It's even worse than it appears..
Most tweets promote the author rather than good ideas, although they think they're promoting good ideas. Most of the people who read them, if any do, already agree with them, or don't and are using their tweets to evoke strong body chemistry that they are physically addicted to. #
I'm watching The Bear on Hulu. Really good. As I watch it, I realize how far we have to go in software development to reach the coordination of creativity you see in the kitchen of a small restaurant, understanding it's a dramatization and not to take it too literally. #
  • There was an excellent MSNBC show about the Civil War last night. At one point they interviewed a current-day Confederate. They almost got to the best question to ask such a person, which is:#
  • Would you like to be a slave?#
  • I'd love to hear the answer to that.#
  • Mom, dad and their perfect American kids.#
  • When I was young, this was considered the ideal 20th Century life. #
  • My mother had this in her head, that if we were better children, or whatever, that her life would be like this. #
  • Occasionally I would tell her that she was no June Cleaver herself. #
  • We were a post-war refugee family trying to live up to what was expected of us. #
  • What a crock of shit that was. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
