  • @KateGardiner Yes, somehow this makes perfect sense; fits right into my thread. #AttentionEconomy = TShirts and Stickers. Oh, and ReTweets. in reply to KateGardiner #
  • "Think big" … sounds great, right? What's it come to: HuffPo and t-shirts. Oh, and stickers. Can't leave out the stickers. #borg #yuppies #
  • @WindSector … but writing about it just perpetuates the fascination. It's dialectical … can't keep going around and around the same bush in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector What I mean: documenting what we've already realized is punditry. "The dog returns to his bone" is the old Tibetan saying. #borg in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector Alt: imagine 2, 3 people co-authoring an essay. That would be something. Imagine 1000+ … once and for all. #glasperlenspiel in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector My point: those who deny this "shift the deckchairs on the Titanic". Those who hook into this? Ultimately they do just the same. in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector That understanding … you really think it's so rare? To understand is one thing. To actualize, to be … authentically. Diff. in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector You won't see me saying that folk are stupid. You'll see me pointing to a culture that seduces into compliance, inauthenticity. in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector "Nor"? too cryptic … I lost sync. in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector To tell the truth I imagined this #borg reality decades ago: alone in a call (apartment) typing away. Vy little novel in fact. in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector I know that. Understanding isn't the limiting factor. Anyhow, I used it as hash-tag. Let those who care google; takes seconds. in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector Point is that bla-blah Syria is as vacuous as bla-blah whatevuh. "I acknowledge that this story exists" is just identity stuff. in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector heh: worked through that one vy hard afternoon sitting on my bed in barracks … SEP73. "Inseparability of samsara and nirvana." in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector There are sometimes stories. There is always narrative. Maybe you had a question? p.s nor laugh nor cry: sautee onions 4 supper. in reply to WindSector #
  • @WindSector Formerly: "I care. I sent RedCross $25 last year." Now: "I care. I tweeted about the WarChild site last week." #borg in reply to WindSector #
  • "Breaking Up the Echo" > http://t.co/BSLtOVSK < Alas, I've been to to many drum circles and facilitated too may workshops to trust you. #
  • You a Republican, working poor, pay all sorts of taxes but not income tax? GOP/Romney have blown you off. (R) senior? Same for you. #
  • @WindSector Late 70s => early 90s I was all about "circles of 5", a system for folk to talk things through. No sale. It's a no-go. stay well in reply to WindSector #
  • @mathewi Kinda funny: this AM I tweeted about Doc3.0 > http://t.co/uW5eY41g < cc: @davewiner in reply to mathewi #
  • FWIW I was dealing with "siloed information" 35yrs ago. You simply don't give a damn. Gawd your hypocrisy makes me gag. #
  • While X% of citizens live in "food deserts" and Y% have trouble making ends meet, Z% are pigs. And family farms? Bankrupt. Buncha asses. #
  • @WindSector BTW yes, I got it. Snark. For decades I promote "subjective narrative". And … nothing. So: snark and punditry. F'n 'ell. in reply to WindSector #
  • Too much regulation? //No// standards for arsenic in foods such as rice. Buncha asses. #
  • You get frustrated by run-around. Understandable. Instead of making things better you shrug it all off. Understandable. #borg #
  • @DeanLand I smoke, I drink, I stay up late, don't workout. Never get colds. My advice: chicken soup w/spinache. Yog and cereal. Veggies. in reply to DeanLand #
  • 58yrs old, never "taken care of myself", and healthy as a horse. But of course YOU'RE EXPERTS ON EVERYTHING AND I KNOW NOTHING. #yuppies #
  • C'mon … tween you and me: you don't really want to know, do you. "Century Of The Self" full length documentary > http://t.co/3ST8mbkW < #
  • "futurejournalismproject" … a critical presence > http://t.co/xrpAQjc1 < #
  • Aung San Suu Kyi … the picture I posted 5yrs ago > http://t.co/v1TW1HrH < date '03. #
  • You a conservative senior, just getting by? GOP/Romney has blown you off. You don't pay income tax. You're a mooch. A leech. A free-rider. #
