"Makes sense. Please let me know when you have a post and I'll circulate it." - Dave Winer
Re: Ebola is fearful for good reason - http://scripting.com/2014...
"This really should be a blog post. It's got a lot of good info in it, and it's lost down here in a comment. Hard to point to, hard to read, and people don't really take comments that seriously. This is one thing we can all do to improve quality of information flow. Presentation matters. Where you put your ideas matters too." - Dave Winer

"In this case there's LOTS of fuck-all we can do about it. Learn how not to spread it, so if we happen to get the opportunity to spread it, we decline. And consider all possibilities, no matter how unthinkable. Like this: What a great weapon Ebola would be if you wanted to kill civilization. Not saying anyone does, but if.. That might be something we can't do fuck-all about. But this is still very early." - Dave Winer

"Perfect. So the ideal HDMI router would display the name that's coming over the wire. That's exactly how it SHOULD work. Someone was doing their job. ;-)" - Dave Winer
"1. Watch the video, it explains how the character count works. 2. If we changed the URL then the link you just pushed to Twitter would be broken. 3. I don't understand this. Sorry. I really tried." - Dave Winer

"Eventually you will be able to store it in your own space, for now it's on radio3.io." - Dave Winer

"Can't do it. A lot of them are AVIs and iTunes only understands MP4. One of the downsides of having a vendor who's picky about which standards they'll support." - Dave Winer
Re: The backs of receivers today suck - http://scripting.com/2014...
"I really don't care about editing the names. If I could manage to think of my Mac as VCR2 for all these years, I could also see it as HDMI2. I understand why you do the setup for your customers. It's a kind of lock-in for you. ;-)" - Dave Winer

"That was the whole point of this piece." - Dave Winer

"Actually this receiver looks pretty good. http://www.amazon.com/Denon-AV... Check out the back panel. Much better than the one above." - Dave Winer
Re: The backs of receivers today suck - http://scripting.com/2014...
"No. No. It's not that complicated. Just use the numbers, as I explain in the piece." - Dave Winer
Re: The backs of receivers today suck - http://scripting.com/2014...
"They better be good at those prices! Couldn't find any back panel screen shots, so I looked on Google. https://www.google.com/search?... Seems they haven't discovered HDMI?" - Dave Winer

"I wonder who he imagines those people are and how they keep people out of what? This is a new weird idea to me." - Dave Winer

"You should check it out. It's FYI in the browser, written in JavaScript. Lots more goodies if you continue exploring." - Dave Winer

"It'd be kind of funky to get an LBBS running. I wonder if anyone has a copy? I don't think I do. ;-(" - Dave Winer
Re: Young technologists love lock-in? - http://scripting.com/2014...
"It's always nap time Dick. ;-) These days I like JavaScript. But I designed my own language, in Frontier, so I know exactly what language I want. I still use it for some things, but JS is much better supported. Even though Google can't fix the goddam bugs in Chrome. Right now the clipboard and debugger are broken. You know we've come a long way and the software today works WORSE than it did back in Computer Plus days." - Dave Winer
Re: Young technologists love lock-in? - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Dick great to hear from you. Thankfully our CPUs run at much higher rates than they used to and the "verbosity" isn't a performance issue in any apps I've been doing lately. Likewise with bandwidth and data storage. In a world that has YouTube in it, it's hard to think of tags as being too big. Even a very large XML or JSON file is tiny compared to an MP4." - Dave Winer

Re: Source code in CMSes - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Or in case something better comes along that's a superset, or has bug fixes, or performs better. If you have the source you're not locked in." - Dave Winer
Re: Source code in CMSes - http://scripting.com/2014...
"I'm mostly interested in having an example to explain the concept to people who aren't familiar with using an outliner to structure web content. Now with Markdown as an example, I have one. ;-)" - Dave Winer
Re: Source code in CMSes - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Depends on who's doing the rendering. If you want the CMS to be open to external rendering systems, i.e. ways to create content that the people who did the CMS might not have envisioned when they created it, then you absolutely need to store both teh source and the rendering. If you're using Markdown, which is very lightweight, and widely deployed, no you don't need to store the rendering." - Dave Winer
