A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

Have bad handwriting? The US Postal Service has your back. "The U.S. Postal Service has a massive 78,000-square-foot branch . . . that deciphers illegible addresses." [Smithsonian Magazine]

Streaming TV isn't just a new way to watch. It's a new genre. "Watching a streaming series is even more like reading a book — you receive it as a seamless whole, you set your own schedule — but it’s also like video gaming. Binge-watching is immersive. It’s user-directed . . . Each episode becomes a level to unlock." [The New York Times]

New Chrome app helps women stop saying "just" and "sorry" in emails. "The Just Not Sorry extension . . . underlines self-demeaning phrases like “I’m no expert” and qualifying words like “actually” in red in Gmail like they’re spelling errors." [Slate]

Celebrity event planner Beth Helmstetter has launched The Good Beginning, an online registry for donating to charitable causes throughout the world.
