  • @alexknowshtml – Can’t create culture? How about “Culture is necessarily a group product. What you do makes a difference, even if nothing.” #
  • @alexknowshtml Don’t want to quibble here, but since “doesn’t come from nowhere” … not “created”? Aiming at sense of authorship. #
  • “HELL NO YOU CAN”T!!” Yes, We Can (YouTube featuring John Boehner)” > http://bit.ly/bcTf5p < #
  • “It is often reported that Howard Dresner coined the term “business intelligence” in 1989” > http://bit.ly/1yCmqN < #
  • @nickla – Hey Nick. Was just writing about poor documentation; your tutorial on WP theme … well, restored my faith in human nature? ;-) #
  • Did you usta use IRC? I had mIRC c/w texto-to-speech running almost constantly … #Mozilla-docs … I miss those days. heh, remember XUL?! #
  • @lizstrauss “Fears” have never been a problem How about “generalized disappointment”? #
  • @DeanLand “Disintermediation” +5 … but has that actualized? I’m seeing flocks that unanimously turn to A-list sources. #Balkanization #
  • @tlw3 @leslie Good material / thanks for intro to the site (I subscribed) but RFE: absence of descriptive text gives impression of haste. #
  • @craignewmark Gravity prolly just shrugged, if it took notice at all. #
  • @akaMonty +25 … “pap” is the flip-side of “jingoism”. #
  • @brett – Prolly a good idea to spider @bradfitz on that. I like it … and GWave too … but jello/wall keeps coming to mind. #
  • @podcasting_news I can almost remember precisely the day I descovered Audacity. I use commercial stuff now, but really should re-visit. #
  • @podcasting_news I can almost remember precisely the day I discovered Audacity. I use commercial stuff now, but really should re-visit. #
  • @JohnFMoore Meh … TweetDeck doesn’t create “InReplyTo” link. I must check/see how Twhirl handles that. #
  • Who’s talking about the Liberal Party’s “thinkers’ conference”? Lotsa folk, but not the Party > http://bit.ly/dqezgI < *D’uhh” #
  • @AkaashMaharaj – There could be streaming video (as with #OpenYEG), or /something/. Tons on the web. > http://bit.ly/coMbYe < #
  • Tell me I need to set a WP.com blog to comment, I update my profile, and you tell me the same again. > http://bit.ly/cbfY0V < BS. #
  • Three days ago all of my blogs recorded a significant blip in activity. Hmmmm … wonder what that was about. Some A-list mentioned me? #
  • When I clamber onto my blue ox (This summer? coupla years?) I will go silent for a long while, to get the taste of cotton-candy out my mouth #
  • @mikhaill – Don’t forget “social justice” as key-term; my cohort may have forgotten, but I haven’t. And neither has Beck. Signal, nae? #
  • @motownmutt – Do a critical analysis of what passes for “natural” ingredients. It’s gag a maggot! #
  • @brooksbayne – You say “Democratic Party” while up here I say “Liberal and NDP” … and usually go on to say “my cohort”. #
  • @rgaidot Have you seen Daniele Futtorovic’s “Asynchronous Widget”? > http://bit.ly/bh9X4A < (Looks good? The docs are too cryptic for me.) #
  • @unorder Mmmmm … sounds reductionist. I’d like a bit of cognitive schema / bias introduced. Else we seem perfectly free agents. #
  • @jjprojects heh … long version of what I’ve been saying? “How is it that “nice” people say the don’t judge, but then condemn/withold.” #
  • @kentbrew *wh000t!* I met him backstage one time. Made the mistake of calling him at home in LA. Wow, what a temper haaahahaha #
  • Dear A-list – May you someday realize the inevitably irony/paradox: you are “A” because you characterize the horde, not because you lead. #
  • @mikhaill My thesis at Dal was that we have optimized conditions for psychopathy. (Say, hasn’t DSM confounded it w/sociopathy?) #
  • @mikhaill p.s. from 1996: http://bentrem.sycks.net/fallen_angels.html i.e. “lack of conscience” = absence of empathy (Quasi-autism?) #
  • Anyone remember Geek Code? Should we start using Google Profile as the equivalent? (RFE: they include WP or Twitter avatar.) #
  • @brooksbayne You gotta remember, Founding Fathers barred the doors. (I think Thomas Paine was on the outside … tweeting. heh) #
  • @brooksbayne – When in rather private setting w/teacher we usta joke about JewBu’s … something about Judaism/Buddhadharma that works. #
  • @jmancini77 Oooh! Seriously geek! +5 #
  • ReTw @adrielhampton I’ve actually found a lot of benefit just to responsiveness. *Hear, hear!* #
  • @motownmutt Pre-xactly. “Apple-pie” terms: grist for the jingoist’s mill. As are heh peace and mother’s love. Delicious, nae? :-) cheers #
  • @craignewmark @jstrevino OMG chess bores me, but QED?! BTW: you mustRPTmust read Heintz Pagels, applied physicist. RIP. #
  • @craignewmark KyeHo … was going to msg you re: karmic coincidence w/Trevino but ah.lha no Follow => no DM. ‘nite #
  • @DeanLand – A-list X drowns out A-list M. Sophists VS Socratic. Thus has it always been. “It’s a battle of ideas”; Leon’s fave slogan. :-) #
  • @DeanLand p.s. your blog is refusing connection … sorry, no diagnostic data. #
  • @lizstrauss – I was letting others control how I feel? Ohhhh no. If that were ever true I’d have taken long walk on a short pier. The point? #
  • @alexknowshtml – Ah-lha … “authored” passive; authorship, personal engagement. I insist on that; your formulation refutes it. cheers #
  • @elephantjournal A fine one from Pema: “You need to hide in your room? Fine, do. But don’t lock the door. In fact, leave it open a crack.” #
  • @Scobleizer Young man, sometimes people curry favor. Sometime folk toadie. Don’t encourage that. #NoblesseOblige #feck #spine #integrity #

  • @trib You geek! /me likes geeks /me thinks geeks are fuuuuunny. *short/chortle* cheers #
  • @ushahidi You got me remembering IRC conferences with IndyMedia. Hey, anybody in your crew remember gopher? _namaste_ #
  • Dear Yuppie – “You’re with us or against us” still rings. And the way you manifest comforts /nobody/. #ClueOne #
  • Muslims should see that the activists are not godly. Sounds good? K … who do you know cares about godliness? #Gyre #
  • @tlw3 I’m sorry, but your tweet-stream is like having RSS. I think I’ll have to UnFollow. #
  • @sant0sk1 “Not raw SQL”, fine. But chunks of the Loop; wonderful! (For context: “WP console” > http://bit.ly/OPfXh < ) #
