Kick-off the season with Scribd

Any given Sunday, the underdogs may come out on top, records may be broken, and new stars may start to shine out on the gridiron. Quarterbacks—as the leader of the offense, as the center of attention both on and off the field—are usually at the heart of these stories.

Our Dream Reading List: Bad Things That Happen on Boats

Though we're still enjoying the languid summer days, we know the new school year will soon be upon us. The impending start of school got a few of us around the Scribd office thinking and reflecting about our favorite classes (we're kinda dorky like that) and we asked ourselves: "If we could make our own classes, what would we put on the reading list?" We each took a turn crafting a reading list for a class we'd each love to teach, and we thought it would be fun to share those with y'all. We'll be posting one a week as the school year draws nigh. First up, our editorial coördinator, Justin.

The Man Who Gave Computers a Human Face

When we heard the rumors that Apple will not be launching the promised super-sized iPhone 6 this fall, we took a moment to reflect on the legacy of Steve Jobs, Apple's legendary founder.
