Twitter Weekly Updates for 2011-02-01

  • Mubarak: "We'll cont'n political, econ'ical & social reforms 4 a free & demo'tic Egyp'n society." http://bit.ly/gYPLjV //U Had your chance #
  • RT @daveanthony: What Egypt needs right now is a tax break for the wealthy, which would create jobs. //via @digital_boy #
  • Wonder what the chances are of getting COMCAST to add Al Jazeera? Their brass probably thinks AJ is Al Quieda. I know many right wingers do #
  • @dsearls: "cable mostly shit-InAPipe, sphinctered thru“setTop boxes” (ie.crippledComputers maxing control by cableCo& minimiz'g choice 4 us" #
  • @dsearls so effectively articulates what I also feel about cable, and news http://bit.ly/hVZuKN and how cable cos fail us big time #
  • @bsabath hey, he appears onTwitter! #
  • @dangillmor yeah, I watched all those. Thought I heard you saying there was a difference in what ran on air and what was in Parts 1 and 2 #
  • @dangillmor so you're talking about the online "part 1" and "part 2" ; that what is in those is different still, from what ran on air? #
  • maybe this is the actual Assange interviwew? http://bit.ly/eVTiNL Yes! It is on cbsnews site #
  • Ok. not the actual interview…but an interesting "behind the scenes" about the inteview #
  • wow…some or much of Assange interview is already up at http://bit.ly/ecoFt1 (CBS News Site) #
  • arghh! Just realized I forgot to watch Assange on 60 minutes (saw @davewiner and @dangillmor tweeting about it. Hope it's online soon. #
  • @FWGMills well, then why even try? It's all we have. More choice= good, & their coverage=stellar this wk. We need insight N2 Muslim world #
  • @FWGMills again, 2 my point. AJ is IN the MidEast, so where else would they be delivered? You're still blaming them for passing it on. #
  • @FWGMills I actually don't buy the Fox=MSNBC or Fox vs any honest effort to report (ALL have POV, regardless what they claim otherwise) #
  • @FWGMills so if: "Could argue same for FoxNews and MSNBC too.", then why not AJ? Just another news/fakenews/propaganda offering, right? #
  • @FWGMills That was your argument vs AJ. Canada has it on their cable systems. They have a big "Muslim" population? NO, people want news #
  • @FWGMills you made the connection btw Osama andAJ, not me. Point was whether publicizing the note constitutes complicity. No, it doesn't. #
  • i hate it when I accidentally tweet what I meant as a search #
  • @FWGMills If a kidnapper drops a ransom note to the police, does make the police a part of the plot? AJ is NOT radical/fundy Muslim #
  • aha….just discovered that my Netbook (also on win7) shows bad msg re: missing plugin: says Flash missing, when it is really Real Player #
  • Once I ran Firefox re-install of Flash (it installed PLUGIN as opposed to Active-X player) , Firefox works too. #flash #realplayer #
  • seems it was Real Player….not on my win7 laptop. Didn't notice that it was RP plugin it was asking for. Firefox asked me again, though #
  • Driving me crazy. I can still watch by clicking X when it asks me to install Flash add-on, and it plays anyway. I want to find culprit #
  • Vista desktop machine doesn't ask for Flash when I open aljazeera english stream page. My laptop has weird conflict, but only on aljazeera #
  • Uninstalled Flash completely on Win7 laptop. Reopened Aljazeera english live stream page. Clicked to allow it 2 install flash. Still asks #
  • My Vista system does not do this. Win 7 system has some glitch w/ all 3 browsers on aljazeera but not other sites with Flash #
  • My Win7 system has weird conflict re: Flash whenI go to aljazeera live stream page. Keeps asking me to install Flash, press X and it plays #
  • Nobody is saying Twitter CAUSED the revolution; it is helping to communicate the causes and cover the struggle #
  • Oh come on…."People are not protesting b/c of Twitter, they're actually tired of real conditions"…No, Twitter etc. are a channel #
  • @cgerrish Yes. WINDOW. Funny #
  • @cgerrish oh…LOL…. #
  • @cgerrish Oh, I'm there on the net. An "Al Jazeera widow" on http://bit.ly/htj7gw is perpetually sitting on my desktop. #
  • @cgerrish Perhaps, unless Comcast clamps down on access to such things. I'd prefer myself to have it both places #
  • AlJazeera report points out contrast in pictures from Egypt State TV and Al Jazeera (latter shows calm) http://yfrog.com/gyornjjj #
  • @razsc I speak as one who nevertheless tries to do this mutli-tasking, multi-prescence social balance. Not sure I do very well. #
