Facebook's Oversight Board may have accused the blue behemoth of abdicating responsibility for the decision to suspend Trump but I don't think allowing up to six months to review the decision and implement a proper sanction sets a very good example. The timescale should have been much narrower.

It was, however, good to see:

"The Board stressed that considerations of newsworthiness should not take priority when urgent action is needed to prevent significant harm."

Newsworthiness has been a definite cop out for Facebook and Twitter when enforcing policy.

I love that song! My dad used to have an Eddy Grant vinyl album, and that's where I first heard it, not far off 30 years ago! I've played it to my kids recently. :)

Soaking in the bath, trying to relax before bed, I find myself editing the book by highlighting and making notes in the Kindle app which I will apply to the raw text at some point.

Editing is going to be a multi-pass, multi-mode operation. Reading the text in the Kindle app is good for checking grammar and sentence structure but I will need to be on my Mac when I consider what else I can add, what other posts I can directly repurpose.

The text is organised in a logical fashion, I'm happy with that, but feels a bit front-heavy — some of the later chapters need to be fleshed out a little, more examples need to referenced to better demonstrate the ideas.
