1. Is BuzzFeed really worth a billion dollars? Mark DeCambre reports for Quartz:
VentureBeat reports the seven-year-old viral media startup is raising some $200 million in its latest funding round, which puts the company on track to be one of the most highly valued new media properties in the industry.
If you can think of a story that better symbolizes America in 2014 than BuzzFeed becoming a billion-dollar startup, I'd like to see it.
