On the one hand, they recognize the economic opportunities that digital communication and transformation can create. On the other, they worry about the potential impact of such rapid and uncontrolled conversations, especially in countries where dissenting views are not always openly tolerated. This tension plays out in a number of ways across the region. One recent example; Clubhouse, Silicon Valley's app du jour found itself recently banned in Oman which said it didn't have a license to operate in the country – while there are concerns that the social audio platform may soon be blocked in other countries, potentially stifling online debate and discussion in the region. The region has had a historically problematic relationship with many VoIP and messenger services, many of which have been banned on either a temporary of permanent basis.

Jack Dorsey has in the past called Twitter his "life's work." On Monday, the cofounder and newly named permanent CEO of Twitter made it clear that there's much left to do in order to ensure his life's work doesn't go to waste. "While we've had extraordinary impact on the world to date and built a strong business, we are nowhere near done or satisfied," Dorsey said on a conference call with analysts after announcing his appointment as permanent CEO. Don't take it personally, 300 million Twitter users, but you're not enough — even if you are helping the company rake in more than $1 billion in annual revenue.

THIS is the spooky moment a submarine-shaped cloud is claimed to have appeared off the coast of Indonesia just days after a wreckage was discovered on the sea bed near Bali. The bizarre formation is said to have been seen four days after an Indonesian Navy submarine that sank - killing all 53 crew members - was found split into three pieces on the ocean floor on April 25. Resident Arik Andrawan claimed he saw the clouds after he visited the beach with a friend to catch a view of the sunrise in the popular island destination. Arik said he was watching the sky turn from dark to red-orange when he noticed the strange shape of the cloud overhead. "I did not realise it right away," he said. "I was recording the sun rising when I noticed a cloud looking like a submarine. "I then remembered about the terrible news." On April 21, a submarine carrying 53 Indonesia Navy crew members sank while doing a live torpedo training exercise off the coast of Bali. Navy Chief of … [Read more...] about Spooky moment ‘Submarine-shaped’ cloud appears off coast of Indonesia days after 53 died in doomed sub
Danney Williams, a.k.a. “Danney Williams-Clinton.” Photo: Danney Williams-Clinton/Facebook On the morning of April 19, Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson posed on the steps of the statehouse in Little Rock, a big grin spread across his face. He was greeting guests who had come out to kick off “Save AR Students,” a campaign sponsored by the Arkansas Department of Human Services to discourage drug abuse in “collegiate communities.” The state’s attorney general, the surgeon general, the drug director, and other officials were joined in the sunshine by a few dozen students and activists, none of whom stuck out, except for one: Danney Williams, a man known among right-wing conspiracy theorists as “the Clinton Kid.” Williams claims to be the illegitimate son of Hutchinson’s most famous predecessor, Bill Clinton . On Facebook — where he is verified under the name Danney Williams-Clinton and his avatar is an image of his face juxtaposed with a vintage snap of the former president, in … [Read more...] about Whatever Happened to ‘the Clinton Kid’?
