I have never been at the center of a Tweet Storm unless of course, we are referring to squawks on the beach. Maybe this is a good metaphor for that.
Speaking of which, I just heard the in-depth interview of Jack Dorsey on Sam Harris's podcast. (https://samharris.org/podcasts/148-jack-dorsey/) The guy is pretty zen, way more than I expected. Long story short, Twitter is a work in progress and, from what I can glean, Jack has his heart in the right place.
I'm not much of a Twitter guy, I just tweet my photos, but that's probably not the ideal use case. I do like to follow certain people, but I'm not really into participating in public discourse. I'm more contemplative and keep my thoughts to myself. I'm not sure if that's a good thing; but let just say, it is what it is.
After the long red tide, it's nice to see the beaches back to normal. The fish have returned, and fishers are back at it.
A lot of research has gone into determining the causes of the toxic algae bloom. Historically, this has occurred for decades if not centuries. It's possible that man is aggravating it, and it's likely there are other causes, such as colonies of it endemic to the deep in the gulf.
Nevertheless, it wreaks havoc on coastal communities in Florida. It's gone for now, and we hope it stays away. But after the last eighteen months, everyone is a little on edge. Most importantly, it gives us a new appreciation for the years when we don't have it.
This newly constructed building is a wedding venue at Robinson Preserve. If anyone objects to the union, they fall through a trap door and come out the bottom.
When not used for weddings, it's available for corporate events or education. It's called the NEST which stands for Nature, Exploration, Science and, Technology. It's one of the more compelling structures to come along recently, so naturally, I had to take a photo.
The preserve borders on the Gulf of Mexico so it's built up high on legs to avoid a tidal surge. I've seen a lot more of this type of construction lately. With the new summer storm season starting shortly, it's probably a wise idea.
