  2. @bsmall2 I've not tried # I couldn't see anything indispensable about what # does that # with a generous char limit can't do. As a former # zealot, these (federated) services should all be readily duplicated by Drupal install profiles as well.

  4. @strypey Damnit. You started me looking into this again. Here's "Eben # on #, # and Government Surveillance" a year before # and right on the money:

  5. @strypey I dunno. I set up a # account a couple of years ago to check out # integration and just thought "Is this it? Is this what all the fuss is about?" The vanity value of feeling important enough to be surveilled appears the killer feature.

  6. @strypey I see it more as encouraging # members to join # et al., and to expose non-members as having activist sympathies. I can't imagine the NSA wouldn't be glad of the assistance.

  9. @tregeagle # (et al.) is a diagnostic tool, like an optometrist flipping lenses on that contraption they have. "Is this better? Or this?"

  12. I certainly don't need a publisher's idea of what I'm supposed to be interested in, which is then filtered through #'s idea of what I'm supposed to be interested in. Just give me an # feed. I can take it from there.

  15. Having just finished an essay on #, I can say it's shocking how much allegedly respectable research is generated by convenience sampling of privileged # college kids.

  17. # is designed to be ruthlessly, mindlessly positive. You can only like things; you can't dislike, or be upset, outraged, or grief-stricken. It is deliberate, systematic inhumanity; the edge cases are just extreme examples, not aberrations.

  18. @zoowar Never again. I still get flashbacks of brainless blonde-haired, blue-eyed marketing gurus who think they know better than me because they are # friends with thousands of their fellow scam artists.

  19. Good news everyone: # and # are offering their workers a cure for being female. Now they can be just like "normal" employees.

  20. Just remembered where I recently saw a lovely chap I knew from # anarchist/socialist circles in the 90s. In a # "do you know?" nag. An account I've only ever used for testing # integration. Not spoken to him since the days of # Navigator Gold. Creepy.
