We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of January 19-February 2, 2014. We discuss four trends we saw as we flipped articles into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). The four trends were Net Neutrality/Access, artificial intelligence, continued discussions of MOOCs, and Facebook turning 10 (the grown of social media).

Our pick of the week from the resources we flipped is a report about advertising to children and teens. The report looks at how digital media has changed marketing. It is an interesting look at how the lines between advertising and entertainment have blurred.
