Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

Welcome to what I hope will be an interesting and challenging experience. One of the things I miss from the early days of the internet are the old style discussion groups where spirited discussion, disagreement and exchange of ideas would take place under the watchful eyes of moderators. There was an effort to allow vibrant exchange while discouraging and even punishing vitriolic and threatening language. Today most of what passes for political discourse takes place on social media which essentially means either Facebook or Twitter. The result has been millions of people yelling at each other but precious few actually saying anything.

Maybe its time to pull back from the social media behemoths and retreat into smaller communities such as this blog. Then perhaps we can have some actual discussion on the news an other events and concerns of the day. Wouldn’t it be nice to post in a venue NOT controlled by Zuckerberg or @jack? Once again, welcome to my new blog and I sincerely hope to hear from you soon.
