The storming of the Capitol, Jan 6, 2021

 Davidnprogress, a fellow I've worked with for years, has a good take on the events of 6-JAN here in the US when tourists, insurrectionists, and the curious all ended up inside the nations Capitol during the ceremonial counting of the Electoral College votes to confirm Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States:

This week was yet another historic moment for our country as a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building in what in essence was an attempted coup to keep the electoral college from certifying Biden as President. Five people died during the incident and there were many injuries to the police. There was even a Confederate flag brought into the house chambers and there were KKK flags at the demonstration.

Roll Call! Share your blog in the comments.

 Corporate Social Media is getting weird.  Communication and connection is still critical - even more so in this socially distanced locked down age.  Blogs started  the 'social media' thing before there was a Facebook or Youtube.  But for communication and connection to happen, folks have to share with others - so I'm encouraging you to share your blog in the comments; some I'll add to my blog roll over there on the right; others, I'll add to my Feedly RSS reader (

The idea is to stay connected through distributed websites, not all under a central corporate control.  Yeah, this blog is hosted by Google, I know. Back in the way back days it was the only system that could process Sprint Picture Mail correctly and allow me to make mobile blog posts.  They were Mobile First before Mobile was even a thought in most platforms mind. 

Looking forward to the responses!
