    @johngordon I wouldn’t be getting one until winter at the earliest so there’s no rush for me. As you said used is a good idea - and then I can be selective.

      @arstechnica Am looking to eventually replace my ’12 iMac next year. Skylake is looking interesting with TB3 I must admit.

          @johngordon Wow - looking at bikes. They sure have gotten a lot more expensive. Lots of sales this time of year. Will probably get better come winter.

            @johngordon Huh. Used is a really good idea. Hadn’t thought of that. Notice a new Hecker is less than I got mine for back in the day.

              @johngordon Yeah not a lot of jumping. Would be nice to be good for mountain trails or desert.

                @johngordon I do like full suspension for the mountains here. I paid $2500 way back in ’95 for my current bike. (Reward for my first real job, and I got a killer price for the Santa Cruz Heckler) It’s just really heavy as it’s primarily a downhill racer.

                    @johngordon Thinking of making a new bike the reward for some business goals I’m making. What’s a good solid mountain bike that won’t break the bank? i.e. can justify to my wife.

                      @thedoctor It’s very similar to early days of Yosemite or Mavericks. Especially with Gmail. With updates to several of the betas I’ve had to delete accounts and reinstall them. Fortunately this time my rules didn’t need redone.

                        @jws @oluseyi I think the Constitution in the US strongly incentivizes consensus building in groups so that does probably make it easy to assume consensus = normative.
                        clarkgoble
                          @oluseyi to a certain extent, but more in terms of what’s important and what are the community values. How to achieve goals and implications of values ought be more open for discussion. But instead it’s more like a sport game.

                            Surprised how solid El Cap beta is *except* for Mail which is really buggy still.,

                              @oluseyi Didn’t retweet it but someone replied that they thought 90% of everything people agreed upon and the rest of politics is identity politics. It’s probably true, sadly. I just hate identity politics and keep being disappointed.

                                @oluseyi To me analogy is Star Wars V & IV with new one this year akin to Kill Bill part 3. But you’re right, I need rewatch it before I can defend that. It’s just been too long since I saw it last.

                                    Love things like this. Shows that emotional identity politics hardly just an issue of GOP → @politicalmath Want to get Democrats to oppose liberal ideas? Attribute them to Trump http://t.co/whiRaDVv4M

                                      @johngordon I don't think most GOP care. Don't recall who McKinley faction was back in 80s when compromise was made (Denali is the park and McKinley the mountain) Think it was Ohio reps. Alaskians prefer Denali.

                                        @johngordon even more Rawlsian or utilitarian feminist critiques note how sex work structures society and societal views of women creating expectations of power or role. In that really not unlike natural law arguments by conservatives.
                                        clarkgoble
                                          @johngordon again it's not necessarily religious. If you look at many feminist critiques most aren't utilitarian or even Rawls styled Kantian ethics. Usually seen in terms of removal from ideal states.
