When we master the head-stand, we conquer Time. When we master the metaphor, we conquer Things. When we master instant messaging, we assimilate with Time. Time is a Thing constructed from language and culture and value on the artifact of physical metaphorical Time.
Computer technology is a technology that freezes Time and instead bases life on punctuated actions separated by stillness.
“Frozen in the Index of Time,” he sang. The sound reverberated through the annals and tunnels and funnels full of books and flipped over folders of pamphlets and papers. All could be accessed, dead matter catalogued and filed and archived in case someone should forget and need a reminder. Everything said will be one way or another„,recovered from its original place.
Put this shit on my tab. Don’t feel like dealin with it now, I’ll deal with it later.

Steam! What a glorious marketplace. Paying for games. Pantheon and I are latecomers to it, paying for games—Steam noobs. The reason is it feels good to pay for them through Valve’s Steam. They are the gatekeepers, but they plan their cut with generosity to those that make their business possible. (discussion of Valve’s cut here) Gatekeepers are the assemblers and the connectors; they must have honor and responsibility to the folks they assemble and connect. Examples of Greed in these situations: cable companies, ISPs, Oil companies…deskilling workers to empower management.Gatekeepers can dominate or decide to rule well. Grats to Valve!
Audiosurf is a game in which you can play songs. Any songs. You play them. I was introduced here to them byPantheon & the Ark. Yea. But visualize your music—allow peeps to play it
“There’s no right way to play the game.”
Python code: there’s one right way to program.
LISP code: there are many ways to program. c2.com - LISP pages - onetwothreefourfive >six< ??history Or, LISP seems to be a friendly ghost. Magically, no one can talk about it directly or teach it. And no one knows if you can make something with it. Maybe I’ll stick to Python for now.
“Having INSULTED everyone he knows in some way, flinching with life abuse, he tries to be kind. Internal death begins—bodily & psychological. Internal Death is resisting antisocial tendencies. “Kill yourself if you don’t get what you want now! And don’t forget the gun.” and now for something completely redolent

Post-Dilla, the boolean said, “= True”.
I DON’t KNoW. Jeremy Baley is not fucking famous. What would be the funniest possible way to present my art? Jeremy: “A computer nerd mystifying video like The Cosby Show and Bhopal catastrophe and Guantanamo torture. Foil to those who care about their tools over the world they are changing with those tools.” He act like a famous new media artist! He challenge the new media establishment with satire in the form of naivety! I love mindless self indulgence!
What a year was 1913! Many have called it the true beginning of 20th century culture. From New York, where the first large-scale show of modern art alarmed viewers, to Vienna and Paris, where music by Schoenberg and Stravinsky sparked audience riots —- it was a year of artistic upset and audience apoplexy! A hundred years later, WNYC’s Sara Fishko and guests tell the story of this Mad Modernist moment of sweeping change, and the ways in which it mirrors our own uncertain age.
What do white people like about black people? I’ll start: + they are very firm about what they want and do not back down unless it’s for a very good reason and this causes them little internal distress.” Coralary to Viking Onboard Workouts History Lecture
