  • #WorthWatching #TakeAMoment "Tim O'Reilly: Birth of the Global Mind" > http://t.co/9PQvzwFb < (FORAtv) #
  • There we do: directed intelligence! > http://t.co/cl4ZkUcq < cc: @MLane #ImplicitKnowledge #Design #CampFireTalk #
  • OMG O'Reilly sooo just showed his true colors! But hey, he's A-list, and I'm … what, yuppie. Do tell. I say "pongo". You? You say nothing. #
  • The greatest evidence of my virtue? Simple: that I've put up with you smarmy fuckers for 4 f'ing decades w/o reverting to pistol-grip pump. #
  • A song about not surrendering integrity, byt RATM: http://t.co/xTz0uGSW < #
  • O'Reilly, you get $XXX/hr for validating swill. @IBMWatson "makes suggestions"? You sure? You real sure? Decision /support/ VS /management/. #
  • @sixgroups Ouch. My site took forever to load cuz … so sad to see you're not present. #
  • For yrs I've //tried// to talk to Tim O'Reilly about "nust&bolts". Now ? He's swaggering about "stuff that matters". Gawwwwd … #yuppies #
  • "Back in the 70s a lot of us tried that" … fucking sell-outs … lamers … cop-outs … _poseurs_ … Yaaa I mean you, O'Reilly. #
  • Go ahead, tell meabout "failed hunter-gatherer" you f'ing _port parole_ for self-serving technocracy. Swagger. Game.set.match. #square head. #
  • How sterile is knowledge? Listen to Tim O'Reilly. Go ahead … you're well filtered, it won't hurt you. You'll profit from apologia. #borg #
  • Tim … Mr. O'Reilly … you see in GoldmanSachs only pathology? But, see, that's my point: plop.fizz clehvur thot and there you go, to next #
  • @JonDron – Dal rewarded my turn.of.face. A set of web pages, $$ for research, design for PoMo/CogPsych course in History. Facts. @GSiemens #
  • @GSiemens – With young men I don't get coffee; with venerable professors, single malt at faculty club. Result? VRML/taxonomy/psycho-taxonomy #
  • "The way we govern ourselves is broken; it doesn't scale. We need new mechanism." Tim O'Reilly as gate keeper. I've been showing alt for yrs #
  • OMFG you're soooooooo glib … yaaa, great round of low laughter from audience. Great line, Tim. #AttentionEconomy #SizzleNoSteak #
  • @ConversationAge "Preferences" … you mean selection from previously established menu. And you call yourself "ConversationSomething"?! #
  • Here's how karma works: in some really low moment, you doubt yourself. But … if you actually //haven't// been a worm … well then … #
  • What did I mean by that rant about yuppies? Take @ConversationAge as paradigmatic. Look at the nick. See "empathy". Now read for content. #
  • Want reason for real fear? "a mental model is an established menu"; see how elegant? how suave? how devoid of validity? Oh. Don't you care?! #
  • See, one of my very first Zen vows was about not falling into thrall ("Enthralled", get it?) by the pathology. cc: @ConversationAge #borg #
  • @Zen_Moments Even hidden at the base of the wall, behind the bush, the fragrant blossom simply puts out its fragrance … simply. in reply to Zen_Moments #
  • See, here's why I'm so pissed off: folk living richer than aristocrats, but as pimps. With sadly, sadly impoverished views. And no questions #
  • Shall I tweet each one of these? > http://t.co/N64T834k < Is it about content? Ohhhh c'mon. A-list of f'ing die. #yuppies #borg #
  • @algore Connect w/Stewart Brand.; dare experience "the great grief". I suggest fine cognac, though single malt recommends itself. Mangalam in reply to algore #
  • @Randall_Evans c/w very feeble smiley. Tell me, who were you trying to communicate to? !impressive in reply to Randall_Evans #
  • @pkedrosky Wanna do a round of <glasperlenspiel>? Go from there to training/education. I'm pongo; UR clehvur. #Hesse cc: @JohnAllenPaulos in reply to pkedrosky #
  • #YEG Anyone a custom builder? Got ATX form GigaByte mobo w/5770 in game box; want to shift that to mini-tower. Got hardware? #
  • @thezachmaginnis Challenge #1 in busking: in a crowd, sing to 1 person at a time. Crowd level? /*FAIL*/, unless pretending to jukebox. in reply to thezachmaginnis #
  • @_Chris_Moore Yes, good sir. And kudos on The Quarters. But I scrape … and have found not a crack to introduce innovation. RIP Lougheed. in reply to _Chris_Moore #
  • @GranholmTWR Too bad I'll never communicate w/your techs. I now aim at biz and edu, but I'm b'cast tech by nature. keep on keepin' on! #
  • "I run 4, 5, maybe 6 hours a day." Yes … you do. Yuppie. Have you noticed the world around you recently? At all? Ever? #
  • My sorta folk: "‘West Wing’ cast reunites for McCormack political ad " > http://t.co/SxC4yzS2 < via @GranholmTWR #
  • @GranholmTWR When I "almost cut my hair the other day", I think of C. J. Cregg. I know … I do it … like I owe it … to someone. #
  • #cynicism – Not a frat boy? Then suck up. Oh, you think that's a joke?! Then sputter.choke.die. That's how it is. http://t.co/oXvn4JY4.other #
  • @pkedrosky "What is the smallest prime?" /*blink*/ You see why I stepped off the red carpet? you see why I want no part of your "success? in reply to pkedrosky #
  • Kedrosky has 221K Followers. He tweets such as "What is the smallest prime?" I say you're fucked. Gee golly shucks, you love him and … #
  • @cameronreilly I've followed you quite a while. I like your questions. But … dewd … I was asking those when I was, like, 16. HeyHo in reply to cameronreilly #
  • @MooreBlitz What hung me up as a young man: the real danger of making persons into entries in spreadsheet. cheers #solidarity in reply to MooreBlitz #
  • "My fave hashtags are now boring". Ok, so follow some real sources of news: http://t.co/y2EvGar1 < #
  • Would this work: "Religious Anarchist"? (If you don't see the contradiction hovering, you aren't paying attention.) Yuppies' kidz = screwed. #
  • If I hadn't objected to the way you over-throw democratically elected gov'ts, I would gladly have remained airborne infantry tech. Gladly. #
  • @hotdogsladies Or maybe you just had that thought. And, w/o pondering its validity, realized it was kinda cute. cc: @sentience in reply to hotdogsladies #
  • #Curation seems a scholastic abstraction? #Aggregation too? Here's 1 of my slabs: http://t.co/I1fG9APj < #ThroughPut #
  • @FestivalPlaceSP HeyYa – Long time ago I did logistics, comms, security, sound … helped start the Folk Fest. cheers! #
  • @FestivalPlaceSP p.s. maybe http://t.co/Gnq3iq1H could say something about location? What you know is transparent. It's not obvious! :-) #
  • @MoirAlanna Oops: URL us up in bio instead of being a clickable link. Details matter, no? cheers #
  • @mjohnny3 Your bio says nothing about who you are, and you don't provide URL. 8K Followers? Social media sucks, don't it. #
  • 8K Followers. Dig this: "“Stop” signs should be called “slow down long enough to make sure there’s not a cop” signs". So … really … #
  • #India – Watch, neo-yuppies will destroy all those who've shown initiative w/o being part of "social media". Watch. (Can you watch? see?) #
  • #TheWell – I know, I know, you don't much care about #Identity and such > http://t.co/C5gas5Y2 < http://t.co/vp3uMh77 #
  • #TheWell informs me that Bernard D. Tremblay (ben) is notRPTnot my real name. Nor is Bernard (ben) Tremblay. Oh. "Well." #yuppies #
  • Again, it's terribly simple: you read "create value" and you think "acquire wealth". Don't you see? #CognitiveSchema #ImplicitKnowledge #
  • @nansen I think that's painfully poignant … how about you? in reply to nansen #
  • @Ziggy_Daddy "FM"? I've got 9yrs university … and done MilSpec tech_docs … I don't throw acros. C'mon mate … in reply to Ziggy_Daddy #

