  • Simple isn't /always/ better, no, but … see music/video > http://www.milosjanata.com < … turned a wok cover into a steel drum?! #DIY #
  • @CoachChic 3:30 left in the 2nd … we having fun yet? ;-) cheers in reply to CoachChic #
  • Commentator with 1:45 left in the 2nd: "Ohhhh, /everything/ is happening!" huh huh We gonna see a penalty shot? #MTL #BOS cc: @CoachChic #
  • Only sure way to beat #BOS is 4 straight. Anything else is too much like a crap-shoot. #MTL #
  • @CoachChic You saw the 3rd? Classic nail-biter. (Why's Gill so slow covering Price's left post?! Again he let someone walks out fm behind.) in reply to CoachChic #
  • Burrows' goal from Kessler was really, really, really pretty. #VAN #NHL #
  • @RevDannyFisher heh … refreshing, that style, isn't it. "We don't put our hands on a hot stove because we've learned burns hurt." in reply to RevDannyFisher #
  • @All_Habs Not suspension, no. I think he cudda really leaned into it, and he didn't. And he didn't leave his feet. in reply to All_Habs #
  • @CoachChic Mmm *me acts coy* Twice 5 on 3? (Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.) Otherwise? It was coin flip. (1st goal waved off!) in reply to CoachChic #
  • @CoachChic p.s. I know Gill ain't a speed merchant, but he knows it too. He's usually a tad more situational / strategic. in reply to CoachChic #
  • From Sarah Palin to Donald Trump … now, really, tell me that GOP crackers aren't brain damaged. "Birthers" = "Foil Helmet Nutbars". #
  • Donald Trump: "Obama spent millions of dollars on lawyers". Therefor PotUS has spent millions on the birther issue. Brain-damaged. #
  • @_karmadorje Samsara generally, nae? I'm not out here for my own health. ;-) "Boring" I could cope with. But it's sub-standard functionally! in reply to _karmadorje #
  • @CoachChic Remember Robinson? I loved watching Big Bird, even after he'd slowed down: he just got smahtah! cheers in reply to CoachChic #
  • #CultureWars #Hegemony – No idea what I'm talking about? How's this: anyone who doesn't subscribe to "attention economy" loses. #borg #
  • @CoachChic Sorry Coach you lost me. 4 big D? (As a wee kid I'd fall asleep to H' Night in Canada every Sat. Gump was my hero. No kidding.) in reply to CoachChic #
  • #NHL – No fair … I love cheering Chicago. But dang, I want to see Vancouver advance! #
  • @CoachChic Oh duh me, yes, 4D. *cough* Full name here is Bernard Dominic Joseph Edmond Tremblay. So you can guess who's name I'd add. ;-p in reply to CoachChic #
  • Twitter buddy got me flashing back … I just liked this page on the Habs' site > http://bit.ly/dHK9wh < #NHL cc: @CoachChic #
  • @CoachChic 'nite Coach. Night JC. ;p in reply to CoachChic #
  • #NHL – Kesler got assist on what may be the game-winner … but how did he not clinch the game just now?! #VAN #NHL #
  • @CoachChic 'nite Coach. And I'm guessing the man missing from your 4 is my long-lost cousin, JC Tremblay. ^5 in reply to CoachChic #
  • Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrgh! #VAN #CHI #
  • Is that the story here? That offensive-end penalty to Burrows … #VAN is self-destructive? #CHI #NHL #
  • #VAN #CHI – Most dramatic game of the playoffs to date for me. #NHL #
  • heh 5 seconds later: SCOOOOOOOOORE! #VAN #
  • I don't think "good democrats" listen a lot more than Donald Trump does. Thing is: Trump is unapologetic, so GOP crackers like him for that #
  • @AC360 – Google "framing" and do the reading. Crackers want a cracker to stand tall and talk the talk. Nothing more. #BrainDamage #
  • @craigthomler I'm been pushing "participatory deliberation" since 1976. "Innovation" is yet.another yuppie personality game. #matrix #borg in reply to craigthomler #
  • The truthful basis of reactionary politics isn't "fun". So yuppies never want to deal with it. Never. (Also: they're self-serving sell-outs) #
