Mary Meeker's state of the Internet, #YesAllWomen, LinkedIn headline do's and don'ts, and how Twitter might breathe new social life into the Billboard charts. Do read on. Don't skip your week's dose of skim!

Mary Meeker's 2014 Internet Trends. It's that time of year! Mary Meeker's released her latest (and anticipated) report on where the Internet's headed. We suggest reviewing all 164 densely packed slides; but, if you can't, TechCrunch broke down the key insights. A few: Mobile now accounts for 25% of all Web use, app purchases comprise 68% of money made on mobile, and social networking is shifting from broadcasts to more selective sharing. You are forewarned. Also: Brush up on cyber security, because threats are rising.

(To be fair, all that effort was to create an entire campaign, not a single tweet.) The tweet was part of a promotion, #artofcheese, which—thanks to all this attention—is attracting more pungent entries than planned, whether deserved... or not.
