LiveJournal today asked "What modern invention do you think the world would be better off without?" and I answered "Twilight novels"; then amended it to:


"And Twitter. The whole online social thing is sorta freaking me out lately and I'm not sure why, being I'm down with The Future. I just am not convinced The Future is truly here yet- we just think it is. Like we think we're building with Legos when we're really building with Duplo Blox."


As long as we keep building, I guess. Sometimes it seems we've become so entrenched in the materials that we've lost sight of the building.


(don't mind me- I'm cranky 'cos I'm not at Amphi and Waregem this year, and Texas summer heat does funny things to the brain... :rolleyes: )

Quoted

"The first civilization started in Mesopotamia around 5000 BCE (more or less), which is 7,000 years ago.

If you live until age 80, that's more than 1% of the history of civilization.

Just throwing it out there for anyone else who'd never thought about it before. Certainly changed my perspective a bit."

Yeah, and in the whole timeline of the existence of the universe, humanity is about 2 seconds long. Something reassuring and liberating about that. Maybe the weight of the world isn't entirely on our personal shoulders after all. Find joy.

What has happened to all of the people that were on the forum? Some were pretentious, witty, and cynical. Nonetheless, the posts were usually entertaining. Where have you gone?

I´m having an evil hacker spirit living at home, I´m technically not able to enter the forum when I´m there. Therefore I can only get in from work. Therefore I´m not around much...
