Articles on KADs

This is a necessarily incomplete but growing bibliography of non-book articles on KADs in the press and elsewhere online (as distinct from academic journals and personal blogs). There is a very wide range of viewpoints and voices here; I'm aiming here to present resources, not to edit them, and inclusion doesn't amount to agreement—nor, for that matter, disagreement. The bibliography is in top-to-bottom reverse chronological order. I'm going to try to update this regularly, and welcome having my attention drawn to noteworthy stories that I might have overlooked. If you are looking for a place to start—and it is a lot of material—I recommend Steve Haruch's September 2014 piece for NPR's Code Switch blog and Maggie Jones's January 2015 article for NYT Magazine.
