Robin Williams: 1951-2014

Remembering Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall, the USPS' long-overdue rebrand, smartphones charged by sound and more in our weekly look at the web

This week the world tragically lost one of popular culture’s most beloved icons, actor and comedian Robin Williams. An outpour of articles have emerged, offering insights on his inimitable legacy and recent mental health, as well as a few esoteric thought pieces on suicide awareness. However, it’s TIME Magazine’s commemorative issue that is perhaps the most comprehensive collection of accounts on the life of the outwardly happy Academy Award winner. Featuring pieces from Alan Alda, Louis Black and the real-life Patch Adams, the issue provides a broad perspective on Williams and his amazing impact on the world, both in life and now, death.
