Re: Inside Llewyn Davis - http://scripting.com/2013...
"Hey Bob -- I don't think it's worth that much effort -- it's not one of the great Coen Brothers movies. It's definitely a must-see, for the reasons I listed in the piece, but not worth a pilgrimage." - Dave Winer

"It seems like you must be pretty close. How about giving me exactly what I'm looking for? I promise to make something useful out of it. I tried authorizing on your site, but it hung. Could you give us a link to one of the sites you use Concord for, for navigation?" - Dave Winer

"Yes, I've been through that and picked the ones that fit. I had the video feed in the river for a few minutes, but it's a gusher -- they push so much video out through the feed, it was overwhelming. But thanks for the pointer! :-)" - Dave Winer

Re: Differences from Trex - http://fargo.io/docs...
"I don't assume these things will not come back into play. That was the problem with Jeffrey wanting an immediate answer. Maybe we will need named outlines. Could happen. It's already implemented and that code does not rely on Trex." - Dave Winer

Re: I wish I had a JavaScript shell that talked to Evernote - http://scripting.com/2013...
"1. I agree fully. It must come with OAuth already done. And a simple Hello World type app. Maybe something that converts every string in a notebook to uppercase and saves it back to Evernote. 2. I would like it for Facebook and Twitter, but I need it for Evernote." - Dave Winer

"I'd like to add this -- a lot of other people could put cool stuff in such a shell. It's a very potent place, that doesn't exist yet. We should make this happen." - Dave Winer

"That's an excellent summary. It could be that they aren't thinking about the damage they're causing. However, I think at this point one would have to be pretty gullible to believe that." - Dave Winer

Re: The Snowden leaks and the billionaire - http://scripting.com/2013...
"Hi Jason -- interesting point -- but it's pretty well refuted by this thread, imho. https://twitter.com/davewiner/... He talks about the number of hires they've made, and how that relates to their focus as a company. He does talk about it in the future tense, but it clearly has an existence in the present tense. My guess is that this hasn't been well thought through, and while that's understandable, because they're juggling vital information about our lives, and our relationship to our governments, and the secrets of the governments, a bit more scrutiny than has been evident from the press would probably be a good thing, looking forward. Especially since reporters are probably less likely to raise these questions about such a high profile journalism startup that's going to be spending $250 million at least (the company's boasting is the source) probably mostly on hiring reporters. ;-) I think we should err on the side of asking for more info, not less." - Dave Winer

"There have been a bunch of comments here from people who think this is their blog. It's not. Please read the commenting guidelines. It's worth it. This isn't like every other commenting section on the web. http://scripting.com/2013/08/2... Thanks! :-)" - Dave Winer

"I totally agree. That's why I put the NSA logo in the margin of this piece, to remind everyone that all this is a big distraction. That however, does not make the question go away. Sorry." - Dave Winer

Re: Greenwald, Pando, the hero and the billionaire - http://scripting.com/2013...
"You're doing the same thing he's been doing -- making it about the people asking the questions, not about the questions. I don't like the implication that I am "revealing my colors" -- what colors do you think I'm revealing? Or are you also talking over my head about the some other people? Can you imagine if a government stonewalled this way? It makes me all the more curious to know why it's so damned hard to just answer the questions." - Dave Winer

Re: Greenwald, Pando, the hero and the billionaire - http://scripting.com/2013...
"I don't doubt that Snowden could get a fairly large advance on a tell-all book, in theory -- but probably not from an American publisher, at least not while the incumbent President and NSA director, and Congress, are implicated. Maybe in a few years. However, if he took the money, whenever he did, it might look as if he stole the US secrets just to make a shitload of money. If he could make it clear that they were two separate acts, then -- no problem. But we know for sure that his adversaries would make a connection, even if they suspected that he took the secrets to enrich himself. As to the first question, my own opinion -- but circumstances say that he's not a mere employee. If anything we see that the shrewdness of Greenwald as a lawyer and a business person shines through. His response to the Pando piece reads like something a lawyer would write, more than a journalist. Make your case as black as you can, and assume your adversary will do the same. I think in journalism it's a..." - Dave Winer

Re: Greenwald, Pando, the hero and the billionaire - http://scripting.com/2013...
"No problem here with media being a business. Or if Greenwald gets rich from journalism, more power to him. It's just the connection between him getting rich and Snowden's sacrifice that feels dirty. And the concern that the public isn't being well-taken-care-of here. And his dismissal of the questions based on who's asking them. That's just ridiculous." - Dave Winer

"As I said above this is not about Ames or Carr. If you have more to say about that, say it elsewhere. Thanks." - Dave Winer

Re: Greenwald, Pando, the hero and the billionaire - http://scripting.com/2013...
"As I said above the Pando piece raised questions about Snowden, the NSA, and most importantly how well is the public's interest being cared for here. As a member of the public, that's my main concern. I realized someone needed to ask these questions whose credibility is not so easily impeached as Ames. Greenwald should have been able to do that for himself, by the way. It's not encouraging that he tried to muddy things up the way he did. You're doing the same thing here -- making it about Ames. It's not about Ames. If you have more to say about him, I suggest you write a blog post, or comment in response to his piece. No more about this here, thanks." - Dave Winer

"I'd agree with a slight modification to that -- as an adult it requires work to keep an open mind, but it is possible. Children are open to all possibilities. They have to be if they want to become adults. ;-)" - Dave Winer
