TimeMachiner. Tech, culture, nostalgia. By Aaron Crocco
The Stream

πŸ‘‹πŸ» Hey there! Welcome to the Tuesday edition of The Stream here at TimeMachiner. I hope you are all doing well.

I found a very interesting segment from Last Week Tonight with John Oliver that goes deep into data collection. Funny enough, I'm tackling that topic head-on this Thursday on The Longform. Oliver's humor makes a lot of this heavy stuff entertaining but also informative. I can only hope to strive to convey a story as well as he and his team do. That said, be on the lookout on Thursday (Wednesday for Time Traveler members) for my take on this from a different angle.

Today's random factoid is: The chainsaw was originally created to aid in childbirth. 😳 Source

Thank you for giving me a little bit of space in your inbox. If you like what you read here, please pass it on to a friend. πŸ™

I'll see you on Thursday.

It’s no secret we all hate cable companies. They are deceitful, money-hungry monopolies that have no interest in serving their customers. So it’s no wonder that every time they try to get away with something, there is tons of blowback. Cue Jon Brodkin’s reporting about how a massive amount of…
Finish Him
One staple of the mid-nineties is Mortal Kombat. The arcade game took the world by storm due to its digitized fighters recorded from real actors. Oh, and there was violence galore. So it came as no surprise when a sequel came out soon thereafter. Mortal Kombat II was a phenomenon…
