staying abreast of the hackers
We are all rubbing the crusties out of our eyes, reengaging with democracy and the mess created while we were asleep.

Cyber attacks and the lack of transparency about them were hugely undermining to what corporatists have left of our democracy in this last election. The lack of urgency by the FBI and the unwillingness to publicly notify soon-to-be voters by Obama about Russians hacking the DNC left information that would directly influence us and as well as the rate it was dispersed at in the wrong hands.
