Look Who I Met a Comic-Con @ChrisGorham

Imagine #Google suspending EU services in response to #antitrust charges. Case closed, because #PokemonGO went away. 
Yesterday, Europe's Competition Commission expanded its legal assault against Alphabet and major subsidiary Google. Four monopolies are under fire: AdSense, Android, search, and shopping services. Trustbusters allege that Google uses anticompetitive tactics to protect its market dominance, which share ranges from 80 percent to 90 percent in each category. Behind the charges is a hoidy-toity attitude typical of overly-protectionist EU regulators. ...

#FrakThat podcast ep. 39 is grimly amusing. Randall Kennedy and I discuss the political and societal carnage ravaging the global landscape, starting with the increasingly farcical 2016 U.S. Presidential campaign — one day after the FBI recommends no criminal charges be pressed against Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton. Joe calls her and presumptive Republican challenger Donald Trump “villains”, and he wonders who their comic book counterparts should be.

Other topics include: Murder in Fiji, and unpleasingly gift-wrapped heads washing ashore; KFC’s Colonel Sanders playing multiple superheroes in a new DC Comics series; U.S. House member Nancy Pelosi’s spending slaughter while shopping retailer Shoe Candy; the 30-person brawl inside a New York Walmart; and the Fourth of July Nathan Hot Dogs massacre.

May the rumors be true. #Apple #Tidal
As a Tidal subscriber. I welcome Apple acquisition—asssuming lossless tracks are made available through the fruit-logo company's music services. Not that anyone should seriously believe the rumors. But one can hope.

The day after UK voters set off the economic and political equivalents of a dirty bomb, Randall Kennedy and I discuss the EU referendum -- as fallout spreads across the globe.

What does #Brexit foreshadow for the U.S. election and possible Trump presidency? Did God, or aliens, bring torrential rains to London, keeping "Remain" voters from the polls? Based on Google searches post-results, did many "Leave" proponents really understand what they cast their ballots for?

Other topics include cat litter boxes in space, gastrointestinal attachments for supermodels, and the great Mauritius shipwreck.

Expanding the #antitrust case to four #Google monopolies is big trouble. #AdSense #EuropeanCommission
Alphabet Admirals Sergey Brin and Larry Page had better tell Captain Sundar Pichai to close the watertight doors—lest the search and advertising ship sink in the North Sea, where depths reach 700 meters (2,300). Brrrr. Are the lawyers handing out life preservers? Will paralegals man the water pumps?

Why not the United States is obvious: Google has paid off the United States. Currently-employed Googlers work at the Pentagon. The former FTC commissioner wrote Google propaganda. 282 members of Congress have received contributions from Google. Hillary has a strong relationship with an Alphabet CEO, and so this isn't going to change when the Obama administration leaves office.

In the annuals of American journalism, few moments are more seminal and status-quo shattering than Diamond Reynold’s live report of a police shooting on July 6. She deserves the Pulitzer Prize. 
Give Diamond Reynolds the Pulitzer Prize. Her Facebook Live broadcast following Philando Castile's shooting is news reporting in the public interest.

For the USA's 240th birthday, Randall Kennedy and I discuss independence -- declaring it from #Apple and #Hollywood, among others. Also: White Settlement, Texas; Donald Trump's deleted tweet; Jack Daniels' recipe revelation; goat slaughter in Riverside; pedophiles in Hollywood; and sex worker discounts during the Summer Olympics. And more!

The Problem with post-Brexit UK isn't Leave but Remain #Brexit

The government of David Cameron and the British intelligentsia will ruin the United Kingdom if they stay the course of their post-Brexit rhetoric. The tone is abysmal. Catastrophic—like a family’s patriarch has unexpectedly died and the women left behind…

+Aditya Kadambi I hope you're right about the outcome, and thanks for accolade. The problem I see isn't the UK without the EU but Scotland and/or Northern Ireland separating from England and Wales. I hope they don't.

every life is epic
Introduction
I am an award-winning journalist, writer, and real Maniac, being born and raised in Caribou, Maine. But I currently live with my immediate family far from home, in San Diego, Calif.


I am an experienced analyst, consultant, editor, journalist, and storyteller. My communication skills are broader than just the written word. I have appeared on CNBC, Fox News, MSNBC, NPR, PBS, and other radio or TV networks or programs discussing technology and its related cultural and business impact.

During the second decade of the Millennium, my main worklife focus is producing original content, which could make you the star. I contend that "every life is epic", and through storytelling show by how much.

I am available for editing, writing, or speaking gigs and can be reached by Gmail, or you can private Circle or Hangout. Be warned, if you want to hire me: My investigative storytelling style is provocative. I want people to think about things from different viewpoints.

They say you can judge someone by their playlist or what they read. I subscribes to:

  • Economist, Nature, and Rolling Stone on iPad
  • New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post on web and digital devices 
  • Entertainment Weekly, Mother JonesNew Yorker, and Vanity Fair in print, on web, and digital devices

But often the most valuable content comes not from paid professionals but people posting to social networks (hehe, Google+), Medium, and blogs.
Bragging rights
Got my driver's license at 25, because I biked (or walked) everywhere.
