  • Amaaaazing the amount of crappy code and brain-damaged design is around … everyone jostling to join the mutual-admiration society. twits #
  • @Carnage4Life IMNSHO it got dumped on with all the frustration and un-addressed angst arising out of W3C HTMLWG and Style. #
  • @marshallk I’m looking at a Mahalo "news" page. Listed in "Activists" is this gem: "Angelina Jolie Sex Quotes". Brain-damaged neo-jingoism. #
  • What was it I said about "scrambling to join the mutual admiration society"? Yaaa … that. Otherwise: http://ThinkProgress.com #
  • For geeks who are "stupid and selfish" … and handy: > http://store.makezine.com/ < #

  • Shameless, my writing. > http://gnodal.livejournal.com/ < I can see why 97.35% of people ignore me. #
  • @waynesutton Mahalo is NewNetscape after a big fix of the hug.drug … so I guess NS is augering in big time. (Terribly mixed metaphor!) #
  • RWW rulez; first a great post on "Killer App" > http://snipurl.com/1x4ti < then link to a new (for me) blog > http://snipurl.co#
  • @dahowlett Shout at photomatt ask him (not to troubleshoot!) if there are reported bugs. (Newest version, yes?) #
  • !MIL-SPEC … after pages of registration you’re supposed to notice a single "click to validate" at the base of Para14. *D’uh!!* #
  • Notice how the Mahalo avatars all look like 8 year olds? #
  • @dahowlett Was it server-related? Intermittent bugs are a royal pain to fault-find/isolate/identify. #
  • Over and over and over again, software that was designed by coders and implemented by VC geeks … 80% done w/20% effort. F’n hell. #
  • Thrasymachus called Socrates a stumbling old drunk. SF kidz treat me that way. Ok, I’m no Socrates, but > http://snipurl.com/1x4yc < #
  • @ourfounder Golly, you respect thoughtful action … but read my blog and don’t "follow". Doesn’t that make me schlemiel? #
  • *Fingers on your buzzers* In http://snipurl.com/1x4yc I wrote "60% of global IT VC is within 20 miles of SF" … T/F #
  • @guykawasaki Most recent studies show folk who create "formal learning resources" use informal in their own stuff. Lots are self-taught! #

  • We’re all safe from flare-up in Middle East … Dubya has figured out that "swiss cheese just isn’t gonna work". Disaster averted. Or not. #
  • Now tell me this: why, in the name of anything holy, would the kidz build a WebBrowser into NewsGator/FeedDemon? We don’t have browsers?! #
  • @newmediajim Canadian doc on TV … UNPROFOR Serbia/Croatia 1993 … what a hell-hole mission … ethnic cleansing. Madak pocket. #
  • Now tell me this: why, in the name of anything holy, would the kidz build a WebBrowser into NewsGator/FeedDemon? We don’t have browsers?! #
  • Are people /totally /insane//?! In FeedDemon I can’t even mark a feed UnRead … typically brain-damaged … lazy design. Back-slapping yaa #
  • NewsGator? The engine works … but you’ve got an Edsel. Being palsey-walsey and buddy-buddy means nobody’s told you truth. *uninstalled* #
  • @marshallk Tell me you’re kidding. It should be Right click / Open in Browser. And no UnRead? Blow off a post by /reading it/?! C’mon …. #

  • @jesatiu Stop sniping at me. I suggested you get a blog; you imagined the rest … nothing about your age/typing. Just that you’re a dick. #
  • "Cognitive schema" works by filtering by salience and valence; BluePill means "what I like/dislike is important" full stop. DailyMe rules. #
  • How to impress a media-type covering breaking news in Jerusalem: "j/k… f/n w/u cuz i CAN! ;)" *Not!* Brain-damage, anyone? *head/desk* #
  • Thrasymachus called Socrates a stumbling old drunk. SF kidz treat me that way. Ok, I’m no Socrates, but > http://snipurl.com/1x4yc < #
  • @elsua Last data I saw Twitter had 98% uptime. Or maybe 92%. But still … #

  • @acarvin Q/NPR: how to have strong stories w/o polarizing audience. Or if that’s a concern. #

  • Q: what WYSIWYG CSS/HTML editor? NVU/KompoZer? Eclipse? NS3Composer? *snort* #
