Short article I wrote for a class assignment about this boingboing article: http://boingboing.net/2014/09/13/radical-librarianship-how-nin.html

Facebook buying Oculus kinda goes against the whole "underdog" PR thing they had going on but at the same time it's a pretty big marketing ploy for VR tech in general. There will be alternative hardware and we already know about Sony's plans...Google, what's up your sleeve?

TIL the original inspiration for #bittorrent  came from the need to move around digitized #gratefuldead  tapes across the internet more efficiently.
