Perhaps you’re like me, and you have the attention span of a gnat. Or, maybe you’re just like most people, and you don’t have time to read today’s news, in depth. That’s where this handy site comes in: TL;DR. (You may have seen that acronym before; it’s gaining popularity quickly across the web. It stands for “Too Long; Didn’t Read.”) What this site does, in a nutshell:
We’re TL;DR — we give you the summary, the synopsis, the main contention and the entire idea in one simple paragraph. Enough to get you to skim them. Browse a week’s worth of topics in a few minutes. So you don’t have to say, “Too Long; Didn’t Read”. We’re the news, but faster. We pull the news from popular sites. And we have fun while we’re at it. (From TL;DR “About“)
Here’s a screenshot from the “Featured” page:
What does this mean to me, Laura?
- News briefs are sorted into broad categories, so you can focus on those of interest to you.
- Archives of past briefs are also available
- You can also use iOS or Android apps
- You can also get featured briefs via the site’s Twitter feed
And there you go–short and sweet. After all, I wouldn’t want you to say “TL;DR.”
