As one of the very first digital media organizations, HuffPost pioneered a journalism of listening through its vast contributor network. It covered the world with verve and wit, connecting in deep and personal ways with its vast audience. As we launch a brand-new name and look for HuffPost, I've been thinking a lot about these questions. How can we become better listeners? How can we serve you, our audience, better? We're doubling down on our bold, splashy style, and serving up the news with a sense of humor, outrage and empathy. We're also taking the suggestion of our audience across the globe and formally adopting the shorter name they've called us for years: HuffPost.

The stipend affair has not been one of Clark's shining moments. It was sad that a premier who once boasted she was going to put families first didn't appreciate the optics of accepting a semi-secret, five-figure top-up that was more than most British Columbians make in a year.
While computer technology has traditionally been focusing on inventing ever-more efficient programs and devices, not enough has been done to delight consumers and give them tools that enhance the quality of their everyday lives. Personal robotics could make up for much of that neglect, experts quoted in the article suggest.
Mere hours before the New York Times went to press with its look at the B.C. Liberal party's ethical scorecard, the party chose to get its 2016 fundraising results out ahead of the storm. One last chance at political counter-spin and what a marvel of spin it was. U.S. Republican party strategist Karl Rove would have been proud.
For a country that's historically been known as a wallflower, the attention is long overdue. But we shouldn't become "braggadocious" and let our national ego inflate. In short: We shouldn't become American. Canada has become so popular internationally precisely because of its humility.

Donald Trump. The narcissist with tissue paper thin skin who cannot abide any criticism whatsoever, from anyone, ever. The addict for whom there is never enough praise and adulation, who needs it so badly he cannot stop asking for compliments or, if they're slow in coming, telling the world, himself, how great he is.

Remember Donald Trump's campaign speeches when he was the Republican presidential candidate? All those promises he made? How his supporters lapped it all up? How loudly they cheered? How madly they waved their placards and signs? How riled up they got?
Yes, social media and the web have allowed us to too-conveniently block any news or facts we disagree with, while also flooding us with enough of the opposite. But here's the thing... we've always had this ability. We've always been tricked and pulled and tweezed like this.

While perhaps not as famous as its coffee or penchant for precipitation, Seattle's uncanny canine distinction makes it an ideal place to visit with your dog.

Love seems to be such a complex and arduous path nowadays. It wasn't always that way. What happened? Why is it different now? And can we return to how things were?
The newspaper is laying groundwork for local newsrooms.

It definitely gets the, uh, point across.
Virtual reality has been around for decades in various iterations but this is the first time it feels real enough to make a grown woman grimace with a memory long lost but alive again. Cardboard is so easy to figure out that its uses extend far past the daily pastiche of just hopping to Ecuador for an afternoon or cruising down to Bonnaroo in a convertible.

In most situations, measuring the return on investment (ROI) is the best way to determine marketing impact. However strictly relying on this metric limits innovation, growth and improvement that a mar...
I don't fault the New York Times liberal editorial pages celebrating a Liberal victory in Canada. It's their paper and they can print what they want. What got me were the Canadian journalists who rushed to their liberal friends down south with op-eds to complain how awful things were up here under Harper.

We humans have an innate desire to define things, don't we? Let's slap a label on something to determine it's perceived value, purpose or meaning. It's how we categorize and compartmentalize our surroundings. People, too.
The price of nice nails may not be what you expect.
It's 2015, and racism is far from eradicated. In the short but powerful documentary above from the New York Times, a group of boys between the ages of 10 and 25 talk about growing up black in America...
Two recent books by high profile psychiatrists provide readers with background knowledge that is essential in shaping our own responses to one of the biggest social problems of our times: severe mental illnesses. Now that psychiatrists are increasingly willing to enter into the messy public arena, it's up to the public to see what we can do with the information they are providing.

I sit on the periphery of journalism. A PR guy who needs journalists for business purposes and appreciates a good read, too. So I have been struck that this week the biggest news stories have been, well, about news.
