This is why I'm double-jabbed and double-masked; Covid is a dice I never want to roll. Good writing from Ben Hayes.
Jokes aside - I know that schools, communities, whole countries rely on #WhatsApp to do their work, pay their bills, support each other etc. Whether or not they should get so dependent on #facebook infrastructure is one thing; whether or not you should keep billions of #Instagram cat videos on the same rails as millions of livelihoods is the more important question IMHO
Syd Barrett was in Pink Floyd. He was a genius. Then he got erratic, a nuisance, a disaster during performances, and started messing with other bandmates' lives. One day, before a gig, people were driving around town, picking band members up, and then someone was like, "Shall we go pick up Syd?" and others were like, "Let's just not bother," and that's all it took for Syd Barrett to stop being part of Pink Floyd.
What I'm saying is, #Facebook and #WhatsApp and #Instagram are Syd Barrett, and let's just not bother turning them back on again. Wouldn't that be lovely?
What's that saying they have about the definition of insanity? Anyway, #cycling up local hills MANY times finally paid off.
