#OpSpamHeadChop 2.0

April 2, 2012

2

It seems our enemies the Twitter spammers have (mostly) given up on their old tactics of using an army of spambots to @-direct people to one central account, which then directs people to a website. I guess the first iteration of #OpSpamHeadChop was too effective for their liking, and Twitter is wise to their games. […]

I’m not sure what you did on Halloween, but I celebrated by handing out a bunch of apples to some strangely enthusiastic children (what is WRONG with kids today?You’re supposed to throw the apples at the house!) and getting into a Twitter fight with Occupy Vancouver.

Where Did Community Go?

March 30, 2010

Uh, Foursquare? I got on the bus once and as I was putting my fare in the box the driver looked me in the eye and asked, “What’s your next-door neighbor’s name?” Well, I didn’t know what that was about, but I’ve been raised properly and part of my training included answering the questions of […]
