A wide ranging view of the world from the "leftern edge" of US politics. Yesterday on the Internet curates material from a not-so-secret email newsletter sent during the 2010 political campaign season primarily to progressive campaigners in Providence, RI. Readers around the world will be captivated by the author's unorthodox "takes" on news stories and websites that were more or sometimes less relevant to the campaigns. From the wonkiest research reports to the gubernatorial candidate that told President Obama to "shove it," Yesterday on the Internet will show you how much you missed in the summer of 2010. About John Speck Born in a working class New Jersey town, raised in a "snotty, white, Connecticut suburb" and brought to life on the streets of San Francisco, John Speck is a living contradiction; whatever he does, he most likely does the opposite. An inveterate punk rocker, he took a degree from Oberlin College Conservatory of Music. His interests circle the globe, are fiercely local but also include the entirety of the universe and all of history, especially the part we don't know about. His complete resume includes abject failure as a criminal and a rock star, average results in business and ringing success as a changer of people's minds. He describes himself variously as a "one-man socialist revolution," an "entrepreneur from the future," a "PowerPoint performance artist" and a "general-purpose genius." One press release claimed he has worked as "a gopher, a toady and an elf." Since landing in Providence, Rhode Island in the early 1990s, he worked in the box office of the local performing arts venue, a martial arts academy and a professional loudspeaker manufacturer before founding his own advertising concern. As partner in a local think tank, he advised state and local government agencies, colleges, non-profits and corporations. Much to their dismay. His politics and faith are likewise complicated. His personal life is none of your damn business.
