A line from Bruce Sterling A London based electronic music producer uses Ukrainian water pipes & huge funnel clouds to create movie special effects. She calls this a non-populist activity, for she sees the resultant out- puts as works of scientific art. There are images of wreckage & personal belongings, the inner workings of cells. Debris in the air, but an FX hurricane manages to keep the place looking spotless. A line from Léopold Sédar Senghor A user-centric evaluation framework means older people have more problems learning new systems, even when there is improved access to a variety of language structures. We noted an anomaly: re- dundancy on both the systems & user side means that nominal data is never uniform in the interval between successive work- outs. When you're indoct- rinated, not even a lullaby will smooth the readings. A line from Stormy Daniels I usually stay away from writing self-centered self- help articles, let the feed dogs pull the triangles into position. That center triangle is very critical. But, different houses, a different set of rules for the game of Go. A year of headlines about Russian interference; & I feel like I'm running through a minefield looking for red lines to remove. A line from Cyndi Lauper In the Darwinian world of the digital switchover, broad- casters were evacuated due to a major embolism, possibly the biggest thing to happen since the introduction of color. Don't blame the government— the High Court judgement was flawed. Amnesty International has been sounding the alarm for more than a year that the TV channels had strong incentives to grow their audiences through human trafficking. Now they sit there, heels on fire, cutting every cost without fear of any penalty.
