Social media got Donald Trump elected. Like him or not, our current president played the game and won, but you shouldn't get mad when you spew hate and spread misinformation and get fact-checked because every tweet is a decision and you have a choice to spread lies or truth. /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ Let's continue our discussion!

Let's go Apple and Google!! The two tech giants are teaming up again, this time to fight this nuisance coronavirus. We've shut down cities and more and now a technological solution is gearing up using contact tracing to help send alerts to those that have come in close contact with someone who tested positive for the virus. The solution utilizes Bluetooth low energy, but some worry about potential privacy concerns depending on who gets access to the data. /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\ Let's continue our discussion!

Our government and governments around the world should strive to have either a free or local form of internet available throughout the country for countless individuals for work, school and play. Instead we get promises of 5G, while everyone doesn't even have access to 4G or speedy broadband. But we're racing to something new, now?
