Russia running out of cloud storage

quote [ This could spell serious trouble for the Russian people as most work relies on cloud storage. The loss of music and video streaming services also means that Russia could plummet into an internal blackout. If that happens, the state media can control the narrative, further gaslighting the people. ]

We depend on electricity, water, internet access and free cloud storage.

What The Hell Happened To Social Media?

quote [ Half-baked goods flying over social media, people trying to decipher the good from the bad in their own way. An information super-highway like social media and the internet is amazing, but it’ll be a disaster if the drivers can’t see what’s ahead.

Social media needs to take more responsibility for what they do, how they do it, and how well the users know what’s being done. ]

We have a motely collection of opinionated folk on this site. If you caught PBS Frontline last night, Alex Jones was there Jan 6. I never understood why a whole country would follow Hitler, but it's clear now,

Difference between Dems and Repubs on blame for assault of Capitol

quote [ A majority (55%) say that President Trump is “a great deal to blame” for the actions of those who charged the Capitol, with another 11% saying he is “somewhat to blame” … Biden is the biggest culprit in the eyes of Republicans, at 52%, compared to 28% for Donald Trump and 26% for the Congressional Republicans who opposed certification of the election results. ]

There are consistent results in a separate PBS NewsHour-Marist poll.
Is Trump to blame?
.................YES NO
Independents 62 35
Republicans....30 69
The same event can be seen so differently, just because of one’s political beliefs
