  • MustRPTmust watch NOVA on Mandelbrot and fractals. As I said to @spiver, “Phenomena matters!” (That’s a pun of some sort. *snort*) #
  • “This flagpole has not top.” “This well has no bottom!” I sure wish /someone/ had graduated Zen 101. NOVA/fractals: http://snurl.com/4sn3f < #
  • @daveman692 Thanks for the link. *not!* #
  • @cote Have you peeked http://buzzable.com/ ? #
  • @Malarkey They’re a sloppy/lazy/cheap workaround for wikis having diff markup. Yet.more 80/20 BS. #
  • 15yrs ago I was on the street sellling my prints of fractals and Julia sets. (Cost $15 each to print!) Nobody cared. *shrug* A-list culture. #
  • My god yuppies’ kidz are a feckless bunch of supercilious twits. Impunity bred in the bone … “apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” &tc. #
  • ReTw @IPPNW: A book by past president of IPPNW: “Enough Blood Shed – 101 Solutions to Violence, Terror and War” http://tinyurl.com/6h28bh < #
  • ReTw @kevinmarks: Add a badge to your google profile to say you’re voting in the US: http://www.google.com/s2/profiles/me/editprofile < #
  • How stuhned is google? I update 85% of my profile. Go to update photo … must log in. *D’uhh!* #
  • @spiver Peek my profile; I think “ThatOne” rocks. I wish some clehvur … oh! I’ll hack http://twitpic.com/io69 to make an avatar! *wh00t!* #
  • OMG, Obama almost turned a phrase: the scale of our challenges / the pettiness of our politics. #
  • @current *cough* Only the few you’ve Followed can DM you. Is how Twitter works. #
  • @MarkDykeman If fractilinear, iz whot. That’s why 80/20 is so corrupt / evil:t snips the ties that bind. Serendipity / synchronicity etc. #
  • JasonCalacanis and “DROP EVERYTHING AND WATCH!!!” … talk about boy / wolf. #
  • @12stepbuddhist t.w.e.e.t … what birds do. Not like s.w.e.a.t #
  • 30 minutes trying to change avatar. Fail whale each time. Good lord, sure glad I’m not trying to close a deal / land a plane. #
  • @thomasknoll If other things matter more than “loving users” thoughts, and you being community thingamajiggie, then … and thus it is. #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Go ahead, tell me you poured CR on the cheerios. C’mon big fella, you can do it … c’mon now … *snort* #
  • neverfindout.org … now Obama has disregard for children. GOP sucks worse than even M$. #
  • Q: if Bush’s militarists are so intent, how is Afgh. a dog’s breakfast? A: yuppies and yuppies’ kidz only monetize. Actual success is extra. #
  • “Money, not morality, is the principle of commerce and commercial nations.” Jefferson. And Internet companies? > http://snurl.com/4sqt7 < #
  • Sure would like to use an Obama avatar. But Twitter won’t let me. Over an hour of Fail Whale. #
  • ReTw @pprlisa: @steverubel what the hell is the matter with you Steve? [Was wondering myself.] #
  • 3KB, 40X40 … “picture is too big”. Gawd I’m tired of dumb stuff. #
  • @socialcoop I’m using “That One” as BG on my profile, and now “Buddhists for Obama” as avatar. #
  • SocialMedian and WashingtonPost election coverage > http://election.socialmedian.com < #
  • Newspapers “don’t have an audience problem – they have a consumer problem” > http://snurl.com/4taw1 < Fools thrive; foundations crack. #
  • @mathewi I don’t think it’s just me: LinkedIn, for all it’s $$ value, seems really thick when it comes to Web2-ish design and deployment. #
  • @akaMonty Is what I said to my “better half” about her $45 tube of lip-balm fully 12 yrs ago. We broke up shortly after. heh #
  • @MattDickman I signed up on Yammer yesterday. Does what I wanted: very tightly limited IM/workgroup. Nicely deployed, and an AIR client too! #
  • @12stepbuddhist “Like a woodchip on a surging stream, like a slip of paper in a windstorm” … mundane control is such a mirage! #
  • ReTw @fredwilson: i wish i could write something as long and thoughtful about Obama as Tim O’Reilly has > http://bit.ly/XQZlf < #
  • This is ridiculous. Yet again Firefox under #Vista fails to play video soundtrack. Pathetic. #
  • Something like social ranking on google search results? > http://snurl.com/4teaw < Google’s calling it “wiki”. Dunno about that, but still! #
  • @lisarokusek “Talking about”; is why I so often refer to “aspirational values”. Great stuff for creating persona but actually nothing there. #
  • @technosailor Thanks for heads up on #WP 2.7 … hadn’t bothered with 2.6.3. #
  • @mkrigsman As Wavy Gravy put it, “When you lose your sense of humor … that’s not funny.” #
  • @davetroy TwitterVision.com has been good for you? Glad to see you pressing ahead with http://twittervotereport.com and such. #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Breaking news: loonie jumped; just under 82c now. TSX seems to be surging. Something shifted somewhere? #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Not monitoring; only heard loonie/TSX news on CBC radio (BG when I’m keyboarding). #
  • http://twittervision.com/maps/show_3d … always fun to watch. #
  • @thomasknoll Congrats! And you’re in good company; the “230 WorldWide Bloggers” is a great list: http://snurl.com/4tiwn < #
  • @pfanderson @strnglibrarian That triad is what we were taught in Jr NCO training (for corporal stripes). #
  • A “WebStar”‘s advice: “Use Twitter as micro-blogging; Follow nobody. And have as few Inboxes as possible.” A psychopath’s view of “social”. #
  • ReTw @9600: The Open Source Embroidery HTML Patchwork (http://is.gd/58mC) is the coolest thing ever. [Wicked cute idea!] #
  • @alexdc ” lead the way to participatory democracy?” Google “participatory deliberation”. My idea is we need to get into decision process. #
  • ReTw @pfanderson: Laughing myself silly (jQuery jack o lantern): http://ping.fm/1ue5o [Haaa! The ultimate in-joke?] #
  • @jazzychad If you like that sorta stuff you gotta see PBS/NOVA’s show on fractals / non-linearity. Aired yesterday. #
  • @adelemcalear I was about to apply as soundscape tech to one game company then found that “Invade Venezuela” was their idea of fun. *Next!* #
  • @judell Does anyone talk “finite state machines” any more? The concept seems to have dropped out of sight. #
  • @rww I’ll stay with LiveJournal … mere loyalty. ;) #
  • @mastermaq Woaaa! Whoever was doing PR for that should find another line of work. How nice … 5 hours notice. *head/desk* #

