The ongoing saga of me being harassed on Twitter. Don’t feed the trolls, but don’t let them get away with this shit, either!
I’m working on an ‘It gets better’ video/blog post, but right now I thought I’d take a second to bring up my concerns with how Twitter handles, or rather doesn’t handle, harassment and bullying cases. While I understand they don’t want to have to be the police, there’s an aspect of running a community at […]
I preface this with the acknowledgment that, indeed, some of what I blog is ill-thought out drabble. I don’t exhaustively research what I’m saying every time I say it. But that’s why this is a Blog, and not news website. Even my ‘news’ site that I run isn’t a newspaper, and doesn’t pretend to be. […]

I had to answer ‘How do I keep track of it all without having to log into 3 places?’ That came with Lifestream, a WordPress plugin. […]
One of the holy grails of my blogging life is the simplicity of linking up all those stupid social sites into one, simple, place where I can log in, tell folks what I’m doing, and everyone from Facebook to MySpace to Twitter gets an update. Also, that one place will collect all my various replies […]
One of the things about the net that I love and hate is the development of freedom of expression. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a socialist at heart, and I love the fact that people can say what they want, how the want, in the USA. Well, mostly. Illegality being what it is. But I […]
