And you've probably also heard by now that season two will have nine new episodes, titled as follows: MadMax, The Boy Who Came Back To Life, The Pumpkin Patch, The Palace, The Storm, The Pollywog, The Secret Cabin, The Brain and The Lost Brother. Now, The Duffer Brothers have revealed just how integral these titles are, and even gone so far as to say that some of the fan theories revolving around the titles are spot on. Here's what they said to The Hollywood Reporter : “Even if they arent the final chapter titles, everything in that teaser is major,” said Matt Duffer. “But they’re ambiguous enough that no one is going to be able to figure it out. Some of the fan theories online are amazing. Most are wrong, but I’ve read a few that are right or very close. Is it Reddit? Some of those people have figured stuff out based off of the chapter titles.

In Korea they take cosmetics extremely seriously. Innisfree staff/Korean staff in general are not only highly knowledgeable about their product lines, but are also notoriously eager to helpbordering on pushy. As two commenters on this Reddit thread point out: Commenter 1: "[Innisfree stores] are usually horrible for introverts. There are 3 salespeople for every customer, hovering around following you all around the store even if you tell them you're fine." Commenter 2: "In my experience, South Korea had the most aggressive customer service when it came to shopping. If I even showed remote interest in an item of clothing, a person working at the shop would walk over to try to help. It can get really annoying if you're just browsing. [But] if you're [doing focused] shopping it's actually kind of cool. My girlfriend went to a bunch of shops and got fantastic service.

Overall So that was this week's Raw in about four minutes. Here's the usual ratings recap, from top to bottom - In Awe, Cor, AVERAWGE, Poor and Bore. This week's Raw is Poor. But WWE are bringing back Kurt Angle! And Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon were nowhere to be seen on the show - the first time since the brand split, according to Reddit. Yes, that was great. And I enjoyed the Rumble teases and the Galanderson/Sheamaro tag match, too. But watching Smackdown and New Japan and the UK Championship tournament over the last fortnight have reminded me why I love wrestling. They've reminded me what standards should be. And a three hour Raw show, with a lot of filler, a squandered Kurt Angle announcement, and the same matches being done over and over again - Cesaro, Sheamus, Gallows, Anderson, New Day, Titus O'Neil, Enzo, Cass...it's lazy. And although it was much, much better than the two shows of 2017 so far, don't let that trick you into thinking it was anything other than below average.

Clearly defining whos a social influencer, these days, is becoming more difficult. At least, thats according to Insightpool CEO Devon Wijesinghe. His platform and service has recently announced a new tool that will democratize that social influencer information. This is Insightpools new Universal Search function. In it, marketers or brands can search through publicly available information that has categorized everyone on every type of social media platform, even including the ones you might overlook at first, like Yelp or Reddit. Our society says, for now, that millennials rule social media, but they dont want to feel like theyre being sold to, Wijesinghe told Adweek. Social marketing, not paid marketing, can add contextual experience to these brands. The Universal Search tool on Insightpool connects brand with influencers of varying degress; marketers can search using broad or narrow categories, in order to get as specific an audience as possible.

Image Source: Mims' Mini-Notebook 555 Circuits scans via Archive.org But the most striking thing about Mims' books is their staying power. First published long before most of the core demographic of reddit was even born, the AMA is a running stream of appreciation for the works and how they launched many careers in electronics. I'm also inspired by how Mims has monetized his life he takes his love of science and electronics and just goes for his goal with great vigor, and without regard to his lack of formal education in any of the fields he works in as a citizen scientist. There are valuable lessons there for the hacker community, far and above how to build a monostable multivibrator from a 555 chip.

Valve founder Gabe Newell took to Reddit yesterday for another hour-long AMA/Ask Me Anything session. Among the topics broached: Is Valve still working on singleplayer games? What are its plans for the future? And the perennial “What is up with Steam support? Why is it so bad?” The timing is pretty fortuitous. Last week Game Informer published an interview with an alleged Valve insider, one who subsequently claimed Half-Life 3 would never happen. And as per usual, Half-Life 3 was the topic of many dodged questions, though Newell did say “I personally believe all unidentified anonymous sources on the internet” when asked about the article. Good olsarcasm. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