  • @alexdc Gracias … can’t have too many primary sources! (Ohhhh yes I can. *grin*) cheers #
  • Oooh! Nadal in competition! (Some pretty decent Web2-ish stuff on http://www.atptennis.com/1/en/home/ IIRC.) #
  • http://mozdawg.blogspot.com … I must be writing very poorly about total crap. 8 comments in as many months. *sigh* #
  • @jowyang Ever read Robert Reich on the effect of short-term decision making on “patient capital”? RobertReich.blogspot IIRC. #
  • ReTw @elasticserver: ReTw @BrightTALK Virtualization Webcast Summit > http://tinyurl.com/5fl7ol < Hear from VMWare, CohesiveFT, CompTIA … #

  • Needed: PostScript geek to help me reincarnate circa ’89 fractal microscope. #
  • @brianshaler Oooh, sci.vis is my most favorite thing. Did ind.rsch using VRML in ethology / taxonomy. Alas PPT I gave to Psych is corrupt. #

  • @shelisrael RFE: s/ owls / weasels #
  • ReTw @propublica: Gitmo Tribunal: Things Fall Apart http://bit.ly/1oZVFT < [An abomination, nothing less. So much willful ignorance!] #
  • Nadal’s ball control is unearthy. Bet he puts truly twice as much spin as anyone else. #
  • Doing good simply > http://bogolight.com | http://sunnightsolar.com < Fact is source of light transforms peasants’ lives. Really, it does. #
  • Because language has not been honest, because facts have been bowdlerized, today Obama has to fight the “socialist” smear. #
  • #geek Mount multiple GMail accounts using GMail Drive > http://snurl.com/4tru0 < #
  • #SpaceShipEarth “Living Planet Report”. Annual planetary deficit: 30% > http://snurl.com/4tsic < *stall; spin; crash; burn; die* #
