  • "Bob Woodward Calls Romney's Comments Unpresidential" > http://t.co/HB5gHG06 < Just what I'd call it. Mitt ain't no PotUS. #GOP #Republican #
  • @PBS Heads up: NewsHour YouTube audio is a) muddy, and b) down at least 6 dB. see http://t.co/gFgPhxhP < #
  • @thoughtstream "Explore" … active verb. I like them. One eye on heaven and one on the ground, ehh whot? :-) p.s. Habermas on human meaning in reply to thoughtstream #
  • @thoughtstream "http://t.co/PlNqvozT&quot; / "The antenna is you" = individual cognitive schema i.e. implicit knowledge => citizen as filter. in reply to thoughtstream #
  • @thoughtstream BTW that's my idea of humour. An old RF tech; an antenna's groundplane increases signal/noise ratio. haahaa? ;p in reply to thoughtstream #
  • @thoughtstream "Participational research" … did my brain just fart? Have I got that term wrong? Anyhow: "promoting subjective narrative". in reply to thoughtstream #
  • @thoughtstream SideBar re: Habermas – I used to blog about this sorta thing … once upon a time > http://t.co/MXYxdpLa < in reply to thoughtstream #
  • @thoughtstream Imagine corporate support from such as TIBCO > http://t.co/9L7PXUal < Is why I've strained for "decision support system". in reply to thoughtstream #
  • @thoughtstream re: "Motivational interviewing" – 1) returned to U to study opinions, formation and "conversation"; what opinions do / serve. in reply to thoughtstream #
  • @thoughtstream @thoughtstream re: "Motivational interviewing" 2) see "cognitive interview", methodology for LEO that surfaces facts. in reply to thoughtstream #
  • @ryderjaphy There's that "profound relaxation" stuff again! :-) in reply to ryderjaphy #
  • @thoughtstream There a shoal, hidden, as though a reef in plain sight: the points of contention must be //forensically// clear b4 ImplicitK. in reply to thoughtstream #
  • @thoughtstream Because just jawing has in and of itself social benefit, "ineffective" fades from view. Story and rhetoric swamp the point. in reply to thoughtstream #
  • Down-trodden, traditionally, vote in line with their bosses. G'ovt is the guard against tyranny? So: conservatives oppose gov't; some cheer. #
  • "Seduce me!" is the siren call. "Threaten me, or promise me gain!" … as though we're maggots or shitflies. #Borg is in our fabric. #
  • "Neither fear of threat, nor hope of promise" … that's corner-stone to juries. Who doesn't understand that? So what the hell is going on. #
  • Really upsetting what's happening in Syria. The sort of thing conservatives appreciate? family run business, after all. Plutocracy. #
  • @IdeaGov Yoiks, got past the Velvet Rope? Aaargh, you're going over to the Dark Side! Next, renting Lear for junket. in reply to IdeaGov #
  • Hmmmm … wondering … yaaa, I bet Putin would love it if Mitt got into the Oval Office. His people talkin'to his people, etc etc etc … #
  • @IdeaGov Money's just an instrument. Power … ahhhh power … the smell of fine cigars and old, old cognac. ;-) in reply to IdeaGov #
  • @IdeaGov p.s. / just for the record: I'm no sorta cynic. Not even a pessimist, really. in reply to IdeaGov #
  • @IdeaGov So hmmm sometimes what you see is mirage, and sometimes the stone wall is transparent. Ultimately it's tactic? Yaa, that. cheers in reply to IdeaGov #
  • #ImplicitKnowledge Just what you mean is unique to you; the reasons why you're thinking what you're thinking are unique to you. Quote me. ;) #
  • Listening to a tale of Russian state fraud involving a US investment banker. I warned about state criminals //before// the wall came down. #
  • @photomatt I can't tell you my favorite joke; it would seem insulting. But it's about a brick-layer who "isn't political". in reply to photomatt #
  • "Our job is not to get people to heaven. Our job is to prevent humanity from going to hell." –Kofi Annan #
