Snark: to annoy or irritate

"Snark" has been in English language dictionaries since at least 1906, and Lewis Carroll used the word to describe a mythological animal in his poem, The Hunting of the Snark (1874). Most recently, the word has come to characterize snappish, sarcastic, or mean-spirited comments or actions directed at those who annoy or irritate us.

At first, this blog was just going be a place to gripe, but because it's more satisfying to take action than it is to merely complain, now most of the posts/reposts suggest ways to get involved in solving problems.

Internet Blackout

Wikipedia and other sites are participating in today's internet blackout, which is designed to protest the SOPA and PIPA bills currently in Congress.


YouTube is operating, so to understand what's behind the decision to black out today, watch this AP video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TIzrcELsiI
