The Verge, Year Two

We're taking a look back at our second year publishing, and sharing our favorite big stories from the last 12 months

It happened. We made it to (and through) our sophomore year. And it’s not as if that second year was an apocalypse where men (and women) had to fight other men (and women) to the death for the last remaining scraps of food, either: it’s been a pretty good year here at The Verge.

In fact, it’s been a spectacular year for us. We’ve expanded not just our team, but also the types of things we cover – we now have dedicated sections for topics as varied as culture, world news, and design. We also launched a giant, dedicated science section, headed up by editor Katie Drummond.

In the past year, we’ve expanded our videos to include a multitude of original series including Small Empires with Alexis Ohanian, which provides a never-before-seen look at rising New York City startups, and Top Shelf, a show that takes a deeper dive into the products and experiences that shape our lives.

We’ve also published hundreds of features and longform pieces that we’re incredibly proud of. Here's a look back at 20 (or so) of our favorites. Onward.