  • Lemme take a pot-shot at this … Mitt figures that 46% of Americans are leeches? Hunh … the man's showing his true colors! #
  • heh … levers come and go; fulcrums are stable. Is what makes them fulcrums. They aren't "fun" or "entertaining". #AttentionEconomy #
  • @sg_williams Nice. JS Mill and I feel that way about conversation and opinions; talking things through (Not just "debate".) clarifies. in reply to sg_williams #
  • I trained airborne infantry because Russia was Stalinist. I left because yuppies overthrew democratic governments. Hence: "army of 1". #
  • @DirDigEng I just quoted Kofi Annan: http://t.co/AgG71eTF (He was on Charlie Rose a while back.) #CivilSociety in reply to DirDigEng #
  • @bbclysedoucet We too long ignored plutocracies. We're seeing the flash-back now in Syria. Russia … still unfolding. in reply to bbclysedoucet #
  • Oh, and BTW: yes, you do manifest your personal biases in what you do and how you act. That's #ImplicitKnowledge in action. #karma /*sigh*/ #
  • @bbclysedoucet We too long ignored plutocracies. We're seeing the back-flash now in Syria. Russia … still unfolding. in reply to bbclysedoucet #
  • The conservative disagreement with Obama is simple: they don't like black hippie liberals. Occam's razor. #
  • Conservative on PBS: "I like Romney's idea of opening the gates and letting things take their course. That would have worked better." #nutz #
  • The elephant in the room? banks and corporations will do what they can to screw the economy and people to get Obama out. #plutocracy #borg #
  • @1_eddie DM to you. Looks like some SPAMmer is spoofing your identity. #
  • @PBS RFE: Sidebar includes panel for Rundown, and a link to 2009/12/what-is-the-rundown.html but none to /newshour/rundown/ ! Add pls. #
  • @marksnaith More than "use"! see my http://t.co/yIxqT3Df < I've been on a parallel track since … since 1976! It's about democracy yaa? in reply to marksnaith #
  • @marksnaith I've always imagined a discourse tool that would enable such as @HASTAC, or #MOOC Or municipal councils. cc: @ThoughtStream #
  • @bradneuberg M <==> Energy. And something like anti-particles are in the books. But "pressure" is a diff thing i.e. it's a differential. in reply to bradneuberg #
  • @RedaLearning Hello – You might want to add URL for you Tumblr to profile bio! cheers #
  • @NaomiAKlein HiYa – see Charlie Rose recent for tale of Russian criminality (police, courts, etc) and theft of corp assets / death of lawyer in reply to NaomiAKlein #
  • heh … "Randomize message": Wise owls tweet with #HootSuite " http://t.co/nc5LuZJt #
  • @RedaLearning Oh my. Reg'd to get whitepaper. Was asked to reg again. Tweeted. Then install some sort of PDF convertor?! Oh no, no no … #
  • "Learning management system (LMS) is no longer the centre of the universe" > http://t.co/i5yoH0h7 < #MOOC #
  • @bradneuberg :) If ever I could get my project to launch I'd gladly revisit Dancing WuLi Masters and all that! Fascinatin' stuff. cheers in reply to bradneuberg #
  • "Trillions of Dollars in Bank Bailouts: Socialism for the Rich?" > http://t.co/sfPJNKuK < (PBS "Rundown") #
  • @bradneuberg Ayep, that's the book! Say, you should spider http://t.co/YkwkLuwP … Dreams of Reason … awesome mind / terrible sad loss. in reply to bradneuberg #
  • @bradneuberg I recall UR work w/Dougl Engelbart. I called him; had a great chat. "Discourse-based decision support" =more= in reply to bradneuberg #
  • @bradneuberg As army of 1 I've been steathy. (Paranoid? <G>) > http://t.co/ZNBZpvfa < see +Protension | http://t.co/fCL8FUeo < in reply to bradneuberg #
  • @bradneuberg Oh hey, here's what I think is gem: "meaning" isn't a point; it acts like strange attractor. Concepts traject orbits around it! in reply to bradneuberg #
