The MediaVillage Articles Club: Friendsgiving
In celebration of the giving season, this month's Articles Club was billed as a Friendsgiving-style potluck. Were it not for some delicious chili and cornbread from our hostess, Chelsea, the evening may have fallen short of expectations. (I came armed with store-bought desserts and we also ditched a called-for side dish in favor of some Cabernet.) Our conversation covered a lot of ground this month even if our dinner table spread did not. As we look ahead to 2016 we have set a resolution for more diversity in our slate of suggested reading. With all due respect to The New York Times, we are going to make more of an effort to share articles from other publications in the coming months.
Stuart Elliott Revives "20 Questions" -- A Popular Holiday Tradition
One of the best friends of a columnist, apart from an elastic deadline, is the perennial feature, and I was known for one during my more than two decades writing for my previous employer.

DPAA: Audience Targeting -- Are You Missing the Mark?

Net Neutrality Work-Arounds; Cutting Cords, Any Cords!
