Five years later, I still point people to the FriendFeed changelog as an example of best practices for transparency. http://changelog.friendfeed.com/
"Description: too tired to finish this right now" lol - Brent Schaus

Senator Warren’s progressive supporters demand accountability for her rightwing pro-Israel positioning - http://mondoweiss.net/2014...
When Senator Elizabeth Warren began spouting Likud talking points-- that Hamas welcomed civilian deaths and the US should not sanction Israeli settlement construction -- her progressive base was shocked. That's why they confronted her at a talk at Tufts earlier this week.
She's a I-W****. Dump her. - American
Warren is proving she has no chops when it comes to foreign policy. Hillary will dissect her in the debates - She'll become Hillary's (aka the Harpy) new foil. - Chu_
Barack Obama gained altitude and soared in 2008 by challenging the political establishment on foreign policy. Elizabeth Warren will crash and burn in 2014 by spouting neoconservative and neoliberal foreign policy platitudes. It took Warren less than a week to trash her progressive credentials -- largely thanks to pressure from the Israel lobby within the Democratic Party. She is weak and compliant -- not a principled rebel. - Sean McBride
The lobby probably gave her that script to fail. They're behind campaign Billary - as they are better con-artist-duo than Warren. Maybe Bill can be her veep... is that legal? - Chu_
Rand Paul stands a better chance of being the next Barack Obama in the upcoming presidential contest than Elizabeth Warren. Hillary Clinton has already set herself up to be the next tired John McCain in that battle. - Sean McBride
McCain and Hillary - the Beltway Cronies. ~should be a song, too bad every band out there is bubble gum and hipsters. - Chu_
John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Joe Lieberman, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren -- there are all now linked together in the public mind as pro-Israel hawks and tools of the Israeli government and the Israel lobby. Warren could have positioned herself outside of this circle and challenged it (as Obama did in 2008), but she has chosen not to. - Sean McBride

‘TimesWarp’ tries to keep the ‘Times’ honest - http://mondoweiss.net/2014...
Longtime journalist Barbara Erickson's site criticizing New York Times stories for their pro-Israel bias has been up for less than a year but is gaining a reputation for clarity and insight. TimesWarp presents evidence that the NYT is Israel-centric in its coverage.

Life Is Random: Biologists now realize that “nature vs. nurture” misses the importance of noise http://tm.durusau.net/?p=56319
"Is our behavior determined by genetics, or are we products of our environments? What matters more for the development of living things—internal factors or external ones? Biologists have been hotly debating these questions since shortly after the publication of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection. Charles Darwin’s half-cousin Francis Galton was the first to try to understand this interplay between “nature and nurture” (a phrase he coined) by studying the development of twins." - Maitani

Utterly amazing from a DMV guy... worth reading if you are interested in analytical philosophy: what the practice of early Wittgenstein might mean in a "conventional" language, to the implications of the private language argument, then back to trying to express the ineffable in ordinary experience. For gaps in meanings, along the way we get to actually encounter Lakoff at his Berkeley home: metaphor is in the idea and can't be wished away with grammar (ontology embedded in language as revealed by the taxonomy behind word units).

"New representations of thought — written language, mathematical notation, information graphics, etc — have been responsible for some of the most significant leaps in the progress of civilization, by expanding humanity’s collectively-thinkable territory." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"But the dynamic medium offers the opportunity to deliberately invent a humane and empowering form of knowledge work.

How would FriendFeed be different if it was designed and built today?
For one, it wouldn't support iGoogle. - Cristo
Flatter design? - Jennifer Dittrich
It would probably be run over SSL. - Cristo
Jennifer, FriendFeed is already pretty flat, isn't it? - Cristo
Interesting question. From my perspective, it is still more advanced than Twitter, Facebook and Google+ regarding user interface and features. - Sean McBride
It is, but you do see a lot of rounded corners, etc., and some shading. I'm guessing you'd see something a bit more boxy. - Jennifer Dittrich
Maybe, but it's still possible the designer would have taste. ;) - Cristo
Very true. I'd expect it to be less vertical - or at the least, use width a bit more broadly. - Jennifer Dittrich
Every third post in your feed would be an advertisement. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
It would be possible to like individual comments. - Joe
There would be ads on the side advertising whatever stuff was mentioned by people on that page. Apple Watch, coors, food, etc. - Joe
Joe, it would be challenging to allow liking of comments and have it not be busy looking. I do wish they would add the advertising feature though. I feel disconnected from Madison Avenue when I'm on FriendFeed. - Cristo
It'll have a screensaver :P - imabonehead from Android
It would be mobile first. - Louis Gray
I question the mobile first mantra. Mobile is usually a much more constrained experience. Without a website it's hard to know what your mobile app should focus on. - Cristo
Photos would be much larger. - Louis Gray
Meh. I don't have an issue with photo size. - Cristo
I actually know the answers. I'm just not telling. ;) - Cristo
In other words, it would be more like Facebook? - Joe
Why would it be like Facebook? Would you design a new web app that behaved like Facebook? - Cristo
Heck, no. - Jennifer Dittrich
Maybe you would be forced to read comments. :) - Cristo
Maybe you would be forced to delete comments. :) - Louis Gray
It would only have you, instead of Scoble, Arrington, and MG Siegler. - Cristo
Would be nice. But then, that wouldn't be too different than now. - Louis Gray
True. ;) - Cristo
It would support clustering by topic, would make it much easier to engage non-FriendFeed users in FF content, Q&A like Quora and group conversation and task management like Asana. - Kevin Fox from iPhone

