  • Amanpour? Dialog between Mubarak and the people?! You gotta be kidding. The people shout, Mubarak continues his monolog. #
  • Looks like the Presidential Palace is going to be the site for the show-down. Hope the Army stays cool. #Egypt #
  • @digiphile Lovely work. That is, lovely way to work with data. Dealing with issues? I don't see it. I think the name is misleading. in reply to digiphile #
  • @digiphile Pressured to re-name Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln quipped calling a dog's hind leg otherwise wouldn't change how it walked. in reply to digiphile #
  • @digiphile My point: such as cMap and Rationale and Compendium can be said to map issues (however poorly). IssueMap.org doesn't. in reply to digiphile #
  • IssueMap.org shows me 2 things: 1) given enough resource folk will likely find a good domain, and 2) given that they'll produce /something/. #
  • @digiphile Yes, I know it's a data viz site. Is my point. Producing a graph (c/w nice images and animation) != mapping the issue. in reply to digiphile #
  • @digiphile p.s. I can see the argument, really I can. Game & set. :-) in reply to digiphile #
  • @digiphile Paradigmatic "issue map"? I'd call this, "Where do we see integrated neighborhoods? http://bit.ly/ffxD2K < in reply to digiphile #
  • @jongos I /couldn't /believe// that Amanpour called his speech a dialog. It's like she was reaching for a metaphor and didn't quite make it. in reply to jongos #
  • @JaySamel Thanks. But careful: your account might get banned for spamming. good luck in reply to JaySamel #
  • @jongos p.s. I wasn't quoted anyone, so it's not actually via. I don't mean to speak for anyone but myself. in reply to jongos #
  • Interesting: got email from a director of engagement for a certain government agency, a tech question. The man has almost 0 web presence. #
  • @jayrosen_nyu Well dang, that pretty much puts a wrap on the pressing issues of the day! heh p.s. what about "Life's like that." in reply to jayrosen_nyu #
  • Seems to me that charming people are actually testing their ability to manipulate; trolling for disciples. Makes my skin creep. #
  • @jongos Oh, hey, more than glad to see the meme get some air under its wings. I'm a tad twitchy about karma I guess. :) cheers! in reply to jongos #
  • When a leader doesn't listen? I'm thinking back to Alexander, marching his exhausted army home, choosing to have them use the desert route. #
  • Obama said Mubarak "has some explaining to do"?! Oooh, if it were so! #
  • Folk in Tahrir Square show #Egypt #039;s qualities. What does "Jersey Shore" show of the USA? (Hey, pay attention: folk watch that shit.) #
  • OMG Rogers Telecom has a TV ad that's actually clever/funny! #
  • Innovation and technology metric of something? If so then the Third Reich was awesome. (Mistaken beliefs concerning the nature of reality.) #
  • "Vexatious fallacies" … does that work? Mubarak saying upheaval is due to Zionists and USA. #
  • 80/20 – Factory farms produce plenty of cheap chicken to eat. There's the easy 80%. Hard 20%? Dealing with the super-bugs crawling on it. #
  • @mosaaberizing So: I create a system where people talk with people about policy decisions and /leaders/ are quiet. @monaeltahawy in reply to monaeltahawy #
  • "A man of the catacombs who's been dragged into the light"; a good description of Suleiman. #Egypt #
  • @SashaKane "The car is out of gas" … and yet a certain type of person believes that words and language are merely subjective. #matrix in reply to SashaKane #
  • @acarvin I just recently realized that the WP plugin I use had created a full archive. Want data? in reply to acarvin #
  • @acarvin p.s. http://bentrem.sycks.net/blog/ … dead ugly; it's a klunky semantic web experiment. in reply to acarvin #
  • @ac360 – Someone reading this part of the "debunking" team? You and I have a project to discuss. (We can even use @IBMWatson!) #GNodal #
  • @AC360 – You just aired a clip of int'view w/Wael Ghonim. Was that with you/CNN? URL? #
  • @SashaKane Was I referring to you? Is it right or fair for you to tell me what my intention and meaning was? Evidently you /are/ the type. in reply to SashaKane #
  • @SashaKane You tweeted a reply to me. That's a fact. You know, fact? "I put gas in the car" … either true or not true. #BlissNinnies in reply to SashaKane #
  • @digiphile I just saw a clip of him on @AC360 that I hadn't seen before. Trying to find it. Pithy. cc: @acarvin in reply to digiphile #
  • @johnberr Guessing you mean the SW cruft: http://zitgist.com < Almost worked well at one time; plugin may be out of date. cc: @acarvin in reply to johnberr #
  • @gigaom We're cognitive misers; that's adaptive. When change means a massive context switch … calls for some serious intention! in reply to gigaom #
  • #StreetPolitics – More than 10yrs ago we set up IndyMedia Global. Street level, open authorship, video, real-time collaborative editing … #
  • @johnbattelle One thing I know: the area of the Rockies I want to move to has traditionally supported panners. /me rubs greasy mitts in reply to johnbattelle #
  • @AshleyAngell Don't over-sleep to recover, mate. You'll throw yourself into a gawd-awful spin cycle. in reply to AshleyAngell #
  • Gore the ox – The oligarchs in #Egypt must be made to pay (I mean by losing profit) for their present / continued support of Mubarak. #
  • NYTime's David Kirkpatrick on Charlie Rose. > http://bit.ly/f2caw3 < #
  • #Egypt – The revolutionary politics I internalized are not from USA. And not from England, or France, or Germany. From the bottom up! #
  • A sign: "Tahrir Square is the only free place in #Egypt " #
  • Chaos theory – Perturbed beyond its dynamic stability a system will pass through chaos before re-organizing. That's the way it is. #Egypt #
  • @EGovHerald The way I've framed things (0 traction so far) is discourse under-pinned by propositional logic. As a decision support system. in reply to EGovHerald #
  • "#Egypt has so much un-tapped potential. It should be the Taiwan of the E'n Mediterranean." Thomas Friedman on Charlie Rose. #
  • OMG … I only just now turned TV on. Mubarak giving way!! #Egypt #
  • Mubarak quitte the pouvoir … such a nice sentence! #Egypt #
  • "Council" will be headed by Minister of Defense, Tantawi. #Egypt #
  • Front lines is where I am most comfortable. (No, not joking.) Why? Cuz #yuppie BS does not obtain; authenticity is the rule. Not like here. #
  • Revolution won; now the real hard work starts: governance. #Egypt #
  • @marshallk There's something to what he says. Problem is that karma is often slow in fruition … hard to survive the meantime. in reply to marshallk #
  • 58:30 to Jeopardy @IBMWatson #
