2018-06-26T06:11:35+00:00June 21st, 2018|Categories: Culture, Media, Uncategorized|Tags: |

Netflix changed the world of entertainment -- first with DVD-by-mail, then with streaming media and then again with sensational original shows like "Orange Is the New Black" and "Stranger Things" -- but not without taking its fair share of risks. In conversation with TED curator Chris Anderson, Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings discusses the

Several of the masthead editors like to say that The Times strives to be data informed rather than data driven, which I think is an important distinction. We don’t let pageviews dictate our coverage or approach, but we do use data to understand reader engagement and the reach of our stories. Our reporters’ and editors’

Freudian Noir | by Geoffrey O’Brien | The New York Review of Books What holds it all together is a sense of form, fittingly enough since form is his overriding preoccupation—narrative form above all. Irresistibly drawn to the comparison of examples taken from as wide a field as possible, Bordwell collects specimens of filmmaking and

The functional role of the page number is simple: it provides order and sequence to a text. And while it is a supremely utilitarian design element, more thought is put into it than you might imagine. Should it go at the top or the bottom of the page? In the right or left margin? Or

In a paper published in March in the journal Science, David Lazer, Matthew Baum and 14 co-authors consider what we do and don't know about the science of fake news. They define fake news as "fabricated information that mimics news media content in form but not in organizational process or intent," and they go on to discuss problems
