We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.
Wisdom - that part of knowledge that isn't only true, but also happens to be helpful.

Wisdom speaks softly... Thereafter the volume increases proportionate to the level of ignorance

Will nature make a man of me yet?
All designed objects are propaganda for a certain way of life.
Sometimes we need to stop analysing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out precisely how we feel, stop deciding exactly what we want, and just see what happens.
We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.

Some random items of interest:

  • Prison LATimes.  Police protest prison release policy in CA.  One factor driving widespread disorder in the US will be rapid draw downs of US prison populations due to an inability to pay for continued incarceration.  That’s starting to happen.  There are nearly 2.5 m people in US prisons, an astounding number and a neon sign that the US political/economic system has been in deep decline for a while.  When the damn does break it’s GG time.
  • Detroit plans to turn urban blight into farmland.  Operating on a scale never before attempted in this country, the city would demolish houses in some of the most desolate sections of Detroit and move residents into stronger neighborhoods.
  • Urgent Evoke.  A game to change the world from Jane “reality is broken, game designers can fix it” McGonigal.   Seems a little too integrated into the current system for me.
  • New AR platform Junaio.  An attempt to open the flood gates.  User-based layer development: Embed 3D objects, images, notes or website links into your current location in the real world and share it with friends.
  • The USG gets a clue.  The treasury department lifted a ban on US companies selling social software to customers in the Sudan, Iran, etc.  This is reversal is due to the role of Twitter in Iran’s recent unrest.  The clue train isn’t stopping at all of the stations, sourceforge is still under a ban.
  • How can open source guerrillas use celebrity sponsors to give the movement a voice.
  • Human flesh search engines.  Nice treatment by the NYTimes.  More griefing than search engine.
