To catch you up, you might have missed ๐Ÿ”— ๐Ÿ“ผ this video .. you can see it at the bottom of the page.

When I first saw it, I liked the visual effect - but really - not the message. As I wrote over on ๐Ÿ”— โ€ฆ

I love Rick Beato’s podcast channel and Ted Gioia’s writing and so was delighted to watch this meeting of minds last night …

At the beginning of the year I had grand plans for this series. A daily long-form post about something that was rattling my brain that day. And then life. For a while, I was even just dropping markers - to revisit. I came to realise that part of the problem was the complexity of the structure for each post - so that went away. Simplicity really is rather nice. As I write on 240413, I am now going back and filling in the gaps. PLUS - unless something strikes me immediately, I will not classify until the end of the day and go back to move one of the posts of the day into the 366. Also - if you are wondering how I have update the words at the bottom of over 100 posts at a stroke, well - THANK YOU Andy Sylvester and his Glossary plugin.

๐Ÿ”— Cigarettes After Sex are playing Madison Garden.

Don’t worry, I hadn’t heard of them either.

๐Ÿ”— ๐ŸŽต Apocalypse is their ‘biggie’. (1,233,307,237 streams. Apparently, I must have been under my rock at the time.)

Just a BIG shout out to @vladcampos for ๐Ÿ”— ๐Ÿ“ผ this video which talks you through how to rearrange the categories on the archive page of your MicroBlog.

GREAT JOB SIR - most excellent. Really really clear - and it worked first time.

AND of course - big shout out to @otaviocc for the new page.

I did it and it did exactly what it said on the tin.

Sadly it still isn’t quite right - i think mainly because Vlad is using Tiny Theme and I am using Hitchens and I am guessing some kind of styling conflict kicked in and it threw out the rest of my page (like Vlad I am not a developer), but no big deal, we just rolled back and maybe not at 11:32 pm I will look at the coe and se if I can parse what should be changed.

Vlad - one additional thing - rather than saving the name of a page and creating a new one - you can in fact click on the original page and when you save it - it automatically creates the edited page in the block at the top - that will save a few nano seconds.

Anyway - over and out - GREAT job. Thank you.

๐Ÿ”— ๐Ÿ“ผ This an 11 year old Ted Talk featuring Pablo Holman - demonstrating hacks on the stage. ELEVEN years ago .. so what 2013?

It includes a shout out to Kim Cameron who Pablo called The Chief Privacy Architect at Microsoft, which indeed at one time he was - though Kim retired from Microsoft May, 2011, the shout being an announcement that his hacks allowed him to track KIm as he moved through a conference - and … well, I will let you watch the video.

Imagine what is possible today. And you wonder why we have problems.

Kim of course is the author of The Seven Laws of Identity, that I have had the occasion to refer to on this very blog and it is unclear if Pablo’s call out of what he achieved in tracking Kim had any connection to Kim’s retirement - and to be sure I am not suggesting that at all, and to my knowledge nothing suggests that this was the case.

Fast Forward to last year and here he is again with another Ted Talk ‘Nuclear Reactors Can Solve Inequality’. ๐Ÿคฏ

Both Talks were just absolutely inspiring

So imagine my delight to discover this one …. where he is talking at Charlie Muirhead’s CogX last year. I haven’t watched it yet - saved for tonight, but I sure am looking forward to it.

The CogX Talk

Have to say that were somebody to back me up against a wall - put a gun to my head and ask me ๐Ÿ–‡๏ธ who my top 10 artists - ever - were, XTC would be on that list.

Just lovely and a tremendous trip down memory lane.
