New “Subatomic Unit” of News

This rings very true to me:

“Wearables could make the ‘glance’ a new subatomic unit of news

I misjudged — I didn’t think nearly radically enough. The quick-hit stream of Twitter or the Facebook News Feed is giving way to a largely agnostic, mostly opt-in “notification layer” on top of the phone screen.

And yet even that notification layer feels larded in the context of the single-most-interesting media-industry detail from yesterday’s Apple presentation: We are about to enter the era of ‘glance journalism.'”