  • @razsc It would be interesting to see how good we really are at "multitasking"; there is a limit somewhere before we really do lose touch #
  • @razsc I suspect that there are many instances where it does shallow, or detract from social interactions w/ the physical group #
  • Al Jazeera site Live Stream page asks me to install Flash add-on. But I think I'll cut them some slack. They're probably kinda busy now. #
  • Seth myers on SNL Weekend update: " I have to say, so far the Comcast takeover is going very well. I actually do HAVE to say that." #
  • RT @davewiner: It’s Not Twitter or Facebook, It’s the Power of the Network. Can I get an Amen! http://r2.ly/843n // Yes! Amen. #
  • RT FB Robert Alfonso: "The Al Jazeera str'm is so good: news by adults, for adults. What a contrast with Am'can bobble-head sensationalism." #
  • Doing another live broadcast on @Ustream! Come join me http://ustre.am/aH85 ! #
  • downloaded Al Jazeera English iPhone app…connecting now…..connected! Awesome #
  • it seems Aljazeera leads the world in immediate coverage….shameful lag in US coverage…anybody got any webcasting gear? Why not? Crazy #
  • @sturkle you have a speaking itineary for coming weeks? Want to find closest place where I might have a brief conversation #
  • watching Twitter search: sturkle, seeing arguments about human vs/and technology and Social Networks. Wake up church. We need to have this #
  • I feel like I'm in a college course where @sturkle 's book is text, reading a chapter a week & pausing 2 talk about it via SocialNetworks #
  • Lanier in this video http://youtu.be/T5JZFx6rIlY not saying same as @Sturkle , but ideas similar in certain ways from different directions #
  • @sturkle This: Jaron Lanier – You Are Not A Gadget at http://youtu.be/T5JZFx6rIlY by Jaron Lanier seems very relevant (via RT @cgerrish) #
  • Clay Shirky, author of "Here Comes Everybody" and "Cognitive Surplus" , tweets at @cshirky #
  • Howard Rheingold at @hrheingold for interesting , helpful posts and links to various smartmobs related resources and news #
  • If you haven't already, check out smartmobs.com devoted to the topic of Howard Rhingold's 2002 book Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution #
  • Could Egypt be having a “Flash Mob Revolution” Smart Mobs and the Power of the Mobile ManyTechnologies of Cooperation http://bit.ly/gTdTzo #
  • Reposting SmartMobs.com article from June 2009 from Iran http://bit.ly/f3HzR6 #
  • Twitter.com link to see tweets today and Egypt http://bit.ly/dHvFrj #
  • I think those who diss ideaof Social Media & smartmobs role in all this don't understand how smart mobs can work #
  • @TerryHeaton who was it? Hope I can see it somewhere eventually #
  • anybody else having the english aljazeera site keep asking to install flash plugin every time you visit, even tho you already have? #
  • State media says Egyptian armed forces ordered onto the streets (reported live at aljazeera http://bit.ly/htj7gw) #
  • Still on the air in Egypt at http://bit.ly/htj7gw on aljazeera english #
  • They're doing it right now….cameras still on ad reporter is talking about police in the building #
  • aljazeer english telling us that police are knocking on their door , perhaps to stop them from broadcasting http://bit.ly/htj7gw #
  • I'm connecting several feeds into a live broadcast on @Ustream! Come join me http://ustre.am/aH85 ! #
  • CNN link I just tweeted is showing State TV in Egypt #
  • CNN Live stream covering Egypt http://bit.ly/i2wMVv #

  • Prev tweet from stats revealed in TPM article at http://bit.ly/hBZNUf #
  • An ABC/WaPo poll : Americans wanted2 see Obama take the lead (over GOP) by a 44% to 35% split. So much 4 GOP "the American people want" #

  • @shelisrael: "Retailers harvesting FB fans w/ discounts &coupons= old mktg in a new venue, not "social commerce" via http://bit.ly/hsIEkb #
  • Usually laughed at these whenthey ran on SNL: http://bit.ly/i7kAT4 (Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey) It needs a twitter feed! Not even RSS! #
  • RT @JPBarlow: RT @Salon CPAC's anti-Muslim film festival http://j.mp/i4jaej [Amazing trailers!] //CPAC: Conservative Political A-Holes Conf #
  • @sturkle Alone Together is starting to inspire a Webcast documentary to talk to people about issues you raise in part 2. #
  • And my friend ain't no Luddite either. #
