We can only write so many stories here every day, but we read (or at least skim) through a few hundred every day. Here is a selection of some of the most interesting and thought-provoking stories we saw today.

Today’s stories include an in-depth look at the BitCoin economy, a story about how an African village is using tech to fight off a rape cult and more about Facebook’s forthcoming iPhone photo-sharing app.

As an experiment, we are using Pearltrees to curate these stories. Just click on a headline that sounds interesting to you and an overlay with the article will appear. Use the arrow buttons at the top of the screen to navigate between stories.