  • Trump describes bankruptcy of his casinos as "debt reduction"; from well over a billion to barely 500 million. "Debt reduction"; who paid?! #
  • @RBReich NB: Harper's approval rating in Conservative base is 90%. I say again: 90%. It's the age-old culture war: rationality VS jingoism. in reply to RBReich #
  • Hey kidz? Something to remember: Socrates was executed too. Not just Christ. And Gandhi was assassinated too, not just JFK and MLK. &tc &tc #
  • I've been an army of 1 so many years (decades) because my cohort is a bunch of feckless wusses. Cynical, pessimistic narcissistic wusses. #
  • Why is FB as good as we've got? Because when our bunch set up the Global Indymedia Network (a decade ago) you yuppie types ignored it. #borg #
  • @uncleweed I can understand his sentiment but I have to wonder: why would you RT that? I mean … yippee, some Van fans are crackers? in reply to uncleweed #
  • @uncleweed Just read your tweet-stream. 0% hockey; lots of hate. I guess is why I haven't been to van in 30yrs. yick. in reply to uncleweed #
  • You can't judge a person by appearance. Is why "attention economy" is so profoundly noxious. Judge a person by what they profess in action. #
  • @FINALLEVEL Looking forward to the show. And great hearing you on Q! peace in reply to FINALLEVEL #
  • @cockpiteu I plan on being more active than just "stay tuned". :-) in reply to cockpiteu #
  • #NewToMe "Campaign for a Stronger Democracy" @strongdemocracy > http://bit.ly/lHUdpw < #EGov #Gov2 #
  • Ever notice that FB email notifications of messages look like they were created in 1997? I mean to say /badly/ created. What a blechk mess! #
  • For me the point remains: what to do about irrationality? How to foster a community of rational agents?

  • Problem I see is that while some of us are straining to drain the swamp "social media" is flooded w/chattering about alligators. #
  • "Bernanke Wimps Out" by @NYTimeskrugman > http://nyti.ms/ktn9bf < (Blogs.NYTimes.com) #TheFed #
  • @edmontonjournal SideBar: if someone w/you is interested in a novel approach to public engagement, let me know! http://tl.gd/a49haa < in reply to edmontonjournal #
  • Theory: folk actually /do/ think about things, even when they don't respond. But they get distracted by popcorn, and the thought gets lost. #
  • @drgrist see see "What Motivates a Climate Skeptic?" by @Desmogblog > http://bit.ly/gUpLSY < #
  • Amazon's giving 5Gig of cloud storage?! > http://bit.ly/i76EbE < #Shiny #
  • @WindSector Fabulous. I'm treating the general problem: http://bit.ly/jJcynP < cc: @drgrist @chrismooney_ in reply to WindSector #
  • @dachoste "Wrath free of animosity" … once was on the list of virtues. ;-p cheers –ben p.s. C'mon bro', get a blog / homepage / something in reply to dachoste #
  • @joshstempel Sorry Josh, just now saw your @ and left you off CC for this: http://bit.ly/iQnnG3 < p.s. brand new: http://bit.ly/m4gOZ6 < in reply to joshstempel #
  • #OverHeard – A way to stimulate the experience of joy? "Pleasurable interruption of expectation" … wow. #
  • @drgrist Do we want media to filter against foil-helmet thinking? First they come for the nut cases, then the flakes, then for me. in reply to drgrist #
  • Dear @Amazon – I get one set of recommendations on .ca, and quite another on .com. Nice option, but ATM this is error. p.s. thanks for 5Gig! #
  • @participatory You've been tracking #ParticipatoryBudgeting Pretty geeky, but definitely foundational. #EGov #Gov2.0 in reply to participatory #
  • @publici What, you mean mandarins don't play nice? Shirley you jest! ;p in reply to publici #
  • "The democratisation of financial capital" > http://bit.ly/g7zxUa < via @gleonhard (I /hate/ the way HootSuite hijacks pages!) #
