  • @judell The vision that traditionallly in-formed our foreign policy > http://www.acdi-cida.gc.ca < NB: UN peace-keeping was Pearson’s idea. #
  • @judell Hours ago @cote raised an interesting Q about what counts as “comment” in FriendFeed > http://twitter.com/cote/statuses/959501544 < #
  • @stephencostigan Welcome to TwitterVille! #sharepoint #
  • @cameronreilly That’s 1 case. Hardly exhausts the whole topic. You’re saying you want OS only from big entities? C’mon … #
  • @chrisbrogan Different folk engage the same activity for diff reasons … heart of “discourse ethics”. If it matters to him, then it matters #
  • @cameronreilly Yes, 1 case. And what about when a project is outside google/Sun/IBM? Back to my initial Q: from where $$$? #
  • @Mobasoft If you google “participatory deliberation” I think you’ll see my opinion on “conversation”. :-) #
  • @thattallguy To him democracy is supposed to be something you get from a vending machine. Klik; plop; fizz. #
  • #Vista Dear M$ – Could you possibly have placed shared application data more cryptically? You piss me off no end. #
  • GD Microsoft. I search for FF profiles … /User/BenTremblay/etc etc … look there, nothing to be found. GD M$ … GD M$, GD M$ #
  • GD Vista. Use the search box; get 8 results. Click 1, the box disappears, REDO from Start. M$ coders are pathetic cretins. #
  • Know what M$ code is? It’s a test … a check to see how completely / comprehensively you’re a clone. #borg. This should take 5 seconds!!!! #
  • ScreenGrab of Vista’s insanity. > http://bentrem.sycks.net/images/appdata.jpg < Explorer hides AppData from me. Totally ignorant. #
  • Ok … OpenOffice 3.0 is ready for download. And FF3.1. OO2.4 checks, says “Up to date”. FF3 checks and says, “No update available”. Right. #
  • @AshleyAngell Just what I did, then quicker than lickity-split made a Desktop ShortCut … sihlyness rampant. #
  • @xxdesmus I’m sure it has something to do with UAC being off … it was fine before … logical madness. Now, why does WinAmp disappear? ;) #
  • #DiffStrokes When I saw from backstage (SigInt) how we overthrew the democratically elected gov’t in Chile I quit. My “mates” didn’t. #
  • Firefox is already running, but not responding. Vista is /shit/. #
  • @factoryjoe W/respect, I wudda gone -a for left, -b for right, and -c for center. *shrug* Different strokes. But thanks for this. #
  • RT @TechCrunch: Jive Software Lays Off 1/3 Of Staff http://tinyurl.com/4wt7dx #
  • And then it was 9 to 1. *wooof!* #
  • @TrevMurphy I have to say I’m happy with Dell … 1525. But I find myself thinking, “Ok, buy an Apple. Then put Linux on this.” !j/k #
  • TweetDeck uses search.twitter.com for hashtags. TwHirl uses *sigh* hashtags.org … which fails. #
  • @changeforge No diss, but is what I meant by “borg”. With X set of habits, no prob. Move differently, it’s just one snag after another. #
  • @tweetdeck #tweetdeck When is a Reply not a reply? When it’s in that panel, but w/o @ viz: http://bentrem.sycks.net/images/tweetdeck2.jpg #
  • Give that ball a 5 year contract!! #
  • Getting more than a tad tired of FaceBook’s puerile soft-pr0n ads. #
  • @changeforge I think that’s the diff between typical consumer environment and ?what? a more dev-oriented box. “Pain” nearly captures it. #
  • How odd: profile for @BreakingNewz shows no info on identity, no name, neither blog nor web page, yet 3K+ followers. *blink* #
  • “Upton” and “bad throw” in same sentence … wish that happened more often. #
  • All in all? I’m sorely tempted to get back into competitive archery. Or snooker. Kill 20-30hrs/wk purely selfish pleasure. #
  • John Cleese on Palin as parrot (thanks to Seesmic) > http://snurl.com/4df2d < #
  • RT @dalmaer [text lost; about porting Ubiquity to Thunderbird] > http://tinyurl.com/43ftfj < #
  • WSF’s Jon Hilsenrath looks 24. (PayPerView article so no link) #
  • OMG I finally came up with a domain name that describes my process and IT SEEMS TO BE AVAILABLE. *feather.down.knock* #
  • When I use the Open function in FF, I see a normal directory view. In my text editor? As though pictures; “Date Taken”. I sooooo hate Vista! #
  • Using 3 different Open functions I get 3 diff views of my directory … 1 of them being the normal files view. M$ coders must be stupid. #
  • How wack is Vista? see “Disable Automatic Folder Type Discovery”; screens full of Registry edits > http://snurl.com/4dh3h < You’re sick, M$. #
  • I’m going offline because I can’t stand constantly being tripped up by what M$ thinks is “smart”. The dumbing down of the American mind? M$ #
  • @technosailor Cudda used that 2 wks ago when I bought this Dell. HeyHo. #

  • “the end of eMail as a social tool?” > http://snurl.com/4e4eh < “don’t push to these people anymore, PULL … get them to befriend you” #
  • @Mlsif I happened onto DailyBeast coupla weeks ago. Actually re-visited my dusty NetVibes just to give it prominence. #
  • Eeeew … http://www.universalmccann.com uses flash for main text ergo: cannot select / copy. *pfffffft!* #
  • @stevemtzn (You didn’t re-follow so I cannot DM.) No context; sync loss. Sorry, which domain was that? #
  • @Julian101 Had a story for you but no follow => no DM. #
  • 89, 10, and 1: 89% have their eye on the buck; 10% want optimized tools and toys; 1% feel pressed to actualize dynamic democracy. *sigh* #
  • search.twitter.com kinda sux: “after web2.0” failed; “after web 2.0” passed. meh! > http://snurl.com/4eadq < @rww #

  • Q: what’s the effect of continuous / serial partial attention on cognitive schema? 1) Q is rhetorical, 2) don’t know, don’t care, 3) Neato! #

  • heh … #347 but missed the top 10%. TwitterVille ain’t The Big Apple! #
  • @judell If ever you feel deep need to see fabulous New England fall colours, drive the Cabot Train in Cape Breton. A real gob-smacker. #
  • @cw Moments like that lead to lucid irony … if one has the stomache for it. Straight out of Camus, ayup. #
  • @tommorris Succinct. Parsimonious. Sounds precise i.e. corresponds to my experience. +5 ;-P #
