I admit I had not previously been paying much attention to the link feeds gathered (by Mr. Elliott?) on the left side of our blog. But this one in particular really was a powerful story: Inside the mind of the anonymous online poster. If you get the chance, please read it--it is a bit long, but hey, it's the weekend, and you have time, right? 100% great editorial reporting by the Boston Globe, in MHO, and very much addresses some minor things that Len Downie, Milt Coleman, and Sarah Glassen have discussed about this brave new world we live in.
I think the article also directly addressed the things I tried to get at in my Reynolds Institute application essay (in French, essaier, root word for our English 'essay', means "to try or attempt"). To post the text of my essay, I have made my own blog, so as not to clutter up this one--it gets a little hard to follow when 8 people a day are posting here): Of Trolls and Tweets. It is similarly a little long, but those of you that I've talked to here, maybe you'll give it a chance?
