instant friends at a glance

I have 130 instant friends, including double & triple dippers.

  • 56 are people I have met in person;
  • 1 is a chameleon that I have met in person;
  • 1 is invisible;
  • 5 people abstained from voting;
  • 10 people out there in cyberspace did not want to be my friend
    • 2 are people that I know who seem to have changed their minds about being my 'instant friend'
    • 1 is a person I haven't met who apparently changed her mind about being my friend after reading the comments left by existing stock of 'instant friends'

I have received 3 party invitations, (1 2 3), have attended 1, and was busted for not updating this information sooner.

Dear blog-O-rama,

We're in Iraq because of September 11. Saddam and Bin Laden are the same person. Iraq and Al Qaeda are the same place. When we kill Iraqis we are getting back for all the lives lost to terrorism in this country. Everybody knows this. Why don't you support our troops? Didn't you have a tv in 2001?

Signed,

Most People Out There

(love, sending you metta)

OK, so I read this article on FARK.COM, it mentioned the source of "bad money drives out good". Apparently a common phrase among economic geocachers. Word etomology and other semi related stuff in the article. Just a coincidence.

I really like your house on the rock pictures. It's one of my favorite places. It inspires me to let my own imagination go wild. Hopefully someday I'll let that happen.

Do you have any other photos from hotr? I'm hoping to get there again this year soon. But when I'm there, I find it hard to take pictures. My brain is usually overloaded with the consuming insanity that made Alex Jordan tick.

Have a good day.

Scott.

hello. i took the humor quiz and answered correctly. but i have a lot of experience with multiple choice tests so of course i answered correctly. once i got in the upper 1% of the NY state regents exam for algebra despite the fact that i got a C in algebra just because i know how to take these tests. this feat took place a year before i met you. maybe it was just a few months--i took it in June, when i was still 13. i probably would have answered your quiz correctly then too.

I stumbled on to this site through an interesting coincidence... on one of your blogs you have a poll where your friends choose their favorite element, and a guy named Matt picked Thulium. Well, there really is a band called Thulium, [though they've changed their name] and Matt is the lead singer's name. Thought I would share.

This is just a literary reference: check out If On a Winter's Night a Traveller, by Italo Calvino. Written in 1979 (I think), it contains a description of a computer program that does away with the need actually to read a book, by making a prioritized list of words that occur most frequently. There's also a lot about producing (or combatting) apocrypha and false copies of books.

Jack Kerouac is the color of tar. A dark, shiny, sheen like some greaser's haircut. The sticky texture that makes you dream of molasses licked out of a jar. The smell of Satan's aphrodisiac, dark, musky and sickening.

Tar is the answer. The tar that binds the wounds of cracked highways. The tar that embraces every dancing spark from a cigarette that is thrown from a car. The tar that turns the working man's hands into a furoughed roadmap of America. The tar that gently embraces each footfall, binding me to the road as I walk back to my darling's arms.

Clearly your blog is widely read in the amphibian world: as I arrived home this evening, I discovered a newt sitting on my door step. I assume (s)he is a consumer of newt porn!

After much research (and some flash photography), I discovered that it was in fact an arboreal salamander, and therefore relatively uninterested in the images I had on offer. This was somewhat of a relief as we'd been unable to negotiate a common currency. (you don't think I give this stuff away for free, do you?)

Pictures of said arboreal salamander coming soon...

I plan to bring your information to teamdork at our meeting next week. dunno if you are on friendster, but teamdork is! i would like to invite you to join, as our presence on the ultimate coolie site, friendster, solidifies our bisociality and enthusiasm to bring greater awareness to the movement. either way, thanx for your info and know that you have given something tangible to the sometimes shady teamdork. have a good one. teamdork is available for contact at "t e a m d o r k @ l y c o s . c o m". kate - minister of useless information.

Strange but interesting site (no hard opinion actually). By the way, I consider myself multi-social... or maybe a zelig?

Who would denied an instant friendship? (actually that sounds as a "contradictio in adjectio"; well, artificial intelligence to some extent is another contradiction in its own terms and it is alive, isn't it?).

(...excerpts...)

If fighting terror must be your mantra, then the counterpoint is obvious: Not only is the right dangerously incompetent at their own game, but its vindictive, overly politicized and petty exercise of this power proves once and for all that they really don?t give a damn about the Security of the American People they so righteously claim only they can protect

The scary reality is that Democrats seem in insufficient awe of the horror of inheriting the debacle in Iraq, and the concomitant mess around the world. Were it not for the disastrous effects on the poor of the world of a continuing relentless assault?naively assuming beyond all evidence that an alternative to Bush might actually stop this assault?it could even be argued that it just might be preferable to spend the next four years watching these bastards sink in the swamp of their own making, and pulling them out just as they slip under to make sure they survive impeachment, trial, imprisonment etc.

