Anyone up for a phone chat? Doing a radio tech show in Salem, trying to bring some interest to doing makerspace in Salem and keeping informed on Portland activities... On or off air, just want to talk a bit...

Here's an interview show from last year, FYI:

Started posting the audio from my KMUZ radio show version of "NW Tech Show". See nwtechshow.com. Just had great hour-long panel, walking through SOPA with a tech-enthusist lawyer (episode 51 for 1/18/2012).

Love the end where they smoothly fly up to the exit and walk out.

Looked up Skydive Arena, it just opened in Prague, Czech Republic. Cost is 1099 CZK (~$64). How quick could I get under the max 287lbs limit, I wonder? A group of us should, like.... go.

Since we're in a new social space, here's an old favorite... "From what you're positing, It's like Portland's almost an alternative universe... like, Gore won, the Bush Administration never happened." "Exactly!"

... and I know 3 people in the below thumbnail from the Salon L'Orient shows!

Not a huge loss... The show was just a series of skits with the same guy and gal from the video playing different Portland characters, usually to the end of Portland people being stupidly extreme in some unflattering stereotype or another: A women's bookstore where the employees crudely push visitors towards pre-selected books regardless of what they're asking for, stall on completing sales for people in a hurry, and vow terrible vengence on customers who try to leave before they're ready to let them go. Hipsters that turn their lives upside down to avoid doing anything that becomes enjoyed by the mainstream. Etc. A few bits were good, but mostly the humor was pretty mean-spirited.

Song discovered due to offhand but strangely familiar comment, but applies in oh so many other places... On a side note to my lady friends: Heavy on a man's shoulders falls false blame. Don't do it lightly, the damage to trust and caring can be severe.

"The guilt belongs to me. Yes you're innocent. You're as pure as driven snow. You've been had, I'm a cad, at least at last I know."

This one I'll keep for inspiration. It is apparently the 1997 'Think Different' Ad, with Steve Jobs doing the narration instead of Richard Dreyfuss. His message in his own voice is more powerful...

It's so transparent that this was his own aspiration.

If he had released this version in 1997, he almost certainly would have been accused of arrogantly putting himself in the same league with famous giants of history.

14 years later and after revolutionizing 3 or 4 industries, it's clear that's exactly where he belongs.

Of course, the missing piece is scale... In finding that G+ version, I went through 3 different sizes of pics. Each 'goes blonde' at a different distance. Cool idea, though.

Nothing is better for the economy, progress, and human dignity than the ability to massively interconnect to each other in mutually beneficial ways with minimum communication costs. So those that need to keep themselves up by keeping everyone else down hate it.

Yes, we need to insist that our internet freedom is more important to general human success and happiness then the sum total 'benefit' (usually to a small and powerful few) of the 10 million tiny reasons to restrict that internet freedom, or to raise it's cost so that the masses can't afford it.

I like the idea of a plugin that lets you use facebook from google+, but this one is riddled with problems, some that look possibly intentional backdoors for later exploit. See the comments on reddit for details:
