  • @jamiebillingham That image fm Rittel/Webber? Nice use of "reconcile"; to collapse the waves. Convince, compel, coerce, conquer. !discourse in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • @nigelcameron "There is no try, GlasHoppa!" :-) Mangalam! p.s. see Chuang Tsu and the tortoise in reply to nigelcameron #
  • @jamiebillingham If you find that meme useful, "Peter Principle" is a very well grounded popularization of social pathology. #ideology in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • @jamiebillingham I'm a grunt. I spent 25yrs on the problem. I only found a hard-ball method/technique that can be operationalized. So sad. in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • Simply: it's a matter of locating the problem in personal terms. Some of us have: http://t.co/TYNjrdiH < cc: @jamiebillingham #
  • p.s. Marcuse managed to miss the mark, with "society". Like RDLaing, I talk about family and neighbors and co-workers. cc: @jamiebillingham #
  • What can do more damage than to talk about collaboration in a way that promotes self-serving practices? That's my cohort. That's #yuppie #
  • @jamiebillingham Take #2 was that image of text by Rittel & Webber? (BTW it was huge … 3400 X something). in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • I'm clumsy: when I find a passage that's significant, I type it out and post it to myself. Smarter folk take a snapshot, and lose it. #
  • @jamiebillingham Context: post-Chile techie, I studied psych in this era: http://t.co/FCXDeBe4 < I watched my cohort. I paid attention. #
  • "What product would "self-actualizers" choose?" And you think you're doing a fine thing, studying marketing, right? "Feckless" is too kind. #
  • @jamiebillingham Even a cup of tea can be a distraction. "Why do we do what we do?" is what I started with. Motive. Orientation. in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • @jamiebillingham Yes, I realize it was a phone pic. Take #3 is that by Rittel/Webber? Attribution / cite pls. in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • Conservatives tanked the economy just before Obama took office. And O didn't come up with a magic wand. So GOP should take power. /*blink*/ #
  • @jamiebillingham I got link to pic. I got link to PDF. I have PDF. "Yes" or "no" would settle it. in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • @jamiebillingham Jamie? Just wanted to know if that pic was from PDF you linked to. Folk don't usually take pics of PDFs on screen. in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • @jamiebillingham Holy crap I'm totally lost. "Is pic of text from the PDF you linked to" … I'm lost … so sorry for being so stupid. bye in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • @jamiebillingham Yes, must rush to turn everything off immediately. "Yes" is just far, far more than I deserve. Or "no". Not my pay grade. in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • I just want to die. Folk are insufferably rude. #
  • @jamiebillingham I didn't lose context! I knew what it was in reply to! How did asking for cite show that I was blithering idiot?! gawwd in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • Do I wish I was like you, self-entered solipsists? It would certainly make things a whole lot easier. But then I'd be suicidal, so … #
  • @jamiebillingham Exactly. So "yes" to clear question would have been effective. "Enlightened self-interest" remains always an option. in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • Here's a joke: was going to take hardware from mediocre game-box and re-purpose as a great work station. But really: what's the f'n point. #
  • Breaking news: gasoline is getting expensive. Now, one more time, tell me why yuppies are so obscenely wealthy? Fools … greedy fools. #
  • BTW what you spend in an evening out is what so many spend on their whole family in a month. Nothing new here. Just worse and worse … #
  • What I learned early on: having pals in the circuit was 10X more valuable than being known for good work. Yuppies are basically corrupt. #
  • We create narrative for what we experience. Someone indulges our self-serving foolishness? That becomes our story line. Sad, nae? #
  • @davegray Sorry, I mustn't be in on that joke. (I've seen bids wired; only might know what you mean.) cc: @ifenn @dszuc @russu in reply to davegray #
  • @milosraonic Hope you have a moment to Tweet sometime this weekend! and congrats! #
  • What 1 in 10 MilSim pals realize: I suffer assholes not at all/never, but suffer pricks patiently so long as intention can be directed. #
  • @nigelcameron Stuff like Virgin Atlantic gives us something to talk about without requiring anything like ironic sanity. cc: @CrashingPlate in reply to nigelcameron #
  • @stephencrose Let's say we realize that. How to proceed? a set of blog posts. a small series of newspaper articles. a wiki? Point, yes? in reply to stephencrose #
