Culled from CJR’s frequently updated “Must-reads from around the Web,” our staff recommendations for the best pieces of journalism (and other miscellany) on the Internet, here are your can’t-miss must-reads of the past week:
The face behind Bitcoin
— Revealing the identity of the cryptocurrency’s inventor
To spur traffic at news sites, just Travoltify
— Lighthearted games are more popular than news articles
If the moon were only one pixel
— A tediously accurate map of the solar system
Is First Look turning a blind eye?
— “Given Omidyar’s interest in the news, Greenwald’s policy of self-blinding on the boss’s business interests feels more like a dodge than a last stand for journalistic ethics”
The last, dispensable action hero
— How the blockbuster-movie business has changed
Obama’s trauma team
— How Silicon Valley geeks saved healthcare.gov
The Editors are the staffers of Columbia Journalism Review.
