Adventures in South Carolina

As a history buff I’m always cautious about doom-saying and lamenting the supposed “decay”…

The Thorny Issue of Reader-Writer Online Interaction

The third Google image if you search “flamewars” is a Warhammer 40,000 one. Coincidence? The internet can sometimes be stereotyped as “not a very nice place.” There is a belief that, whatever the qualities of individuals, there is a miserly and cruel streak that runs through the collective hive consciousness of…
