OK everyone, thanks for all the support this week, we finally got things up and running here. Been a crazy week for me — good crazy, as always — but I’m going to try, repeat, try, to post one more item today before heading out for interviews.
Either way, I’ll be back next week with some more Hack List 2017 and some exciting investigations and the occasional fair and balanced opinion pieces this site is famous for. And next Friday with a new playlist, a tradition already dating back a week.
But for now, here’s a Playlist. Share, mock, critique, whatever.