  • Talking to a friend via phone today, he expressed to me an almost perfect agreement with a lot of what Turkle's Alone Together identifies #
  • Clarification about Social Graph: Church needs to put as much thought and paln into it as Facebook itself did and does; That radical enough? #
  • @shelisrael or how the sum total of their activity on Social Media is to point back to "unsocial" old forms of media #
  • @shelisrael I like how media orgs talk about "Social Media" while their own "media output" remains invisible to actual social media activity #
  • @shelisrael exactly! LOL 🙂 #
  • @shelisrael they're hitchin' a ride on the bandwagon of "coolness" #
  • Still wondering where the real database geeks are Nthe church. We ought to be talking "Social Graph" type stuff! Where are you SQL people? #
  • GOP is insanely blind about deficit as long as they continue to ignore the colossal wasteful spending on military #
  • Of course, you're being a comic, but I'd rather see jokes about the stupidity and waste we have now from our unwillingness to innovate #
  • Oh, sorry Jon, but U underestimate importance of investing N building more efficiency into our infrastructure..HS rail reduces oil depen'cy #
  • It is SO needed in Nashville 4 us 2 have means of getting downtown that don't require the waste of time and gas to sit in rush hour traffic #
  • Obama's SOTU "high speed railways" IDs a huge mistake USA made (Reagan admin took our eyes off the ball) in helping our big city tran'sp'tn #
  • Also, digital version of book gives ability to start reading right away, like their streaming copy free with the DVD ir Blu-Ray #
  • What I'd like to see is for Amazon to provide an incentive to own the digital book when you buy the print version , to help with reviewing #
  • Clay Shirky (@cshirky) talks2 Robert Scoble (@scobleizer) about online discussion & moderation (http://www.cinchcast.com/scobleizer/161403) #
  • Oh, the Mashable article on Facebook/Netflix http://on.mash.to/hXEfU9 I "like" it #
  • I was just reading the Mashable article about Netflix and Facebook integration, so that reminded me of the refridgerator line in prev tweet #
  • LOL recalling @stevegillmor , when someone said "It's cool, it has Netflix", replied "So what , I have Netflix on my refridgerator" #
  • @dannysullivan and @mitchwagner were onalong with Leo and Gina…have to check it out whenit comes out on VidPodcast tomorrow or so #
  • Arghhhhh! Just realized that it's way past 3 o'clock and I missed just about all of This week in Google on Twit.tv #
  • @KeithOlbermann oooh, pretty #
  • RT @timoreilly: Ouch. Word clouds of what Obama said vs. what America heard: http://bit.ly/dH98PM #sotu // Great article/graphical story #
  • Not a perfect analogy (I've already noticed) but it "sorta works" #
  • I'm a Facebook fan much like I'm an American citizen: I like what it's trying to do and how it's constructed; things I don't , I dissent #
  • Here's a HuffPost article by @jeffjarvis that articulates a lot of my frustation w/Sorkin's "The Social Network" http://huff.to/dWKNqM #
  • "Best Movie" talk & last night's SOTU combined 2 bring 2 mind my frustration with Sorkin's The Social Network; DID enjoy it at other levels #
  • On second thought, nothing is much worse than hearing a GOP rebuttal of the SOTU; especially this present crop #
  • I would like2 see a good movie on what really made Facebook – the App – tick; what inspired it, drove it; I doubt it was "getting laid" #
  • He's a great writer(eg. West Wing) but wasn't ideal guy 2 tell the story of the vision of Facebook…I know he wasn't doing that, but still #
  • Is having Aaron Sorkin be the scrreenwriter for The Social Network kind of like hearing a GOP rebuttal of the SOTU? #
  • Somebody has undoubtedly already come up with that, but it just "popped in there" like the Stay Puffed Marshmellow man #
  • When a "shit storm" happens on Twitter, is it called a TwitShit? #
  • The West Wing character tweeters is kind of a strange phenomenon…but often funny, like the Bartlett RT I just put out there #
  • @tweetdeck only shows original and me…I want to give MY source credit too…. #
  • what's the proper way to RT another RT…I want to show who I got it from as well as who the original was, leaving out those in between. #
  • Pope & Sherry Turkle (@sturkle in "Alone Together" ) share the same message about Social Networking http://reut.rs/hfJTKF #wiredchurch #
  • @gavoweb Yours is one of those good authentic voices that we DO have…thanks for all you do #
