  • @rustyk Rusty, I’d like you to meet @spiver … Susan, Rusty. :-) #
  • #BedFellows From AOL “AOL® Journals will permanently shut down on Oct. 31” to google “partnered with Blogger.com for a smooth transition” #
  • @xxdesmus I find myself using Twhirl i.e. active in my 1st monitor and then TwDeck maximized as sort of desktop in monitor #2. #
  • Take 2 @dahowlett: How da f$ck did IBM do that? http://hex.io/19f #
  • @dahowlett K … what have they been upto. K, virtualization. And they’re pitching green. A zowwie combination? #
  • @xxdesmus I’ve got DM backed to near zero on TwHirl, and low @s. On Deck, reverse, with AllTweets as low priority. Wallpaper. :-) #
  • IMNSHO virtualization is a slow building tsunami. At some point it (and cloud?) will be the.thing.to.do and players in place will clean up. #
  • J’adore le fait (l’accident?) d’etre bilingue. I’m listening to “Espace Musique” on the French service of CBC. “Radio Canada” (w/accent) #
  • @Pistachio That’s when truly fine tools prove themselves. And the pretenders fall by the wayside. After you head/desk any number of times. #
  • @mkrigsman Intriguing wee clip on Seesmic earlier. Young fellow about how he doesn’t use mainstream news, then seques to state of things. #
  • I was gonna try “At some times it’s especially hard to be Martian. Everybody is so deeply implicated.” But http://snurl.com/4764q < #
  • Economics is social: you busy yourself to death maxing your personal disposable income, causing havoc for others, and then *klik*. Bummer. #
  • FWIW nothingRPTnothing narrows a person’s humanity more than fixation on tech. You may be awesome clever. But that don’t mean sane. #
  • A note on fundamentals: the oligarchs’ share of GDP has risen for decades. Workin’folk have been increasingly screwed long before this. #
  • ReTw @Marti_L: Jon Stewart interviewing Michelle Obama #
  • Here’s the shit kicker: those who’ve profited by pimping planet earth are now positioned to profit from whatever new spin arises. #borg #
  • @ourfounder “When what is said is not what is meant […] then what should be done is left undone.” –Confucius (from memory) #
  • @rww Richard, struck me odd that “Mix” (para 2, in bold) isn’t a link. SNAFU? #
  • @ourfounder At one point in my life (SEP73; Allende / Pinochet) I realized I knew a lot. One big hill of beans. heh cheers #
  • When I opted for Span. in university I said, “Because of the growing Latino community”. Folk thot me nuts. > http://snurl.com/478lz < #
  • And yes, I speak Spanish with a French accent. The one thing I share with Jackie Kennedy. #
  • James Taylor in convo w/Tavis Smiley: “My 160 songs … often times it seems to me I’ve written 16 songs ten ways.” #
  • @danja “King’s adviser told him the rain would be poisoned with madness, so […] and in the end King drank the water.” Know that one? #
  • Now get this straight, sports fans: the oligarchs are suffering paper loss at the moment. But their years of profits are in hard assets. #
  • Or, to drop the diplomatic pretense, you’ve gotten by for years kissing right-wing ass. Now the mongers are pissed off. Shit is on the menu #
  • “A failure of markets”. Well of course. A buncha carpet baggers scrambling to cover their own ass distrusting other villains. #
  • @loiclemeur You missed our PM’s statement that we should make some good stock purchases. And he’s in a campaign. #
  • Talking with techies is like talking with crack-heads: so long as you flow with their fixation it’s almost like conversation … iff. #
  • @danja Alas the full version is far more than 140 … mebbe a full 420. *grin* Dunno etiology; usta be into Nasrudin stories. heh #
  • If you were to see all about you as mad … and tested that only to find it sound … what then? *Do notRPTnot drink the koolaid.* #
  • I think the last time I felt truly grounded was when we intercepted a Bear bomber heading for Labrador. Since then? Yuppie BS. #
  • Ok, membership test: who of us won’t crack up at the mention of “Mr. Puddles”. haaaaaaaaahaha #
  • Oh. According to Evangelicals, to use the phrase “dark times” is to be anti-Christian. I don’t think Christ would like Evangelicals. #
  • Now Ms. Obama showed herself another sophist: doesn’t want to ponder “the angry mob”, choosing “what’s happening on the ground”. Wellll? #
  • Stewart is perpetuating a myth. IMNSHO Cindy McCain has been conspicuous by her absence. #
  • Well, Michelle Obama was truly a disappointment. #
