Happy Independence Day! Welcome home from Vegas if you went to Annual; happy long weekend (you earned it) if you didn’t! Catch up on the Twitter world this morning before you (hopefully) unplug and enjoy the fireworks.
You know about net neutrality, but have you heard about Facebook’s mood experiment? That, along with Annual, are some of the big issues of the week. Oh, and a SCOTUS kerfuffle. And a little event happening in Brazil. It was a bit much.
