Disruptions: Fliers Must Turn Off Devices, but It’s Not Clear Why

Disruptions: Fliers Must Turn Off Devices, but It’s Not Clear Why. The policy requiring travelers to turn off electronic devices during takeoff and landing has zero supporting data. On the Frontier flight I took last night to DC, their $6/flight DirectTV remained on the entire time. Hypocritical.

I’m back on Facebook and Twitter

Yes, you can call me a hypocrite. Yes, I’m still a firm believer in portable data and identity. Pragmatism won out over idealism.

One, an increasing number of sites now use Facebook and/or Twitter exclusively for their user authentication. In this context, having a corporate-controlled ID is unfortunately better than having no ID. Two, at work I’ve had to ask other people to do tasks I should be doing and I’m done feeling weird about that.

This little ol’ weblog is still my preferred publishing residence and that won’t change anytime soon.
