How does it feel to be Gregrolled, Canada?

An article on the CBC Toronto website picked up on the ‪#‎illridewithyou‬ campaign that began in Sydney after the Lindt cafe shootings. It’s a heartwarming article, full of care and concern. And for some reason I can’t determine, it’s leading people to a piece I wrote shortly after the siege.
As you might recall, I wasn’t so hot on the concept.

They’re a cheap, easy way to send a message. The message usually being ‘I care more than you.’

Hashtags are the bumper stickers of the internet.
