Monday 21:50 · @vambenepe Studying baseball’s deep lore brings great spiritual rewards. Also, it’s played on DIRT. [Original, responding to @vambenepe.]

Tuesday 07:10 · @ftrain and an antepenultimate [Original, responding to @ftrain.]

Tuesday 15:16 · @McNutt @dwarfland If I were starting now I'd probably go with one of the little Fuji X's or Sony RX. Case for SLR weakening. [Original, responding to @McNutt.]

Tuesday 15:17 · @reiver Glad to meet you [Original, responding to @reiver.]

Tuesday 23:01 · Severe, extreme cruelty: dashes.com/anil/2012/10/apple-special-event-liveblog.html [Original.]

Wednesday 17:23 · Found a real authentic spot to watch some of the Series. via.me/-6bkcna6 [Original.]

Thursday 09:48 · Here’s the weird thing about this identity gig: There’s no enemy. www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/201x/2012/10/25/On-Lacking-Enemies [Original.]

Thursday 10:12 · Hey @nelson, Msft is being perfectly reasonable around identity stuff, these days. [Original.]

Thursday 13:59 · @dierken Anonymity is a choice not to express identity. Pseudonymity is a per-IDP choice. Privacy is orthogonal to all that, right? [Original, responding to @dierken.]

Thursday 17:43 · SFO hates the Internet. [Original.]

Thursday 18:22 · @dierken Anonymity as “the norm”? Hm, that feels weird to me. Agreed that it should always be available. [Original, responding to @dierken.]

Saturday 10:00 · It’s deeply weird that a country as big & complex as the US should be divided politically so evenly. Can't possibly be just an accident. [Original.]

Saturday 14:50 · Trans-Canada washed out at Wawa, will be closed for days. Anyone who's driven cross Canada knows Wawa: www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/2012/10/27/wawa-rain-evacuation-highway-damage.html?cmp=rss [Original.]

Saturday 15:38 · Think my piece on Cloud Atlas (book) was unfair; now remember the ambition not the stumbles. Seeing movie tomorrow. www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/201x/2012/09/15/Cloud-Atlas [Original.]

Saturday 17:02 · @ggreenwald Canadian politics aren't perfect, but we have 5-week elections. Pretty sure that's right way to do it. [Original, responding to @ggreenwald.]

Sunday 00:56 · @codinghorror Java [Original, responding to @codinghorror.]

Sunday 13:30 · Calling Obama a foreign-born atheist commie, well whatever. But dissing Nate Silver… that’s serious. [Original.]

Sunday 14:20 · People at MIT have way too much time on their hands. But they got Noam Chomsky to appear in their Gangnam Style video. www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=lJtHNEDnrnY [Original.]
