Young, Black and Frisked by the N.Y.P.D.
"These experiences changed the way I felt about the police. After the third incident I worried when police cars drove by; I was afraid I would be stopped and searched or that something worse would happen. I dress better if I go downtown. I don’t hang out with friends outside my neighborhood in Harlem as much as I used to. Essentially, I incorporated into my daily life the sense that I might find myself up against a wall or on the ground with an officer’s gun at my head. For a black man in his 20s like me, it’s just a fact of life in New York. Here are a few other facts: last year, the N.Y.P.D. recorded more than 600,000 stops; 84 percent of those stopped were blacks or Latinos. Police are far more likely to use force when stopping blacks or Latinos than whites. In half the stops police cite the vague “furtive movements” as the reason for the stop. Maybe black and brown people just look more furtive, whatever that means. These stops are part of a larger, more widespread problem — a... more... - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet
Horribly sad. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It's institutionalized racism. It's when you cross the street with your kids because you see a black or brown guy walking towards you, regardless of how he's dressed or what he's doing. When you lock your car doors because the color of the neighborhood changes, regardless of the economic stature of the area. You see 3 or more black or brown guys hanging out and call them "thugs" or... more... - Anika
:( - Amit Patel
the gun-at-head part can't be legal, can it? - Big Joe Silence
nice - Mariya Khan
Considering that only about 5% of stops (regardless of color) result in arrests, it's hard to imagine how they even justify this practice. - Gabe
ok ok ok - Ruslan Zakirov
Why people put so much emphasis on complexion, which is just a wrapper of a beautiful soul. If you abuse someone because of his color, you are abusing god, because god resides in every human heart.. - Ajay Agrawal

I've got a great idea for a conference session. It's called "Whiskey with Zamms." You come with me to a bar, and you drink whiskey with me. If you last more than a half-hour of me going on about Swedish satanic metal or whatever, I'll buy you around. I'll only do it if I can get a sponsor.
And I mean, proper sponsorship. None of this mass-produced whiskey that advertises on TV. - Zamms
Or Lagavulin, which probably does advertise on TV, but "works like a depth charge... POW" http://www.esquire.com/feature... - Zamms
I have a bottle of Lagavulin at home. Suddenly thirsty. And I would sign up for this conference session in a heartbeat. - Hookuh Tinypants
Do you like Swedish satanic metal? - Zamms
I'm familiar with Bathory. Does that get me in the door at least? :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Oh, wanting whiskey gets you in the door. I'm testing your Zamms Talking Tolerance (ZTT). - Zamms
And interesting take on the Human Library concept (http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/detail...). Call it the Human Barfly Project? - John Dupuis
"Hey, I was wondering if I could borrow an Italian-American with an affinity for whiskey and metal and once met Doug Flutie." - Zamms
Practicing for this conference session tonight. Also: https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Zamms
Be a fascinating Kickstarter... "and for $100 you get to actually drink the #whiskey - WarLord
Wait wait wait. I don't remember "liking" this. This is brilliant. - Meg VMeg
It works at any conference! Also, keep in mind that your $100 contribution to my Kickstarter will significantly improve the whiskey we're drinking. - Zamms

"Love Letter to Japan" is why I bought the album, but my favorite is "Diamond Dave." - NOT THE CRICKET
It's a solid album. This track's been rolling around in my head for the past two days. - Jenny

I am so incredibly thankful for air conditioning.
We're at 97 at 4:30 PM - we'll probably peak out at 100 or a little over today. - teleken from BuddyFeed
It was in the 90s earlier. It's down to 87, but still feels ridiculously hot outside. #getmetoPNW - Kristin
There's some truth to what you hear about it out here - we don't have the humidity Texas has/had when I lived there. 100+ is actually tolerable in the shade. Also - shade actually matters here, a lot. - teleken from BuddyFeed
The PNW awaits! :) - Brent Schaus from iPhone

Eons ago, Napster had ALL of these Big Mama recordings that were of her earlier stuff and ton of old blues & jazz from the turn of the century, where they didn't even know who was performing. If they still have it, you should check it out. I've not been able to find them anywhere since. - Anika
Thanks Anika, I'll have a look for that. I've found a lot of her stuff on YouTube, and *ahem* by other methods. :) - Ken Morley
Love me some BMT. - Derrick

btw Louis, did you know Loic is Louis in "Breton"? We actually have the same first name - Loic Le Meur
Now I know. I knew France was a big fan of Louis. We were "elected" king more than a dozen times, no? - Louis Gray
Louis, does Loic call you Loo-ey? - Derrick
Derrick, I haven't noticed. Yesterday, when I abruptly and rudely called for him to come on stage to pose with Iain of TweetDeck and Nick of TweetMeme, he said "anything for Louis" and I believe I heard an "s". - Louis Gray
I used the "s" to make it sound english but yeah, no s pronounced in french - Loic Le Meur
I start my French classes in September for my trip next year. I wonder if Loic can tutor me. Louis, you're my "in". Make it happen! - Derrick
Cute as ever. - Anne Bouey
My suitcase is actually full of that! :D - shinchi

I've never seen it, in person. - Eric - Regulate
FYI (as of 12/30/11), I've got it packed up again and will be getting it on its way soon, coordinating a physical handoff rather than mailing for the next hop :) - mjc

That's so cool. Perhaps I will see it someday IRL. - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Holy crap, food in that thing is nearing three years old. Who is hoarding it? - Janet from FFHound!
I still have it, heh. I had a lot of craziness going on in my life - I guess I should throw out some of the old food and try and move it on its way.... - mjc
That would be wonderful, mjc! - Anne Bouey
Is it Joel+Michelle next? we never quite organized when to pass the box off even though I live(d) near them. do they still even live in florida? lol I don't know anymore :P - mjc
Here's the original set-up: http://friendfeed.com/friendf... I think it changed a bit when Michelle and Joel moved. You can DM them to get their address; I believe they're in Florida. - Anne Bouey
thanks mjc, please do continue and let us know the progress. - AJ Batac
Bumping so this doesn't reach a whole year in limbo. I saw the date of the original post. - Janet

Me and Rachel were just talking about your new ink there, my friend. - Derrick

I just came back from an evening with Sharon Salzberg. I even asked her a question! She is so kind. Here's what I want to remember:
re: starting over (and over, and over, and over again) when your mind wanders when you're sitting: "being able to start over is the best way to make progress." - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
doing daily meditation - 10-20-30 minutes - helps us remember our skills of returning to the breath, to this moment, when we're in a "situation." - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
"exercising the 'letting go' muscle." *sigh* - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
she's talking about her new book Real happiness at work : meditations for accomplishment, achievement, and peace. Anyone want to read it with me?! http://www.worldcat.org/title... - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
sure. maybe that would get me to actually read it :) - maʀtha
I keep meaning to do the "stealth meditation" I read about the other day: listen more than you talk in an appointment. I thought that would be a good reference interaction activity. But I haven't done it yet. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
