Hate Crimes Against Humanity

You know the trolls, they are the men who post on your social threads trying to elicit a response. They want you to be angry. They want to outrage you. They want to go back and forth and back and forth with more and more intensity. The more rage they can inspire the bigger they […]

Saying what you MEME

When I was in the fray, I discouraged my IT staff from speaking in acronyms as it was a way to quickly alienate us as unapproachable enigmas.  Back then, words like ram, hard drive, memory, spam, gooey (GUI) meant only one thing and that huge heavy metal box with the even heavier monitor wasn’t part […]