  • #Vista reminds me of Win95. Deeply polluted. Deeply, deeply wrong-headed. #
  • @dankeldsen Hi there – Oh, yes, for sure would. From your tweet I thought you were collecting feedback. All well? cheers #
  • Now Seesmic-powered, WashingtoPost “Wag the Blog” / @thefix: “Can McCain Win?” > http://snurl.com/47qxa #
  • ReTw @thomasknoll: For those of my followers who are politically charged, would love you to check out http://is.gd/3Mcn *proud moment* #
  • @DonRiep My “self pep.talk” for that: I’m laying the groundwork / clearing the decks for a period of flow and high productivity. *shrug* #
  • @rww Hilarious cartoon Richard, TU. BTW: Frederic writes in a nice voice. ReTw: Google Has a Sense of Humor > http://tinyurl.com/53qn75 < #
  • @mastermaq Web1.0 contra Web2.0: no link to the primary source. (I wanted to peek Dalhousie; went there years after UofA.) #
  • @itsthomas Bravo – In the happy days of DevEd (development education i.e. earlly 70s) data like that was grist for our mills. #
  • @Documentally @philcampbell @loudmouthman – ReTw @marshallk: http://reportingon.com/ it’s a special twitter for reporters. #
  • @jeffnolan: Stages of Valley Grief at http://tinyurl.com/3uu5s5 [apt!] #
  • Someone speaking my thoughts: Steven Hodson (not on twitter?!) – “When Half-Assed Is Good Enough” > http://snurl.com/47scn < #
  • @ StevenHodson By way of greets: “Error establishing a database connection” on http://www.winextra.com/ #
  • Poll: If I added you to my Lijit network by feeding them your email addy, you’d take that a) positively or neutral or b) not so great. #
  • @dankeldsen Ah yes, British self-medication. Do seek out a fine best bitter, as benchmark for when we visit Granite Brewery in Halifax. ;) #
  • ReTw @RonKJeffries: DualSearch from Jon Udell ROCKS http://tinyurl.com/4yj4fq [In my experience most things Udell rock.] #
  • @newmediajim FYI/FWIW – ReTw @marshallk: http://reportingon.com/ it’s a special twitter for journalists. #

  • ReTw @12stepbuddhist: Patreaeus supports Obama: http://washingtonindependent.com/11381/petraeus #
  • @TheFix Dylan + Joni Mitchell would do it for me. Oh, and mebbe Ravel. :-) #
  • Dunno / not sure about bio-rhytms, but from one day to the next my typos/minute shows remarkable deviation. #
  • @gapingvoid In my experience of those places, as though the entire situation came out of a vending machine. #
  • @adamostrow Watching a train wreck in excrutiatingly detailed slow-motion. #
  • @gpian Ola Giulio – I just now noticed your ReTweet. Greets! (followed) #
  • ReTw @bkdelong: Interesting…so the Dow appears to have been the highest ever…this DAY last year – 14,165 http://tinyurl.com/3l7s82 #
  • @trishussey Neat to be so multi-connected. (“Mother Corporation” was some of my happiest working experiences.) Next, ham-radio bridge? ;) #
  • @mathewi That’s funny. heh #
  • @uncleweed You gotta get yourself onto one of the national shows so we can hear you too! p.s. HappyVappy looks great. ;) #
  • /me grokking BG on @dankeldsen’s profile #
  • #Vista Picked up a cute little Logitech USB cam … simple, clean, cheap. This device is not supported by this OS. WTF … Win98 all over. #
  • @DonRiep C as a “read only language” so … could be worse? *ducks/covers/runs* #
  • @DonRiep *fixed* Remembering how C was considered a “write only language” … it could be worse? *still ducks/covers/runs* #
  • @guykawasaki RFE: the same, but with virtualization/ #
  • My zen cat in the warm fall sun. > http://snurl.com/482us < #
  • @ev @biz RFE: TwDeck treats ReTweets as Replies. I kinda like that idea. Include them in the @ stream, please. #
  • According to TwitScoop “Craig Groeschel” is #1 term. Kinda makes the first syllable of that site’s name terribly appropriate. #
  • @ScottMaentz Hi Scott. They sure do, ayup. My max was 3 cats and 2 dogs. And 2 horses. And 6 pigs. And a goat. And chickens. ;-) #
  • (bis) #Edmonton #music Tonight at Blue Chair > http://www.bluechair.ca/ < Trio Tarana > http://snurl.com/47ulv < (freeform world music?) #
  • Silicon Valley situation makes it as third item on News Hour. #
  • McCain asking about Obama’s “full relationship” with Ayers. So he’s as lynch-mob oriented as Palin. Good bye Republican Party! #
  • McCain and Palin stumping, “When will we know the truth?”. McCain/Palin TV ad, “We all know the truth.” PR adviser is Goebbels? #
  • If Uncle Sam had ever faced facts about Lebanon, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Iran, Chile &tc mebbe he’d open his eyes now. Mebbe. #
