I’m using the recipe from the SD255’s recipe book, so we’ll see how it comes out.
475g strong granary flour
1.5 tsp sugar
1.25 tsp salt
50g coarsely chopped walnuts
Will report back in 5 hours.
I just mentioned the fact that I hardly use my Tumblr account these days, for lack of a desktop client, when my friend mentioned Tumblweed.org and bingo, here I am! This might result in me using Tumblr more… or it might not. We’ll have to see.
Oh noes! What am I going to do? Twitter is down for maintenance and now I have nowhere to get my fix!
My friend Steph suggests that I make a note of times, like now, when I feel really excited and happy and joyful, as a sort of talisman against times like yesterday, when I most definitely didn’t. The nice thing is I know exactly why I’m so happy today - I’ve got my nose buried in some really interesting research, and I’m thinking new (to me) thoughts, and I feel like I’m doing something really cool and fascinating. Oh, and the client I’m doing it for likes it too, which is even better. More please!
Reading about ‘between-group selection’ as an evolutionary force favouring behaviours such as altruism and wondering how it applies to social software.
Quote of the day: “Blogging and social software is great, but in the end, it’s about challenging closed cultures in business, not just using tools.”
Testing the TumblrBot IM tool, maybe this will help me Tumbl more.
Need to get more used to using Tumblr. I like the idea, but it doesn’t seem to have the tools I need to embed it in my day to day life yet.
A question for you. How much does reality TV, with its hidden cameras spying on participants, condition us to accept mass surveillance and CCTV. Here in London, we are each captured 300 times a day on camera, for our “safety and security”, apparently. There’s a doctoral thesis in there for someone.
When I was a kid, egg boxes used to get reused. Why don’t we do that anymore?
