What is Tabs?

Every civilized weekday (i.e. Mon-Thu), Today in Tabs contains a lot of internet, compressed as tightly as I can get it. Links to whatever I read in the last day or so that I loved or hated, updates on the ongoing media fiasco of the moment, #newsbiz gossip, a bit of tech criticism, opaque jokes, running bits, and at least one musical number. Here’s the backstory, and we’ve been covered in NiemanLab, The Observer, and Politico. Was Tabs one of the newsletters that helped legitimize email newsletters in the early 2010s and thus led directly to the current newsletter boom and probably the very existence of Substack? That’s not really for me to say.