Ann,
I always enjoy your comments on Slashdot, and I do run by here to check your blog occasionally. I think it's a shame that no one has invited you to a party yet, so if you happen to be in Central Florida this weekend, you are cordially invited to come party with my friends Expanse (www.expanseonline.com) at Coral Bay. I realize that it's a long way from Wisconsin, but I thought that extending a party invite was the instantly-friendly thing to do. Party on,

Crazy.

ann,

hi, I just wanted to pass on the word about a pretty unique peace-activism site, FacesForPeace.org, where people are posting their photos and antiwar statements in one place, kind of an "online peace rally" (this war may be about over but the conditions for future preemptive, near-unilateral wars are obviously still in place). Hope you can check it out, if you like it please spread the word.

peace,
tim

Dear Miss Bell,

There are some serious problems with Michael Moore's movie "Bowling for Columbine". Beyond the issue of firearms and violence are the issues of Mr. Moore's fast and loose treatment of the chronology of events and the intent of the persons and corporations depicted in the video. Please see;

www.spinsanity.org/columns/20 021119.html

Mr. Moore's movie is not a documentary. It is a disingenuous concatenation of events that did not occur as depicted, and events that did not occur at all.

I do want to be your friend. In order to do this we must agree on a fact based common ground free of propaganda. I regret that Mr Moore's movies do not provide this common ground.

Do you realize that private residental swimming pools kill 10 times more children than do firearms every year in the United States? Let's not speak of abortion which is also the taking of a human life. If child death and injury is your concern then we can further this goal in a significant and constitutional way by banning swimming pools and abortion.

Kindest Regards,
Charles

I've been feeling particularly dumb lately. I'm not sure whether it's the people I hang out with or something in the water (I suspect the latter as I don't hang o ut with anyone greatly different than before). Perhaps it's like poison, and the same people over and over have a cumulative effect that gradually destroys my liver, spleen and mind.

Whatever the cause, I doubt surrounding myself with smarter people is going to make me more dumb in an absolutely sense. Relatively is another matter, but that's ok. It's all a matter of perspective. Sometime soon I may be able to motivate myself to participate in life once more, and you are step one

Please be my friend. I study conservatory Boston, but have no friends in the whole city. I don't talk to anyone outside of class, except a few sentences with my roommates.

My friends from Maryland tell me to just talk to people, but that is ever so hard. What am I to do, walk up to strangers and classmates, and ask, "do you want to be my friend?" I can't. I won't. They'd laugh at me, and then say "no. Go away."

I also tried to join some on-campus clubs online. But it didn't work; it still says I don't belong to any clubs. Well, I want to belong.

I suppose it isn't too bad here. I still have my music, my internet porn, and a pretty girl waiting for me in Maryland. But it sure would be a lot better with a friend.

I'm completely consumed with local agents swamping centralized computation. Your work points to potential solutions. I'd like to know more. My EBay offer: I specialize in information representation systems and (potentially interesting to you) massively distributed systems, and am working on collaborative tools which allow us to more precisely specify our meaning through a transmission mechanism designed to take advantage of the computers in our lives. Google me please, you'll find that I was very active in massively distributed systems in the early '90's, I hid out at Microsoft for the past few years trying to figure out how to actually *build* distributed systems on the scale that Microsoft could deploy almost overnight.

...

Hey Ann Maria, in this age of no postscript shall go unpunished; a Post Script: What are the possible limits of local computation? At what information threshhold must one surrender to what one is told? And does (for example) a 7.2 billion sample computation, with significant clustering and forcing re: religion, party affiliation, just getting enough to eat and who has the guns?, have within it the potential to transcend local events?

My mother loves me more than your mother loves you. For Thanksgiving my mother made Turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots and turnips, butternut squash, green beans, peas, onion casserole, fresh rolls and for desert we had custard pie (boy was this good), pumpkin pie, mince pie, apple pie and cranberry bread. We had so much food we had to give a lot of it away to the wayward souls who came to visit. Too bad you were not here to taste it. Oh well, you have all those nice little presents to sooth those feelings of inferiority.

By the way, your brother John says his new laptop is really really nice.
