It seems as if we have all landed in a bit of a dystopian death grip.

I've been quiet a lot online lately... So have many of my friends been as well. We've been swamped with ads, with mindless motivational video clips, with spam phone calls, with mediocre movies and television, with terrifying news headlines, and much more on top of a very post-pandemic existence. The...

Resisting the urge to text as a primary method of communication...

I once had a lot of friends that loved to communicate... On any given day I would be able to pop by a local coffee shop I frequented and sit for just a few minutes and find interesting daily conversations with people I knew and strangers even that would later become good friends over time. We'd ofte...

Reddit has "Karma" while Twitter and TikTok have likes, saves, and view counts. Spotify has "Monthly Listeners" prominently displayed on the profile of every musician on the platform... Metrics are increasingly being used to drive creators and contributors to sites to work harder...

Maybe it's just me, but It feels like I'm constantly being gaslit on the Internet...

I can recall a time used to wake up early in the morning before I start work with a spring in my step to log on and see what my friends and family were up to and to post what was important to me... I used to enjoy getting messages from people and seeing real comments on things I post in real time fr...

Even Beyoncé is not showing in Instagram search results...

If a major bank with 100 million customers erroneously overcharges each customer $1, they stand to make ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS based on the error... In our reality, this happens in many ways within the banking industry, it's not unusual for banks to erroneously charge their customer base even m...

Hello there small business owner and/or creative independent person. I know your pain...

Key steps in creating a toxic data harvesting social media cash cow

I took some time out to think about key aspects of how modern day information gathering operations operate now based on my experiences as a developer. The more I though about how modern day surveillance and information gathering could occur now, it became apparent to me how much Social Media has bec...

Don't quit your day job.

There is a huge cost to losing the most talented people in the workforce. Exit these days means that very talented people often lose track of their field and face a harder re-entry point with lower salary if they decide to return.

The art of doing nothing for things that do nothing for you

There is a special power in doing nothing as a protest when you experience injustice. Not complaining, not watching, not buying things, not worrying... Just protesting by just doing nothing. But important to note, the effect is often only felt properly when it is done en-masse, although individually...

Innocent lives are under constant threat, and there has been devastating results to actions taken by officials in the current state of war on-going in Ukraine. I would...