Super Ball Bot | NASA
"Super Ball Bot is an all-in-one landing and mobility platform based on tensegrity structures, allowing for lower-cost, and more reliable planetary missions. Inspiration strikes from the most unlikely sources. Adrian Agogino and Vytas Sunspiral of NASA’s Intelligent Systems Division and Fellows of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts program (www.nasa.gov/niac) are in the process of developing a Super Ball Bot--a collapsible, terrestrial robot based on a tensegrity toy that could one day become important to NASA’s exploration goals. These planetary surface explorers are sturdier and can withstand a substantial impact. The Super Ball Bot has a sphere-like matrix of cables and joints that could withstand being dropped from a spacecraft high above a planetary surface and hit the ground with a bounce. Once on the planet, the joints could adjust to roll the bot in any direction while housing a data collecting device within its core. The lighter weight and maneuverability of the Super Ball... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

ISIS, 9/11, and the terrorism time loop - http://mondoweiss.net/2014...
As we mark another anniversary of the attacks in 2001, it seems as if little has changed. We appear to be caught in a time loop where history keeps repeating itself again and again. If it was al Qaeda in 2001 that represented the pinnacle of all things evil that animated the US invasion of Afghanistan and later Iraq, today its al Qaeda’s evil twin Islamic State that is prompting air strikes in Iraq and upcoming airstrikes on Syria as well. Once again the moral outrage over the killing of innocent Americans, this time two journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, serves to enable the US government to both carry out interventions in the Middle East and justify its domestic counter-terrorism policies. Virtually absent in the media circus around ISIS is an honest discussion of how the US War on Terror, rather than halting the growth of violent Islamist groups, actually fosters fundamentalism

The Origins of Yiddish—A Response to Philologos, Part http://languagesoftheworld.info/histori...
birthplace_yiddish-300x225.jpg
Show all
"The Jewish Daily Forward has recently published a four-part essay by “Philologos” on the origins of Yiddish (see here, here, here, and here). While the essay is well-researched and superbly written, I do feel that some clarifications, corrections, and a more in-depth look at some aspects of this problem are in order. Inspired by both Philologos’ original essay and the Jewish Passover tradition revolving around the number four, this response is quadripartite. I begin by summarizing the four (!) hypotheses relating to the origin of Yiddish reviewed by Philologus." - Maitani
could the khazarian hypothesis be more implausible you think? - Jarolim Gayri
I don't know enough about the genetic theory, but it seems clear that Khazarian as a Turkic language can't possibly be a major source of Yiddish, which is Germanic. - Maitani
Btw, the few times I listened to a person speaking Yiddish, I never had difficulties understanding what they were saying. There were a few words I hadn't heard before, or some whose usage seemed weird to me, but syntax, morphology and even most of the words sounded familiar. - Maitani
I was always taught that Yiddish could be considered a Middle High German offshoot. - kendrak
That's how it sounds. :-) The Rheinland hypothesis and the Bavarian scenario are both based on this assumption, they just elaborate on it historically and linguistically.I am interested in learning how the Sorbian scenario fits in the picture. I haven't learned enough yet, so far I have read only part 1 of the series. - Maitani
I need to read the study, obviously. :) Sorbisch is a weird element, because it's not Mittlehochdeutsch, but at the same time it's also not Niederdeutsch. Man am I out of practice. - kendrak
Sorbian is a Slavic language/a group of West Slavic dialects still spoken by a few people in parts of Eastern Germany. http://languagesoftheworld.info/wp-cont... - Maitani
Kendra, if it interests you, I really recommend having a look at Asya's article. She is absolutely on top of things, and at the same time entertaining. - Maitani

CLICS Database of Cross-Linguistic Colexifications - http://clics.lingpy.org/main...
CLICS Database of Cross-Linguistic Colexifications
"CLICS is an online database of synchronic lexical associations ("colexifications", see here for more information) in currently 221 language varieties of the world. Large databases offering lexical information on the world's languages are already readily available for research in different online sources. However, the information on tendencies of meaning associations they enshrine is not easily extractable from these sources themselves. This is why CLICS was created. It is designed to serve as a data source for work in lexical typology, diachronic semantics, and research in cognitive science that focuses on natural language semantics from the viewpoint of cross-linguistic diversity. Furthermore, CLICS can be used as a helpful tool to assess the plausibility of semantic connections between possible cognates in the establishment of genetic relations between languages." - Maitani

