  • When I was young I had a coupla jobs that called for long periods of real toil. Tech ditch-digging. Now … I resent even hours of that. #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Brown lab (“liver”? is what we call springers) and what, some sorta Bichon Frise? How’d I score? #
  • @mndoci Is what got me working on “participatory deliberation” as a system … “discourse ethics” … drill down through the rhetoric. #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Griffon?! Ooh-woo, thanks … new one for me. And wudda typed Chesapeake but it was too long. (No, really, not kidding!!) #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Don’t get me wrong, I luv mutts. But my springer was CKC; he taught himself how to flush … in the blood, literally. #
  • PBS “Nixon” > http://snurl.com/4c5m6 < While he was falling, this hippie kid was in uniform (CDN) training to interdict the Soviets. Alas. #
  • @rjmoriarty Twitter really isn’t fire hose. More like a drinking fountain that runs 24/7. And sometimes it serves beer! Even scotch!! #
  • @davedelaney I set up a blog just to archive them viz http://www.bentrem.sycks.net/blog/ (unreasonably heavy WP template. *shrug*) #
  • @Mlsif How can folk not vote for someone who relates to sweet potato pie. I mean … really. #
  • Note to #Palin: In his last days Tricky Dick Nixon was greeted with warmth by the select crowds with which he surrounded himself. *hubris* #
  • Who do more harm, the Nixons of the world? or those who profess aspirational values while setting up false lights to draw us onto the rocks. #
  • New house rules: anybody who thinks they can earn their salt by shuffling papers / speculation / profiteering will be de-Followed. #
  • @ourfounder Dang, I’z busted! But seriously, I think McCain would have it otherwise, had he *Zounds! Gadzooks!* more spine/autonomy. #
  • ReTw @lisarokusek: Justified fear is how we will win this election; our faith in goodness, truth […] is why we must. http://is.gd/41fj #
  • @mndoci *grin* My Vajrayana lineage would probably include in “compassion” a healthy skepticism; judge? Sure. Just don’t condemn! huh huh #
  • @robbyrussell If OpenSource was more rational tech_docs types like me wouldn’t be asked/expected to work/live like poor cousins. #
  • Found “OpenOffice 3.0 / fears of development stagnation” in History from 3 hrs ago. Cheers! > http://snurl.com/4c8dm [arstechnica_com] #
  • “OpenOffice 2.4 is up to date.” Oh. Ok. Is that a GoodThing? Shall I DL and install OO3.0 in parallel? *sigh* #
  • “When people who don’t believe in rationality get into positions of power they make bad decisions.” –Bill Maher > http://snurl.com/4c9m8 < #
  • @mndoci Ah-lah, if bhakti.yoga could be introduced w/o cult aspects … from my sphere I suggest bodhicitta. HeyHo, and so it goes. #
  • How truly lame is this society? 6 drink-related crashes in this small city last night. The focus? Catch/prosecute. Psychopaths’ picnic. #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere I got springer spaniel cuz they’re “all o’that” but mostly cuz they’re not large but unbreakable i.e. 5 kids in the house. #
  • @cameronreilly “Free as in beer” is a suckers’ play. #
  • @adamclyde Individuals who can’t handle WikiPedia disputes should be kept well away from the levers of actual power. #
  • @MossyBlog You sure you want to play with the maelstrom? Time w/WarHammer might be more productive. Or at least more relaxing. ;-) #
  • Wow, these A-list types! Not just snotty pricks; downright creepy. Shrieking “vandalism” about an arguable bit of rhetoric 18 months ago. #
  • @MossyBlog Me, on the other hand: when cursor hovers over WoW icon I find myself thinking, “For what?” … go pet cat/pick up magazine. :) #
  • @philcrissman “context-free grammars”?! You building a compiler from scratch? (PoMo / discourse ethics spoken here. *grin*) #
  • What neo-realists ignore: karma (or even just causality) doesn’t observe the niceties of in-group deniability. #
  • @canadrian Cheers! I’ve been working on my pale ale for years. c{}~ #
  • My Buddhist Resources page got quadruple hits last week. Fun to watch it; first published in ’96 … a solid performer. #
  • Why have folk started posting links as http://www.mysitename.com instead of with http:// and live? Odd sort of atavism. #
  • @michaelsigler Nice feather in your cap; congrats. #
  • Uh-oh … just remembered a dream I had … a neat applet for Air. Yikes, yet another language / environment to grapple with! #
  • ReTw @mathewi: Looking at: “DoodleBuzz:Typographic News Explorer” > http://tinyurl.com/62dmor < [awesome clehvur!] #
  • Creepy … my 4Gig thumb drive is reporting a total of 1.8Gig capacity. I didn’t lose any files but *shudder*I’m thinking it’s not safe. #
  • #Vista Dear M$ – What are you thinking? When I Cut files and Paste them elsewhere, why leave empty dirs behind? Are you f’n nutz? #
  • #Vista Dear M$ – I hate having to write you like this. When I select a disk, Tools, and Defrag, why must I de-select all the other disks?! #
  • #Vista Dear M$ – Don’t worry about the files on my thumb drive. I plugged it into my Win98SE box and fixed it. Oh, BTW: you really suck. #
  • @cote Interesting … descriptions / tags / categorization. Not “comment” and yet more than just noise. #
  • @ChrisSaad WayBack captured it? #
  • @cameronreilly Please know I’m not denegrating your use case. Quite the opposite. But funding for those projects came from somewhere. #
  • @brianshaler SendTo really should be / needs to be Ajaxified. #
  • @motownmutt Funny (or not) how that hits at gut level. Kinda elemental. #
  • @cameronreilly Now I never thought either of us meant that. But point stands: for “free as in beer”, creators should defer income? #
  • @cameronreilly Ok. “May choose to” work on OS on the side, relying on convetional income stream. As a hobby. Options? 0 w/o funding source. #
  • @cameronreilly Sure … like google. Or Netscape giving the code away. OS exclusively by big companies. That’s attractive? #
  • OpenSource … it’s not about free as in beer. It’s not about generosity and philanthropy. It’s meant to optimize for participation. IMNSHO #
  • @rhh Most folk know that “the nail that sticks up gets hammered”, however they might evade the point. Dis-incentives are very real. #
  • “a JSON-speaking DB layer “, part of the NYTimes API project > http://code.nytimes.com/projects/dbslayer < #
  • @veen Had a chance to move there years ago, a big theatre project … very nearly did … very attractive. #CounterFactualHistory #
