The Internet Apologizes
Thoughts while reading Noah Kulwin's Selectall piece in New York Magazine on April 13, 2018. Cover art by Joe Darrow. Why did everything go wrong? 1. Start with hippie intentions. 2. Mix in capitalism on steroids. 3. Arrival of Wall Streeters didn't help. 4. High price for free. 5. Everything was designed to be addictive. 6. At first, it works--almost too well. 7. No one from Silicon Valley was held accountable. 8. Social networks became toxic. 9. They invaded our privacy. 10. Then came 2016. 11. Employees are starting to revolt. 12. To fix it, we need a new business model. 13. Need some tough regulation. 14. Maybe nothing will change. 15. Unless some new people are in charge.

Talking about microphones
Diving into tech to support voices in education #ictedu while using the iRig Pre HD and several different microphones we carry around to produce tearaway audio moments in classrooms. I start by using a Beyerdynamic MCE 86 S II shotgun mic connected to the iRig Pre HD in the cover art and discovered it generates line noise. Then six minutes into the recording, I revert to my favourite recording device (a Zoom H6 field recorder) and use its SGH-6 shotgun module to explain more about the Shure MV5 and Shure MV51. I prefer the more rugged MV51 because it packs and travels easier than the MV5.

Let's Keep Sharing
I've always been interested in slow feeds and in the drip feed of music, ambient recording, and personal audio moments. Since the late 90s, I've shared music, poetry, audible books, and the sound track of my life. I've also taken down things when requested. But I've never been threatened with a DMCA take down or had my ISP pull the plug on my URL.
