    @yasmine Eagerly awaiting your appraisal. I recommend watching the entire first season to see just how daring the show can be :-)

      Co-worker introduced me to Wrapido [wrapidony.com] today. I may have found my regular office lunch spot! :-)

        @aaandy I’m more of a buro man, myself… unless we’re talking chicken waffle tacos. Nothing beats chicken waffle tacos with honey and hot sauce (or hot honey)! :-P @duerig @0xmf

          @duerig Further, Internet companies created this devaluation with their rush toward free in a bid to build audience. THEY decided that their services were not sufficiently compelling to motivate consumers to pay up front. @0xmf @aaandy

            @duerig It’s not a crazy bias, it’s a historical bias. It’s also entirely beside the point: Internet companies know that this bias exists when they decide to enter the marketplace, and thus design their strategies accordingly. @0xmf @aaandy

              @antijingoist Do you prefer feedback publicly or privately?

                @0xmf Thus the “+3, Funny” :-) A really good joke gets funnier the more you think about it. This one doesn’t, because the behavior he’s mocking, while superficially absurd, is actually perfectly rational. @aaandy

                  @billkunz At least you’re safe! A tire blowout on the freeway is no joke. Get home—and to a restroom—soon! :-/

                    @aaandy Score: +3, Funny (Not insightful, though. Consumers intrinsically devalue software and value hardware. Internet companies know this, thus ads and personal data mining.) @0xmf

                      @0xmf It gave me Big Bang Theory vibes, given Sheldon’s preoccupation with regularity :-P

                        Amazon #FireTV screensaver images are gorgeous! And I prefer the subtle “Ken Burns” effect to the 3D transformed tiles the Apple TV defaults to. Mildly warm to touch after watching second half of Gina Carano’s “In the Blood”

                            Core 77 conference. Want to go. $450, though? Tough pill.

                              @poweruser That’s a great point. One could even argue that the ultimate function of government in a market economy is to vouchsafe cardinal reputations, whereupon proxy recommendations and trusts enable the network. Social trust is a HUGE issue.

                                @chriskrycho Various forms of social welfare pretty much pursue the same utopian ideal, no? Why must it be a function of charity or largesse, rather than a structural intrinsic of the system? @akulbe
                                oluseyi
                                  @akulbe Precisely. What truly differentiates the professional is the cultivation of reputation, and responsible behavior to protect it. @chriskrycho

                                    @mps Huh. I’ll keep an eye on that. They say NOT to keep it in an overly enclosed space, so it might just be an airflow issue.

                                      I bought a Fire TV. Aside from a glitchy update screen that may erroneously report failure to download software updates, while they’re actually progressing in the background, we’re off to a good start.
