The morning's chit-chat topic: Amazon Prime is raising its membership price, though the service has pretty much been a total bust for me, personally. Oh wells! Greg Dworkin poses the "Snowden Effect" question for the Pulitzers, and notes the growing Malaysian airliner mystery, "Americans Stick With Obamacare as Opposition Burns Bright," new research questioning the value of a social media-driven Internet, and a little background on the new proposed overtime regulations. Then it's back to the free-form chit-chat for a bit, analyzing the online information market and... camouflage everything. More on how the overtime pay issue "stuns" the business sector (if you feel you should care), then Joseph Williams' "My Life as a Retail Worker: Nasty, Brutish and Poor."
