What you, being away from the Internet for a little while, might have missed.

  • A surfer almost got swallowed by a whale

By the way, a few weeks ago, amidst a content “reshuffling,” we ceased production of our daily roundup Ones and Zeros. But after hearing all of your complaints, we decided we would let you help us do it. From here on in, tweet at @motherboardtv with your links, tagged with #one for “this gives me a positive feeling,” or #zero for “this is unfortunate,” and so on. We’re looking for the things that are good, great, and giggle-worthy, as well as the ones that are disappointing, despicable, and detestable. For example:

Or something to that effect. Don’t be shy. Every week we’ll give a little prize to someone who pitches in with a #one or #zero.
