Commonplaces

February 28, 2007

Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior.
Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits.
Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.
- Gandhi

March appears to be coming in like a lion.

Gillian Gunson‘s comment about why she blogs was on display at the recent Northern Voice.

Hole in head

February 26, 2007

Went to the clinic, signed a form saying I’d hold them harmless for whatever, discussed nerve damage and drooling and droopy eyelids and such, opened old wound, checked for centipedes and all that kind of shit, nothing found, closed it up, went home and ate Ibuprofen grateful not to have been found dead like Leslie - no relation to Dave - Winer on a floaty in a pool in Coconut Grove.

February 24, 2007

Last year I tried to get here via Second Life and I ran into a few technical difficulties. I got into into Boston yesterday and started burning money [...]

Crane watch

February 22, 2007

A Man’s World

February 21, 2007

Thx to Tom for the pointer A few weeks ago it was observed in the Harvard Gazette that when it comes to social networks, gender seems to matter.
