  • Summer jams alert: today’s the last day to stream Jenny Lewis’s new album, The Voyager for free on NPR.
  • Nina Power’s brilliant piece on the history of feminism in the digital age: “Internet feminism has opened up modes of interpretive experience that were previously obscured or partial for many: I include myself in this grand pedagogical experiment. Long may it continue, and those who seek to stop it will not succeed: feminist information, you could say, wants to be free.”
