Why do I have a blog?  I’m not a writer.  I’m horrible at writing.  I’m a regular, whatever that means, guy from the Columbus, Ohio area.  I grew up in the 80s when it was easy to tell the good guys from the bad guys.  I signed up for Twitter back when it was called a micro-blogging service, but I never really knew what to do with it.  So I mostly forgot about Twitter until the election cycle started and noticed it took center stage in messaging.  I became particularly interested in it after the election because sometimes Twitter was a better news source than traditional outlets.

Often, my day job involves troubleshooting, so I love to take in data and make connections to solve problems.  That’s how I saw the run up to 2016 and the shit storm that followed, a big problem to troubleshoot.  That’s what I continue to do in my spare time, and I’ll try to document some of that here.
