Mermaid, Chapter 30, Part 1.

Sorry about the long gap between Chapter 29 and this one. This Chapter was supposed to end the Tom and Chrissie story arc and it went very long. So we start off with Tom’s rather busy week as he shuts down the office and goes down to the Cape for a romantic Swim with Chrissie before the Olympics start.

Tech Stuff 94

This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another. It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity. It might relate to science large or small. It might be art for art’s sake. Or somebody just doing something funky. Because I think that technology is just the representation of human creativity and breaking boundaries. So I’m certainly not going to place boundaries here except that it won’t be the same old, same old. So almost no gadgets or yacking about the latest phone or whatever, unless of course it involves taking them apart or destroying them in unusual ways. Or putting them to work in imaginative ways that most people won’t even think of. So buckle up, it’s going to be a fun ride.

Sorry about the pause in these. There just didn’t seem to be enough worthy things in my Youtube channels or other places.

Sarah Hoyt, Your Commissars Are Control Freaks

Sarah Hoyt recently posted this in response to a friend commenting that the “moderators” of her secret group “Sarah’s Diner were control freaks. Sarah, I hate to tell you this, but Niki Kenyon, Amada Green, Kate Paulk and the other moderators in your group are control freaks and petty tyrants. How do I know? Because I was summarily thrown out of the group as a result of a fight that Niki and Kate started.

I wasn’t going to say anything about how Sarah and her friends treated me. they didn’t seem to care and their ostracization of me is probably something that doesn’t bother them that much. On the other hand, if Sarah wants to bring the topic up,  I think that people should see the people that are her moderators and judge for themselves. I wasn’t going to bring this up Sarah, but since you blocked me on Facebook, I’m no longer a member of the groups and I imagine that any comment I make on your blog will be deleted, I’m going to say my piece on mine.
