New on Google search : Easy to scan search carousels that will surface your users' favorite content on Google mobile search!

This new feature (available only on google.com, in English for now) will help surface high quality, fresh/popular content for specific queries. Clustering the results together by the source of the content will help users choose the best possible suggestion and save a mobile-click. 

You can help our algorithm select the proper images or titles for your carousel results by following our rich snippets guidelines on our developers site. In particular the guidelines for Articles: https://developers.google.com/structured-data/rich-snippets/articles 
Videos: https://developers.google.com/structured-data/rich-snippets/videos 

Note that this markup is purely advisory - Our system use a variety of signals to determine which content to display in SERPs. Just like with Rich Snippets, we do not guarantee showing content you marked up.

Google limiting its emphasis on organic results isn't the only reason blog traffic is down; its also our changing preference in the type of content we consume (i.e. shit).

In the summer of 1978, Bill Murray played professional baseball with the Grays Harbor Loggers and established himself as a bona fide movie star. With the 40th anniversary of SNL airing Sunday night, here's the story of that glorious summer.

Mr. Carr managed to see the complexities of digital-age journalism from every angle, and to write about them with unparalleled clarity and wit.

35 years ago today, a tornado ripped through downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan. Both my mom and grandma worked at banks across the street from each other in the heart of downtown and rode out the storm from the basements of the buildings. They were just talking about this event over Easter dinner this year. The highlight of this conversation was my grandma saying to my mom "You know what's funny? I don't think I thought about you at all during that." Luckily my mom, like the rest of us at the table, thought this was hilarious.
Nothing like brutal honesty from grandma.
On Tuesday, 13 May 1980, a tornado struck the heart of Kalamazoo, Michigan. First touching down at 4 pm eight miles west of the city limits, it rapidly moved eastward through downtown until it dissipated east of the city at 4:25 pm. Only twenty-five minutes had elapsed, but the devastation left ...

I've been banging the responsive design drum for a few years now. This should be good news for those that made the investment.

This seems like an appropriate thing to come across during a 2 AM work break. Makes me feel a little better that I'm only looking at 3.5 hours tonight.

As much as I like Vice, the clip from Page One is excellent. 
Sometimes, David Carr was more quotable than the personalities he wrote about. Here’s a selection of his writing and public statements.
