The curious (and vital) power of print
The New York Times
Who buys the print edition of the newspaper? Just a few Luddites who wouldn't know a smartphone if their horse-drawn buggy crushed it on the cobblestones? Octogenarians and their older brothers? That seems to be the conventional wisdom. On Twitter, Chris Boutet had a funny line recently. "The following is a list of people who still subscribe to newspapers: Journalists, their parents."

Instagram just launched a new standalone app called Layout that lets users easily create photo collages by combining multiple photos from their phone into a single image.

Six things I learned while writing my first book
Lifehacker
Books are complicated things. It doesn't matter if it's a technical manual, non-fiction, or fiction, keeping track of everything requires a lot of effort, which is exactly why special software exists for helping you do that. After trying out a bunch of different software, I settled on Ulysses (though Scrivener is excellent as well, as is Evernote) to get everything organized.

How to self-publish an audiobook
Publishers Weekly
Audiobooks can open up new markets and revenue streams for self-published authors — but, as with all things indie, you have to put in plenty of time, effort, and money. "We're not just standing there reading a book into a mic," says Jeffrey Kafer, a professional voiceover artist who has recorded audiobooks for the likes of Clive Barker and Maya Banks. "So much else goes into it."

Urban farming in your backyard? There's a vertical aeroponic garden for that
Treehugger
I have to admit that when it comes to the launch of new products in the green scene, I do rather enjoy seeing novel solar gizmos and gadgets, but I'm most excited when I see innovations designed to help more people grow their own food. And with all of the recent projects being launched in the urban farming space, it's starting to look as if joining the homegrown revolution is easier than ever before.

Facebook may host news sites' content
The New York Times
Nothing attracts news organizations like Facebook. And nothing makes them more nervous. With 1.4 billion users, the social media site has become a vital source of traffic for publishers looking to reach an increasingly fragmented audience glued to smartphones. In recent months, Facebook has been quietly holding talks with at least half a dozen media companies about hosting their content inside Facebook rather than making users tap a link to go to an external site.

How Bitcoin's technology could revolutionize intellectual property rights
CoinDesk
The bitcoin block chain is well known for its use as a ledger for digital currency transactions, but it has the potential for other, more radical uses, too — uses that are only now beginning to be explored. The online service Proof of Existence is an example of how the power of this new technology can have applications far beyond the world of finance, in this case, giving a glimpse of how bitcoin could one day have a substantial impact in the fields of intellectual property and law.
