…the passing of the streetcars is a really sexy sound.
Seth Godin: “If your non-profit isn’t acting with as much energy and guts as it takes to get funded in Silicon Valley or featured on Digg, then you’re failing in your duty to make change.”
This applies, really, not only to non-profits, but any form of public service as well. If you’re not moving forward to meet the needs of your clients, and anticipating what they’ll need next, then you’re not doing enough.
here’s a toast to Alan Turing
born in harsher, darker times
who thought outside the container
and loved outside the lines
and so the code-breaker was broken
and we’re sorry
yes now the s-word has been spoken
the official conscience woken
— very carefully scripted but at least it’s not encrypted —
and the story does suggest
a part 2 to the Turing Test:
1. can machines behave like humans?
2. can we?
