The ONA Issues Tumblr is your platform to define and explore the pressing issues in digital media and get a better fix on how they impact your work. Here are the top five posts from last week.

  • An infographic from COLORLINES asserts that how we access the internet is creating a new digital divide.
  • The New York Times explores a world with seven billion inhabitants in the crowdsourced photo slideshow, “Picturing 7 million.”
  • Stanford offers free online classes in computer science and entrepreneurship.
  • To share an issue or join the conversation, submit your own post, reblog on your own Tumblr or comment on a post.
