  • Coinbase banned Gab CEO Andrew Torba's personal account. (Reddit)

    Gab's corporate account was banned months ago.

    It's almost beginning to look like a trend.

  • It's been a quiet few days. None of the social media companies have managed to embarrass themselves in any major new ways, but the year is young.

    Now, if I covered the traditional media, things would be different. I'd have hundreds of news items a day.

    Which is why I don't, as a rule.

  • You can't fight City Hall. Not without a +2 sword and a bunch of healing potions, anyway. (The Keene Sentinel)
    Pho Keene Great is a French-Vietnamese eatery that plans to open March 1 at 11 Central Square, according to owner Isabelle Jolie. The space is adjacent to City Hall, in a publicly owned building.

    Jolie placed a "coming soon" sign in the window of the Central Square space with the business logo and name on Dec. 21. In a Facebook message, Jolie wrote that City Manager Elizabeth A. Dragon called her Monday morning and asked her to remove the sign, citing a contract violation as well as "a concern about the appropriateness of the 'intended play on words' on a city building."

    Pho, a Vietnamese soup, is pronounced fuh.

Video of the Day

Other Linus talks about the payment deplatforming furore and what his company is doing about it. Interesting take because (a) he's a free speech supporter, (b) he runs a company depending on online payments, and (c) he's building his own video/monetisation platform called Floatplane.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
