I've mentioned this before but I'll say it again: if you want some wholesome / nostalgic internet times, check out Wiby, the "Search Engine for the Classic Web". It's based on (moderated) user submissions of old school websites. Use #WibyFinds to post the good stuff you come across!!!
I just found Zack's Snake Page, which is actually just a giant image with hot zones you can click to go to other images???
I'm on Snopes today talking about the "DC blackout" trending topic across several social network sites. It seemed to me to be a fairly complex operation spreading disinformation on all sides of the topic, entirely meant to sow discord. I even interviewed some of the people who got swept up in it for my research.
Just learned that George Floyd was a part of the legendary group Screwed Up Click back in the 90s. Billboard’s got a good summary of his career and links to several of his songs. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/hip-hop/9391100/george-floyd-screwed-up-click-rapper

Jessica and I have also donated to the Hogan’s Alley Society, a local historical society which is documenting the history of Black Vancouverites. I’ve been ashamed how little I’ve known about this part of my own city’s history. Please consider donating too. https://www.hogansalleysociety.org

Europeans, hop off saying “this could never happen in your countries”. America is the child of y’alls rhetoric and knowledge. None of y’all have repaid back the debts to the Caribbean or Africa - y’all STILL benefiting off that shit. Pay that back and then we’ll talk.
