Watching Ronald Lacey play a Chinese man on The New Avengers.

This is a big surprise, being an Online Logistics customer. Dan and Jake were as honest as the day is long when it came to my deal in 2015–16, and I have recommended them to others. nzherald.co.nz/business/news/a

Spent some time upgrading the streaming Mac mini today. Using my week-ends for fun stuff, what a concept!

In my blog: Cambridge Analytica is merely Facebook’s ‘smaller, less ambitious sibling’ dlvr.it/QPYXyT

Seriously people who hate me, I don’t even know you. You know who I am. Let that sink in that I live rent free in your mind.

Zuckerberg’s testimony showed that he didn’t give a damn about user privacy, and the news about what Facebook was really doing with personal data was incredibly damning,* yet Facebook closed above $160.


I cannot express my shame that the country in which I live and to which I pay taxes is bombing Syria.


James Comey has carefully cultivated a holier-than-thou persona. And you shouldn't fall for it. https://t.co/Xe04aZTKNG

If we’re outraged over what Cambridge Analytica did with 87 million users, shouldn’t we be more outraged over what does with 2,000 million? (Read on, it gets worse.)


Actor from the 1980s: ‘I was so honoured to appear in the film version. I grew up reading the novels as a kid.’

Facebook bragged it could influence elections, but removed the pages about it last month. theintercept.com/2018/03/14/fa

Il n'y a pas de place à prendre sur Facebook, il n'y a qu'à déserter. (pensée suite à une réflexion que j'ai trouvée dépassée hier, en assistant à ce qui se disait lors de la présence de @fbon à Nantes).
J'ai été con, j'aurais soudain dû le crier !

Saw a quotation, ‘Steve Bannon has been known to speak hyperbolically.’ I knew it was some kind of bollocks, I just didn’t know the specific type.

Watching Claude Akins as a villain in Mission: Impossible. Opening scene has two hoods steal drugs in a tractor-trailer. Brings a whole new meaning to 'Do it like Pruitt.'