  • @GlenAllenWalken A headline I saw earlier: "Audience shrugged at Atlas". heh in reply to GlenAllenWalken #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Intermediating producer|consumer; great. Intermediating innovator|management? Still dark ages i.e. medieval dynamics. in reply to ChrisLaBossiere #
  • #CultureWars – I mean it: unless you've positioned/equipped yourselves as fully fledged free-lances, you're subject to loyalty tests. #GTD #
  • Anyone's money is good but when it comes to cred not all life experience is equal i.e. valuation is culture-bound. #DominantParadigm #GTD #
  • @WindSector Thanks for that. But IMNSHO fighting separate battles = "divide and be conquered". cc: @drgrist @chrismooney_ @joshstempel in reply to WindSector #
  • "Strategy w/o tactic: slow road to victory; tactic w/o strategy: fast lane to calamity." cc @WindSector @drgrist @chrismooney_ @joshstempel #
  • @WindSector Meh, no comment function? I wanted to add a link to the AJ Hoffman interview I posted. HeyHo in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector Just so. Yet "battles" must be in-formed by dynamics of the whole war. Goal fixation is a real cognitive phenomenon. #ArtOfWar in reply to WindSector #
  • Trust me, so long as there isn't true public discourse over issues of public policy, cynical wackos like Trump will en-thrall *cough* some. #

  • @WindSector I was happy in uniform, so "fighting for peace" *shrug* it ain't simple. ;-) But I mean it: 35yrs working on a strategic tool. in reply to WindSector #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Hey, I'll repeat it: good sync means that interrupt requests (geek software term) are handled gracefully. I.e. no sweat! in reply to ChrisLaBossiere #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere FWIW I'm really not talking about some semiotic crap. see http://bit.ly/mPqurh < (Straight talk loses me Followers! *G*) in reply to ChrisLaBossiere #
  • #CultureWars – In an ocean of glib, smug, superficial, vapid, false, glad-handing bilge, anything different is easily taken as rude/crude. #
  • #Innovation – It's easy to come up with applications of some new tech. But new tech comes from deep appreciation at a strategic level. #GTD #
  • "Becoming a Climate Pragmatist" > http://bit.ly/ebqUeC < via @WindSector #
  • You do marketing? Oh. I do logistics support. You program flash? Oh. I do MIL-SPEC tech_docs. You win the "attention" game? Oh. *shrug* #
  • #CultureWars – The existential manifests, inexorably. If you make a good living commenting or producing popcorn, then … excuse me, but … #
  • @firefox I'm all over it. BTW how's 4 coming along? (3.6.16 has been pretty reliable. I appreciate that.) in reply to firefox #
  • @firefox Sorry, I mis-read. Well no, actually: you pitched Panorama as though it was a plugin. cheers p.s. I'm allergic to new V. FF3's fine in reply to firefox #
  • @firefox I actually have an early 4 on deck. I should fire it up and let it update. stay well ^5 in reply to firefox #
  • #CivicEngagement – If my recordings had prospered I might have been distracted. If my "circles of 5" concept had taken off, same thing. #GTD #
  • #MTL #BOS Meh #
  • We do hard-rock mining to get gold ore. Do we do the same with #AcademicPublishing Oh … gee … wonder why. (We under-value thought.) #
  • I liked working in an R&D environment. We could kick back knowing that everyone had laser-like concentration operating. Maybe I got spoiled? #
  • @dpn Could as well be
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=CongenitalIdiots … cheers #
  • @znmeb Gadzooks. And yet … can we be surprised? IRC – attention + popcorn = Twitter. #
  • @CoachChic You get Don Cherry? He just said about Camilari on 1st goal what I was saying about Gill: poor positioning. Unbelievable. in reply to CoachChic #
