The officer who shot Charles Kinsey (who was helping an autistic man out of the middle of the street) has finally been charged with a crime, attempted manslaughter.
I've been following the case for about a year now, nice to see charges finally come down.
I just want to crawl under my desk.
last year of a PhD is rough

Read "I hate the internet" by Jarrett Kobek last night. A quick, highly stylized read with some great passages.
On the "Arab Spring":
"Social protests staged in countries thousands of miles away, on a different continent, were covered as advertisements for multinational corporations headquartered around and near San Francisco."
"I hate the internet" by Jarrett Kobek on Black Twitter:
"The users of Black Twitter were supplying White people with effortless access to a body of language and thought which could be harvested and transformed into content on websites owned by White people.
The managers of these websites were very interested in demonstrating a fluency with Black culture but had little-to-no interest in hiring the people who lived it."
My response to today's Spicer.
Here's the latest update to the silly map.
I still need to figuure out something for "here be gnus" and I'd like to add maybe a handful of important villages (instances with 500-999 users) beyond the witches and awoo (though actually it looks like witches.town should actually be a town now)
Anyway any suggestions for village instances would be appreciated.
