  1. Jackson, would it be possible for you to change the format of your headline posts so that the headlines are the links themselves, rather than just bolded? It catches my eye much better when I’m skimming through feeds, and the link-text will benefit your sources much better than text like “WSJ”, “GigaOM”, and “release”.

    Hope you’ll take the suggestion, keep up the good work!
