Smacking Vultures [Loser Society]

If there’s no cooler, there’s no community. The only thing that can constrain evil is a greater evil.

I’ve been binge-watching this series that’s basically a remake of “Lord of the Flies“, where one of their themes is how order is created out of chaos.

Someone evil rises up and a lot of the kids start following him because they want to be a a part of the power structure.

The evil kid is kept in check by a collaboration between a smart kid and a cool kid who uses his power for good.. Not meaning superpower, meaning that he assesses what he feels is the right thing to do and then makes strides to make that happen.

When they make these stories, they practically invariably make the good guy a 100% good guy.

This isn’t actually possible because the only thing that can check and constrain evil is a higher level of evil. Continue reading “Smacking Vultures [Loser Society]”

CNN Presents “Black In America: Silicon Valley”

CNN aired “Black In America: Silicon Valley” last night. It was actually more interesting than I thought it would be. I would have done the show differently, but I’m me and CNN’s producers aren’t.

Disclosure: I’ll watch *ANYTHING* with Angela Benton in it! >:P~~~

Internet Blog-Influenced News Cycles

According to klout.com/BillCammack, I’m a “Broadcaster”.. To them, that means “You broadcast great content that spreads like wildfire. You are an essential information source in your industry. You have a large and diverse audience that values your content.”

I mention that because I’m glad they changed my category from “Pundit”. Pundits get on my last nerve. 😀

I didn’t have anything against pundits before a few months ago when I started following the Republican debates to see whether they were going to field a viable team to potentially defeat President Obama in 2012.

The problem I have with them now isn’t really their fault, but they have to deal with a new development in television broadcasting which I call “Internet Blog-Influenced News Cycles”. Continue reading “Internet Blog-Influenced News Cycles”

It would take me longer than it’s worth to figure out a coherent storyline for this article, so I’m just going to write about my experience with and thoughts about this situation.

I heard about it several days ago. Some politician was alleged to have sent a picture of tha dilznick to some chick on Twitter.

*yawn* Continue reading “Weiner Fesses Up”

Deleting People From Facebook

Bill CammackBeing connected with people on social networks like Facebook, Twitter & Foursquare has taken on a new importance in people’s lives in 2010 AD.

It used to be a frivolous decision whether to add someone as a “friend” or not. It used to be similarly unimportant whether you deleted someone after becoming friends with them. Those days are over. 🙂 Friending and unfriending people is serious business now, as people’s IRL lives spill over into their online presence and “art” begins to imitate life… Continue reading “Deleting People From Facebook”
