#IBM blogpost tomorrow brings concept of "Turing Machine" into the discussion of multichannel CRM experience. Look for it.
Saw "Young Adult" on DVD. Charlize Theron, Patton Oswalt, & Patrick Wilson all put in great performances. Written by Diablo Cody ("Juno").
Surprised they didn't shut down Patent Office when sliced bread invented. Milestone o technological achievement that's never been surpassed

On the so-called "App Internet," my fave app remains this thing called a "browser."
Schumpeterian creative destruction is cool, unless you creatively destroy my livelihood.

20 years ago it was "designer" this & "designer" that. Now it's "artisanal" this & "artisanal" that.
I've never heard of anybody scheduling a 3-week laryngitis. Or claiming that doesn't point to a deeper health problem.
Rousing rounds of Rummikub & Triominoes with Egidia, Sonya, & Dylan at home. I lost them all. I suck.
And I'll shave my head, grow odd facial hair, and don a beret.
@IBMbigdata Thanks. We bust myths, but don't have as much geeky fun doing it as the Discovery Channel people.
Father John Misty--aka Joshua Tillman--has produced an exceptionally bright, inventive country LP. Shades of Lyle Lovett.
Love my cargo pants. Plenty of front-of-leg pockets. Can sit & not have my wallet & keys gouge my ass.

Ah summer! When more than half the emails in your inbox are people's on-vacation out-of-office messages.
"A Canopy of Man-Made Solar-Powered Supertrees Flourishes in Singapore" (http://bit.ly/MphmxA) JK--Beautiful, functional, sustainable, green
@rickasaurus Predicting orbit of what?
Estimating the volume of data in the whole wide world is a bit like as estimating the mass of the Sun. Interesting useless stat.
@0_h_r_1 How's life on the other side of what? I'm still in the same space as before. Different vantage.
As we digitize the genome, will we start referring to DNA as "primordial metadata"?
"Return o hardware era, or learning from Apple" (http://cnet.co/L0913j) JK--Short-term, profit-thin. Long-term, platform 4 hi-mrgn sw & svcs

"To SQL or to NoSQL: the database dilemma" (http://bit.ly/MdM5iu) JK--Not either/or. Real dilemma is "which QL(s)?" to use: SQL, HiveQL, etc
WSJ article about those disgusting fish flies sticking to everything in the Gross Pointes & St Clair Shores. Glad we moved to the west side
Funny that Starbucks has store locator on their website. How can you NOT LOCATE a Starbucks? Look to your left, your right, in front, behind
Have bought & downloaded Father John Misty's LP "Fear Fun." Totally digging it.
Twitter down this morning between 9:30 & 11? Coulda fooled me. I tweeted successfully a dozen times during that period
LET'S ALL TWEET ONLY IN UPPERCASE FOR A DAY & SEE IF SOCIAL SENTIMENT SPIKES ANGRY. ALLCAPS IS THE HOLLERING TENSE!!!!!
Gamification. Let's add 2 consonants to call out what it truly is: gamblification.
Online influence. I prefer 2 think o it as "impression," in "page impression" sense. Doesnt mean U're impressing anybody, in "suasion" sense

How many tiers are optimal 4

"Forrester CEO: Facebook is toast " (http://bit.ly/Nn23IB) JK--Really? Perhaps hook up w/Jamcracker. Yum! Cites mobile app deficiencies
Tech press should tag stories for "page-impression-intensive-sequential-load-time-wasting" factor. Please give me one page with all content
Everybody's imagining that PC market will just up & die. Like they've been prophesying death of the mainframe for as long as I can remember
"Turing Machine brought to life with Lego" (http://bit.ly/PzSZzP) JK--Actually, Turing envisioned machine made of chopsticks & Lincoln Logs
RIP Andrew Sarris. His "auteur theory," investing film "authorship" in director, spawned many a dorm-room debate re Kubrick, Scorsese, etc
Tendency in IT press to call something "NoSQL" DBMS when they're almost always referring to key-value store. Then just say "key-value store"
I'm a-gonna run my Windows XP desktop till it don't run no more. A good robust time-proven piece of engineering is a thing to venerate.
Any spammer who requests your "urgent help" is urgently in need of a brain. Email is what people check last now.
High today will be 100. I will lie low. Subterranean. In my basement office. The coolest place in the house in summer. Needs no A/C.
Remember the original Microsoft Surface prototype form factor in 2008? Table with touchscreen reminded of ancient Ms Pac-Man barroom games.
Good night chillin @ home w/visiting friends Eddy & Sylvia. If I'd known they now reside in San Jose, I'd've chilled @ their place last week

First day of summer. Heat and humidity make it just another in a multi-month period of drowsy restless slumber.
"Should Twitter have built-in correction button?" (http://bit.ly/LBgIxL) JK--Self-correcting, I delete tweet & crosspost in FB, then retweet
You don't like
#BigData as a buzzword? You propose going back to "VLDB"? See how that flies in marketing literature. @MCanalytics No problem. Thanks for promoting my work. @MCanalytics That one's 9 months old. And my name is misspelled in the landing page.
Email tech newsletters I've been receiving for more than a decade, on techs that are no longer in my main radar screen. Keep or unsubscribe?

You hear of people doing everything else in boot camp than learn how to make boots. Why is that? Is this actually German "Das Boot" kamp?
Anytime anybody on socials addresses me as "yo," I assume it's spam. Unless it's Spanish and they're talking about themselves. Narcissist!
Testing HootSuite...this is just a test.
@baratunde for one of the best Twitter profile lines anywhere: "My tweets represent your employer's opinion."
LIke many an aging dog, I pride myself now on my ability to learn new tricks.
The Android app for IBM Lotus Notes is really good. Better than the Windows client, usability-wise.

CNN Zakaria doing piece on "Dictators 2.0." New standard is all citizens required to "like" every FB status update issued by Head Honcho.

@EventCloudPro: I spend Father's Day w/Unicorns in cloud, monetize w/RTB, log w/NoSQL, analyze w/Hadoop, visualize w/HTML5, & react w/CEP
