Input is a tech, design, and style focused publication dedicated to bringing a new perspective on the most important, interesting, and vital stories of this moment.

Mic is a news and culture publication covering breaking news, politics, opinions, and analysis, distilling complex stories and presenting them in conversational, accessible, and punchy prose.
