EDIT: why is it that after I read The Circle and poo-poo its themes that I start to see where those themes came from and the book is starting to make more sense?

When I need one I Google something that probably adds a lot of viruses to my computer, but they work.

Why is there a Twitter Government account?
Twitter seems to be getting very aggressive about this. They allegedly suspended James Woods's account for discouraging people to vote, and I just got a popup telling me to #BeAVoter even though that's never been a question for me.

I was thinking about The Circle just this morning, actually. It occurred to me that "going transparent" in the book feels sort of like what's happening with our information and the Cloud now. Or rather, where it's all leading.

Yes, message boards are social media. Antiquated social media.

Maybe they, I dunno, don't feel like showing the entire world their stuff? It's entirely possible they show it to family and friends and leave it at that.

Many people can't fathom the fact that there are people out there who don't live their life in search of likes, thumbs ups, hearts, retweets, etc. I liked the world a lot better when people were more cognizant of the fact that most of us don't really give a shit about people we don't know.
