Even to the most objective person, Twitter has been nuts the last couple months. The platform has been in utter chaos since Elon Musk was forced to buy the social media company for $44 billion. From firing half the company to tweeting racist signals to giving space to conspiracy theories to allowing anyone to get […]
Things are changing by the hour in these times of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 otherwise known as COVID-19 and we’re learning a lot about ourselves, our healthcare system, how our government works
Laying in bed at my hotel after a long day doing touristy things in Yangon, the hotel started to sway.
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.
Another month, another Hollywood whitewashing of an Asian character. This month’s episode: Cameron Crowe’s ‘Aloha’.
It’s in style to hate on Iggy Izalea, so this post probably isn’t introducing anything that hasn’t already been said.

What I Found Out Today: Yesterday, a random Twitter user tweeted at me and asked me to tweet out “Yarrağimi Ye Fener.”
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.
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
