The week's twitterings – 2011-02-06

  • I'm really fed up with the new @skype UI on the Mac. Lots of gratuitous white space and flashy coverflow, but no compact view. Frustrating. #
  • “@aaronpaxson: It astounds me that scientists don't believe in God. Who else can make things so perfect and "in balance"?” <Gotta be a troll #
  • “@stevel: @geoffarnold” < Helps a bit, but still terribly wasteful of screen real estate. #
  • “@GeorgeReese: I don't believe in string theory.” <Of course, the universe is indifferent to your opinion. #
  • “@craigmorgan: @geoffarnold @stevel front it with Adium" < But I mostly use Skype for video chat 🙁 #
  • “@adrianco: @GeorgeReese @geoffarnold E8 theory is more elegant than string theory” < Surely the E8 *model* – lots to do to make it a theory #
  • Great piece by Julia Galef on the epistemological status of "intuition". #
  • Hitchens is devastating on why The King's Speech is a gross falsification via @guardian. Loved the film, but he's right. #
  • Today is a day for weak tea, dry toast, and sleep. #delhibelly #
  • Corvid savants: – check out the video clips! Crows (and rooks, and ravens) rule! #
  • Catholic priest/exorcist: "We have a rite that’s recognized, even by the demons, as legitimate." Lawful evil demons? #
  • Somehow I wound up pulling an all-nighter last night. This can't end well. (Though today ends with me getting on a plane, so….) #
  • 11:25PM – time to check out and head to the airport for my BLR-FRA-SFO flights home. (How come I only ever see Indian airports at 2-3AM?) #
  • And here I am, back at the Tower Lounge at Frankfurt. I have a 3+ hour layover, then I'm heading home to SFO. #
  • My Yahoo-supplied 15" MBP is gorgeous & fast, but just too big and heavy for a road warrior. Switch to 13"?
    Or is a new MBA in my future? #
  • Back home: I just watched Wolves beat ManUtd. Not what I expected. Good match, though. #
