    Angry Internet Warriors: Who are they?

    Interesting video from The Guardian.

    (Have not watched it all .. will do when I have a good 15-20 mins of screen time...)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JyTW4Rg2tE

    Also worth reading Nick Denton's "Good Internet will rise up again" piece...

    Denton is lecturing people on "good Internet"?Gawker was trash and was a trailblazer of fake news, partisan, identity politics, gotcha, hit-piece journalism garbage. The net is a little bit better now that it is gone.
