  • Reading about !Google #Friend #Connect in an effort to keep thinking, as opposed to responding w/knee-jerk enthusiasm, about what it can do. #
  • A #tragic result of #HIV fear: #Uganda Parliament adds death sentence, bans on free speech to anti-gay bill http://ur1.ca/dou7 !GLBT #rights #
  • @Dr_Memory Read the bill—death penalty for so-called 'offense of homosexuality' directly tied to #HIV status. IOW, HIV+ means they kill you. in reply to Dr_Memory #
  • @Mollena @curious_cat09 I dislike most #kink #events but agree; they CAN BE valuable w/o a partner. IMHO, @KinkForAll is best if going solo. in reply to Mollena #
  • @Dr_Memory Fair enough. You're right re #homophobia is a deep-seated issue, but I do think #Uganda is clearly scared shitless of #HIV. !GLBT in reply to Dr_Memory #
  • Now I want to make a #parody called "Dickification." Sexist #language makes me sad. ♺ @lizhenry: Srsly? "Pussification"? http://bit.ly/T6SId #
  • #Social #media #gender: http://bit.ly/XLAi6 Cuz men r more afraid of not being men than women r afraid of not being women. ♺ @ampersandology #
  • I'll be there. ♺ @sfslim: This month's #5MoF (5 Minutes of Fame) is TONIGHT, 8pm @Noisebridge. Schedule of talks is here: http://is.gd/4lc23 #
  • @curious_cat09 Are you saying folks who want to make wine should get a grape orchard before they start researching wine making? Seems silly. in reply to curious_cat09 #
  • Damn. #KFADC is likely to lose Bethesda Chevy-Chase High School venue on, I think, a technicality. And I was so careful. Must try harder. :( #
  • Seems #CUPF will happily grant #KFADC an alternative venue. They've been a joy to work with. :) We'll move but our unconference is still on. #
  • My new #rule: I will not respond to any #email that solicits a strong #emotional reaction, positive or negative, before 20 min have elapsed. #
  • @helio_girl Yeah, I did mean "elicits" but "solicit" also works. In either case, I'm gonna wait 20 min. :) Thank you for giving me the idea. in reply to helio_girl #
  • Gotta stop working tonight so I can enjoy #5MoF @Noisebridge. Thankfully they're starting a little late…but I'm still stopping. Yes I am. :) #
  • I think @lxpk is showing us a preview of his #pre-literacy #education project? I seem to recall having convos about this. #5MoF #Noisebridge #
  • BJ Epstein is speaking on !Internet #trolls @Noisebridge's #5MoF. She said etymological root might be from fishing. Does she mean trawling? #
  • I love this #idea. RT @sfslim "When you commit to making something real, reality must make room for you." ~@NthMost co-creator of @Apocaisle #

  • ♺ @cand86 I hate when people misinterpret Ayn Rand. You can criticize #Objectivism, but don't say her philosophy promotes things it doesn't. #
  • I often mistype .net domain names as .ent but I don't see any reason why we don't have a #TLD for #Ents. :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ent #
  • #Intersex in #Australia placed on !sex #offender register? ♺ @SaraEileen @katebornstein: Prank? If not, link to details? http://ff.im/-9QaOF #
  • ♺ @benwerd: !Google #Wave isn't rethought #email at all. It's a rethought enterprise #wiki and collaboration engine. Which is kind of handy. #
