Abstract (Document Summary)

Fark describes itself as a news aggregator and an edited social networking news site. Fark does aggregate news, but only stories that are silly, inane, bizarre, dysfunctional, or about Florida. Each day, Fark members submit links to about 2,000 goofy news stories. Fark and BrainyQuote are both funny, the former by intent and the latter by cluelessness. BQ describes itself as the Web's largest quote database. It has an avowed mission to broaden the notion of what constitutes a worthy quote. ChartGirl is Hilary Sargent, a blogger for Boston.com, a Boston Globe Web site. Her specialty is using charts to explain complicated things in the news. Some are completely serious, such as the socio-criminal connections of the Tsarnaev brothers, suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings. ChartGirl has a good eye for chart design.
