Not Sparky Herring!

Sad end to a guy I used to correspond with in the BBS days.

Mary Frances Herring, who was married to Mr. Herring for 28 years, said her late husband was something of a computer whiz in his early years who secured the @Tennessee Twitter handle shortly after Twitter came online. Internet archivist Jason Scott says Herring was the creator of the successful software products Sparkware and QWIKMail; Scott has 2 hours worth of interviews with Herring from 20 years ago here.

Domesday Book

Anyone know anything about this?

Domesday Book (/ˈduːmzdeɪ/) – the Middle English spelling of “Doomsday Book” – is a manuscript record of the “Great Survey” of much of England and parts of Wales completed in 1086 by order of William I, known as William the Conqueror. The manuscript was originally known by the Latin name Liber de Wintonia, meaning “Book of Winchester”, where it was originally kept in the royal treasury. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle states that in 1085 the king sent his agents to survey every shire in England, to list his holdings and dues owed to him.

Metooing John Derringer

How does a money losing, declining business get rid of its top expense (performer?)

Call in the #metoo brigade.

Derringer may have been an asshole but that’s probably what made him the best in his class.

Snowflakes can’t have it both ways.

Tyrants are interesting and that’s how they get to the top.

Derringer may be one of the few who can monetize a podcast – which is all he will be able to do after being fired.
