You call this modern life a good one? Everything's gotten smaller and puckered up.
You don’t make a bagel by first baking a bialy and then punching out the center. No—you roll out a snake of dough and join the ends together to form the bagel. If you denied that a bagel has a hole, you’d be laughed out of New York City, Montreal, and any self-respecting deli worldwide. I consider this final.
I love my website. Even though it isn’t a physical thing, I think it might be my most prized possession.
It’s a place for me to think and a place for me to link.

We almost had @DavidWolfpaw on the WPAMA a few weeks ago, but had to cancel last minute. But his topic was SO popular, we rescheduled!
Coming your way this Wednesday, David and @allie_nimmons talk all things #IndieWeb!https://t.co/t7y3uuwIZM
This should be fantastic! I can’t wait.
Unless he’s a close childhood friend of Dr. Biden, he’s not even remotely entitled to call her either Jill much less “kiddo”. Much like Bill Cosby and Charlie Rose, who he cites, he should be stripped of his valueless honorary doctorate and his emeritus title at Northwestern.
I was contemplating and wavering on subscribing to the Wall Street Journal for the past month. This garbage makes it a firm no.
It's the most wonderful time of the year--time to sign up for DLINQ's 2021 Digital Detox. The topic of our '21 DD will be Digital Equity and Inclusion in a Pandemic. Join us as we reflect on and explore strategies on this important and timely topic https://t.co/OHS0jYbkug— Anne of Green Mountains (@amcollier) December 11, 2020
We need to debate what kind of hypermedia suit our vision of society - how we create the interactive products and on-line services we want to use, the kind of computers we like and the software we find most useful. We need to find ways to think socially and politically about the machines we develop. While learning from the can-do attitude of the Californian individualists, we also must recognise that the potentiality of hypermedia can never solely be realised through market forces. We need an economy which can unleash the creative powers of hi-tech artisans. Only then can we fully grasp the Promethean opportunities of hypermedia as humanity moves into the next stage of modernity. ❧
Even if I can't say dumb bunny out loud, I cab still think it inside my head. 'Cause heads are silent. Which is what I like about heads. — Junie B.
Augustine [of Hippo] knew the power and the danger of idolatry and celebrity. And he knew the danger of both was first to permit the idolater to offload the duty of thinking onto their idol. And second to seduce the celebrity, in turn, into thinking his fans have nothing insightful to say. That treatment of a fellow human, a fellow christian, would be not the achievement of theology but the avoidance of it. And he went out of his way in his life and in his words to forestall such approaches.

Everybody, every company, ought to have a website: a place they can call their own, a place where your best stuff lives, a place where, when people Google you, they find your site.
I tell every teenager: [...] create a website, get your domain name—preferably your own name—put stuff up there so when people search for you they find your best stuff. It's so important.
And if you're a business it goes double. A business that's not online practically doesn't exist.
Now you may say, "well i have a Facebook page, I have a Twitter account." You need your own spot! Sure you can have your Facebook page and Twitter feed and all that stuff, and it should link to your website, but you gotta have the website.
The Centre for Innovation of Leiden University has always strongly supported social or collaborative learning in online learning: the interaction between learners facilitating learners, whether that is in discussion forums, peer review assignments or in our Facebook groups, contributes to a deeper understanding of subjects, and prepares learners to apply their knowledge.
Therefore we have decided to close all Facebook groups, Whatsapp groups and Instagram accounts currently under control of the Centre for Innovation, per the 29th of March 2019, and have adjusted our courses accordingly.
You can direct any questions or remarks in regards to this policy to MOOC@sea.leidenuniv.nl.

“Frauds are everywhere y’all.”
Any religion that professes to be concerned with the souls of men and is not concerned with the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them, and the social conditions that cripple them, is a spiritually moribund religion in need of new blood. ❧
King may have adopted this passage from Harry Emerson Fosdick’s The Hope of the World [New York: Harper & Brothers, 1933], p. 25:
“Any church that pretends to care for the souls of people but is not interested in the slums that damn them, the city government that corrupts them, the economic order that cripples them . . . that kind of church, I think, would hear again the Master’s withering words: ‘Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!”’
