In the real world, Facebook has already told us that hate speech is permitted as ‘counter-speech’ and it is quite happy to monetize this for its shareholders.

Sorry, Facebook can say what it likes about the Christchurch call but I have yet to see them back up any of their statements with real action. I don’t believe leopards change their spots. odt.co.nz/news/national/facebo

Bojo and : basically, he means ‘one country, two systems’. Where have I heard that before? This isn’t Churchillian, it’s a page out of China’s book. ft.com/content/723ac4ce-d973-1

RIP Sir Michael Edwardes. When you look back at his time at BL, he really took no shit. When he took the job, he was my age—all the more impressive. aronline.co.uk/people/michael-

Could be worth checking this setting on Google. I never turned it on, but it was on by default.

Genuinely surprised I had a YouTube account, considering I made it a point never to merge our old (pre-2006) account with . Even then I was concerned about .

First night in NZ, 43 years ago. Dad put me to bed. He was probably more tired than he let on. I was allowed to look at two Corgi Mercedes models that my grandmother gave me at the airport before I fell asleep. Lights out.

Nice cover by Ricky Hui of one of his brother Sam’s songs, from a 1992 TV special. youtube.com/watch?v=rhwLER_uX4

Sent my cousin a birthday note to her general work address.

If she was keeping her 50th a secret from her staff then oops.

At this time 43 years ago, my parents and I would have been at Sydney Airport awaiting a flight to Wellington.

Weather here was a lot shittier this day in 1976.

Didn’t get a chance to buy 月餅 last week. Might have to go to Yan’s and see what’s left. Though they never give me a whānau discount.

As far as replicants go, the one they have in 10 Downing Street isn’t a very advanced model.
