Not Breaking, but Interesting News

20 March 2015

    I love everything about this. All of our stories are important and each is interesting for different reasons. As much as I like to deny it, I’m a people person at heart. Sure, I isolate myself most of the time, but there comes a point when I must connect with someone else, see things from a different perspective, hear things with renewed enthusiasm and do things I might not otherwise have tried. People are great for that sort of thing and the best part about them are their stories. You can get a sense of someone’s entire world with one tale, so a collection of interviews and stories might just produce a brand new universe. Wouldn’t that be grand?


Violence just needs to stop being the answer. I understand it’s been the way things are done from the beginning, but it is time we evolve past this. (Which is not to say that you shouldn’t know how to defend yourself. Know that, because you’ll be the only one in your corner more often than you wan to admit to yourself.)

  I gotta be honest, I didn’t see that one coming. I still wonder if this woman was actually mentally ill or if her views simply didn’t align with those in the Koran. Either way, I hope her family finds the justice they deserve. What happened to this woman is disgusting and only a mad group of diseased souls could do something so horrific.

I can’t wait to see how this turns out. If it was her idea to focus on wearable tech, HTC is in for one hell of a turnaround.

  GTF away from me Sawyer. I can see right past your passive, plastic eyes and I don't like what I'm lookin’ at.

  The answer is no, you guys. Don’t just open the door for the hackers, play hard to get.
