Articles to Read.

In 500ish words, Siegler shares his thoughts on “Messenger day” – Facebook’s latest integration of stories. He uses this great quote from Jurassic Park:

In case you missed it. Stories are taking over the world (check out my latest project at bottom of this email). They are no longer a feature, they are a medium of communication. Snapchat has them. Instagram’s are growing really fast. Messenger launched them. There are also Facebook stories. Whatsapp stories. This funny encounter happened between Snapchat and FB. The list goes on and on.
Q: Will the newsfeed be replaced by a stream of stories?

Is there such thing as too many collaboration platforms? There is Slack, Facebook’s Workplace, Box, Asana, the list goes on and on. Beware of collaboration tool overload.
