"I looked several times to see that it was on, but there was no way to turn it on or off. You could put a password on it, but I don't give a shit if my neighbor wants to start playing porn on my TV at 2AM (well I guess I do care, but I don't see it happening)." - Dave Winer

"It was kind of a hippie dippie-ish summer camp. They let us decide what we wanted to do, within parameters. It was the kids who wanted to go hear Muddy Waters. ;-)" - Dave Winer

"Yes they are all on the same LAN, an Airport Extreme. I checked the Airport Utility and all the devices are showing up, including the Apple TV." - Dave Winer

"I went to the Apple Store on 5th Ave and bought a new Apple Remote. Got everything all set up, or so I thought -- but: 1. The Remote app doesn't like the device, screen shot below. 2. The AirPlay icon does not show up on either my iPhone or my iPad. It always goes like this for me, btw. Dave http://static.scripting.com/la..." - Dave Winer

Re: Where's Circa's RSS feed? - http://scripting.com/2014...
"As I point out in the piece, what they're missing is that the people who use RSS are often people who create flow for them. It's a link in the chain. They probably had similar logic that said people don't read news on the desktop and laptop computers, so we don't need a web interface. Now they have one. Probably because no one knew they existed, because that's how we find new stuff, through the web. And RSS. It's really limiting thinking, and results in limited growth -- for them. I've been doing fine without Circa. Just decided to use them as a case study." - Dave Winer

"That's not all that intuitive. Thing is, I have an AppleTV in the room. Must not be broadcasting in the right way, and of course I don't have a remote, so I can't poke around to see. They should have made a way to control the fucker from a Mac laptop or desktop. It could show up as an icon on my desktop and if I had a little utility app that let me configure it. I need to have a laptop to do iTunes stuff. I know they're migrating away from it." - Dave Winer

"Where's the Airplay icon? http://static.scripting.com/la... Not being a wiseass, I just don't see it, and no one shows you what it's supposed to look like in any of the docs. They don't seem to know how to take a screen shot at Apple." - Dave Winer

Re: Why age in software is bullshit - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Exactly. I came up with a new slogan during the period I was working on the OPML Editor after forking it from the Frontier-kernel list: "Slow down to hurry up." In the four years or so I was working on it, I re-did a lot of the modules in Frontier.root, amazingly things that I had spent years dealing with, when it came time to rewrite them, almost always took a day or at most two. A great example is scheduler2. I rewrote it in a few hours. Haven't had to touch it in years. It just works." - Dave Winer

Re: Why age in software is bullshit - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Yup -- I have the same experience. Also, sometimes I plan out a day's work, and sit down and it gets done in the first hour. I have all this time, but haven't thought out the next steps. When I was younger, I would just plow ahead, without any preparation. Undoing the mistakes I made usually took longer than making them, when I actually undid them. Sometimes they ended up in the shipping product, and once there, they had to be supported for years. I can show you a number of places in Frontier.root like that. ;-)" - Dave Winer

Re: How good is my mind? - http://scripting.com/2014...
"I know what you mean, I see people doing it all the time. I think it's a way of getting you to do their work for them sometimes. I also remember seeing an interview with 60 Minutes producer Don Hewitt, as it turns out a few weeks before he died. He said in the interview that he just couldn't keep up with the technology anymore. And you could tell he meant it. This is a guy who had been at the leading edge of media technology for most of his life, was one of the major innovators. There does come a time, it seems, when you just can't deal with it any more. Your mind gives up. I saw it in my own father, shortly before he died. I was trying to show him how Twitter worked. He wasn't getting it. This is a guy who prided himself on understanding computers, in every way possible, his whole adult life. He told me he would be pushing up daisies soon, and there was no point. His words. He had given up. And he was within his rights to do that. I didn't argue. But I'm so far from there it's..." - Dave Winer

Re: Movies for me at 20 - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Yes, that's called Suspension of Disbelief. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S... You get sucked into the story, you forget you're in a theater or on an airplane. You exist in its context. That's the first part of why I put something on my list -- it's a good movie. Second part is that it gives us something to talk about that's worth talking about. Exposes one of the that humans spend their whole lives pondering. I figure that I would want to start doing that as early as possible with as much information as possible. Movies, good ones, by thoughtful people, provide an incredibly compact package for all that. It takes a couple of hours to do a bunch of living, esp if there's an adult around to talk about it with afterwards. I want to have more interesting conversations with my young self, basically. ;-)" - Dave Winer

"This is a good list, we have a lot of similar tastes in movies. Fight Club was already on my list. I added Royal Tenenbaums (I didn't have a Wes Anderson movie!) and also added Fantastic Mr Fox and Rushmore. Also added No Country for Old Men. Hannah and Her Sisters." - Dave Winer

"You can turn off the drop shadow in v0.60, released today. Not sure what you're looking for in font style. You can also use any Google Font you want in v0.60, and some of them are bolder than others, and others are more italic than others. However I'll take a specific look at this in an upcoming release." - Dave Winer

"Citizen Kane -- great movie, but how relevant to the world a 20-year-old is growing up in? There are tons of movies from the 30s and 40s that I love, but am not putting on the list. Re the others -- I have not seen them! Maybe you all should be making a list for me! :-)" - Dave Winer

Re: Movies for me at 20 - http://scripting.com/2014...
"I added Good Will Hunting and Apocalypse now, both oversights. Not sure about the others. I've seen them, and even re-watched Field of Dreams recently. One of the criteria of the movies is if they provide a lot of life lessons, and stuff to talk about, for a young person approaching adulthood, with lots of ideas and lots of questions." - Dave Winer
