thinking about it ... didn't RobotWisdom invent Twitter-style microblogging

Is it just me is there a YASNS surge going on at the moment? Yeah, I got sucked into Facebook and discovered Victoria Real, the Musical

While the Runtimers seem to be more LinkedIn kind of people. And Bebo (I hasten to add I am never going to have a MySpace account or contribute even a (whatever-the-smallest-unit-of-attention-is) to a Rupert Murdoch-owned property) has kindly given me a place to upload all my old musical meanderings. (It's time to stop pretending music comes from "bands" and people anointed by some military-dionysian complex, and recognise that heretoforthwith it's nothing but part of that glorious woven matrix known as "people messing about")

Meanwhile, I am so out of supply-chain management for the next few weeks, and so into trying to get the Wittgenstein Symposium to think seriously about right-wing flying-saucer conspiracies ... but really what I'll be ranting about if I come round your house is spimes and a daemonology where getting anything done (and I mean any-"thing") requires the blessing or patronage of the great lords Google and Yahoo and SkyPal. And where all the world is written in magic books, only by those who understand the arcane APIs of supplication.

I guess that's not so out of supply-chain management at all ... spimes get created as and where needed, except when they are mere imminences, addresses encoded into an Arphid that link to a design on some server. Are you really going to track their flickering trajectories in the cloud-chamber of psycho-history with good old-fashioned ERP? I think not, it's the great search engines and social networks that are going to reach out and embrace them : your shopping is coming by RSS ... if you say your prayers right and have been a good boy or girl.

And where the fuck is GeekWeaver? Not ready ... :-(

Talented Us Watch ...

Meanwhile Gisel's new site almost ready, and she's getting into video editing and YouTube too.

Here's something she made with Laura at the Funarte exhibition last year. The exhibition featured 4 kilometers of plastic cord wrapped around trees in some light woodland.

The opening night had a dance choreographed and performed by Laura and directed by Gisel. I did the music. Gisel's now taken and remixed some of the footage (and the music) to make short videos.

Here's the first ...

Trivia fact : over the following month, all the plastic cord was stolen.
