Note 3/31/13: Evolver.fm is on a reduced publishing schedule due due to family logistics on the part of the editor.
We don’t deny that plenty of the stuff on the internet isn’t worth much for long. Our news cycles seem to take about four seconds these days, and we spend so much time tweeting, retweeting, Facebooking, and InstaPapering the news that it’s surprising we even get to read much of it in the first place.
However, text is still a useful — perhaps the most useful — communication medium of our time. In part, this is because it packs more thoughts per second than video, with its monotonous real-time recitation of the news, ever can. Besides, you don’t need to comb your hair to generate text.
Anyway, we digress. In the spirit of highlighting articles and feature stories that might still be interesting days, weeks, months, or even years after they were written, we’re proud to introduce a new category on Evolver.fm, Evergreen.
In the new Evergreen section, you will find every article on our site that should be worth reading during any season — thus the term “evergreen,” which we editors use to connote content like this. Evergreen lasts longer, and we’re confident that you should be able to scroll through this new designation and find all sorts of neat stuff you missed earlier.
Please also let us know if you have any other ideas on how we can improve the site as we contemplate another round of improvements to our dual-pronged music apps publication, comprising both articles about and a hand-curated database of the best music apps that we launched late last year.
