix some code, so I clicked through to the Bloggingheads website. I saw that there was a new diavlog with Bo...

The Death of God, The Descent of Man, The Death of Humanity

Is there any figure in all Western history more ironic than Friedrich Nietzsche, he who proclaimed the death of God? In mock tragic voice, his Madman even pretended to mourn it: God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of at...

Argument analysis: What would John Marshall do?

“[I]n McCulloch vs. Maryland, the court said that in general we don’t want to be micromanaging all the details of state taxation,” attorney Lawrence Rosenberg told the justices at the end of Monday’s oral argument in Dawson v. Steager. That’s not the way that McCulloch is usually remembered—far more famous is Chief Justice John Marshall’s statement in the 1819 case equating “the power to tax” with “the power to destroy.” But in any event, it was apparent by the end of the argument that the curre...

The 15-year-old book CEO Satya Nadella handed his execs to start defusing Microsoft's toxic culture explains exactly how the words we use can get people on our side — or turn them against us

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella asked members of his executive team to read the book "Nonviolent Communication" after he took over in 2014, in an effort to change the company's culture. At the time, Microsoft was known for having a culture of hostility, infighting, and backstabbing. The book describes how people often fail at describing how they feel, and it's one of the biggest barriers to effective communication. One of the biggest barriers to effective communication is being unable to desc...

Southern California synagogues reconsider security measures after Pittsburgh shooting

Most of Daniel Rosenberg’s family moved from Eastern Europe to Pittsburgh in the early part of the 20th Century as refugees, fleeing the pogroms when violent anti-Semitic street mobs mercilessly attacked Jewish families. “They thought Pittsburgh was paradise, that they were safe there,” said the music producer who grew up, attended synagogue and had his bar mitzvah in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood, a well known Jewish enclave. But, on Saturday, Oct. 27, all he could feel was fear and h...
