10. It was down for maybe five minutes five hours ago.

Not world ending.

But the disdain from some is annoying as hell. Some of us use the platform and others to get the word out about what we write about and our projects to people that are interested.

It's not all a cesspool of shit. Most of it isn't, in fact.

13. Email is falling away fast.

A lot of people, especially for work, are migrating to slack for a host of reasons.

I've done the email thing through things like constant contact and others. It's not the same kind of interaction that you get through other social media platforms though. Each serves it's own purpose, though most people seem to think "well, if I think it sucks, it must not be useful for anyone."
