The Sunday Diigo Links Post (weekly)

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

Social media creepies « samothrace Although not quite (yet) an example of cyber-stalking, I found Victoria Klassen’s description of an online-generated encounter with a person who feels entitled to finger-wag her for some perceived moral or behavioral shortcoming(s) noteworthy because it all happened locally. I’m not sure whether that makes it even creepier or somehow […]

Made me comment: Brendon Wilson on Canada and Its Tech Future

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

I came across Brendon J. Wilson’s excellent blog post, Does it matter if the future isn’t available in Canada? last week and felt compelled to comment. Brendon’s post addresses a response to Macleans Magazine’s article You can’t buy that here, which, as he wrote, mirrored concerns he already expressed in a March 2009 post, Borders […]

The Sunday Diigo Links Post (weekly)

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

Below is the Sunday Links post, but before we get to that, here are two blog posts where I left comments recently. One was Catherine Novak‘s post about the Shoal Point Moka House tweetup two days ago. I mentioned that Starbucks, for example, has policies around filming/ photographing on their premises that make what happened […]

Comment on Kevin Kelly’s “4 Arguments Against Technology”

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

I just responded to Kevin Kelly‘s 4 Arguments Against Technology. He’s compiling a list, which he wants to flesh out – so that he can write better arguments in defense of technology. So far he has 1. Contrary to nature; 2. Contrary to humans; 3. Contrary to technology itself; 4. Contrary to God. I added […]

Drug use as side effect of suppressing innovation and risk-taking?

Saturday, December 13th, 2008

The other day Rob Randall posted an entry, Amsterdam cracks down on prostitution, cannabis: lessons for Victoria?, on which I left a long comment. Rob’s post was about how Amsterdam is reconsidering its liberal laws regarding drugs (and prostitution). My comment wasn’t about Amsterdam or about liberalizing drug laws (as such), but more discursive, “thinking-out-loud” […]

Comment on BC Supreme Court Ruling re. Camping in Parks

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Tim Ayres is a realtor in Sooke, BC, who blogs about real estate and Victoria issues.  I’ve seen his Twitter updates in the Twitter Local Net, but haven’t been following his blog.  The other day, however, I saw that someone I follow on Twitter twittered that he had left a comment to Tim’s video post, […]

Sometimes I see spots, and they’re granular…

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

It’s a weird sensation: take a basic idea — but it has to be something big, like …oh, beauty — and then read around in various and different-from-one-another fields, and let the basic idea act like a filter, …or is it like a connector?  Whichever, but you begin to notice basic transferability or kinship between […]

CityStates: Commentary on an Urban World: Kalokairi Calling: Mama Mia! and ‘Redesigning the American Dream’ Michael Dudley, who only the other day came out with a brilliant analysis of The Dark Knight, now looks at Mama Mia! across a range of feminist texts as well as some urbanist readings. Fascinating stuff, a must-read… tags: michael_dudley, […]

Old vs. New: Extreme Edition | weeasssuburb Dan Bertolet of Seattle-based blog “Huge ass city” spent some time visiting Medfield, Massachusetts (where I gather he was raised). He temporarily renamed his blog “Wee ass suburb.” This particular entry looks at two houses — one, the Dwight-Derby house from 1621, the other a 2005 “Extreme Makeover” […]
