I recently wrote on why I think 2015 will be the year of the podcast. It seems I’m not alone in my thinking.
Our over-reliance on the little, red squiggly lines below misspelled words has completely ruined our ability to think through proper spelling and word usage. And we wonder why the Scripps Spelling Bee is on TV. Apparently those few dozen kids are the only ones left in the country who can spell basic words like necessary, tomorrow, and committee without spell check.
Until 2014, we had no clear cut way to determine a champion in what is arguably the most popular college sport in the country. The BCS got us close but still opened itself up for criticism with the inclusion of only two teams. Now with a four team playoff, we have a much clearer picture of the national championship in college football.
