Late Capitalism with A Smile

There are some photos which has a weird effect on you. Half of you wants to write thousands of words about it but your other half is just speechless.

Rethinking How I Use Internet: 6

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Rethinking the Internet

It’s been a while since I wrote in this blogchain. And during this time, I relapsed quite a bit. Especially after all the events going around the world.
