Check it.

+ "Uprooted"
One of the latest works by Dai Sugano of the San Jose Mercury News. It follows the lives of a few people displaced from their homes in Sunnyvale, California. Aside from capturing some intense stories, the photography/cinematography was sweet.
+ "Silicon Valley"
Some of the photography is fairly powerful, a few of the pictures started to really stress me out...I guess when thinking about Silicon Valley, I can already hear the humming of electricity.
Sidenote: to learn more about the idea of the pitch of the machines around us making us happy or sad, check out this episode of This American Life. You'll want to speed ahead to Act III, which is about thirteen minutes into the program (or just listen to the whole thing because it's an excellent episode).
+ "Controversial Tell-All Book Reveals Wrestling Fans Are Fake"
"No, I'm not a fan of the sport, I don't think anyone over the age of fifteen is actually a fan of the sport."
+ "Driving Detroit"
Their interactive map is interesting, the stories interesting, and the photography is pretty impressive (after cycling around the city a bit this past summer, it's cool being able to recognize a lot of places). Altogether, the Detroit Free Press pulled together a cool package here.
