After that, check out this episode o @podcastfunctionf where I talked to several of the earliest pioneers of the social web. We have 20 years of lessons from these platforms, if we just want to listen & learn from what’s come before. https://t.co/B26rAg6dtj
Please do read this history of LiveJournal, featuring interviews with many of the key people who made its pioneering invention of modern social networks possible. I was lucky enough to get a front row sesr to their brilliance. (And also how it fell apart.) https://t.co/kY98gP0K7c
(Apologies for the coarseness here, but if this kid isn’t ready to talk about the actual anti-choice agenda that he was promoting, maybe he’s not ready for the soft-focus spotlight on his PR team’s lies.)
Hey all, we closed out the first season of @podcastfunction with a really special episode: Recorded *live* at the Consumer Electronics show, @alexnklein joined me to talk about how we give our kids power over tech far beyond just "teaching kids to code". https://t.co/nXasRk4jWN

Fans lik @_heidiskinnere commemorated the moment with beautiful art. And though I couldn’t make it, I got a nice memory of an invitation, too. I hope we all get to hear (and see!) this show someday. It’s one of Prince’s greatest ever.
