Hold On To Your Butts – Episode 6 – Trayvon Martin Trial / Corporate Warfare


Welcome to episode 6! In section one, it’s all about the internet’s response to the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman trial, ranging from the very serious (racism) to the somewhat light-hearted (Skype hijinks). Next, companies are waging wars daily to become the go-to place for internet services. We’ve got two stories about such wars. And finally, our internet things of the “week,” including a lengthy rant about Kid Nation from myself. As always, please email us with feedback or leave it below! (CAUTION: there are some swears in this.)

(EDIT (7/13/2013, 10:18pm): The court in the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman case just announced that the jury has found Mr. Zimmerman not guilty of an sort of homicide offense. This does not change anything we said in the episode, but it was obviously recorded before this announcement.)
