alot of words...every name mentioned more than once... googles engine will love it. chomp chomp.

the context will be lost. but i and i hope a few will appreciatte it all.

jarons got a book in paper..at least that forces context without the machines hunger.;)till google scans it and his royalty checks dwindle..but hes on googles payroll anyway he says.-consulting.

Cantor-- met him in 1988, actually he was founder of macromedia- macromind- which gave use a few actual you pay for tools for new media-that beagt this whole mess for content-control--unwittigly at first ...itw asnt a plot..just "new" and open to possiblilites yet undone creativley-- easy interactive- easy distribution of content--

i actually gave him/wife the first check-(25usd) from NYC-she said- for a commecial usage license of his "engine" for a diskette sales piece built in / released using Director 1.0..

all very comercial and fair.... but all good things must end when you can taste being an emporer, not just a wealthy cobbler... didnt work out for him that way...Elba always awaits.

so after a decade of tools for others to make theri own property we know have adobe- flash- and ipads that will control all content...-- fyi- read my comment-1st on list. also an early macromind engine project..

those who refused to eat their young.... we figured it out within a short few years by 1995.;) remember- all tech evangelists come from the Apple..i know- i had a robe too..


so keen in 2006 was really late to the "new techcom" party;)

jaron took a decade to cash in...then to mea cupla in the last few years-- at least he menched up.

but religion and delusion are strong things to combat.. and without a good sized solar flare, or machine run genocide of humans,

the machine will continue to run...until it stops... always does.

and its creators will ALL be the food. they just refuse to know it yet..

delusion- what i learned the northern californian state really is.

and its really "viral".;)

and it really "loves the net"

perfect for virtuality... its gonna be a long haul.

Well, Cube, I don't write for "google's engines". I don't even get why it would matter if you mentioned a name once or twice on a page. Wouldn't it know how to remove redundancy like that? Isn't it considered spamming to fill up pages with nonsense words or names to try to get things to show up, don't they do something about that?

I sometimes see my name or nonsense versions of my blog showing up on some weird Internet pages that make no sense, temp blogs, blogs made by anonymous people. What is the point of that?

Maybe my blog will load slower now than others and be less of interest to the beast : )

I'm trying, as usual, to make sense of what you've written as if it were an apocalyptic chapter in the Bible.

So...all these geeks once worked for Apple, including you? Is that point number one?

And they all lived in Northern California, which is a state of mind? point no. 2

And they all believed that they could get people like yourself (a developer) to work for free and supply them content if they gave you free tools? Is that your point?

What does "Elba always awaits" mean? You are always cryptic, so try to make sense.

It seems to mean this guy's shtick was to have "openly available" code to give himself street cred, so he'd give it to you if you asked, but I don't know if he exercised any filtration that way, or what the deal was. And mainly he seems interested in charging, and that's fine, I'm all for that. It's just that even as he makes a buck and doesn't play the collective farm game with the other GPL nerds, he is pushing communism. That's what I find hypocritical. It's like "communism for thee and not for me".

"This is going to be a hugely long, rambling post, and if you can't handle such long posts by reading them or browsing the headlines and sampling them, move along."

Thanks for the heads up, I took your advice.

hey i get to write anyway i want as well.;)

1."google" - point being that by "just' writing your opposition to the way it is.. online -you "do" empower it. name drops, quantity, not quality is the adding machines only power.- maybe thats why i write the way i do....;)

2. "So...all these geeks once worked for Apple, including you? Is that point number one?" well no- more that evangelical tech selling began around Apple-GUY Kawasaki- others and that YES- it shaped all the kids today...and it was religion and delusion.

3 "And they all lived in Northern California, which is a state of mind? point no. 2"-- well most did yes.. and actaully all worked around the same building-where WIRED was in SF... easy stories when organic. worlds.inc etc are only a florr below you..or at burning man tents next door.;)--yes delusion is the state of mind in Northern Ca..live here a few years..;)


4. "And they all believed that they could get people like yourself (a developer) to work for free and supply them content if they gave you free tools? Is that your point?"
well im a designer. creative- as jaron was at heart- why he "turned on them" in his book..--he never got to "piant"- they kept making the brushes more expensive and sooner obsolete..."
free- only came by late 90s.. from 85-95 you paid for software... free wasnt a biz plan--but "some" got vcs to make it viable...--- and then create monopolies- like Autodesk for exmaple...by 2005 - well it was a nessasity to give it for free--web2.0 was born... yada yada..

5. "What does "Elba always awaits" mean? You are always cryptic, so try to make sense".

"emporers end up on elba --always a new kid to want the throne- the end of software sales and a 10 million dollar bisness, and the start of software is free- and a 100 million dollar valuation or bust./ -- macromedia sold to adobe-- and cantors web2.0 wanna bes since he left macromedia a decade ago. from rich cobbler- to wanna be emporer-- he lives in a virtual elba for last years.... funny how you only heard of him now-- hes been "irrlevant" to web20 crowd for a decade.

6. "It seems to mean this guy's shtick was to have "openly available" code to give himself street cred, so he'd give it to you if you asked, but I don't know if he exercised any filtration that way, or what the deal was. And mainly he seems interested in charging, and that's fine, I'm all for that. It's just that even as he makes a buck and doesn't play the collective farm game with the other GPL nerds, he is pushing communism. That's what I find hypocritical. It's like "communism for thee and not for me"."

nah-- wasnt his beginnings-- his schitck now is --just that-- schitck --- his value-- was making MM director--- 20 years ago. and pricing it at 500-1000 usd.

anyhow-- he might be a communist, but his only real success-value to "culture" was as a simple cobbler seller of tools.

anyhow- like i said... the days of using his tools for creatives to create artifacts of culture...or even free commerce

are long gone... and yeah its possible hes just selling the latest "tools"...

those old school northern california tools for "living"

can i haz a crystal and some life force pleez. but make mine-- yours.:)

chomp chomp google...yum...;)

You have half my lifelong worship and devotion having used "Goatse" in a piece.

If you squeeze in "Pedobear" I am a 100% follower for life.

Um, "renaissance costume," you are blocked and banned and reported as spam.

Nobody wants to click on your link and buy your renaissance costumes for your LARP.

People who come on blogs and put up lame or even gushingly praiseworthy tripe like "love your piece" or pretend to engage in the discussion merely to put up an unpaid ad link that they expect someone to click on are low scum on the Internet. Go buy an ad somewhere and stop trying to post here. You must use a SL first and last recognizable valid name or a RL valid name or blogger's name, not a merchandise website name.

Gwyn, see how Prok ignored my comment? You should learn from that.
