Finding a Reason

Finding a Reason

Finding a reason for what I do is probably the most difficult thing for me.  Difficult because the reasons are not always something easily visible, or even things I think of beforehand.  Difficult because I often forget (or lose sight of) the reason I’m doing something.  I have a lot of things that I take on, different projects and ideas and hobbies I pursue.  Sometimes I get lost in the weeds and end up unable to do anything, sometimes I forget the reason I do anything.  Sometimes it all falls apart and I forget what’s important.

Fake News: I don’t know what’s Real Anymore

Fake News: I don’t know what’s Real Anymore

I was originally going to write a post about privacy in the digital age.  I was going to rant and rave about how “having nothing to hide” is not an excuse to ignore your privacy, but I think the topic of fake news is more important. Continue reading →

Arresting People for Speech

Arresting People for Speech

Should someone get arrested for something they say?  The short answer is: it depends.  If someone says they are going to commit an act of terrorism or a crime then yes, they probably should be arrested as a precaution.  Investigate them a little and make sure there is no actual credible threat.  That really is the only time that someone should be arrested for what they say.  The reason I bring this up is because recently another person in Canada was arrested for hate speech.
