Finding This

Since I own my name as a domain and have had a blog for years I was a little puzzled when folks I used to work with had trouble locating me on the Internet. I don’t have a Facebook page but have had a LinkedIn account for years which is how some old friends found me.

And if they pass on the cost of regulation perhaps we should support attempts for your local community to build it’s own municipal system. The Internet should be in the commons anyway since it is a “highway.”
