...Problem is the Monopoly does some things well & other things really badly. Like selling our data & not being transparent... I'm reminded of the Police protecting some whole murdering others - though that's probly not much of a comparison... Point is that it's complicated discussing it.

I was listening to Helen Shapiro's version of "Walk On By," and I think it's as great as Dionne's version. You reminded me, by playing Dionne. Where do you stand on this? @djsheilab

Wow this Selda Bağcan is taking this set to 11! (BTW interesting to hear thoughts on social media. Friends were shocked that I didn't sign up, as I read Mondo 2000 in early 90s and met my man and two close friends in Germany Spring 1996 via an email listserv. But I guess I had seen the pitfalls. . .still, it's hard to think of how hopeful many of us were in 1992 for instance. . .)
