Read the whole thing. Think about what you can do. This is a big deal.
The rich, diverse, free web that I loved — and spent years in an Iranian jail for — is dying. Why is nobody stopping it?

I call myself a subjectivist. To me, that means that I have no authority to deny the truth of your own experience. If you experience it, it is true. The challenge is for me to understand you. Does God exist? Absolutely. There are people who have experiences that convince them without doubt of the truth of God's existence. My challenge is to understand. Does God exist? Absolutely not. There are people who have experiences that convince them without doubt that there is no God. My challenge is to understand.

Does God exist for me? That depends on how I can understand how my audience uses the word "God"! God is a word first. A concept second. A truth? Only subjectively.

+Travis Wellman practicing, too! Actually, I'm not sure I'm fully radicalized in that I don't spend very much time trying to convert people.

Has Mr Wolfe studied the visual cortex? Visual search is a parallel algorithm. So the example of randomly picking examples, checking them, and throwing them back, is analogous to brain activity in that each check has no memory of previous checks. But that's not because other checks have been forgotten. It's because other checks are no more complete than this one. Furthermore, an approximate model of human visual search might have multiple passes. First, could the letter be a T? Maybe... check again, this time with higher resolution. Then check a third time for positive confirmation with full attention. This final check is itself another parallel visual search task for the known attributes of a T. All three stages of the approximate model I just outlined could, and do, happen within the span of 100ms. In fact it happens within the span of an eye movement.

100ms is actually a really interesting choice for a time interval because it's fast enough for a complete visual search to occur, but not fast enough for a realization to be made, let alone a decision. So by the time the recognition of a T amongst the Ls reaches conscious control, the letters have already been reshuffled, and the ability to decide to check twice is eliminated.

A shot of home squeezed beet/lemon juice wakes me up better than coffee.

Hey +Bitbucket, I can clone a wiki, but can I serve it? How to iterate locally without repeated push? How to work on a local branch or bookmark without publishing?

I would ignore the technical questions section. If you're non technical, don't even try. Instead, find someone technical to give you an honest opinion. Also, head hunting can be a full time job, and getting the right first developer is especially important. Expect to burn a lot of hours looking.
One of The Foundation members asked in forum, “How do I find a good developer?”. I was glad to help, but then I thought that others might benefit from this advice so I answered it via a post. The best thing is to work on something small first. This way you’ll test the waters before putting a major project under risk. This might include a test or a real, but small task, (preferably outside of the main project) like writing a bookmarklet or a scrap...
