Scott’s Newsletter #17

Voice is going to breakout in 2017. I wrote about it. So did NiemanLab in their list of 2017 journalism trends.

I’m a big fan of Stratechery. This recent piece on unbundling was deeply fascinating.

I’m also big consumer of books. I’ve read four already this year (most recent: Walt Disney: An American Original). Books are also how former President Obama continued to grow while in office.

In case you’re wondering, this is what President Trump reads. Preview: not books.

The New York Times had an insightful feature on Trump’s inability to disconnect from the way he’s always done things.

In case you’re wondering, here’s what it’s like to move out of the White House.

Instagram is one of my top used social networks. Recode wrote about how it’s continued to innovate despite Snapchat’s attempt to steal the attention of the millennial audience.

Speaking of Snapchat, they are going to be worth a lot of money when they do IPO. They just don’t want to share too many details ahead of then.

Here’s who runs Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook page.

Storytelling is such a powerful communication medium. This breakdown of a Louis C.K. joke is a must watch.

Almost there… Buzzfeed with a tremendous piece of work that explains what happens to all those Christmas gifts you return.

Finally, I don’t plan on touching many things tomorrow after reading this.

Rock and Roll.
