Today marks the 51th anniversary of the assassination of #MartinLutherKingJr.

A brief history of the web:

1994: like .plan files, but with pictures

1999: an emerging marketplace

2004: socialization! Commerce! Industry! Collaboration!

2009: democratization of content production and distribution!

2014: everything is now about immediacy of updates and a firehose of information

2019: like .plan files, but with pictures

Current gender: Non-practicing male.

I was raised culturally male, but never really practiced, y'know? Still, my parents were not super happy when I decided to convert.

NAACP returns Facebook donation, calls for boycott

Interesting: The NAACP has returned a donation from Facebook and called for a daylong boycott of the social network Tuesday following revelations of how its platform was used to manipulate black voters in the 2016 presidential election.

They want a boycott of fb and twit Tues, Dec. 18th.


I'd like to do my part, but I boycott 24/7/365 so I doubt they'd notice my absent absence :-)
