Miscellany.

Written by me on that other blog, cross-posted here for your commenting pleasure:
CONTACT LENSES WITH CIRCUITS AND LIGHTS. Is there something you'd like to see with your eyes other than what's really in front of you?

DIGG AND WIKIPEDIA WORK because the vibrant democracy we see on the surface is checked and balanced by a less conspicuous and more reliable elite group — Chris Wilson explains.

"THE KIDS BUYING MUSIC DON'T WANT immaculately-performed songs that remind them of their grandmothers; they want music that will help them get laid, which is exactly what AI's audition process doesn't test for."

ELMO AS KRUSTY. Didn't this happen on the "Treehouse of Horrors III"?

Absolutely, starting with pop-up tags with people's names next to their faces for the many, many times my memory has failed me.

User-selectable night vision, telescopic display, etc. might also be nice. And who needs a plasma screen if contacts can put the equivalent of a wall-sized display in front of your eyes?

"THE KIDS BUYING MUSIC DON'T WANT


The next item- the tramp stamp- was way more interesting.

That's called a notional subject.

So, what was I listening to raptly in 1959?

So took up the lute, and sure enough! it's a babe magnet.

Music to make out by?

Well Rh the lute does seem to work on the chickens that you always getting candid shots of. Enjoy. Just don't catch the bird flu.

As the article pointed out, Digg just recently tweaked their algorithm which pissed off a bunch of their "elite" users, giving them much less influence. Digg had become almost useless. I was going there less and less because the front page had been taken over by Martians. It seemed like most of the posts were about Ron Paul and Linux. I swear that once, the top spot on the front page was a "news" item that a new default wallpaper had been chosen for Linux. After the tweak, Digg is interesting again, presumably because it's MORE democratic and I find myself checking the site a lot more now.

rhardin,

Yabbut did you have that wicked, 45-degree-to-the-back combover?

Who says that Grandpa and Grandma's music did not help them get laid?

Not that they needed that much help, kiddies. Every generation seems to think that they invented sexual adventure, but I have to tell you (because you will find it so gross) that we geriatric types had no trouble finding willing partners in our youth, during the 1950's and 1960's. (Or--gasp--even now.)

Neither did our parents. World War II was a pretty effective aphrodisiac, overall.

The music playing about the time I was born (1943) and the years before kept working on this generation well after the war ended, according to my observation.

Grow up, kiddies. Don't worry. Grownups have sex, and actually it can get a lot better "As Time Goes By." (That's a song title, kiddies, actually a rather erotic song from a galaxy far, far away.)

You must remember this, a kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh...
