Conventional wisdom holds that there are two types of content that reliably succeed in a digital medium – kittens and naked people. As Steven and I are always trying to refine STS to give readers more of what they want, we’ve exhaustively considered both options.

Yeah, a puppy seems like it just might do the trick.