  • @PrimeJunta "Damned with faint praise" … apparently our wealthy, well educated literati (read: yuppies) can't grasp such simplicity. Won't in reply to PrimeJunta #
  • @semil Well that certainly negates their value. No. Wait … in reply to semil #
  • @Ziggy_Daddy Sorry you didn't get my recommendation to John Moore. I guess I'm a total waste of space. Or not … and folk just fuck with me in reply to Ziggy_Daddy #
  • Why you can't listen? or just don't? Simple: low self-esteem. So you figure others are worth even less than you are. 101 … think, evahr? #
  • Ohhhhh c'mon, get an ironic view sometime. GOP are red-neck crackers, and DEM are f'ing yuppie bullshitters. Get a grip. Or don't it matter? #
  • Truth: the plutocrats (read: psychopaths) loom over all of us. I say so. You suck up. Of course you have to ignore/cold-shoulder me. D'uhh. #
  • @Ziggy_Daddy Ah, fine stuff. I'm big on RGR … or more than 3 letters. You know, as though I'm a person and not a machine unit. 'nite in reply to Ziggy_Daddy #

  • @gruber You're on Charlie Rose! :-) #
  • heehee … such schmucks you are. Apple's connection / adapter? $30? That's Ford "profit model". I'm a Chev man. Fuck you, and the horse … #
  • "You can't roll it up yet" … from uber-pundit NYTimes. F'ing idiot. You often roll things up to put them away?! #yuppies #
  • 600,000 apps for Android. 700,000 apps for iPhone. Tell me your culture isn't just plain insane. Go ahead. Try. I don't ignore folk. #
  • PDF didn't get read/forwarded, so PotUS swearing in was botched. But I'm silly / you're above all that. Maybe because you cause it all. #
  • @BombHunters Shui Franco-Albertain; "c'est une bombe" works for me! The deck guns' shells were called bombs quite a number of times. cheers in reply to BombHunters #

  • #WordPress Twenty Twelve looks nice and clean: http://t.co/Rgz3eX6z < #
  • @Ziggy_Daddy I wish I could credit GOP/conservatives with a sense of irony. But I don't think that world-view works that way. in reply to Ziggy_Daddy #
  • @Ziggy_Daddy Yuh know, is why I strain at those little quibbles: sometimes they lead us to richer stuff. Yes, spot on. #Epistemology in reply to Ziggy_Daddy #

  • @ryderjaphy Say, got a question: is Khenchen just honorific? I'm vy often been tempted to apply that to the Dzogchen Pönlop, Rinpoche. in reply to ryderjaphy #
  • #WordPress Learning Management System (#LMS) > http://t.co/dhyKyeML < #
  • @ryderjaphy Ah, ok. Thanks Bill. So, Thrangu Rinpoche … and Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche as well. Am I missing any from commonly known? in reply to ryderjaphy #
  • #YEG I've always though piping bitumen was shipping away money. But I just heard there's $20/barrel price differential in the stream. Fact? #
  • Ever felt that you'd really been listened to? heard out? It's hard to capture the essence of that … feeling, well … dignified! #Implicit #
  • @Ziggy_Daddy Bang on; my fave term! :-) thanks for the link in reply to Ziggy_Daddy #
  • If I, after all these years, yearn for the clear voice of conservatism (with which I disagree) it is because I saw Peter Lougheed at work. #
