Post Note: “Some ideas need more than 140 characters: why I started blogging”

In Post Notes, I add some additional thoughts or context to a blog post I’ve previously written. The original post can be found here.

  • If anyone I wrote about in the article is reading this: Hello! I would love to have a dialogue about what happened to make you block me. Please get in contact!

  • Recently, The Atlantic published a fascinating article about the effects of smartphones on minors. If you ignore the clickbait title, it’s worth a read.
  • Although it didn’t make the final draft of the article, I do not think that social media/the internet are entirely to blame for political polarization. The deregulation of communication companies, abolishing the Fairness Doctrine, and the advent of cables news channels and right-wing talk radio were major factors as well.
