Spotted – So Sharing (3)

Who knew how much you all were missing out on before we kicked off this new category of posts … basically a collection of ‘Many More Things’. Leaking Like A Collander GOP Data Firm Accidentally Leaks Personal Details of Nearly 200 Million American Voters .. maybe it is the conspiracy theorist in me – but … Continue reading “Spotted – So Sharing (3)”

Nothing To See Here …

.. move along now. This chap’s eye was caught by … … this ‘billy do’ he spotted here. What other proof does one need that there is something happening to the global climate. Now – of course – that is not to say that is humankind’s fault. Which is why I offer you this second billy … Continue reading “Nothing To See Here …”

Still Thinking About Paris

As this Chap mused ruefully, earlier… When US businesses are speaking out en masse in favor of the Paris Agreement, on business grounds, and the head of the EPA is agin it — well, summat’s definitely nasty oop i’t woodshed. The  evident caprice and almost-risible evasions and denials suggest strongly this was not, shall we … Continue reading “Still Thinking About Paris”

Way Ahead

… and if you are not – maybe you should at least plan to be. Instead of tending towards a vast Alexandrian library the world will become a computer, an electronic brain, exactly as in an infantile piece of science fiction.

The Chaps considered this both bore reprinting in full, as it was at Socrates Redux, and a full response, … Continue reading “Socrates Redux — Redux”

As a kindness to the Other Chap, John thought… he would assuage Graham’s evident fears of sinister machines by demonstrating others simply quaint in their pointlessness. This one mainly just protects itself, in the best non-violent tradition. while these just — well, see for yourself. Rather sweet, really. Hope this helps, OtherChap. The Other Chap … Continue reading “No Point, That’s The Point”

Socratic Angst

Graham is concerned about Socrates … … well, not Socrates exactly. But it starts with him. Unexamined is one thing, but what if the exam already took place without our knowledge? This chap continues with the fear that if the Unexamined status were ended right now, he might actually fail… Or considered another way — … Continue reading “Socratic Angst”
