@wchun reminding us of the mid-1990s sense of "the Internet as the telos of the critical dream of the Enlightenment" #ir10

\(Actually, that was a paraphrase; shouldn't have been in quotes\. \#ir10\)

Fri Oct 09 18:32:23 +0000 2009

@wchun: "new media \(and the technologies on which it runs\) race towards the bleeding edge of obsolescence" #ir10 \(and that one is a quote\)

Fri Oct 09 18:34:25 +0000 2009

@wchun: to exaggerate slightly, the answer to the question of all things new is "it's the network" #ir10

Fri Oct 09 18:46:46 +0000 2009

@wchun: if "it's the network" has become banal cliché it's not b/c we know the network but b/c we don't; network is primarily imagined #ir10

I have hit the point at which Michiko K. dissing something is reason for me to go out and pick it up. Worst. Reader. Ever.

Brilliant! Thanks so much.

On plane, beginning trip to Knoxville for #asap. Looking forward to the conf, but not prepared enough. Good thing I work well on planes.

Spoke too soon; I produced a reasonable outline and then promptly fell asleep. Ah, well.

And now, two hours on a regional jet. The airlines seem to have a unique definition of "regional."

Just had the very creepy experience of hearing someone talking right outside my hotel room window. I'm on the 11th floor.

Fri Oct 23 19:03:30 +0000 2009

I'm pretty sure it was actually the sound of the television in the next room coming through a space between wall and window, but ew.

Fri Oct 23 19:06:30 +0000 2009

About to present at #asap. My brain is still 100% convinced that it's 4.56 am. Not at all sure how this is going to go.

Just tested Chrome for Mac preview; looks like it may be great, but I can't use it until there's 1Password support for it.

Highly! It has enabled me to have many strong passwords while only needing to remember 1. I keep the DB synced via Dropbox.

Eep! I didn't ask & should have. They've been great with previous online stuff; I suspect they'll say yes, but I should be polite!

Okay - my iMac was just hijacked by Front Row. I hadn't invoked it, and I could NOT get out of it. WTF?

Thu Oct 29 23:04:07 +0000 2009

Working on page 4 of the cv. The thing's due tomorrow. The good news is that the stuff I can/need to document now stops in a page or two.

Thu Oct 29 23:28:53 +0000 2009

Replying to @2xlp

I think it's cmd-esc; I hit it trying to cmd-~ to another document, and because FR is so slow in SL, it seemed unprovoked. But yeah.

Thu Oct 29 23:53:33 +0000 2009

So what day is it? And what time am I supposed to beg for someone to tell me to stop working and go watch television? \(And what, exactly?\)

Fri Oct 30 01:45:57 +0000 2009

Replying to @captain_primate

So now, I guess? Yay!

Fri Oct 30 01:53:51 +0000 2009

So apparently the iMac has decided to make me quit working by completely locking up. This is what I get for failure to immediately comply.

Indeed. And I don't get the value added in "following" a list, especially when I'm already following the folks on it.

Fri Oct 30 23:34:52 +0000 2009

And as soon as I say that, I see the gaping hole in the sidebar. It'll fill with stuff for the internal dossier \(teaching, etc\), but now...?
