A recent Medium post titled “The Web We Need to Save” went viral. Though I found it to be a little annoying at points, it had some insightful thoughts about how the web has changed in the last decade. Continue reading “Facebook has made the web a smaller place”

What I Found Out Today: Yesterday, a random Twitter user tweeted at me and asked me to tweet out “Yarrağimi Ye Fener.” Continue reading “What does “yarrağimi ye fener” mean?”
What I Found Out Today: I’ve been Twittering a lot lately, so I’m down with all my RTs, DMs, hashtags, FFs, and H/Ts…. but lately, I’ve run across a tweet that includes the “MT” abbreviation. Continue reading “What does ‘MT’ stand for on Twitter?”
Twitter can be a powerful social tool; anyone can share their feelings at any moment, tweet their opinion about any event, from anywhere.
Because Twitter works on that impulse, the reactions can also provide a window into the brain of the tweeter. And taking those related tweets together, one can also get a sense of the collective mindset. Continue reading “The 12 most infamous racist tweets, ‘Twitter attacks’ on Asians”
When it comes to motivations for racist violence, the case of Olympus Has Fallen and Red Dawn just may take the racist cake (NS;LX that came up on Google). It’s by far the most illogical and mind-boggling event.
I never thought a MOVIE would inspire nationalism to swell up so big and muscley (and apparently the brain to shrink in equal proportion), to the point that moviegoers would come out of the bargain matinee as if they naively soaked up propaganda from decades ago.
Guys and gals alike exited their local AMC after Olympus so pumped up by hate, that they wanted to punch, maim, and kill Asian people. Continue reading “Humanity Has Fallen: ‘Red Dawn,’ ‘Olympus’ inspire racist tweets”
When Asiana flight 214 crashed at San Francisco International Airport back in July, the ignorant Twitter monkeys came out to swipe at the low-hanging fruit.
Patting themselves on the back, they fed each other variations of “Asians can’t drive” jokes. Continue reading “Asian(a) can’t drive”
I reserve a special place in my heart for Asians that justify and encourage ignorance by demeaning and clowning themselves by playing up stereotypes. I have a similar cramped, dark and musty space for those that should know better.
Earlier this year, someone obtained a photo of Kate Gosselin pulling back the corner of her eyes in a way that ignorant assholes taunt Asians. Continue reading “Sorry Kate Gosselin, you can’t marry into racial empathy”
You know that footage of teenage girls at a boy band concert where they’re visibly shaking, holding up signs made of glitter, wearing homemade shirts, screaming ‘I love you’ at the top of their lungs, all the while on the verge of fainting from all the adrenaline?

> TL;DR: Follow your gut.
As I was browsing flights back home from Dreamforce, I saw that Frontier Airlines had a flight that was best suited to my preferred schedule (sleeping in).
I was hesitant to book it because I had a faint memory of a negative experience with Frontier that happened sometime between 8 months and 7 years ago. Something rubbed me the wrong way back then, but somehow (alcohol) my memory of that incident escaped me. So despite my gut (alcohol), I booked the Frontier flight.

I’ll be presenting at this year’s Dreamforce at a session called Marketing with Infographics for Fun and Profit.
Speaking alongside Dave Austin, Andrew Melchior and Chris Bennett, we’ll discuss the many facets of infographics. I’ll be covering the relationship between Infographics and SEO and I decided to break down the information of my 10 or so slides into blog posts. Here’s the first one…

Just surfing the internet and happened across Jeremy Lin’s and Chandler Parsons’ Twitter pages today. Some pretty clear cut evidence that the two are gay.
Here, on Chandler Parsons’ Twitter homepage is a pic of Chandy and Jeremy during their pregame karate ritual. Where’s Beardy, Chandy? Just cropped that third wheel out, huh?
Then, I wandered over to Jeremy’s Twitter, and on his Twitter homepage, he has the following quote about Chandler Parsons – “to know Him is to want to know Him more“
Wow guys, stop flaunting your homosexuality. Everyone (in the United States) knows that two dudes can’t be this close without being gay. Like, tone it down. You’re making gay guys all excited and all the idiots uncomfortable – that’s exactly the opposite of how America works.
