Y'know things that are all the rage? Blogs. Everyone has one; or at least had one before Facebook, Twitter and Google+ diluted the realtime pool.
Since I'm nu-old skool — and watching endless streams of people having a midlife crisis isn't Like-worthy — I figured why not make a blog?

Given the media furore these days, you’d think that aside from porn there was nothing but phishing, scams, viruses, trojans, worms and malware on the Interweb. Actually, there’s something far worse than these amateurish exploits.

It’s 2010 and the world looks set to be party to a Nazi-style People’s Court show trial of Julian Assange from WikiLeaks. Have things really changed in seventy years?
