Some Times Funnies - Background Noise Steps Forward

Walk it like you talk it less you lose that beat

I got hearts, ah, in my looney tunes
I got dreams and you do, too
I got ten-wheel drive
To pick you up, up to your ears, oh

I got refined carbon in my eyelids cleared
I've got no one to love and no one to fear

You better walk it
And talk it less you lose that beat
You better lose yourself mama
And knock yourself right off of your feet. -Lou Reed

She's found the biggest rock

TED conferences have added a new kind of narrative to the publick conversation of the life of the mind. Story telling, not power points, are key. Good for them! I'd like to conceptually couch my thoughts on some topics in such a wrapper.... well one of these days, after I clean that closet. TED is so well formed in its prez, that it can be mocked, as Onion has done in What Is The Biggest Rock. Look out above!

Through the scanner darkly daddy-oh

The digitization of everything is an elixir for some people. It spawns visions. If we could only open up all the data…how about taking the college facebook and putting it on line …. why not street-level and satellite-level photos of every home in the U.S. of A. Ok! Build and sell a picture database of all the license plates on all the cars and trucks on the road? Gee, I don't know. Click here for It's the data talking item
