  • Oh please, point me to yet.another re-treaded forum and tell me how you're breaking ground. Show me yet.more data to add to the tsunami. #
  • What I've seen true since 60s: everybody wants to hang with the band, everybody wants the contact buzz, but autonomy? Surplus to req. #
  • @cybercourt W/respect (I appreciate your work) it's a tad academic for me. in reply to cybercourt #
  • Holy crap Rush Limbaugh has lost his last connection with reality. US right-wing is /insane/. #
  • @ParkerSpitzer – Would you please adjust your set? Limbaugh did not /imitate/ Hu … me /mocked/. Jesus H language no longer matters?! #
  • News ticker on @ParkerSpitzer: "Limbaugh imitated Hu on his program" … WTF / FFS. #
  • PM Trudeau gave a speech about "rising expectations" and got spanked. PotUS Carter gave a speech about consummerism and got wacked. #yuppies #

  • Firefox for me is kinda like the web in general: staying on top of it becomes less and less worth the effort. #
  • #Firefox – I'm guessing that there's no way to import all the login info I've used for years and years and years … ReDo from Start? #FF3 #

  • @dahowlett Outliers. I brought that up in my "statistics for clinical psych" class … 3rd year gack. Prof suggested I change my major. *G* in reply to dahowlett #
  • @euan thanks to @dahowlett I saw this item. As for the comment I left … any credit goes to him (and you); all blame mine. in reply to euan #
  • @dahowlett A craftsman sorta fella; the rare type that allowed me to think the U a fit place to invest time/gold. heh … an outlier. *G* in reply to dahowlett #
  • @dahowlett p.s. if I'd been in my 20s I'd have taken his offer. But in my late 40s, well, I had a hobby-horse to ride. in reply to dahowlett #
  • @dahowlett p.s.2 an ethology prof I chatted w/in faculty club about feed-back/feed-forward gave me $ to apply VRML to motion rsch. *beam* in reply to dahowlett #
  • Talk about kids being radicalized in madrass? Well right-wingers have schools where kids are taught, for example, #HolocaustDenial #
  • @JohnFMoore A key point. > http://bit.ly/eTSYL3 < I've documented the same utterance from, say, Canadian Senators and head of CIA. in reply to JohnFMoore #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere What's blown off here > http://bit.ly/eTSYL3 < I've been saying since '75. Sen. Banks says it; blown off. Head CIA; same. in reply to ChrisLaBossiere #
  • @chrisj_moore Something I tweeted to @ChrisLaBossiere just now, about the public consultation process: http://bit.ly/i8wjp8 < #
  • @Andy2e0pmt "EX"? I don't know what that is. Did I typo? I asked where it was because I thought it was DX. in reply to Andy2e0pmt #
  • @Andy2e0pmt Oh heh sorry no, can't give you a call; not on the air. Looking for a rig is why I put the call out locally! 25yrs on; 8 off. in reply to Andy2e0pmt #
  • @Andy2e0pmt Know what I really miss? The boxes full of bits and pieces … connectors and such. The many, many little things. in reply to Andy2e0pmt #
  • Crosby's off the ice from a hit to the head? I only just heard. Kinda puts UFC/MMA into perspective. #
  • #CounterIntuitive – Moving around while in the cold warms us, yes? Right. It's true. Swimming while in cold water … uh-oh, terribly wrong. #
  • If you graph airplane flights you get a pretty picture. Oh, wow, how … how … how totally irrelevant. *meh!* #
  • Convince, compel, coerce … really, in most situations obedience is all that's required. I'm surprised /more/ folk don't go bat-shit crazy. #
  • @Andy2e0pmt I was lucky: extra space allowed me to build ham shack; clutter is sweet! :-) Rig is no big prob but extras will be PITA. 73 in reply to Andy2e0pmt #
  • @euan I just noticed "ToggleReferenceMode" function on your blog. What comment plugin are you using. Looks sweet! #
  • "The Net Delusion: How Not to Liberate the World by Evgeny Morozov" > http://bit.ly/efHuat < Guardian review #
  • @euan So: it's part of that theme? not a plugin? in reply to euan #
  • @euan Right, thanks. Nifty! ("Squarespace" WP theme > http://bit.ly/uqbNb < ) in reply to euan #
  • @digiphile Really?! You figure? I'm on record saying just the opposite, e.g. > http://bit.ly/i8wjp8 < I'll stand by that. cc: @meganesque in reply to digiphile #
  • For years I've been saying that engagement with policy decisions gets practically 0 attention. Now, apparently, it's intriguing. Go figure. #
  • It truly is insanity. "Attention economy" is either fiction, or benign. Even benevolent. (Yuppies' unlimited capacity for self-delusion.) #
  • @digiphile "Intriguing" is active. Activity=consequences. Absence of consequence indicates that the action didn't occur i.e. near 0 impact. in reply to digiphile #
  • We're all pretty familiar with how "Oh, that's interesting" means "OMG how do I change subject?!" "I want to ignore" = !intrigued. #reality #
  • @digiphile I suggest "born out in practice or policy" as the end of a long chain of events and process, where "intrigued" is 1st or 2nd. in reply to digiphile #
  • @meganesque Hey there! Found your material on SlideShare but failed til now to locate you here. cheers! in reply to meganesque #
  • #FailureToCommunicate – When I write "self-congratulatory" it's as though folk read "friendly and collaborative". #matrix #borg #
  • Originally posted as a comment to @digiphile's "The role of the Internet as a platform for collective action (cont) http://tl.gd/8a19nn #
  • Reminded of why I started working on "discourse-based decision support" back in '75 > http://www.twitlonger.com/show/8a19nn < #
  • Fecklessness requires a certain ignorance of history. "Let them eat cake" wasn't a witty comment at a party. And I wouldn't have laughed. #
  • I wonder: can the degree of a society's pathology be measured by the number of capable individuals who play the role of cheer-leaders? #
  • @digiphile I said something otherwise? I suggested folk shouldn't be intrigued? Certainly not. My point: "intrigued" has effects. Evidence. in reply to digiphile #
  • "Attention economy" isn't politically agnostic. #feckless It's a natural extension of every nasty social game you've ever experienced. #
  • @digiphile p.s. I'm usually bewildered. Willinsky on OpenAccess + Habermas on "discourse ethics" results in 0.00 signs of interest. #borg in reply to digiphile #
  • "Slactivists" as the major product of internet activity isn't limited to the political. "Damned with faint praise" is Standard Operating … #
  • OMG I'm so terribly /slow/. So … in "attention economy" those who show most "interest" are signally their wealth. Actual /action/? pfffft #
  • My biggest contract: 7 staff in almost 3rs produced 3K+ pages of tech_docs … a worthless heap. But they'd gotten their salaries. #borg #
  • Ever have someone say to you, "Oh, man, the news, no, uh-unh, I don't watch the news man, too much downer." I appreciate that authenticity. #
  • Seen the TV add where instead of a wrecking ball the crane as a big pink bunny? That's how I feel about #Gov2 0: Kinda got the idea, but … #
