Coroner says he was wacked out on some new drug called Sidewalk Tarts. Found him naked in some bushes yellin' "Why are my hands clay?!"
♲ @email@example.com: One final insult: SESTA-FOSTA was supposedly meant to curb sex trafficking, but INSTEAD, once the law was in place (surprise surprise), forcing sex work back onto the streets led to an *increase* in sex trafficking. In SF: A 170% INCREASE. www.dailydot.com/irl/increase-…

Kind of into #emoji candy 🍬 ☺️
@cwebber agreed. I think it's important to give non-technical users of digital and social media similes and metaphors to hang onto as they're introduced the more complex aspects, and abandon the metaphors when it breaks down.

So there's #oof, and then there's American oofing 🙄
@KitRedgrave I can't wait until my company opens a branch out there and I get to visit and set it up 😊
I also found the discussion of the heart defibrillator running proprietary software interesting. First there's the (understandably) felt injustice of having proprietary software embedded *inside* her body. Then there's the fact that when it malfunctioned, she couldn't do anything about it.
