Welcome to five ideas and one coffee. Each week, a combination of what's going on in the ongoing convergence of digital and social media, and how that impacts the way we communicate. Plus, something I learned about coffee this week. Let's get started!
Facebook figured out a person's unknown family connections, but then won't explain how it knows them. Citing privacy.
Is religion as bad for families and kids as we're led to believe? (Washington Post article from late 2015).
Netflix traffic drops 10% during the solar eclipse.
KFC is training cooks using virtual reality - learning how to make chicken from Colonel Sanders.

... that's it!
See you next week. Hit reply if you've learned something, or if you'd like to suggest an idea or a coffee.
