It appears that one of the last things Eric L. Ramsey did before he was shot and killed by police Thursday was to let his friends and family know on Facebook that he was about to die.
“Well folkes im about to get shot. Peace” Ramsey posted on the social network at 3:15 a.m. Jan. 17 using his mobile phone.
What this description doesn’t tell you is that, before this recent parolee got shot, he kidnapped and allegedly raped a woman, and when that woman successfully escaped to a nearby home, he tried setting the home on fire. Just a word of warning regarding this story. This FB message may be novel, but nothing else about this story is.
My nephew asked why I don’t have a Tumblr account, given my love of goofy pics. So here it is! To celebrate, I’ve paired with Tumblr and Humans of New York to help with their Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser. http://www.indiegogo.com/HONYTumblr
Considering his Facebook popularity, this is a major get for Tumblr. Glad to see he’s started off with a bang.
The shooter in Aurora, Colorado has been identified as one James Holmes—but not this James Holmes.
It’s worth appreciating someone who can respond so well to a mob of mis-informed people. That deserves respect.
You might want to uninstall the Facebook app: There are reports that Facebook’s iPhone app is infiltrating the address book that comes preinstalled on the iPhone, erasing contacts’ email addresses, and replacing them with their Facebook address (you know, the [name]@facebook.com email address that everyone’s given and nobody uses). This is bad enough, but to make matters worse, the @facebook.com addresses—which are supposed to redirect to users’ Facebook inboxes—apparently aren’t working all that great. The end result is that emails sent by many well-intentioned iPhone users are disappearing into the abyss, irretrievable by their intended recipients. Presumably, affected users are also losing the real email addresses of their friends. This is, to put it lightly, completely inexcusable, and it doesn’t take too much thinking to conjure up many disastrous scenarios that could result from it . source
What’s taking so long? According to Bloomberg TV, NASDAQ is having problems handling such a large IPO, causing delays in launching the stock. Zuck’s a programmer — perhaps they should put him on the case. EDIT: CNBC is reporting that the delay is causing NASDAQ’s stock to fall.
Attorney Mark O’Mara says the campaign was launched in an effort to discredit fake websites and profiles. Zimmerman, whose first website netted him over $200,000 in donations, now has a virtual presence on Twitter and Facebook, as well as a much more polished site. All three are being maintained by O’Mara who, in his first post online, said he understands “it is unusual for a legal defense to maintain a social media presence on behalf of a defendant, but we also acknowledge that this is a very unusual case.” source
Richard Blumenthal is on the case, guys.
This is big, folks. A government figure is doing something to help people.
