THIS will be a quick one this week.

Let me share with you some stories I’ve found lying in the back corners of the web that you may have not seen.

1. Being a “digital nomad”: http://thenextweb.com/insider/2013/12/15/7-digital-nomads-explain-how-th...

2. On Instagram Direct: http://thenextweb.com/facebook/2013/12/13/instagram-direct-isnt-snapchat...

3. Google and robots: http://techcrunch.com/2013/12/14/google-buys-boston-dynamics-creator-of-...

4. Delivery by aerial drones: http://techcrunch.com/2013/12/14/amazon-swarm

5. China and the moon: http://www.theverge.com/2013/12/14/5210042/china-successfully-lands-spac...

If you’re wondering where I got these links, I got them from a news aggregator service that I’ve been using for almost a year now - Pulse. It has app versions of it, as well as that of a web-based version that you can get into via your browser.

Go to http://www.pulse.me/, connect it to your Facebook account for instant access, or you can register the traditional way with your email address.

It’s a nifty service among the many other aggregator services that I use. If you’re an information junkie like I am, this is a good place to start satisfying that crave for information.

See you next week!
