If you use the internet, this should matter to you. Last Sunday, former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver leapt into a 13-minute tirade on his new HBO show Last Week Tonight, introducing millions of viewers to the very important, yet often misunderstood concept of net neutrality. The video has since gone viral and – thanks both to Oliver’s pleas and the Reddit community – tens of thousands of internet commenters took to the FCC’s website and crashed the system with their complaints. See the video for yourself here: It seemsRead More
Does it seem like there’s been more and more commercial encroachment on your life? It should.

It seems everyone from Huffington Post to The Daily BeastRead More
Before you have a rage stroke, that’s not just another clickbait headline. It’s true and I’ll tell you why. First, let’s back up and take a moment to bask in the majesty of the Internet. In terms of sheer size, scope, and overall effect on humanity, it’s a pretty sweet invention–maybe even one of the most important inventions of all human history. (Obviously, the #1 most important will always be melted cheese.) Almost everything in the developed world has been revolutionized by and now depends on the internet: shopping, universityRead More
In the past year, we were introduced to short, 6-second videos that captured our A.D.D.-addled minds and distracted us for (sometimes) hours on end. Vines were introduced in January of 2013 and progressively grew more and more popular throughout the year. This Vine compilation of the best of the year showcases some of the most creative (and ridiculous) Vines.
