I think we all deserve to relish this moment in late 2022 and come to grips with the fact that the open web never went away. It’s been here the whole time. We were just blind to the importance of preserving it and nurturing it at all costs.
We thought corporations could learn how to be good citizens on the web, and that the benefits of “centralized” content outweighed the risks. We were wrong.
And now a MASSIVE course correction is finally underway. Finally.
Jesus, this guy could not possibly be *more* "straight out of central casting." #mi5 #kingsman #harrypalmer http://www.cnn.com/2022/11/16/uk/mi5-chief-russia-spying-iran-china-threats-intl/index.html
So here's a thing.
This is completely irrelevant of how good the previous 1, 4, 10 reports have been.
So in Q2 you make 10x #profit. Shareholders are happy.

For the record, we eventually got this person set a bit straighter.

TIL that Philip Michael Thomas put out a pop/R&B/reggae album in 1985, which was roundly panned and flopped.
In listening now, it's really not at all that bad. It wouldn't be out of place in an R&B/soul/smooth jazz playlist. Perhaps the reason it was so vilified was because of the expectations that Thomas made for it: it was to be the G in his EGOT, a term he coined yet never came close to achieving. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4vFgpT3-FQ #mastomusic
