The concept is something of a paradox: If Circa truly finds a better way to present other companies’ information, then the source links, which are present under each “atom” of the story, will cease to be useful, becoming little more than polite nods. If this form of the story really is better, why would you ever leave? It doesn’t help that Circa’s current design literally buries its sources, hiding them behind an ever-present button at the top of the screen. You could read an entire, 20-part brief and never see a source link if you didn’t want to. It’s aggregation without compromise.
