This article by Joseph L. Flatley at The Verge is a feat of modern reporting and storytelling. Do yourself a favor and watch the associated documentary, too.

I like to give everything a “link” / “longread” category and one other that describes the content. This one covers a topic I won’t likely post about often, so I’m filing it under “journalism” because, again, it’s just that good.

Wow. This is a public service, but the topic - internet scams - is utterly depressing.

this is the most incredible piece of media literacy advocacy I have ever encountered. lenny flatley has gone beyond any reasonable call of duty to expose such an eviscerating critique of the dot com bubble that continues to delude ourselves into imagining prosperity in the midst of crippling recession. real dangerous stuff!
