Forbes
You hate internet adverts don't you? Most of us do, but like TV, radio, cinema and billboard hoardings, adverts have just become a part of our lives.

The crowdsourced map of internet traffic that keeps your favorite websites running
Quartz
It isn't easy keep the internet connected. A large country will bite off a chunk of a smaller one, and switch the network connection; or hackers will program a swarm of robots to overload a website, cutting it off from everyone else; or sharks will just eat undersea fiber optic cables.

Google stops showing authorship in search results, will still include Google+ posts from friends and pages
The Next Web
Google stopped showing authorship in search results, meaning articles will no longer include a link to the Google+ profile of their author. The company says that it found the information isn't as useful to its users as it hoped, and in some cases even distracts from the overall search results.

Tracking social media leads

Forbes
The debate over net neutrality, the idea of imposing traffic regulations on the Internet, is back. This time, advocates claim that the best way to continue today's fast pace of innovation and investment in broadband services is to put the Internet under the thumb of federal regulations from the 1930's, sometimes referred to as Title II or common carrier regulation.
