The Walls are Coming Down

It was the site of a planned demolition of a building that had recently been set on fire. the sight was so jarring that it made me think about all that I had been writing recently about “tearing down the walls” of the social networks that are holding user data captive. I made a mental note to come back later, when the light would be better, to take a picture of the scene.

She’s a bright young woman, and very natural in front of the camera. As I was enjoying the interview, I realized where it was filmed — right across the corner from the demolition site!
