  • How skewed is the dominant model? How about this: E=MC2, paid by the word, would result in how much? Bla-bla-bla-yada-blah is worth more. #
  • "The battle not always to the brave, the race not always to the swift"; I wonder, how many folk recall WordPerfect's macro language? #brill #

  • @JohnFMoore SnagFilms and http://ciaonet.org/ … nothing in common? *clehvur giggle* in reply to JohnFMoore #
  • What I said about how craft grounds us? Ponder this: "grist for the mill" doesn't resonate with you, does it. Oh, you know what it means but #
  • #Yuppies and their kidz (ADHD to the max) think that "grist for the mill" means yet.another meme / tangent to babble on about. #pathology #
  • @JohnFMoore Ooops … a coupla new domains that aren't on the radar: http://contra-version.com <> http://contraversion.org < in reply to JohnFMoore #
  • Did you know that we're "cognitive misers"? It's true. We're adapted to use heuristics. So folk are grateful for such as "Liberals are bad." #
  • For months I've diligently clicked "Repetitive" on dating ads in FB. Result? Now only 3 of 4 ads are dating sites. Yuppie kidz' bullshit. #

  • @JohnFMoore BTW the !Q! on Gnodal … was using that technique *gawwwd* many, many years ago. That page is MAY04. in reply to JohnFMoore #

  • "FB apps should automatically default to viewing all of users' data" … gawd, really … think much?! #

  • Any #psychopath worth his salt (invariably male, btw) knows better than to take "divide and conquer" literally. "Distract and" works too. #
  • You've seen it in the movies: how does the spook "recruit" an asset, a clear appeal to noble principles? pfffft! Your naivite is dispicable. #
  • @yourdon heehee /me notes, "Buy Ed a macro lens for Christmas". :-) BTW I gave up on color; /everything/ was tasty. B&W ooooh-lah-lah! in reply to yourdon #

  • How to become a pundit in 1 easy step: talk about what others are talking about. that.is.all p.s. Don't for God's sake /do/!! That's death. #

  • @ChrisPirillo I'm a plug. Not nearly brilliant. A ground-pounder. A grunt. Not work-horse … maybe 1 trick pony. (But it's a good trick!) in reply to ChrisPirillo #
  • The means and modes of production we take as given are, actually, artifacts. Thoughtless, mindless, you perpetuate the dominant paradigm. #
  • I said I was a plug. I didn't say I was a mindless drone. I said I was a grunt. I meant I was in no way a thoughtless yuppie. ?Habla ingl├ęs? #
  • @Ogmin Last bit: "We eat lest we become lean and die. We eat so that all may become enlightened." Without that I'd have despaired long ago! in reply to Ogmin #
  • @BlyVienerx1121 1) Your link is broken. 2) You're reported for spamming. Bah-bye now! #
  • "We're making a killing here!" … poetic, nae? Now, who can think to change that attitude? Game/set/match to Russian mafia and Chinese CP. #
  • What I notice with #Gov2 0 types (A-list included): as I draw them closer to praxis and techne, they become ever more abstracted. #matrix #
  • The choice: 1) actually deploy now, or 2) spend years hauling in $$$ for bla-yada and /then/ deploy. *D'uhh* It's called mundane corruption. #
  • @tonyratcliffe Sadly, I lost my Netscape bookmarks and email in 2003. 8yrs of stuff; catastrophic HD failure. There were fine mail lists. in reply to tonyratcliffe #
