  • #YEG What I've been saying about climate change since I studied it early 80s: biggest thing's unpredictabilty / instability. This is summer? #
  • If you want to diagnose our social ills, just go into an online community and act genuine. Honest. Frank. You'll see. Our society is foul. #
  • @gerrycramer Know what I used to con uh-ehr to convince myself? "An hour before midnight's worth 2 after" … so I trim back, bit by bit. in reply to gerrycramer #
  • #Harper #Conservatives – Radio Canada Int'l shortwave service snuffed. It was costing 34c per citizen. Conservatives are assholes. Truly. #
  • Intention matters, in Racing Regulations, not just compass direction. Both count … (cont) > http://t.co/iMH9n1ED < cc: @SailX @Only1jmck #
  • Cheats use tricks. But, if they stay calm, honest people have flexibility. "That offends me" counts. "That you don't care offends me too". #
  • How to "find fault" as a friend? Double-standards are toxic. "Zero tolerance" is too often warning that bullies run the show. How to help? #
  • @znmeb … this maybe worries me even more than "sentiment analysis" for SEO/marketing types. /*judder*/ in reply to znmeb #
  • @gerrycramer Well this old X-ariborne X-hippie zennie ain't big on will power. Not by itself. Deal with the bio part, too. No late coffee! in reply to gerrycramer #
  • @mat_witts Uhh … pondering … ummm, no? Not "like trusting the bullies" but "trust the bullies friends". Psychopaths / sycophants. :-) in reply to mat_witts #
  • @Edmonton_Biz Well I'm hardly going to agree that "social" is in some way wrong, or toxic, or a bad influence. Good grief no. But pseudo … in reply to Edmonton_Biz #
  • #YEG – How many of you experience some sort of gag reflex at the thought of #Zen I'm afraid only the worst are now attracted. #
  • @grumpyzen You know, there's a very reliable internal timer. Because it's subjective and personal, it's always spot on. cc: @InsightTimer in reply to grumpyzen #
  • #Gedanken – Think "online community"; let your worst thoughts surface. Now, ain't that society in general? "Aversion" is response to taboo. #
  • @AJStream See etymology of "religion". A system, an over-arching ordering. Something that in-forms. cc: @Kierancon @MuslimIQ @kaimatai in reply to AJStream #
  • @AJStream BTW I recently touched on "taboo". Once internalized, taboo doesn't move us to say, "Oh, that's taboo!" It's deeper. Live averson. in reply to AJStream #
  • "I think bliss-ninnies have a bad effect" … no way for me to say that without terrible consequences. Not in a tweet, nor in an essay. #YEG #
  • @sourcePOV I regret my DSS didn't get deployed. Side benefit: it can map out such as history of plans for health policy. HeyHo #Forensics in reply to sourcePOV #
  • @Edmonton_Biz /*phew!*/ Truth? I really bit my tongue; partiality cuz you're local; don't lilke aggrevating. But yes! Major diff! :-) –ben in reply to Edmonton_Biz #
  • @Edmonton_Biz Odd. Tried to DM you "Oh-woops! Hadn't Followed you!" Now Twitter says /you/ don't Follow //me//! haaaha! cheers #
  • Imagine: you suddenly flash insight that the person whom you love actually/truly loves you. Now: generalize that warmth. #Karuma #Maitri #
  • I keep remembering FS-X, and #VATSIM air traffic control. And I look at my 3.2GHz game box. And I think … yes, but … And that's it! #
  • @Edmonton_Biz I'm perfect. Nobody likes me. /me gazes upon bowl of worms. huh huh p.s. I want to DM you. You do local YCombinator stuff? in reply to Edmonton_Biz #
  • How to debunk "Ideas aren't worth anything" in 1 step: think of a treasure map. There, done. (Meaning: navigators hold the key, not pirates) #
  • @paddyscullion Some chance filter is culprit: check your spam box for something from @sailx … simplest problem. ^5 in reply to paddyscullion #
  • @sailx (Can you track "In Reply To" with your Twitter client?) You might want to check into some code sharings sites. The best are truly ace in reply to sailx #
  • I grew up thinking the Boer War was just. Actually Rhodes and the Brtish invaded an independent nation. Then put women/children into camps. #
  • @Edmonton_Biz see above; I tried to DM you. Some glitch. As for YCombinator: google! It's a major big deal. cheers –ben in reply to Edmonton_Biz #
  • #YEG – Quick! Look out your window! Massive rainbow S/SE! #
  • @Edmonton_Biz I can't recall anything but decent DM performance. Lemme try again. in reply to Edmonton_Biz #
  • @Edmonton_Biz No joy. Mutual Follow, but cannot DM. cc: @Twitter @Support #
  • @Caroline_Roche In fact and actually even for the longest of technical documents (i.e. 750pgs) yes. Not just "start at", but "read backwards in reply to Caroline_Roche #
  • @Edmonton_Biz But connections via such as Twitter is connections with a small sub-set … self-selected. Def sub-optimal! cc: @M_Bellers in reply to Edmonton_Biz #
  • @Edmonton_Biz – W/respect to the authentic souls out there: social media promotes the most glib, the most facile. Deff sub-optimal! #
  • @HeidiCRoseberry SE, yes? From horizon to horizon, from here. Due south that rainbow was as bright as a neon sign. cc: @Dartt in reply to HeidiCRoseberry #
  • @HeidiCRoseberry It's only just barely visible still … due south. cc: @dart in reply to HeidiCRoseberry #
