Montana

September 11, 2018 - 18:22 -- Admin

I've been learning a lot about Montana, mostly how purdy it is.For those of you who are following the End of the World Project at Patreon, Montana is my Boulder, Colorado.

I had a busy week on the Twitterz and Facebuck this last week, mosty due to thinking out loud about the hotel industry's scammy preauthorisation charges. Hundreds of mentions, thousands of RTs and lots of traffic to a coulmn I wrote for Fairfax.

One troll of course, because it wouldn't be the internet without them, but I tend to get off lightly. After all I'm a white, middle class male.

Still, a lotta traffic. A lot of talk. A lot of stuff happening.
