A week in the life of EB: Our picks from the last seven days

Words by Louise Brailey

We don’t need to tell you that we live in an era of information surplus; where every day our attention spans are torn asunder by channels competing for our eyes and ears and keystrokes—and that’s before IRL gets involved, too. I swear if I neglect my Google Reader for one day more it’s going to freak. We don’t expect you to catch every piece of content that goes up on EB, as much as we would like you to. This is why we’ve come up with the Weekly Round-Up, a Sunday digest of all our favorite content from the preceding seven days that may have slipped under the radar. Time to kick back with your beverage of choice and get stuck in.