  • #AmericasCup #Sailing – This came on TV while I was thinking of … guess what. Decision Support System for Sail Racing Regulations. #karma #
  • @SailX – I just watched #AmericasCup Italy. And, thanks to you, it was about 500 times as interesting! Now I understand the tactical details #
  • I often ask questions I know the answer to. Point is: to find out what the other person thinks. Of course. (How could you not know that?) #
  • @Caroline_Roche Say, here's something: google cog-psych for "pop up". Truth. My eye would be drawn to part of the page. "Oh! Look! Error!" in reply to Caroline_Roche #
  • @Edmonton_Biz Generalize that, if you will. Imagine: the aim become to win the argument, rather than find truth. To win 80/20, not quality. in reply to Edmonton_Biz #
  • @Edmonton_Biz Tech_docs is my ballast. To convey information, not to impress. I.e zero #AttentionEconomy maximum cognitive ergonomics. in reply to Edmonton_Biz #
  • How crazed is American right wing? "Fast and furious" makes Nixon's Watergate "look like child's play". Anti-rational booschwa. #
  • Dear Jon Stewart – No, American Cons will never find Fox New's stupidity stupid. They're brain damaged. That's the point. #
  • @sailx NB: My "code sharing" tweet was in reply to your tweet about getting folk to help with FB app. Coding is deff not my department! ;-) in reply to sailx #
  • @Edmonton_Biz "Tried"? No joy? Odd … http://t.co/8QGRoKEt it the most obvious start. But there's lots to it; it's a big deal. in reply to Edmonton_Biz #
  • @LifeAligned "Give away" may not be revealiging / edifying. Surrender in effect yes, but it's hardly a conscious choice. "In effect" … in reply to LifeAligned #
  • @LifeAligned "Easier" to be self-reliant? Oh my … I cannot agree. In fact easier to be just a grown up; more demnding to be mature adult. in reply to LifeAligned #
  • @aptviator I may have lost sync here … looked, but did not find mention. You mean the Reply I sent? Have luv autop for yrs and yrs! in reply to aptviator #
  • @Twitter – Your new format "You have a new Follower" is far less useful than previous EMail notification. #regression cc: @Support #
  • @drgrist That's at the very core of my take on realpolitik … is why I went back to U in my 40s to do cog- and social psych, and poli-sci. in reply to drgrist #
  • @Twitter – Why are DMs not loading? cc: @Support #
  • @LifeAligned "it's much easier & powerful to learn to trust ourselves more" is what I responded to. Powerful? Indeed. Easy? Ooh-woo, no. :-) in reply to LifeAligned #
  • @LifeAligned Yes. Indeed. As I'd put it, losing authenticity means losing touch with source of inspiration … finest energy of all! ^5 in reply to LifeAligned #
  • @Edmonton_Biz (DMs bugged again.) Wait a minute: Silver Dart? You from CB? I worked at Bell Museum … had land near Iona. Barra Glenn Road. #
  • @jianghomeshi Yuh know there's a video of Gabriel and Bush doing "Don't Give Up". Chokes me up everytime, that song does. ^5 #
  • #YEG – This evening: 5th Annual North Country Fair Afterbender! > http://t.co/dbQ39JiF < (FB) #
  • Right wing is always against more gov't. But always for harsher punishments. Too often right wing = brain damaged troglodytes. #
  • @wadhwa Link, please! in reply to wadhwa #
  • @Megan Familiar with "cognitive interview"? Flip-side: very easy to increase suppression of "taboo" material. Even to implant false memories in reply to Megan #
  • @ChrisTse_ //Ruptured//?! Good heavens … takes some serious effort to do that. (I had both heels shattered. Saw purple flames in my head.) in reply to ChrisTse_ #
  • @Megan Segway polo?! Ooh, wonderful! Alternative: apply Sailing Rules for Racing with segway :-) in reply to Megan #
  • @Firefox – Flash still fails in FF14.9 … see http://t.co/3179MdVw for example. meh. Meh, I say. #
  • @ChrisTse_ Yupperz. I can walk w/o the slightest limp … but it costs me. cheers p.s. Tai Chi is wonderful for balance mechanisms in feet. in reply to ChrisTse_ #
  • get.your.groove.on Chingy "U A Freak; Nasty Girl" (instrumental) http://t.co/KAsmS1uw #
  • see also http://t.co/NFVe1zqg #
  • Want tantra?! yaa? yaaa?! Loop 2Pac "California". Just do it. #
  • _let me *tell you something good*_ http://t.co/1oLetDIw #
  • @TaraBusch smile :-) #
  • @Ziggy_Daddy FWIW I just tweeted 3 … Ching, 2Pac, and Chaka Khan. cheers in reply to Ziggy_Daddy #
  • I do believe … love will come set me free. http://t.co/3tWtxzco #
  • @JohnFMoore I've used #forensic to signify#EvidenceBasedAnalysis … then segue to #DiscourseBasedDecisionSupport cc: @digiphile @wjhuie in reply to JohnFMoore #
  • @bentrem p.s. authoritarians love AI; no door for redress. Expert systems, OTOH, are social constructs. cc: @JohnFMoore @digiphile @wjhuie in reply to bentrem #
  • Haven't really had any summer heat here yet.
    My mind's on temperature. > http://t.co/BiklK3s0 < #
  • p.s. while I was studying how psychopaths manipulate civil society you were feathering your nest and flattering your ego … and theirs, too #
  • @Ziggy_Daddy … I've done sound for decades, k? Hippie stuff, but jazz … even symphony. !j/k … but 2Pac and Chingy? Amazing potent! in reply to Ziggy_Daddy #
  • Tact and diplomacy: pretending not to notice or understand other persons' communicative gestures. And of course I'm pressured to do that. #
