The piece does a great job of introducing a new side to arguably one of the most popular topics on the web, Facebook. It is topical, because most everyone interacts on Facebook in some way shape or form. It has impact because everyone has a personal stake in their information, and how these companies are using it. Many people may not know that their information is being used and therefore the element of surprise may be the best part of the story

There's nothing like a good story on developing green technology. Green technology is among some of the most popular, topical and important. The story does a good job of visualizing the story with the futuristic picture of Domjan's completely solar powered boat. It's something that is important because it could be the next step in enhancing solar power. And is just interesting to see the technology adapt.

This is great journalism, and hits on every single aspect of timeliness, currency, prominence, proximity and conflict. It is relevant and timely, because flying is a phenomenon that affects thousands of Americans everyday. It invokes legitimate science authority released by the government and TSA. The issue of science technology and safety is such a pertinent one, and this article hit it on the head.

While the profile of Ms. Maclean is a poignant and moving one, the article doesn't live up to what it advertises. Besides the fact that there is a rise of Stanford class female technology involvement, not much science is provided to show what women may have a technological edge. If the science was there, this would have been very relevant and timely for many women who aspire to be in the tech world.

The story is well-done in terms of its unusual, and surprising content. The fact that it claims to redefine a whole phylum is something surprising, as well as exciting. However, it does not influence a large population of people economically or socially. The story does highlight who the importance pertains to, mainly scientists who are interested in tracing the roots that led to animal diversity.

The story has appeal, because mental disorders and how we define them, are very prevalent to many people in today's society. The timeliness seems to be a bit off, because the final product is still very much down the road, 18 months. The conflict is minimal. It seems that there is some dispute among scientists, but the emphasis doesn't invoke palpable tension.
