  • Phil Ochs being jerked around by Bob Dylan … will A-list ever reckon their cruelty? #
  • There are 3 types of people: those who are A-list, those who are A-list wannabes, and those (the smallest group) who mourn this BS. #
  • #Psychology – I have faith in human nature. I truly believe that "just folk" know in their guts that they are un-indicted co-conspirators. #
  • Think of it this: A-list pundits monetize our lives by commodifying / trivializing what matters to us. Often superficial; usually bloodless. #
  • I finally used QuoraMy answer on "What startups focus on politics, elections, voting, etc?" > http://qr.ae/b40s (cont) http://tl.gd/8ud82e #

  • @JohnFMoore Ever hear Queen Noor speak? http://bit.ly/1ahBVB is on my list of foundations to approach (if ever I deploy). in reply to JohnFMoore #
  • Propaganda aside, "#SocialMedia" gives you the power to hush those saying what you don't want to hear. See why I use #borg and #matrix ? #
  • How do you think of as "community"? I'd guess it's those you include i.e. those who affirm and re-enforce what you already like and believe. #
  • @cswanger Do libraries have WiFi yet? I recall late 90s docs showing how homeless made use of public access points. Major. Key. in reply to cswanger #
  • @acarvin We created a sliding magazine-format timeline of Indymedia key items almost 10yrs ago. No interest = infant mortality. #borg in reply to acarvin #
  • "History is what historians agree on". Well, with innovation, "need" is what A-list find interesting at any moment. #pathology #matrix #borg #
  • @acarvin p.s. NPR and CBC, or BBC and CBS, or LA/NYTimes … corporate entities are hermetic to innovation. "For A-list only". I know. Fact. in reply to acarvin #
  • Seen that ad for sub sandwiches where the boss talks over the secretary's good suggestions? That's what A-list do with innovation. #matrix #
  • @cswanger If we work through to a set of agreed facts (not easy!), if that's done openly, "subjective narrative" comes out! cc: @davefleet in reply to cswanger #

  • For the record: I proposed to use computer monitors to coordinate control room / studio in broadcasting. 1978. Innovation is for A-list only #
  • @tweetminster – Have you connected with any Hansard related groups? (I worked in our provincial legislature.) Very rich source! cheers –ben #
  • Sex and spirituality? Sure, yaa, that makes sense. But when I think of students and teachers involved sexually … I must be diff species. #
  • Dear A-list – You can't dine with the nobles then pretend a street-level view of actualities. That you think you can is symptomatic. #borg #
