I wonder how many tech bloggers talk to people outside their demographic bubble. It was always bizarre reading articles about how the Mac was taking over, with the only basis being "because every laptop at my Silicon Valley coffee shop had an Apple logo." I wish I were making that up. Now it's the desktop, even though everyone I know still uses their desktop regularly. Most run Windows 7. Even if the desktop is truly on the way out, technology will find a way to loop back around to it, much as it has for the mainframe.

The most I did was dial up to the library's BBS to renew a book. Your story is much more interesting.

Congratulations on making that many good friends in a mere 40 trips around the sun. 40 more and you get a free sub.

The problems we're facing go beyond that one ruling. Organizations working for ordinary people have been under attack for decades. Citizens United wouldn't have been so bad if unions, social services, and other important institutions weren't being systematically dismantled by governments at all levels.
