The best articles I read in 2014

December 30, 2014

This was a damn good year for internet writing. I found some great reads on my favorite news outlets and through Twitter, as usual, but Medium also became one of my favorite places to gain some insight about how others view the world. Long story short, I found no shortage of thought-provoking pieces to read this year. In fact, there are a lot of things I wish I had more time to read. Below is a list of some of the best things I read this year, from fantastic pieces of journalism, to inspirational posts, to articles that challenged my views and forced me to look at the world a little differently.

The 6 (because I couldn’t just choose 5) most influential articles I read this year:

  1. Quite possibly the most influential thing I’ve read in a long time, on white people and racism: “I don’t know what to do with good white people
  2. For a reminder that you need to do things in order to make them happen, text from Shonda Rhimes’ speech: “Dreams are for losers
  3. The best example of sexism in the tech industry I’ve come across so far: “The ping-pong theory of tech sexism
  4. Beautiful writing about the crash of Swiss Air Flight 111 in 1998: “The long fall of one-eleven heavy” (originally published in 2000, but brought up again after the disappearance of flight MH370)
  5. Where to go when you’re stuck: “Navigating stuckness
  6. On inequality’s approaching tipping point: “The pitchforks are coming… for us plurocrats

And a few other articles I bookmarked this past year.
