Earlier today, I posted a blog entry called Is Burning Man Anti Social-Media?. The post points to what I see as a growing conflict between Burning Man’s “freedom of expression” policies and the expanding social media culture around the event.

After something like six years, and over 10,000 blog posts, Zennie62.com has officially moved from Blogger to WordPress. This doesn’t mean we’re quitting Google’s Blogger – there are over 90 blogs still there – but Zennie62.com now goes to Zennie62blog.com, rather than Zennie2005.blogspot.com.

Rupert Murdoch, News Of The World, and Phil Bronstein’s Disappointing Take

As you may know, News Corporation boss Rupert Murdoch elected to shut down the 168-year-old News Of The World, the UK’s famous tabloid paper, because of allegations of alleged police bribery and phone hacking, for starters (looks like there’s more news coming).
