Magic Bus!

Open thread, then.

Anyone have any thoughts on the upcoming soverign debt financial crisis?

Can we really borrow from here to eternity at 0%?

julie said...

I doubt it.

Suddenly, this idea doesn't seem half so crazy, although I'd be more interested in building a place with a Judeo-Christian moral code. As it sounds in the blurb, it would be an anarchist's wet dream; regardless, if this guy really thinks he can establish a colony "free from the laws, regulations, and moral codes of any existing place," he doesn't know people - or social networks - nearly as well as he thinks.

Ah! Sure makes it easier for me to catch up!

Enjoy!

JP said...

It sure is quiet in here.

julie said...

It's the Doledrums...

Van said...

(It's a vacation. Just sayin')

John Lien said...

@julie. Thanks for introducing me to The La's.

Oh, I see they have come and gone.

I'm a sucker for that 60's Merseybeat sound even if it came from the early 90s.

Sarah Connor - Sara Connor, please report to the preparation area - Calling Sarah Connor, please review this and report in ASAP to the preparation area -

"What I hold in my hand as I speak," said IBM Research project leader Dharmendra Modha, in an interview with CNET, "is our first cognitive core that combines computing in the form of neurons, memory in the form of synapses, and communications in the form of axons...(and) in working silicon, and not PowerPoint."

That is all.

Van,
What do they call it, I forget the term, how one can know God by describing what He isn't.
That's what the IA researchers tell me from their discoveries; that they are not moving toward what consciousness is, but proving what it isn't or in a way possibly refining what this very large unknown thing we call consciousness is.
So, I thank them.

julie said...

Rick, I believe the word is "apophatic."

@ John - you're welcome, though I must give credit where it's due; I learned about The La's from Bob, a couple years back.

Rick said...

Thanks, Julie.

julie said...

Word of the day: Repuberty

JP said...

<< crickets chirping >>

Van said...

[STOMP]
Not anymore.

zThis is an interesting idea. Seems like there was a lot of conversation going on, back when the blog had that music widget on the sidebar, at least for a little while. Could be fun to not just discuss music, but actually listen at the same time every now & then...

John Lien said...

@julie. Listening room sounds like a cool idea. Still in the discovery phase of "The La's". Shook me out of my country blues rut. I go into music infatuation/rut cycles.

julie said...

John - I know how that goes. Find something new, then listen so much you almost get burned out on it. I don't do that as much these days, but back when it was all about buying an album and listening straight through I did quite a bit.

Re. the Listening Room, seems like it might be fun to have a beer o'clock music channel every now and then. Bring your own tunes...
