A ceasefire? Or a pause in operations? We unpack the agreement between the Kurds and Turkey, brokered by Vice President Mike Pence.
Here’s how an online joke about aliens spun out of control:
A joke Facebook event created in June entitled “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” suggests that a group of people break into the Area 51 military facility in Nevada to try and find aliens that are supposedly stored within.
Hundreds of thousands of people mark themselves down as attending (that number has now swelled to 2.1 million). The Air Force gets nervous and issues a warning.
Small towns around the base begin to worry.
A spin-off festival called “Alienstock” is planned in part by a local businessperson.
The event is canceled over safety concerns.
The “storming” is supposed to occur this Friday. We sit down to discuss online culture, how it affects reality and who is held accountable when things get out of control.
