Against ‘long-form journalism’ — When it comes to great magazine writing, what’s in a name?

Google’s road map to global domination — The race to photograph every corner and crevice on the planet

Can you factcheck a twerking video? — True on the internet

It’s no contest, Time: Edward Snowden is the Person of the Year — Bestowing the annual honor on Snowden would send an important message

A ‘whole new way of killing cancer’? — Takedown of Esquire’s overheated cancer story