  • @DeanLand heh … less meat, more greens? I learned a lot from my queen goat: kale. And weeds, but that's 1 step too far. ;p in reply to DeanLand #
  • "The Real Mitt Revealed" by Robert Reich (@RBReich) http://t.co/Ea9PIJGu < (HuffPost) #
  • "Open Society Justice Initiative; We use law to protect and empower people around the world." > http://t.co/RK3Q7bnl < #
  • @DeanLand Ah, totally diff metabolism: didn't break 140 til I was late 40s! I'm big on 'cado for joy, but spinach for micro stuff. cheers in reply to DeanLand #
  • @DeanLand BTW /finally/ found a good juicer that wasn't ridiculously expensive. Juices rock; put pulp into spag sauce! in reply to DeanLand #
  • Republicans are a special sorta folk: they treat fellows in working class as second-rate. Disloyal. Impure. Tainted. #FundamentalistElite #
  • @pkedrosky The "membership required" dynamic is becoming more explicit. #VelvetRope cc:: @bfeld in reply to pkedrosky #
  • "Kindred spirits" I like. "Birds of a feather" makes me think of yuppie fraternity. #
  • Do you pronounce the "t" in "often", like off-ten? What about soff-ten? #
  • @DeanLand Moulinex. (Have had good luck with there stuff since OMG forever. ) Not huge; not for bulk. Dandy for me! in reply to DeanLand #
  • @DeanLand Biggest deal: the cheaper ones make nice mush. The good ones actually break the cell walls, so you get the goodness. be well in reply to DeanLand #
  • @bradneuberg Oh hey, know what seduced me from that stuff, and even fractals? Neurophysiology. Get into the plumbing and wow! #Hebb in reply to bradneuberg #
  • "Information in action" .. my idea of cognitive ergonomics. But fact is, my cohort (yuppies) have sold that down the river, like all else. #
  • I'd tweet a Charlie Rose int'view w/American investment manager who had successful corporations stolen by Russian cops and judges. But … #
  • … I've never been a fan of shit-eating smile, even as a busker. I'm finding your idea of "social" corrosive. Kinda hopeless, you are. #
  • @RedaLearning You use auto-reply on Twitter? That doesn't create a very positive impression! in reply to RedaLearning #
  • @WindSector Just wondering: are you using the Reply link? With others there's a collapsed thread. Here, each of yours is separate. in reply to WindSector #
  • "Breaking Up the Echo" > http://t.co/BSLtOVSK < "This has been a hope of countless dedicated journalists and officials." h/t @WindSector #
  • #ImplicitKnowledge – Maybe this helps: decision /management/ is treating citizens like units of computation; decison /support/ helps persons #
  • Is this Friday 13th? O'Reilly webinar interrupted: fire alarm in presenter's offices. And bang, 1st time ever: WordPress dB corrupted. #
  • Self-hosted #WordPress database corrupted. Import failed. How to proceed? > http://t.co/MxPSBA7o < (GPlus) #
  • @WindSector I see this now and then. But not always. Reply tweets should, by rights, be fully nested. HeyHo, it's 1998. Maybe by 2010 … ;p in reply to WindSector #
  • @RichLouv Y'day a bit of tweet thread on lack of face.to.face communications. Social Deficit Disorder? cheers in reply to RichLouv #
  • @westi, @dd32 Worth a quibble? "2012 default differs from 2010 and 2011; doesn't indent UL" > http://t.co/gZqPJj3O < cc: @nacin #
  • Still pondering #ImplicitKnowledge if we act on ulterior motives (Oh, yes we do!) we will be in convince/compel mode, not #discourse mode. #
  • I'd love to know: is it that I'm the only one who notices? or that nobody else really cares? (1 topic; 245 ragged comments. Discourse? Nope! #
  • @nacin I figured just that. IMNSHO losing indent reduces info cargo, but … fair winds / good sailing! ^5 cc: @westi @dd32 @simpledream in reply to nacin #
  • @nacin p.s. if someone takes the trouble / makes the effort to mark up <UL>, who says that should show nothing? Strikes me as wrong-headed. in reply to nacin #
  • It scares me. Top dogs in Twitter decide to regress their iPhone app, someone in WP decides default CSS should show nothing for <UL> … #
  • @drgrist By their troglodyte logic that makes him a loser. No, more: a wuss: "Kill me if you can; buy me off if you can't!" in reply to drgrist #
  • @GSiemens You're downtown, yes? "Startup #YEG TEDxEdmonton bring inspirational talks to downtown" > http://t.co/qTPPZ5An < #
  • @qik Kinda freaked me out: how did you send a DM to me in my name when I signed up?! Kinda nifty … #
  • Dear #designers – Yes, of course I believe in sidebars. But: why must a sidebar that's, say, 2 screens high cause wasted empty space below? #
  • "Custom URLs for post formats" > http://t.co/Ej2pY8qx < #WordPress #Rewrite #SheerTerror #