  • @timoreilly Ironic, watching how chat and "social media" actually impede paradigm shift. As though A-list nonchalantly move to the front. in reply to timoreilly #
  • Want to know what mind-fuck is? @FireFox is mind-fuck. Some of us remember. Most don't. And few want to think. But it's junk. #regression #
  • Just to blurt: Dems are bullshitters … like most folk. GOP conservatives are dangerously delusional. So how about grow up. It's serious. #
  • @davegray "Minding" is what I do. "Bother" it wasn't. "Muppets" is jargon I haven't heard for yrs and yrs. stay well ^5 in reply to davegray #
  • @davegray p.s. if you meant "muppet" as fool or jackass, then yaa: bother it was. Gawd but I loathe yuppies! cc: @ifenn @dszuc @russu in reply to davegray #
  • @davegray p.s. I give muppets enough rope. I proceeded as though you actually had something to say. in reply to davegray #
  • If you want sensitivity, look at yuppies. Their in-group smarmy bullshit is an exquisite dance of social subtlety … like a circle-jerk. #
  • @brainpicker Enh … a contrivance. If you aren't thinking you cannot select what to read and what to leave aside. in reply to brainpicker #
  • @jamiebillingham Beyond "chat" a lot is existential. I can price my solution only according to how others value the problem. HeyHo #borg #
  • What I noticed post-military is that you're all playing one big mind-fuck circle-jerk. So, if success means joining you, then … #FAIL #
  • @elephantjournal Let's see you do something on the annual Rainbow Gathering … 40yrs now? in reply to elephantjournal #
  • @waylonlewis Oh, nice to see that Waylon … at least some questioning. AFAIK winners work things into the zone of plausible deniability. in reply to waylonlewis #
  • The more I see of Mardy Fish, the less I like Mardy Fish. #tennis #USOpen #
  • @briansolis Thing I find most political? Block. To have someone unBlock you, you really need some serious drag. #Ratchet in reply to briansolis #
  • @deadmau5 Nice sync. I just included link to your Live on this, about BurningMan: http://t.co/UIxb3tO0 < in reply to deadmau5 #
  • Just got pointed to a (fairly decent) video from Burning Man. Bored within moments. Like my cohort bores me. Sooooo clehvar. #superficial #
  • @buzz Sorry to see that's what holds @kellan's attention, but not surprised. "To thine own self be uhhhhhh …" #karma in reply to buzz #
  • @newmediajim Cook Islands. Cook Islands … hunh. So tell me Jim, who else picked up on that wee detail? :-) Enjoy bro'! in reply to newmediajim #
  • @brainpicker … simpler: learn a tune you like on an instrument you feel comfie with. Then stand on a corner, playing it. And watch. :-) in reply to brainpicker #
  • @newmediajim Findest kinda stuff. (I'm not strong enough to sherpa, so learned sound. heh) Fair winds! cc: @internrandy in reply to newmediajim #
  • @dkohlenstein Sorry, not "in reply to" so lost context. Someone needs to learn how to dress … Mardy Fish on #USOpen ;p in reply to dkohlenstein #
  • @newmediajim What, I should admit to dawg-lazy?! "Work smart, not hard!" p.s. throw me a hint: whatcha workin' on? in reply to newmediajim #
  • @deadmau5 w00f in reply to deadmau5 #
  • @newmediajim Oh. Right. Sorry. I've been distracted. #USOpen No no no I mean RNC in FL. Yaa, that. ;p in reply to newmediajim #
  • @TennisChannel That's funny: found your site watching Fish. Thought how you could use Twitter live. Last tweet: 3hrs ago. C'mon; get real. #
  • Day by day (No major surprise!) #USOpen has become more dramatic. Fish VS Simon #
  • @MilosRaonic – Simon … yaa? There is tactic. And there is strategy. Every moment opens the door to both. It is up to us to choose. :-) #
  • We cultivate partiality. A warrior society cultivates responsiveness to truth. So, how are you? really? #
  • Imagine a myth that unifies and consolidates society. Sounds good to you? Oh … I thought the emancipation project was about escaping myth. #
  • OMG our @MilosRaonic is up against Andy Murray next? Tell me if it ain't so. #USOpen #
  • Anybody who's really a player knows it comes down to the psychopath on your block. Win? no problem. Get outta the room with the $? Well … #
  • @Firefox – FF is not a flakey browser. Flakey. Nuts. Insane. Unreliable. You don't care? Well, there's the base cause of your problems. #
  • Here … to show how dumb you are: best way of hiding a great lie is to let yuppies like you get close. You throw up so much dust and smoke. #
  • Existentially: if you came face to face with a great truth you'd be concerned about not pissing yourself. And not much more. That's it. #
  • @GlenAllenWalken Roundabouts hunh. I just tweeted about how yuppies crave distraction. A variant of plausible deniability. in reply to GlenAllenWalken #
  • @eprenen "Make" a FB account? "Make"? Do you "make" accounts? I have a lot of accounts, on various systems. I "made" none of them. in reply to eprenen #