  • @bradneuberg p.s. lovely bit of functionality: http://t.co/4B30SXdw < see @MarkSnaith _et al_ #Discourse in reply to bradneuberg #
  • @bradneuberg BTW did you notice "Stet", the comment system for GPLv3? @Gitorious has made that part of their system. DogFood! in reply to bradneuberg #
  • As I kid I was RadOp/SigInt CommTech (Can't mention crypto, nope nope!) Today I see lotsa "fun". Function? /*shrug*/ #AttentionEconomy #borg #
  • @RedaLearning BTW "document this site!" is on my ToDo list. > http://t.co/Sx0PH7rJ < Lovely near-singlepage referencing. Doc3.0? :-) cheers in reply to RedaLearning #
  • @bradneuberg Yuh know, "negative pressure" threw me. Repulsion … anti-gravity … yaa, that's much clearer. in reply to bradneuberg #
  • @bradneuberg Given that ?what? 95% of cosmic mass is "black", there's /something/ going on we don't know anything about! in reply to bradneuberg #
  • "Decision making in situations of uncertainty" … how am I possibly supposed to win in #AttentionEconomy Not /everything/'s trivial. #
  • 40yrs talkin' social justice to yuppies. I say they're as though heartless. You'll just contradict? "Pure Intentions" > http://t.co/UC9t3XQ9 #
  • Elementals are simple: conventional modes of conversation filter. 80% of folk don't notice; 10% don't mind. Last 10%? Ah… cc: @BradNeuberg #
  • I can understand why most of you avoid ironic lucidity like the plague: it moves us to imagine a better world. And that's not "fun". #
  • Here's "rude": far harder for me to stand my ground with you all than to man arms in the streets of Aleppo. I'd much rather be there. #borg #
  • What the major problem in #Syria Simple: the youth generation of Alawite have tasted yuppie culture. So they understand little / care less. #
  • Oh, and yes, if I believed in a "God" I'd definitely be Muslim. Islam has a comprehensive understanding of social justice. #GoFigure #
  • p.s. how caustic is yuppie culture? it's castrated Buddhadharma … that's an accomplishment! #
  • "Since you're so lame, how come you're so rich?" That's an existential question. The one you avoid day in, day out. #PretenderSyndrome #
  • "Revolutionaries" inevitably look to A-list pundits. Anyone … colonialism much? Gawd … much better drinking in a biker bar. #
  • Elementals are simple: conventional modes of conversation filter. 80% of folk don't notice; 10% don't mind. Last 10%? Ah, well … #Nice #
  • @znmeb A-list rants become memes. Others need not apply. Is the dynamic: cold-shoulder communicates very, very well. #borg in reply to znmeb #
  • Oh, you didn't notice that Twitter and such is merely about passing tokens? Do tell: didn't notice? don't care? suits you fine? #borg #
  • @ryderjaphy heehee … "cutting against the grain" is what I grew up with. Abhidharma communicated, "Yes, you too. So join the human race." in reply to ryderjaphy #
  • Don't get me wrong: I trust you as individuals. It's just that you repeatedly resign your integrity, multiple times each day. #Avoidance #
  • The last meeting I took on social justice with "conventional progressives": penthouse … long-stemed wine glasses … vista. 35yrs ago. #
  • @AndyJeanius "Stinginess" is still diplomatic. Euphemistic. It's a mix of resentful hard-heartedness, denial, and jaded sophistication. in reply to AndyJeanius #
  • Why I talk about "implicit knowledge" and why it matters: you know perfectly well how daily like sucks. But you're in denial. You avoid. #
  • … so of course it makes perfect sense that you avoid me. I'm advocating everything you're evading. Q: how come you act like vampires? #
  • Oh, and BTW no, you aren't actually allergic to truth and integrity. You've been conditioned. You're just going along, like "nice people". #
  • What's "social" about "social media"? The way it propagates, imposes, and perpetuates mores about "nice" and "polite". #AttentionEconomy #
