A multi-party discourse can be a never ending source of information, filling gaps and creating new possibilities, it is also several parallel monologues....

Do you feel you have done a full 360 on your feelings, or is that in reference to something else?

Does this make me a Hobo?

A Hobo is a person that travels to work.
A tramp is a person that travels and wont work.
A bum is a person that will neither travel or work.

A tribute to friendship

All of us are looking for somewhere to belong. If it's a sport, a hobby or just our families, there seems to be a universal need to fit in. For unity, for a purpose and for security. For a long time I looked for this. After so many countries, so many varying passions and hobbies, people always on the go, there flourished a need for a home. Only to realize I'd built it up internally with some very special people I met along the way. A few years ago I found a place of stillness beyond time and circumstance. I don't think I need or can explain it to anyone, but all I have to do is think about the ocean and I'm there.
It's more than alright, for I am off on new adventures again, growing every day into a larger vision of who I am and can yet grow to be. My heart overflows with the love we share, and I ache to think I'm leaving. Everything I am, everything I am about to become, I owe to your inspiration and support. You are coming with me for this one you see, mind and soul. Body will surely follow by courteousy of budget airlines =D

(you know who you are )
I love you.

Is this about me? I mean, me?!!? Thank you so much sweetheart, I can't wait until I fly over... it is only 7 weeks from now!
No matter where you go, I will always be there on the other end of the wire, virtually holding your hand when I can’t hold the real thing.
I love you too darling, I don’t know where I would be with out you having been there.

Apparently, a lot of the hubbub in Iran has to do with Iran wanting to sell Oil in Euro, rather than the norm of dollar. A more indepth article can be found here.

For some reason this makes me thing of L. Asimov and predictive mathematics...
Peak Oil is also called "Hubbert's Peak," named for the Shell geologist Dr. Marion King Hubbert. In 1956, Hubbert accurately predicted that US domestic oil production would peak in 1970. He also predicted global production would peak in 1995, which it would have had the politically created oil shocks of the 1970s not delayed the peak for about 10-15 years.

On travel

So maybe every entry doesn't have to be an insight...

Apparently there's a couple walking from London to Cape Town, and they're keeping a blog. Cudos. Right now they're somewhere in the Sahara Desert. (link taken from here).

Also, another round the world trip that might be worth a look. (Taken from too.)

With the stubborness of steady step mountains can be moved.



SMS spk & gndr bias

SMS modifies language.
In English, particularly:
its/it's (its)
there/their/they're (?)
your/you're (ur)
two/to/too (2)

have gotten indistinguishably intermeshed.
Perhaps there's a need for speed communication, and the old verbosity is by and large rendered redundant, or is it yet another case of too little too fast? Will this change language for good?


If an "ugly" man is seen with a "beautiful" woman, gender bias naturally implicates she's interesed in his money. How about an "ugly" woman with a "beautiful" man. Personality? In all fairness equality has not been achieved, but awareness of bias goes a long way.
Speaking of which:

Adaptible systems

For all the user-adaptable systems out there - a perfect system would need to make "errors".
That is, the perfect system would not only adapt to what the user thinks they want.
The best algorithims in evolutionary (? Adaptive?) programming allow for unexpected mutations and fluctuations. What is then the best balance between adaptability to existing data and the capacity to crunch completely novel input?
How much can we as users take in and process? And how much of this can be transfered into a simple (or even complex ;) algorithm?


One thing that bothers me about XML and RDFs, podcasts and rss feeds - they are flat, the dimension of time is sorted by autoupdates. Any other options (formats/languages) competing here? Is there any future in (and now I KNOW I am confundling concepts) multi-tiered AJAX?

Don't consume, recycle

Somehow I am unforgiving with the gadget frenzy.
It's not that there isn't food, it's that people can't afford it.
It's not that there isn't stuff, but we insist on consuming beyond our means.
Last years gadgets are out there, already unused in abundance, possibly in dumps.
Same with clothes, and furniture....

Do you believe memories are recyclable?
What about sentimental memorabilia?
This type of attachment warrants us little to no credit.
Yet the current culture of poke and throw away is penetrating human relations in a most frightening way.

Can we reuse someone's old shoes and remember how they reached their first peak?
Perhaps we can bequeath insights?
Maybe that's what stories and books are for?

virtual disdain

long after i burnt the bridge,
what would you say if i told you
that i drew you with my index finger,
dipped in chedder cheese yellow and,
dropped you in my spam folder,
without notice.
