  • Kudos to Merriam-Webster for being one of the only online dictionaries to indicate the distinction between blonde and blond;
  • Blond comes from French, in which it has masculine and feminine forms;
  • Will you be ridiculed if you don’t use blonde and blond in their gender-specific forms? Probably not. Is it cool to know the difference? Definitely.

Here are four things that Baratunde Thurston realized during his 25-day hiatus from the internet:

1. I had become obsessed with The Information. 
2. I shared too much. 
3. I was addicted to myself. 
4. I forsook the benefits of the Industrial Age.

"The greatest gift I gave myself was a restored appreciation for disengagement, silence, and emptiness. I don’t need to fill every time slot with an appointment, and I don’t need to fill every mental opening with stimulus."
