I was introduced to John Draper (Captain Crunch) a few years ago. He’s still around, though sad to say he seems to have got caught up in a few ‘problems’ that seem to be taking out so many men. But even before that, he didn’t seem to be that ‘clean’ anyway … adding prison sentences, fraud and forgery to the rap sheet.
I’m confused by an ecosystem in which you need to meet archiac standards for a passport, which is a vital piece of identification (for example, it is a big help to getting a car which massively improves standard of life) whilst any rich dickhead can get their hands on and use these advanced weapons with relative ease.
I was in a shopping mall recently and so used the rare occasion to wander into the Tesla store – mall’s being where Tesla keep their Auto Stores – rather than the perfectly acceptable equivalent in ‘Auto Row’ where all other car dealers operate.
Anyway – that is another rant. This is referencing the fact that the three core Tesla models were on show – and – a rough guesstimate that some 30 to 35 ‘people’ were in there. The volume of sound was – to borrow a phrase – all the way up yo 11.
I recently pinged a friend of mine from the 1999 crowd asking why he wasn’t on Micro.Blog … turns out he is … although he posts through RSS, so you can find him, but not engage. He was apparently on the platform back in the Kick Starter days – but found he wasn’t posting too much.
What do you feel are the benefits of the service, beside being “yet another blogging platform”? If you could help me understand the benefits, I might be more interested.
