HuffPo has a loose definition of “Women.”

Bow Down. I knew the day would come when I would be named one of the funniest women on Twitter.

Cherish this moment.

Major Media ISP Goes Down

buzzfeed:

Datagram, the ISP whose Manhattan servers host BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, Gawker, and other sites, has lost power, an official there told us via text this evening.

“Basement flooded, fuel pump off line - we got people working on it now. 5 feet of water now,” the official wrote.

BuzzFeed’s site and story page are back online, thanks to a Content Delivery Network, Akamai, which hosts the content at servers distributed around the world.

FIVE FEET OF WATER took down three of the biggest new-media sites on the internet. At the same time. Think about how crazy that is.

huffingtonpost:

Raw weblog data gets organized into summarized, usable database tables via a couple of data processing steps. Sometimes intermediate tables are used to help calculate sums, groups, and values at the level we are interested in. For example, variables recorded at very granular time intervals might later be summed or averaged in longer groups of time. Storing what happened in the past hour or day is intuitive, whereas its hard to think of when you would need to know the exact millisecond a user clicked on something. You end up with tables that have a structure closer to what you might remember from the datasets you saw in the Intro to Stats class you aced, and these can be regularly used by developers or analysts without much hassle/manipulation.
Sideboob Exposed: Raw, Summary, and Usable Web Data aka: Why we have a whole page dedicated to this phenomenon. 

This is the most fascinating article in HuffPo history …

… and it appears to all be for the purpose of an elaborate sideboob graph.

huffingtonpost:

Evidence of the constant shift of political parties right here: 10 famous black republicans.

In this list, HuffPo puts Harriet Tubman and 50 Cent on the same plane — despite the fact that the Republican Party is a significantly different party from what it was 150 (or even 50) years ago. How did this get through the editorial grinder? There is just so much wrong with this list that we don’t even know where to start.

What.

We have to give credit to HuffPo here — they find stuff other news outlets wouldn’t touch. In this case, literally. The photo is over here. It’s late-80s Mike, we think.

On HuffPo and the legitimacy of a news outlet

musingsbymattheous says: Can you please stop acting like The Huffington Post is a legitimate news source? They’re worst than Fox News.

» SFB says: FWIW, they have more Pulitzers than Fox News does. (One.) While we have our disagreements with HuffPo’s style of aggregation and approach at times, they are a legitimate news source and they do their own original reporting. If they do something questionable (which happens from time to time), we’ll call them out on it, just like we do with Fox News or any other outlet. Just because you don’t like something doesn’t make them illegitimate; it just puts them up for more scrutiny. — Ernie @ SFB

HuffPo’s new weekly iPad magazine, ”Huffington.”, just launched today. It’s a free download, though issues cost 99 cents a piece. Check it out if you ever wondered what HuffPo would be like with more in-depth stories and better design.
