    What Next TBD: Honey, I Sold the House to Zillow

    What Next TBD: Honey, I Sold the House to Zillow

    Between April and June of this year, Zillow bought nearly 4,000 homes. And they had no intention of holding onto them. The plan was to flip houses, often and at scale, joining the ranks of companies like Opendoor and Offerpad, also known as iBuyers. 

    So, why did Zillow put their plans on pause last weekend? Can online middlemen really change the way we buy and sell houses?

    What Next TBD: The Return of Hacktivism

    What Next TBD: The Return of Hacktivism

    Over the last month, the domain company Epik and the streaming service Twitch have fallen prey to massive-scale hacks. The hackers revealed not just email addresses, but detailed personal information too. For Twitch, it was the entire source code for their site. 

    But the attackers aren’t holding this data for ransom. In fact, they don’t seem to want much of anything. What’s motivating this new wave of activist hacks? And who suffers?

    What Next TBD: What Instagram Does to Teens

    Since 2018, internal research teams at Facebook have been studying the effect on Instagram on mental health. Their results couldn’t be more clear: Instagram is causing problems, especially for teen girls. 

    Why has it taken so long for their research to surface? And what can be done to improve the relationship between kids and the platform?

    What Next TBD: Are We Getting COVID Testing All Wrong?

    In the U.S., the PCR test is the gold standard for COVID testing. Common knowledge would have it that the test is more accurate—and therefore more effective at containing the spread of the dease—than the rapid antigen test. 

    What if that isn’t quite true?

    What Next TBD: China vs. Video Games

    Recently, China restricted video game playing to just three hours a week for its young people: 8pm to 9pm, Friday through Sunday.

    And that’s not the only change. Over the last few months, private tutors, diehard celebrity fans, and tech giants have all faced fresh restrictions from Beijing. What’s behind this new wave of crackdowns?
