  • The time is ripe for a web-savvy style guide, and Business Insider reports that Yahoo would like to replace your dusty Strunk and White's The Elements of Style with a manual covering everything from semicolons to SEO
  • Men with Pens offers budding freelancers tips for snagging clients
  • Scrabble takes over the blogs!  The Gazette smells a PR ploy in recent game change rumors, while New York Magazine announces a scrambled version of the game set to hit the UK
