Nothing you don't know already - but no less scary for that.

Cool Cartoon! Makes the big point clearly. How do people not get it? People don't like change so I guess the bleak future is the one to get used to.

Remember the days when nobody knew any more about you than you wanted them to know...

I was at a Twitter seminar some weeks ago given by hardcore social media guy Christian Payne (what a name that is! -- could come straight off the pages of Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress). When he was in Ireland, he called in on the creator of the iconic Che poster, Jim Fitzpatrick, as Christian himself has an adaptation of the poster for his blog avatar. Great interview with Jim...

If you want to create a vanity URL for your Google+ account, Google themselves don't provide for it but Gplus.to does. Mine's http://gplus.to/droantree -- a lot easier than telling people they can find me at https://plus.google.com/101084392852393586240/posts. I know there are problems with spammers and scammers when it comes to vanity URLs, but I'd like if Google themselves found a way to let us create them safely...

Looking for a dedicated link cable? Why not try the Denon AKDL1, a snip at only $9,999.00. Need convincing? Read the reviews on Amazon.com:

"When I got this cable, it made CDs come alive and I heard sounds I never heard before. On my Justin Bieber CD you could hear the audio producers in the background suggesting the only way people will buy this CD is if we autotune it..."

"What all of the other reviews say is true - This is comparable to the second AND third comings of Jesus Christ combined..."

"This connection isn't sound. If my calculations are correct, it should be sometime around 2007 for whomever is reading this. DO NOT USE THESE CABLES. Something... happens with them. Something came through, something from somewhere else. We were overrun in days, not many of us are left. WE LIVE UNDERGROUND! ONLY YOU CAN STOP IT NOW. SAVE US. DO NOT USE THESE CABLES..."

"I plugged the cable in backwards, and in doing so I reversed not only the polarity of my audio signal, but that of my entire house. Havoc ensued, my toaster came to life and saved me from the oncoming assualt of my washing machine, my phone rang inward, the microwave started filling with unpopped popcorn, and the house temporally collapsed in on itself..."

"The Denon AKDL1 dedicated link cable helped me locate my estranged father. And then vaporized him into pure data. We are now in touch via the ultra fine copper matrix of the AKDL1, he is more clearly defined than ever, the ultimate Dad experience!..."

"This is cool. I plugged this into my cat, and now that really irritating mail guy who wakes me up whistling in the morning is merely a stuffed trophy above my fireplace..."

Steve Jobs wasn't an inventor; he was a tweaker. And not a very pleasant tweaker at that.

Now why can't somebody write a song like this for the age of the internet? Something to help us retain necessary distinctions between real worlds and media worlds. Sometimes you'd miss the clarity and optimism of old-style revolution... :(

Doing the rounds at Reddit: "Rupert Murdoch says he has been touched by messages left on Amy Winehouse's phone."

Introduction

I have lived two lives. In the first, my younger years, I knew so much, had a grip on the big questions, understood what needed understanding. In this, my second life, I have lost all that - and what a liberation it has been!
