    Wow…..that was excellent! Good foresight and I wish that people would again value fact over fiction. Interesting ideas on how the internets barrage of information could potentially be more transparent. I’ve often wondered how so many people can believe in so many off the wall conspiracy theories. It still doesn’t make sense to me. Anyways…thanks for the video! Glad someone is looking into this!
