Well, it looks like you may have answered your own question. but it was too long so i didn't read it fully. Networked Microblogs I would assume.

If you know the Andy I'm looking for, please introduce us.
In Fluid Concepts and Creative Analogies, Douglas Hofstadter (and a crew of talented students) argue that analogy-making is a core characteristic of human intelligence. The book is full of delightf......

Robert Neuwirth's Long Now talk (http://longnow.org/seminars/02005/jun/10/the-21st-century-medieval-city/) showed me how what we call slums are really powerful engines for absorbing the half of the world's population that is now evacuating village life. Now I'm reading Doug Saunders' excellent Arrival City (http://arrivalcity.net/) which seems to be the definitive work on the subject.

Neuwirth did a piece in SciAm's September issue, which was entirely devoted to the topic of cities, on this theme. Fascinating and persuasive.

We also need a theory that connects scalable growth to its limits. I don't think it's quite there but Geoffrey West's is compelling: http://blog.longnow.org/2011/07/26/geoffrey-b-west-%E2%80%9Cwhy-cities-keep-on-growing-corporations-always-die-and-life-gets-faster%E2%80%9D/
Tim O'Reilly originally shared:
 
While the London riots aren't directly connected to the Tea Party holding the US government budget process hostage, and the subsequent stock market meltdown, the sequence of events can't help but make me think of the lead-up to the French Revolution. A lot of people don't seem to understand how things can spin out of control.

We're headed into some difficult times - even if the markets recover, and the real economy eventually follows - it's pretty clear that much of our modern "growth economy" can't continue forever.

We need cool heads to prevail if we're going to find our way to a better future without a lot more pain and violence.
Violence breaks out for a third consecutive day in London, with riot police deployed and firefighters tackling blazes across the capital.

A comment on my blog just reminded me of this. Did you know that Xanadu actually shipped? As an open source project? Well it did, sort of. It was 1999, at the first OSCON. I was there and filed this report: http://jonudell.net/bytecols/1999-09-01.html
Tangled in the Threads. Jon Udell, Sept 1, 1999. The O'Reilly Open Source Convention. It used to be called simply the Perl Conference. The first was in 1997, and the second was last year, both in ...

+Ian Bicking To run it you needed what was, even then, an antique Smalltalk. I'm guessing nobody had that. It was quite a moment, though. He showed up unannounced, as I recall, and an event was hastily arranged. Ka-Ping Yee was there, he'd done a Python front-end for the demo, if you know him (I don't) he may be able to provide more backstory.

As we increasingly augment our minds I sometimes pause to reflect on the trade-offs we are making. What powers does the unaugmented mind possess? What do we give up when we outsource our memories t......

I just borrowed this from my son-in-law-to-be and reread it. Upside: Paul Farmer inspires me. Downside: he reminds me how little I've done. Consolation: I was never so far away from my family for so long.
