  • @USRealityCheck They ain't just fishing, they'z doin': all sorts of thin-film photo-voltaics, mass production for solar heating arrays … #
  • @dan_munz I'd add this to @digiphile's suggestion: come up to speed with one of the libraries. jQuery seems pret'near default these days. #
  • #WSH ties it with 1:00 left. How many times that happened this week, 3? 4? more? #NHL #
  • When someone says, "Good ideas are a dime a dozen" you know your IP is in danger. #
  • @jianghomeshi – Bruce missed his point: it isn't just the blood that's fake in WWE; everything about it is phoney. UFC's quite the opposite. #
  • @charlvn If you don't think the value of a business is strongly linked to the idea then you think the earth is flat. That's just dumb. in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn The transistor came from an idea. So did LSI. I suggest a good strong head shake. in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn W/respect that sounds wise but it's just silly, as if good ideas just fall from trees. To me it's glib and not entirely innocent. in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn Eistein was joking! Get real … in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn Ok, gotcha now: individuals engaged in intellectual research for innovation are just ditch diggers. Glad we cleared that up. in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn Following the design principle through the twist and turns of a long dev process: value $0.00 … you're silly. in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn "There's two sides to the argument." Gee golly, you don't say. You're so kind. *not!* In fact there are far more than 2. #fractal in reply to charlvn #
  • Show me someone who thinks "good ideas are a dime a dozen" I'll show you someone who's never followed a thought for more than 5secs. #
  • @charlvn "Ditch-diggers" do implementation, steered along the way with managers, who follow plan by architect, who actualize idea. Team. in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn "I dunno." =$0. "Good idea." = $0. "Ooh nice, ok" = $0. "Wow, that's elegant" = $0. "OMG! Where did that come from?! = $0. #Sihly in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn "many a true word is spoken in jest", and probably more spoken as trifling sophistry, when not used to bookmark outright lies. in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn Diminishing returns on shrinking tubes (aka "valves"). "Wait a minute, let's produce a valve effect using a different architecture! in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn As with radio and modems, key was to understand that modulation was key, not method. Hence FM and PSK. in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn Actually and really, synthesis can and does take place in a moment of insight. But /years/ preparing for that moment. #StopTrifling in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn "they can't lay claim to our discoveries"?! But there are no discoveries. And there are no claims. #StopTrifling in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn So nobody gets rewarded for producing any component; everybody gets paid for the completed item. #Sihly in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn "made by the scientists and technologists, not managers" … you're wey too patronizing. bah-bye now. #PlainObvious in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn My point is obviously that IP is the seed that grows into the end product. Obviously. C'mon … hold a thought for more than a mo'. in reply to charlvn #
  • "Seeds are worthless. Plants are worthless. Grain is worthless. Flour is worthless. Only finished product has value." #JustPlainLameBrained #
  • @charlvn BTW Einstein failed to implement and deploy his relativity theory … and just a heap of ideas that he got from others. #Duhhhhh in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn p.s. spooling obvious "clehvur" counters aint' worth much. It's certainly nothing like authentic thought. #Sophistry #Cynicism in reply to charlvn #
  • "how tech companies base their profit model on the ability to model and manipulate human behaviour" > http://bit.ly/iwSIdI < (MindHacks.com) #
  • "Metaphors of Organisation – Part 1" > http://bit.ly/jC4dMo < #
  • @baratunde Did you know that @EmilyBell was also on CBC Radio1 recently? "Mother Corporation" is firing on all cylinders! in reply to baratunde #
  • @charlvn "Let's leave the argument"? First you patronize, then you unFollow. Try honesty … just an "idea". in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn "You can't have the one and not the other so it's not justified to downplay either." a) non sequitor, and b) nonsense. in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn #Paradigm – 3 men each dig a trench. Value? Depends on the idea that they're implementing. #HaveAThoughtSomeTimeJustForFun in reply to charlvn #
  • @charlvn Basically you just spool replies like a vending machine. Not authentically present; patronizing. The unFollow? That was authentic. in reply to charlvn #
  • #AttentionEconomy is real; boobs draw, so they are "valued". You can mitigate that, or you can swim along, thinking naught but gain. *shrug* #
  • @charlvn You patronize, repeatedly. I notice, and comment on the fact. You take that as "personal attack". Yes … you would. #Parrot in reply to charlvn #
  • #YEG – Actually warm! (Did groceries after voting.) Soooo glad I finally got myself a good juicer. #
  • @digitalzendo Sticking point comes to mind: to even /talk/ about kensho seems, to me, to be claiming achievement. So heh … *grin* __{*}__ in reply to digitalzendo #
  • Well, Cat is at the vet's. I did some exploratory JinShiShuitsu late night: his butt is packed solid. No big deal, but darlin' is wey old. #
  • @Hermida I'm just editing her interview w/CBC1, in the style of http://bit.ly/m4gOZ6 … will let you know. (Real soon now. *G*) in reply to Hermida #
  • @charlvn Uhhh … ok … forensic detail noted. *blink* "Meaning" was what we, as individuals, project onto the facts. As ideas arise. in reply to charlvn #
  • Breadth / Salience; #AttentionEconomy moots these. In 15yrs WWW, 30yrs online, I see folk as like magpies. And witness demands for wealth. #
  • @Hermida Context: in the 70s, while running MCR for CBC, I would clip audio for slide-tape shows. I've seen refined tech, but not discourse. in reply to Hermida #
  • I'm not suggesting that you should feel humiliated. But the way you respond to #Shiny Yaa, that's good reason for feeling humiliated. #
  • #nutrition – My 1st ever 7veg through the juicer thing. OMG. /And/ pulp for soup tomorrow! *wh00h000!* #
  • @digitalzendo Mmmm well, yes, actually. Something mmmmm un-folksy about that formulation. Kick the addiction to BS, yes of course. in reply to digitalzendo #
  • @MindDeep Sitting with the sound of tea sitting in the cup, waiting … every breath a sip … _ne plus ultra_! ;-p __{*}__ in reply to MindDeep #
  • Actually I kinda like that: "What is the sound of one cup of tea, waiting?" cc: @MindDeep #
  • @Ogmin One eye on the funnel, one eye on the bathtub … some crazy-real mindfulness practice! stay well in reply to Ogmin #
  • #NHL – Dear #BOS … don'do that, k? Not with #PHI … no no no … #