Interesting definitions from The Saker - an Anglo-Zionist http://vineyardsaker.blogspot.com/2014...
This is worth a read. I liked the way he conflated the Anglo and the Zio with the 1%. It's kind of like a Venn diagram. Lots of overlap. - Danaa
The phenomenon of the Neo-Con/Neo-Lib does indeed seem to have been invented in the Anglo-sphere. I think what The saker gets right is that - although they came from vastly different places - neocon, from imperial foreign policy (with zio overtones) and neoliberal from economic models, there does seem to have been a convergence of sorts. Possibly the overlap happened through the zionist/Jewish branches. Back to my Ivy model i think. - Danaa
Chu, Sean, this BTW is the kind of thing I had in mind for a tree of ideas. Strange branchings, convergences and confluences. Interestingly for the prefix "neo" - neo-conservative is hardly a true conservative and neo-liberal is hardly a true liberal. It seems that the neonatal phase of ideas is as different from its progenitor as neonatal is from prenatal. - Danaa
I am into prefixes today. Anyone noticed that the protagonist name in The matrix is "Neo"? must contemplate.... - Danaa
An aside; i highly recommend The saker blog. One of the few places where one can find dependable updates of the evolving military situation in Ukraine. Plus he gets some interesting summaries from others about other conflict areas of the world (SITREPS). - Danaa
The Vineyard of The Saker is a good companion blog to Moon of Alabama. those two are essential readings for maintaining sanity while observing the machinations of the empire of chaos. - Danaa
But when you mention the strange convergences, give me a few examples? I see the tree could be modeled as two sides of a leaf (Anglo/Zio). Although I almost feel like the Anglo formed the power structure, and Jews eventually found a way to move in to this power structure and replace the old anglo realm, like the universities. (I noticed sayer mentions banking) - Chu_
The saker's take is of course, not complete. For example, it obviously can't be just on the 1% level - think of the Christian Zionists on one side, and ultra-orthodox communities on the other side. So the basic concept needs ome extensions to "lower" levels, which is where the "branches" come in. - Danaa
Chu, I like your idea of the Anglo forming the power structure (cf, the tree trunk + lower branches?) with the jewish power structure basically "grafting" itself onto the original tree - surrounding the trunk and growing new branches to almost take over the original ones. I need to think through this idea, especially figure out what the roots are. Sometimes agricultural world can be inspiring....except for some reason I still got this invasive ivy image splashing around in the brain.... - Danaa
' what the roots are. Sometimes agricultural world can be inspiring....except for some reason I still got this invasive ivy image splashing around in the brain.... - Danaa )......I think what you need to liken the Zios grafting onto the US or Anglo's tree is the Kudzu weed................http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - American

Thucydides’ moral chaos | TLS - http://www.the-tls.co.uk/tls...
Thucydides’ moral chaos | TLS
"In the long hot summer of 427 BC, a quarrel broke out in the small Greek island city of Corcyra (modern Corfu). The city was then allied to Athens, the democratic superpower of the eastern Mediterranean. A group of Corcyrean aristocrats launched an abortive coup, in the hope of handing the city over to Athens’ rivals, the military oligarchy of Sparta. Corcyra fell into a savage civil war between pro-Athenian and pro-Spartan factions, ending (thanks to the arrival of an Athenian fleet) with complete victory for the democrats. For seven days, under the approving eye of an Athenian admiral, the pro-Athenian party systematically butchered their opponents. Fathers killed their own sons; men were dragged from the safety of the temples and slaughtered on the altars of the gods." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

Thank you! I have added Apologies to Thucydides to my reading list. - Maitani
Should you leave your enemies to coup another day? - Todd Hoff
Well, as we're once again finding out in real time, purging an entire faction tends to create power vacuums that get filled by people who are even worse than the ones you purged. - Victor Ganata
The Mongols decapitated the ruling class when they conquered. The US style of purge leaves a vacuum. But it doesn't have to. - Todd Hoff
We pretty much decapitated the Baathists in Iraq and now we have ISIS. Should we just have nuked all of Mesopotamia instead? - Victor Ganata
You decapitate to get rid of potential rebellion leadership. To occupy you use other strategies. The problem is the US doesn't want to occupy so the decapitation is counter productive. If we don't want to occupy and we can't find a strongman proxy to do the dirty work, then we shouldn't bother. - Todd Hoff
All through the Cold War we purged regimes that could potentially be sympathetic to Communists and replaced them with strongman proxies backed by U.S. armed forces, and that hasn't seemed to have turned out all that well, either. Although I guess we did win the Cold War, so it does depend on PoV and what you pick as your end point. - Victor Ganata
Worked pretty well, we didn't have WWIII. - Todd Hoff
Well, not yet, at least. But I suppose all you can really hope for is to delay the inevitable. - Victor Ganata