  • so many things in @tweetdeck are broken…hashtag search just gave me 1 hit and then error….twitter.com showed me 6 from last 5 days #
  • "Cluetrain", in case you didn't know, hearkens to the 1999 book The Cluetrain Manifesto (re-released in 2009 10th anniv. edition) #
  • The church in general needs a "Cluetrain" style renaissance so it can be present and put "social" into it's Social Networking #wiredchurch #
  • So depressing that Ecunet converstions in 90's about online community have virtually disappeared (pun intended for "virtual") #wiredchuch #
  • what good R SOTU rebuttals, anyway, since they all 2 often are anything BUT rebuttals? obviously oblivious to what the address actually said #
  • Most of that work & research was done on and via and about Ecunet, which used to be a great , lively place for theological convo re: online #
  • Re prev update: That was in 1997-98. Could have done it from Nashville fairly easily, with 1-2 trips to Dayton. #
  • If I had it to do over again, I would've finished up my DMIn project at United Theological Sem. in Dayton re: online community #wiredchurch #
  • It was fun live tweeting #SOTU last night, and reading others who were too…things like that are also a good way to discover new people #
  • 15 yrs later, online, we're beginning 2 see, unintended side-effects (like global warm'g) from mass-adoption& habits #wiredchurch #
  • In the mid-90's, I was exploring how online communities can be enhancements/extensions for church, and how it frees up certain things #
  • The absence of social cues online that free us 2express ourselves more easily also keep us from seeing cues w/ tell us we're being Ahole #
  • I wish @sturkle devoted more to possibilities 4 positives, given her cautionary studies in pt 2. Robotic studies not quite as relevant yet #
  • Would love to find theological versions of @sturkle 's Alone Together -type studies, but w/ a bit more on how we can improve online habits #
  • interesting: Word Cloud of Obama's speech: http://bit.ly/dLOfcE Will retweet original tweeter when I find it again #
  • Local channel 5 SOTU poll quite a contrast 2 the 92% approval national; 55 approval. So much of Tennessee so GOP propaganda vulerable #
  • Local news anchor says "President wants to spend billions"….uh, yeah, it does cost SOMETHING to run a country. It's called a budget. #
  • Mr. Rendell, the Repubs will go ahead with their anticipated reactions, regardless of what Obama said #
  • how many jobs were created over the entire past 10 years, under those crfucial Bush tax cuts? Shut UP! #
  • OMG….please …..Republican talking points…..Health Care bill does not COST jobs, nor increase the debt….you're a "budget guy?" #
  • Why is "the greatest nation on earth" better than "the best we can be" or "being who we were meant to be"? #sotu #
  • oh boy…more greatest nation on earth stuff #
  • Cannot afford permanent extension of tax cuts to the richest 2% of Americans (Boehner big sigh) #sotu #
  • how about high speed internet on high speed rail 🙂 #
  • Boehner didn't clap for high speed rail, either #
  • Boehner didn't look pleased about mention of removing tax breaks for oil companies #
  • msnbc could do much better re: their video quality on the online recordings of their shows. Daily Show and Twit Network make u look bad #
  • Oh yeah, Amy Holmes is on CNN…the False Equivalenices Network; the "Leave it There" Channel. I'm so tired of hearing her. #
  • OMG, Amy Holmes is the queen of false equivalencies….she never will answer the questions, but simply tries to be some "big balancer" #
  • RT @FOKNewsChannel: Greetings! FOKNewsChannel is on the air. Well, on Twitter. // Now what does #FOK stand for again? #
  • @OsborneInk Comcast chair a few months ago when asked about KO: "We'll see when we have real ammo" – or something to that effect #
  • @OsborneInk Want2see something that actually says she believes Comcast didn't influence MSNBC in any way. Comcast chair quotes = suspicious #
  • @OsborneInk "Clearly? Really? Where? She refers to THAT decision, referring to the one between KO and MSNBC, right? Sorry, dont see it #
  • @OsborneInk do YOU think that's what she did? Squash it? I'm not sure after seeing his quote #
  • That article has a great chance of being a complete misrepresentation of what Rachel actually said and DIDNT say #
  • If prev tweet (RT) is accurate, I'll be inclined to take Rachel's word for it..must read it now #
