What's in your social media archive? I exported Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, LiveJournal, WordPress and LinkedIn to find out. (And even found an archive of Google Buzz)

Well, they did it. The FCC voted 3-2 on party lines to scrap Net Neutrality even though 83% of voters across the board want to keep it, even though scrapping it doesn’t help anyone except the giant cable & phone companies and those they decide to bless with their approval, even though it’s the only thing other than trust preventing those cable & phone companies from placing restrictions on how you use the internet and where you go…and you can surely use your imagination as to how that can be abused.

But you trust your cable company, right?

The fight moves to Congress now. They can still nullify the action through the Congressional Review Act – ironically, the same method they used earlier this year to wipe out privacy rules that the FCC put in place under the last administration.

Write Congress. Call your Senators. Call your Representative. Battle for the Net.

What stands out the most for me about the 2000 TV adaptation of Les Misérables are the unusual character choices and the strong presence of the Thénardier family as a real menace. I wanted to like it a lot more than I did, but there’s still enough there…

Is that help with flashing? Help responding to flashing? Help that flashes. Maybe I don’t want “flashing help.” And what am I supposed to know about what happens when it’s on its way? There’s a missing half sentence here! (Or maybe they just need to pick…

I don’t like Twitter threads. In most cases, if something takes more space than one or two tweets to say, it’s easier to read as an article. It’s especially bad with very long threads, and those that aren’t crafted to make each tweet a unit. When…

What's This Regulated Garbage?

I’m sure “regulated garbage” is a technical term, but it sounds more like a creative insult.

A fire is raging in the hills and canyons of Orange County. It’s nothing compared to the devastation in Northern California, where 160,000 acres have burned, killing 21 people and wiping out whole neighborhoods in Napa and Santa Rosa — but a dozen homes…
