You’ve chosen: #whatpaulshouldsee when he comes back online tonight

In case you’re wondering what this graphic means: One year ago today, Verge writer Paul Miller quit the internet for a full year. In three hours, he’s rejoining the memetic forces, in an event that The Verge is milking tonight, big time. Because hey, why not? Anyway, people voted that the first thing he sees when he rejoins the ‘net is the Harlem Shake. Let’s introduce him in style right?

The inevitable question about my Lookmark experiment

quantumstarlight asks: WHY WHY WOULD YOU WANT THIS

» SFB says: Because, being a guy who blogs about stuff, I read a lot of stuff. Usually, it goes into my history, never to be seen again. By keeping it out in the open, it gives me a chance to think about the online fingerprints I create. There’s also a good balance here: Lookmark is very careful about only sharing from news sites unless you ask it to share elsewhere. Also, I don’t think I have much to hide. I don’t plan to keep it public forever, but a couple of weeks seems like fun. — Ernie @ SFB

Over a period of 17 months, everything was strictly regimented. Now they are returning to a life where they must deal with family and professional problems.
Mars500 project director Boris Morukov • Talking about the crew of “astronauts” after a 520 day simulated mission to Mars. The mission intended to answer the question: “ can people stay healthy and sane during six months rocketing to the Red Planet?” The participants, from countries like Europe, Russia and China, are expected to have problems adjusting to the “noise and activity of ordinary life.” Still, it seemed to go much better than this experiment in 2000, which ended “in drunken disaster when two participants got into a fistfight and a third tried to forcibly kiss a female crew member.” We would be a little frazzled, too, after hundreds of days of isolation and terrible food. source (viafollow)

We’ve never had The Boston Globe have its own front door in the digital space. It’s always been integrated with Boston.com. This was an opportunity to build something brand-new and to have it front and center and really do justice to the brand promise The Boston Globe offers to its readers.
Boston Globe publisher Christopher M. Mayer • On the paper’s launch of its own Web site this morning — a paywall-laden one that smartly separates the company’s newspaper content from Boston.com content that might work better on the Web. Boston.com is paywall-free and still serves breaking news, blogs and the whole bit. Bostonglobe.com focuses on the newspaper itself. It’s an interesting separation and we’re curious to see how it works out for them. The Boston Globe’s parent, the New York Times Company, famously started up a successful paywall experiment for the mothership paper. (Quote from a paywall-laden article, but there’s free registration for the next couple weeks; the source article links to the free Boston.com piece.) source (viafollow)
