+Jeff Jarvis my son is in 9th grade and wants to be a journalist.  I've given him advice that I've picked up from you via your posts and TWIG.  

Are there any links you can give me that would help him prepare for a career in journalism, or advice in preparing for college?  Any help would appreciated.  Thank you.

Thank you +Jeff Jarvis , and sorry for not responding sooner.  Somehow I missed the notification.  

It's great to see my son start to have passion for something, and I hope he is part of "reinvention".

It gets worse and worse.  Especially as the father of 3 girls, I am very aware of the misogyny rampant in our society...particularly online or in the "geek world".  This is not the first (nor the last I am afraid) case of (parent's-basement-dwelling) troll making horrible threats against a woman online.  

The recent abuse of Zelda Williams, after her father's suicide, was the most high profile ( http://www.buzzfeed.com/catesevilla/zelda-williams-leaves-social-media-after-receiving-abuse-fol ) but definitely not the first or last.

We need to change.  The concerning part is that, usually, the boys who perpetrate this behavior are between 12 and 22.  That doesn't bode well for our future.  We're supposed to get smarter, more compassionate, and more tolerant as our society matures.
Earlier this week, feminist critic Anita Sarkeesian posted the latest in a series of crowdfunded videos called Tropes vs. Women, devoted to aggregating and analyzing games that portray women as...

+Mike Elgan I just finished listening to your discussion on TWIG 263 regarding filtering/censorship/etc that Twitter and Facebook have been doing.

A question I had was that do you think this type of cleansing will result into the masses returning to the open web?

Introduction
My day job is as Director of Product Development at Control Point Corporation.  I also have a company, XGDFalcon LLC, small event and portrait photography, producing video, and designing and developing websites (including SusanOlsen.net and FakeJan.com), and currently working on 3 iOS and 2 Android Apps.

I constantly challenge myself to learn new things and have new experiences.

I love to meet those I admire and respect.  I've met several of them ( Leo Laporte, Geri Reischl, Penn Jillette, Debbie Gibson, Susan Olsen to name a few).  

I believe life is about experiences.  I don't desire to live long, but to live good.
