A Change of Plans Part Two

Social media is an amazing thing. When the scroll came across my TV Sunday night about the impending announcement; I, like millions of others, immediately went online to see what was going on. Twitter and Facebook were both blowing up with the news an hour before the official announcement from the White House. The immediacy of the news and access to it are a marvel that is to be appreciated. But along with the news comes not only beautiful sentiments, but hate-filled diatribe, insensitive jokes, and political backlash....more

The Friendster Wake: Remembering the Late Social Media Site

Alas, poor Friendster, some of us weren't actually aware that you were still alive until we heard about your semi-demise. I'm really sorry about that, Friendster, because back in the old days when Facebook was still for those whippersnappers in college, Friendster was the social media site to connect with old friends and stalk ex-lovers.

I intended nothing political by or pre-supposing about it. I simply had the very human desire to see myself reflected out in the world. ...more

Imagine my amazed delight when I see this from tweet other than Goldie Hawn, the real live movie star (verified account) whom I've just loved since I was a kid. It's directed to ME, yes, ME of all people and I can hardly believe my eyes!!...more
