    Truth Above All Else

     Holmes Sets Back Women In Tech Something really has to get me going for me to post something. Most of the time it’s driven by joy, excitement or curiosity but this time it’s anger. Yes anger.

    Fixing Media: New Unit Of Analysis

    As discussed ever since the advent of the Internet, media has changed. While newspapers and magazines have seen the full brunt of the shift, television has been a casualty as well.

    The Inescapable Now

    It’s looking more and more like a William Gibson or Neal Stephenson novel out there.
