Friday Wrap #84: Jelly breaks news, Facebook readies app and trending topics, GP lets employees post

The Definition of WrapIt was 20 years ago today…that the earth shook and my life changed. The Northridge Earthquake struck just after 4 a.m., while it was still dark. I lived in Granada Hills at the time, just a few miles from the epicenter. I was born in Hollywood and raised in the San Fernando Valley. I was no stranger to earthquakes, which for natives is more an occasion for wagering (“I have $5 that says it was 4.7”) than for terror. But this was different.

The damage was… Read More »

I’m trying out a new format for the wrap that will make it a quicker read for you while allowing me to include more items that you might have missed over the course of the week. Let me know if you like it. I’ll elaborate on two or three stories at the top of the Wrap, then more briefly summarize others. If a subject got attention from multiple outlets (as hashtags did this week), I’ll wrap the Wrap with a quick summary of what they each had to say. In the meantime, all I continue to collect all the posts and articles over the course of the week are in my link blog, LinksFromShel.tumblr.com.
