Personal challenge for today: Give up on participating in discussions, both on- and offline, that just focus on (repeatedly and in strong language) pointing out problems but lack any ideas how to actually *improve* things. Yes we *know* there's a load of issues to be addressed, but *none* of them will change if we keep re-iterating what's wrong.

If you can help it, please don't pirate works of fiction. You can check out ebooks from the local library, and that pays the author per checkout.

I can understand textbooks. Fiction? Go to the library.

... favorite (Iron Maiden) album. One of my favorite tracks they did. Maybe favorite guitar solo on any IM album.

"[...]He pointed out that Twitter was basically a better RSS feed, since it could show you what people thought about an article in addition to the article itself. It allowed you to follow people and not just channels. Gillmor told his readers that it was time to let RSS recede into the background. [...]"

While I don't generally agree, I think reading this article is a great help for understanding use cases, motivations and success of platforms such as Twitter or Fb.
