As I rebuild J’s Notes I’m picking up pieces of the old site and putting them back on here. It’s going to be a long process (11+ years of material, some years busier than others) but it’s kinda nice to go back and see what I used to talk about. It’ll probably get weirder the further back I go, but there are a few gems in here.

In 2009 it seems I had a lot to say about newspapers and the mainstream media (as one might call it)

The Washington Post is Afraid of Change (3/1/09)

Newspapers: Adapt Or Die (3/2/09)

Fair Use, Fair Game (4/13/09)

The Buzz Bin: Newspapers Are Like Department Stores (5/8/09)

Sensationalist Headlines and Chicken/Egg Arguments (9/21/09)

June 4, 2009 marked the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Protests which got me to go off with my limited knowledge of Chinese history.

In the wake of the BP oil spill in June, 2010 I went off on how the gamification of social media isn’t exactly the best public relations push in all cases.

And a post written in August, 2007 that for some reason never got posted until July, 2010 still rings somewhat true when talking about where the Right of Center political movement stands online, though we’ve certainly come a long way through the years.

Then there was my whole bit about how James O’Keefe was doing it wrong when he tried to “punk” a CNN anchor on a boat.

More to come as I rebuild.
