    Oh, I'm ignorant and part of a "culture of oppression" now. Bet you're a ton of fun at parties.

    I'm proud to be straight. Who cares?

    Lotta Apple fanboys up in here.

    Had this been Jony Ive's idea it would be literally the best thing in the universe.

    You mean like how Outlook/OWA has done for years?

    I think it looks awesome, especially since it's optional and you can drag/drop programs into it and move them around. It's definitely innovative and different from what anyone else it doing.

    But as far as we can tell Vox will have a single writer, explaining a single story to us like we're idiot children that need to be hand fed news. Anything other than that and it's a group blog and those have been around for a decade. What I envision Vox being, seeing as I know how both Klein and Yglesias operate, is it will be a "wonk"-ish blog with lots of charts and infographs in each story to make it look "hip" and "cool" while giving us no more information about the particular story than CNN or Fox News are doing a couple clicks away.

    I don't care about the aviation record of the Boeing 777 or the personal history of the ground mechanic that worked on it that one time. I want to know if it's been found or the status of the search and any new info about the cause. Other news outlets do this just fine. Vox is just another trendy startup that offers nothing new to an already crowded space.

    The news isn't that complex. "Explanatory journalism" is the most buzzwordy garbage I've ever heard. It's just a way for them to insert their opinions into the story and act like it's a straight news piece.

    Sounds stupendous. Treat readers like morons that have to have their news "explained" to them by elitist bloggers pretending to be real journalists. VANITY PROJECT ALERT
