After seeing Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn fired from his job for some eight-year-old (offensive) tweets, I wonder how wise it is to leave old jokes, reactions, and thoughts hanging around on the corporate web.

Did you know there’s a mystery novel where Obama and Biden fight crime together? 😆 Hope Never Dies 📚
I’m reading Jaron Lanier’s Ten Reasons for Deleting your Social Media Accounts Right Now and while I already feel informed on this topic, it’s a worthwhile read. 👍🏼 Witty and smart and surprisingly positive.
Another Libby App tip. When you scroll through pages, the bottom menu shows you where your highlights are. 👍🏼