  • @jamiebillingham CBC's been good for decades. Week after week, for decades. http://t.co/FCXDeBe4 < in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • How to jerk people around? Give them what they think they want. Is why I'm a loser: I don't suck up to you buncha wankers. /*D'uhh.*/ #
  • @kanaafa 2nd century wisdom refactored as fortune-cookie tweets? 4th struggle: to confront an abject absence of integrity. in reply to kanaafa #
  • @TaiChiBillSmith Enh … rewording strips the elegance away. Sophomoric instead of haiku discipline. You yuppies need self-esteem. in reply to TaiChiBillSmith #
  • @nigelcameron Yaaaa, opening a boutique is evidence of "genius" … Jesus H freakin' Christ you folk are brain-damaged. in reply to nigelcameron #
  • Here's why you matter: if ever you happened to meet a good person, you put sticks in his or her wheels. You serve the psychopaths. Simply. #
  • Of course you pay attention to "social media" .. plausible pretext for avoiding thought, and conscience, and intuition, and principle. #
  • @gsiemens Pretoria hunh. I remember helping get a theatre group up here to Edmonton. "Sizwe Bansi is Dead" … Athol Fugard. Doing the work. in reply to gsiemens #
  • @Ziggy_Daddy Gonna have to let you go. I rant, but I'm not patient with that sorta rambling. in reply to Ziggy_Daddy #
  • What I realized, 19yrs old (1973; read a fucking book) was what you valued most of all: plausible deniability. You're just greedy crooks. #
  • How brain-dead are yuppies? Ad says "Make it movie night" and shows video of kids playing. Yes. Play video fiction. Not make reality. Dead. #
  • @themindfullife How pathetic. in reply to themindfullife #
  • @waylonlewis Your cheese-cake "Labor Day" post … my instinct was right: Boulder yuppies are the worst of a bad crowd. #
  • @waylonlewis p.s. yaaa right, it's a joke … humor … and I have no sense of humor. Hey, pile on, jack-ass. #
  • @waylonlewis Wow, "four more beers" is what you rely on to market your journal? Pretty lame fella … wa'sup? you owe money to the mob? in reply to waylonlewis #
  • Think I'm kidding about yuppies being toxic?! Peek @waylonlewis and http://t.co/kvbPHkiO < What yuppies' kidz produce when they're enabled. #
  • @nik But fact remains that Andreesen _et al_ have lost touch with their roots. Cost of doing business, I know, but … cc: @bhorowitz in reply to nik #
  • @gsiemens heehee that's funny: for so many years I've been going on about #OpenAccess now you use Twitter for sneaker-net. Ironic, nae? in reply to gsiemens #
  • Know what happens when you stop lusting for distraction? You put things together, 7 things at a time. I'm slow. You're crooked. It's diff. #
  • Maybe you're pissed or stoned or asleep. Fine whatevuh. I'm watching proceedings of the Supreme Court. I think of it as tennis. Or snooker. #
  • @kanaafa Well my brain stops with "I am not them". I'm so slow and lame I go with the Buddha's epistemology concerning dualism. be well in reply to kanaafa #
  • @gsiemens Oh, I was just being cranky … frustrated social psychologist. ;) best in reply to gsiemens #
  • @davegray And I was just being cranky. That the game is "fixed" offends me. Truly. HeyHo in reply to davegray #
  • #USOpen – Why does Roddick smash right back to Fognini? It's cost him already … might cost him again. #tennis #
  • Got a contact high watching Andy Roddick … body memory of extreme tension / nerves from competitive archery. Not pleasant! #
  • Roddick, goes through to round of 16 … not easy match, but glorious. #USOpen #tennis #
  • @alexdc Am I seeing this sort of thing tweeted more often recently? A while back it was "mean bosses are seen as more decisive" etc … in reply to alexdc #
  • Reading something I wrote in '08 on the psychology of popular culture. Nobody cared then. Nobody cares today. Ok, so … now what? #
  • @jamiebillingham In notes from '08; "Accidental Algorithms; strange family probes boundary easy / hard problems" http://t.co/gxkk0w7E < in reply to jamiebillingham #
  • Re-arranging deck chairs on Titanic? A-list pundits editorialize as things go to hell; no real activity involved. #AttentionEconomy #
  • It's the ham & eggs of realpolitk: one class gets wealthy by being "involved" while most folk suffer from being engaged. #
  • @alexdc Here's one I scoped from behind FT pay-wall > http://t.co/fXYh4AZK < Why the good go bad. in reply to alexdc #
  • @alexdc Here's one I scooped from behind FT pay-wall > http://t.co/fXYh4AZK < Why the good go bad. in reply to alexdc #
  • Politically we're driven to seem absolutely right. Existentially, requirement is to be absolutely clear. Apples / oranges. #ProblemSolving #
  • #CFL #Esks – Just in: Joseph to start against Calgary. #
  • @CrystalClear Boy, there's a name I haven't heard for yrs and yrs! in reply to CrystalClear #
