Fans have achieved sentience.

Something I don't like is that the booing of Bettman when he hands out the Stanley Cup is used as the gauge for his popularity. It's really not. It's anecdotal at best.

I'd recommend reading Ryan Lambert's 'A Twitsmas Carol'. The genesis of this was Gord Miller's 4 twitter rules that came across as 'broadcasting' and not discussing, which is what social media is supposed to be about.

one passage in particular is relevant to the point I'm trying to make here.
