Facebook’s Innovations

Read the comic on Patreon.

Facebook recently unveiled some “new” things, such as smart glasses and virtual conference rooms. Which makes sense, since anybody old enough to remember Google Glass and Second Life fondly is old enough to be Facebook’s target demo.

Each time I log onto that garbage to post a cartoon, it’s a user-interface nightmare, not to mention the awful posts that get promoted to the top of the feed before I can toss some likes on my Mom’s posts before I log out.

Incredible Billionaire Adventures

The pandemic’s still going (and worsening), half the country’s on fire, and the other half’s alternating between floods and heat waves every other week. This as the backdrop for billionaires racing to recreate something the Soviets first accomplished (Sorry, Alan Shepard and John Glenn.) almost 60 years ago doesn’t say much for the free market’s ability to conquer space.

Facebook’s Oversight Orb

Facebook’s oversight board made some news this week for issuing a toothless decree about kicking a certain ex-president off their platform. A shame actual regulations don’t apply to them and they get to make up their own on the fly.

Zuckerberg, “Not true, but the algorithm’s gonna spew this into everyone’s feed!”

Zuckerberg, “You say ‘creepy;’ I say ‘HIGHLY TARGETED.'”
(panel 4 – The Zuckerberg Orb hovering over someone texting.)

Jerk-in-the-Ballot Box

Read the comic on Patreon.

Despite attempts to sabotage the Post Office, turnout for Massachusetts’ primary* on Tuesday was at an all-time high, thanks to early voting and cities and towns placing dropboxes to collect ballots that couldn’t be mailed in time. Naturally, voter suppression attempts will ramp up for the general, so register to vote, and get your ballots in and returned as early as possible.

*What a relief that Ed Markey won. Pelosi and the establishment wing of the Democrats would’ve taken a Kennedy win as a sign that no one to the left of Joe Manchin mattered and we’d be on our way to Austerity II and misery for years.

Facebook Does Damage Control

Facebook had another bad week. Every week is terrible on that godforsaken MySpace-that-won’t-die, but I mean from a PR standpoint.

They are a bad company and I wish people would go back to using Evite to plan events. Or mail invitations. Stamps are cheap, people!
