‘Stanford’ magazine’s most popular stories

As it marked its 40th year, Stanford magazine looked back at its most popular stories – or, at least, the most viewed on the web since going digital in 1996. The selections provide a glimpse into the online life of a magazine story: While some pieces made the list from years of topical online searches, others catapulted to the top quickly via social media. The greatest hits ranged from the tale of a rapper hounded for claiming to be a Stanford grad, to the rise and fall of the Condom Keychain King. You’ll find the “Top 10″ list  on the Stanford magazine website.
