Criticism of Israel is not anti-semitism.

Criticism of Laura Kuenssberg and other female journalists is not misogyny or abuse.

Criticism of female politicians is not misogyny or abuse.

Anti-semitism, misogyny and abuse of people in the public arena does exist and should rightly be disavowed. But reasoned and intelligent criticism of the same should not automatically be evidence of abuse.

Examples. Try working in Vax as well.

Pro-GMO, AGW Believers = Ecomodern
Pro-GMO, AGW Skeptics = GWPF
Anti-GMO, AGW Believers = Greens
Anti-GMO, AGW Deniers = Anti-science conspiracy nuts

Pro-Nuclear, AGW Believers = Ecomodern, Lovelock
Pro-Nuclear, AGW Skeptics = GWPF, Lukewarmists
Anti-Nuclear, AGW Believers = Greens (especially EU)
Anti-Nuclear, AGW Deniers = Anti-science conspiracy nuts

The one I find weird is belief in science re GMO but disbelief of climate science.

How are Houston and Florida coping? Because Puerto Rico sure isn't.

If you're under 60, you weren't promised flying cars but Blade Runner. So retro-futurism is now "a grim-cyberpunk dystopia".

Interesting. In 30 years there'll be a short story collection that will define a new genre and it will include a story called "The Gibson Continuum". The one where the narrator starts hallucinating shattered buildings with Banksy murals overlaying their spotless, post-scarcity reality.

One of Gibson's aphorisms.

Old people, to the young, appear to have made some sort of inexplicably terrible decision to become old.

9 mixes that make up several hours worth of Grant's DJ selections some of which are his own productions.

It's ALL good. So-ooooh good.

Fidget & Gurn
It's 2am. Molly and her friends keep treading on your toes as they push past you on the sticky floor.

Blue Bass Shoes
Arches blackness. Foot shuffle. Bass wind. T-shirt rattle. Lights. Cloakroom. iPod. Automatic. Home.

Sweet Dreamz
Wrap me up in cotton wool. A few more hours and I'll be asleep.

Armchair Therapy
Lonely headphones in a comfortable armchair. No rush, no fuss.

A mix for a typical Sat night out. Can you put music to each time period?

Drama Llama Diva
Pre-loading before the night out. So much emotion, so little time.

Lounge Step
If cocktail bars played decent music for the 1st martini at 7:30pm, this would be it.

Living in the Happy House
Getting in the groove, in the happy place, with the happy smile.

Snap, Crackle & Pop
Break down, Build, Drop, Repeat. Stabbing the eardrums with icicles of compressed mid-range attack. Are we having fun yet?

1/2

IDC used to do analyses of things like growth in total information and total information storage. In 2011, information (whatever that meant, in bytes) was doubling in

I was trying to find the name of that Brazilian artist that Bruce Sterling mentioned in the 2011 State of the World discussion on The Well. The one that does anthropophagic Syncretism linked to the Tropicalia and Abravanista movements.

Her name's Cibelle Cavalli

In the process I re-discovered a whole bunch of obsessions I had then about exponentials and retromania. 6 years on, I think they need another airing.

@cypnk @luciferMysticus The other real old school thing I need is a proper FIFO sync for an iPod Classic. I use winamp to copy files across but it's all a bit manual as the winamp sync isn't quite clever enough. I want to always copy latest updates and clear enough space from the very oldest stuff.

@luciferMysticus @cypnk

Still running winamp? Works fine, but under win10 on a library on a home NAS it occasionally pauses. And if you pause and wait too long, it won't start playing again. Strange.

Still my fav music player. Have never found anything better. And still using the 10 year old beta last.fm scrobbler.

You know that paper that appeared this week, that said climate change was happening slower than we thought, and so we had more time to stay below 1.5C

Massive, massive, troll. And unbelievably successful as a troll because the world's MSM, all the deniers, all the AGW concerned people, bought into it and amplified it. We all swallowed it, hook, line and sinker.

And the timing. Just as USA/Trump are rejecting Paris.

IMHO, of course,
