I realized how quickly one forum for expression can kill another.  Although I like the Total control of the blog format, and I’ve already said I prefer the tiny blog format, like Twitter or tumblr.But facebook has really sapped all of my skillz at online expression, although maybe this is the excuse I need to write more.http://www.techdigest.tv/2007/08/opinion_faceboo.html

My favorite inscription, I used to walk the cemetery behind my grandparents house in Knoxville, TN a lot.  I visited at least once a summer if not more.  The cemetery used to scare the crap out of me at night, their backyard was separated from the graveyard (some graves going back 200 years or more) by a small hedgerow.  But in the daylight I would wander around, trying make peace with the dead.  I think If i let them know I was an alright kid they would make sure to leave me alone at night.Remember me, as you pass byAs you are now, so once was IAs I am now, so you shall bePrepare for Death and follow me

Its really important that our World Leaders keep their wits about them these next 5 years and work out something that is sustainable in terms of Global Economic Models instead of just figuring out how to put the stock market back in Bull mode.Non-Performers!From an article Debt capitalism self-destructs thanks for the Facebook post D. Ray:)”The current talk about the need to curb speculation in the commodities and financial markets to stabilize prices is off target, especially for believers of market capitalism. All market transactions are speculative in nature. Speculation can stabilize prices as well as to destabilize them, but only in the short term. Long-term price levels (inflation or deflation), as Milton Friedman aptly observed, are always monetary phenomena. The current turmoil in the financial system, the subprime mortgage implosion, the credit crisis from the seizure in the asset-backed commercial papers market, the undercapitalization of commercial and investment bank, the rating agency dysfunction, the insolvency of monocline (bond) insurers, the massive financial losses by the GSEs and a host of other financial problems percolating under the media radar, are the outcome, and not the cause, of this market turbulence.

Flashmob Freeze

Thanks to Ian Smith for bringing my attention back to flashmob like activities. He is the one of the first people to get me interested in complicated computing by imagining the models you could create to analyze fish swarming, or bird flocking. I …

Thanks to Ian Smith for bringing my attention back to flashmob like activities. He is the one of the first people to get me interested in complicated computing by imagining the models you could create to analyze fish swarming, or bird flocking. I know, only geeks think that is cool. but it was 1990 and things were different then.

don’t like the twitter per post thing. So, I’ve manually created a weekly digest. Need to ask alex to add that as an option. I don’t twitter enough for a daily digest, but weekly might be cool. Anyway, I’ll unpost those tweets and here they are for reference. If you tweet in a forest and no one is following you, does Twitter still crash?”doing it l8r”

Rock Bottom Riser – By Smog, Bill Callahan

I was listening to this song as I wrote this post, so you should too when you read it.  Bill Callahan aka Smog, if you like it you should buy it.  There is Christ Love. And their is the love of Man, the kind that Gandhi was preaching about. These have their place in the universe, but their is also a place, a very elemental place for Blood Love.So I was thinking about love and family and what is all about. I feel really lucky to have the kind of family I do. The parents that raised me. The talk when I was growing up, especially as a teen, was about how other families worked…and how we’d never be like them. That maybe they seemed kind of Ozzie and Harriet but what we had was better for us. We had real dialouge. The good, the bad, and lots of the ugly kind of dialouge. The thing about is, that we knew you couldn’t change who you were and who your family was. Continue reading “Blood Love”
