  • #USBudget – Really, it's very simple: claw back women's right to choose, deny climate change, and gov continues. Next time: creationism. #
  • @andrewchilts Gadd … I gotta get back into the stacks. UofA is 1 short bus ride away. Haven't cracked a journal in 10yrs! in reply to andrewchilts #
  • @andrewchilts BTW I don't think Poor's pub date (2004) is incidental; late 90s was rich in critical discussion. More recently? *sigh* :-) in reply to andrewchilts #
  • @baratunde heh that's funny. I thoght, "Brother has discovered a civilized place!" and headed to FourSquare to snoop. Tbilisi here I come? in reply to baratunde #
  • What forces are acting to form "social media"? On TV I see Jersey Shore is a big hit. I also note that funding for PBS is being cut. 0_o #
  • @andrewchilts I don't trust anybody who doesn't do Wordle? ;-p Here's the one I use as BG for Twitter profile: http://tinyurl.com/4yrac48 < in reply to andrewchilts #
  • Bloomberg Venture Interviews Matt Mullenweg > http://bit.ly/ia9kA9 < (WordPress.tv) #WordPress #
  • #TeaBaggers on CNN … smarmy sophists. Sneering, snotty, ignorant cretins. Planned Parenthood isn't the target? Liars. Simply that: liars. #
  • @SparkingInsight Nothing new here. Hitler and Goebbles set it out in clear language. in reply to SparkingInsight #
  • @SparkingInsight p.s. the intelligentsia has sold its soul for consumerism. That's my cohort: the yuppies. Sophists of a more refined sort. in reply to SparkingInsight #
  • "What is the most common POLICY implementation problem/issue?" > http://bit.ly/ho4QLT < (LinkedIn.com) cc: @andrewchilts #
  • How ironic: on PBS right now, "Civil War". Nothing like bloody-minded greed to make the worst of a bad situation. #
  • Inelegantly simple: you're mercenary or you're not. #
  • I can put it this way: when has "the court of public opinion" ever relied on reason, logic, and facts? Let alone solidarity and empathy. #
  • @andrewchilts Peripheral to your work? "YouTube and Capitalism's Role in a Community" > http://bit.ly/i14Lif < (Harvard Business Review) #
  • #USBudget – With TeaBag pressure, GOP is showing its true colors: lies, lies, and more lies. Party of Lincoln my ass! #
  • Looks like Syria has gone insane. #
  • Why don't we do things well? "Violence Surges At Hospital For Mentally Ill Criminals" > http://bit.ly/fszfHJ < (NPR.org) #
  • "Al Qaeda has expanded its presence inside Afghanistan" > http://bit.ly/dVYNCD < (PBS.org) #NeedToKnow #
  • GOP's nonsense figures concerning Planned Parenthood, office says, "were not meant to be statements of fact". Oh well, that's fine. *D'uhh!* #
  • Attack Planned Parenthood, attack EPA, attack public broadcasting … GOP/TeaBaggers are troglodytes. #
  • I have to question your worldview. Basically. If material wealth is so good, why is the USofA so f*cked in the head? Ever ponder that? #
  • Lusting for security makes you cowards. Lusting for wealth makes you weak. God, don't folk ever /think/?! #
  • Boehner makes it clear: he's not going to "roll over and sell out the American people". Oh. Is that what this is about. *perfectly arse!* #
  • #USBudget – Context: you have to keep in mind that Obama is a foreign-born Muslim communist. All else flows from that. #Madness #
  • @wadhwa I've been rereading Mark Kingwell (1996) "Dreams of Millennium; Report from a culture on the brink". Chap3, "To Have or Have Not". in reply to wadhwa #
  • @support – Location is still insane. It finds Edmonton, KY but not Edmonton, AB or Edmonton Alberta. C'mon, fix this. #regression #twitter #
  • Tom Price (R) – Planned Parenthood isn't breaking the law, but GOP doesn't like them, so government shut down is required. #madness #
  • #GovShutdown countdown clock and resources > http://bit.ly/hh4KbR < (GovLoop.com) via @GovLoop #
  • @RepWeiner But of course it isn't about effect or efficiency, it's about a) punishment and b) posturing. cc: @revgeorge in reply to revgeorge #

  • On the bridge of a sinking ship: "guidance" from Office of Management and Budget > http://bit.ly/dMn8W2 < (PDF) via @GovLoop #GovShutdown #
  • @rinkjustice "For money" I think makes it look less bad than it really is. The better experiments folk will do it for lots of lesser reasons in reply to rinkjustice #
  • Here's my problem: "nice" people don't mind being in churn mode. Cuz they go by popularity. And complaining wouldn't be "nice". #matrix #
  • #FlashBack – Found bookmarks from Netscape 3.0 … 1999 … #
  • @rinkjustice I took a break and went to U in my mid-40s; studied cog- and social psych, along w/PoliSci & criminology … fascinatin'. in reply to rinkjustice #
  • @codepo8 When did that start? I was actually hoping for older stuff. Prolly on a ZIP drive somewhere. (My 1st was Mosaic 0.6.2a. I have it!) in reply to codepo8 #
  • @codepo8 In the old days I used History prolly more often. When it was readable. Great material to tweak / edit / save. NS3.5 broke that. in reply to codepo8 #
  • #Flashback – heh recovered Inbox and Trash from FEB1999 … heh … #
  • #GovShutdown – I reasoned in the 70s that technocracy could never survive; practitioners are unprincipled, and deciders are simply corrupt. #
  • #FlashBack – Why did folk stop using ICQ? Had some good fun on that client. A /lot/ of good fun. While we're at it: anybody recall PowWow? #
  • @jdlasica Shouldn't that be filed under "too little too late"? or how about "run with the foxes and hunt with the hounds"? in reply to jdlasica #
  • @geoffhing see Paulo Freire's "Education for Critical Consciousness". Good stuff on teaching basics. cc: @JoeGermuska in reply to JoeGermuska #
  • @ayjay mnom! in reply to ayjay #
  • Q: is it reasonable to expect folk who ignore matters of consciousness to be aware of the ways consumerism rots our brains? #matrix #borg #
  • @jdlasica She's playing a dangerous game … likely to be seen as unreliable by those in her tent. in reply to jdlasica #
  • Michelle Bachman, Mike Huckabee … even Karl Rove are backing away from #GovShutdown So really: who are the nut cases?! #
  • Don't let the jackassess off the hook! Boehner described compromise as "rolling over and selling out the American people". #GovShutdown #
  • @ddmcd mutati mutandis … entirely different process from start to finish: Communist Party Leader would never allow others any control. in reply to ddmcd #
  • @monaeltahawy Not having so many back-room IOUs is the real solution. Ain't gonna happen. in reply to monaeltahawy #
  • What I figure: if you feel okay about children growing up in abject poverty then you're clinically insane. The rest is epilog. #
  • Can't tell what's being decided, how it's being decided, or why it's being decided. In short: yuppies created a culture of schmooze. #borg #
  • #BullCrap – West (R) talks a line: tough decisions secure the nation. Really? defunding public broadcasting / clawing back women's choice?! #
  • West (R) is an idiot: he talks about how his cut passed unanimously. Then basically declares planned parenthood and NPR wicked. #BullCrap #
  • #GovShutdown – Lincoln's re-election was, in effect, a referendum on slavery, on emancipation. Budget crap? Referendum on women's choice. #
