  2. Also, note that the movie showed a time frame in which every computer Jobs developed was a failure. And they had millions of dollars behind them. My Apple ][ was developed on nothing and productized on very little. Yet it was the only revenue and profit source of the company for the first 10 years, well past the point that Jobs had left. The movie made it seem that board members didn’t acknowledge Jobs’ great work on Macintosh but when sales fall to a few hundred a month and the stock dives to 50% in a short time, someone has to save the company. The proper course was to work every angle possible, engineering and marketing, to make the Macintosh marketable while the Apple ][ still supported us for years. This work was done by Sculley and others and it involved opening the Macintosh up too.

    The movie shows Steve’s driving of the Macintosh team but not the stuff that most of the team said they’d never again work for him. It doesn’t show his disdain and attempts to kill the Apple ][, our revenue source, so that the Macintosh wouldn’t have to compete with it. The movie audience would want to see a complete picture and they can often tell when they are being shortchanged.

    And ease of computer came to the world more than anything from Jef Raskin, in many ways and long before Jef told us to look into Xerox. Jef was badly portrayed.

  3. Look, I know it isn’t easy out there for dudes, either. (Isn’t it? I think it actually could be. Easier, anyway. Less horrifying.) For some reason it seems like standard operating procedure, among those with opposite-sex interests, that GUYS message GIRLS and that is that. I think this is on the way out, but it’s lingering. So guys have some pressure—they’re the ones who have to “make a move” and then just wait while my friends and I gasp and laugh and email each other the complete garbage they’ve just sent us.

    Does the internet allow us to rewrite social scripts, or does it merely amplify existing ones? 

    I like talking about myself as much as (and probably more than) the next person, OBVIOUSLY. It is my hope that by continually doing what I love to do, which is talking about myself, someone perfect will eventually just fall in love with me. So I understand the impulse to lead with yourself. But some part of me—the part that is familiar with social interactions and general guidelines of human conduct—recognizes that this is neither the most practical nor the most thoughtful way to get to know a person. Some part of me knows that what you are supposed to do when you want to get to know someone is ask him/her questions about him/herself, and not just because you hope you can then turn the conversation back around to you. 

    One of the most important skills you can have as a human being is how to have a good conversation with another human being. This is a skill that I want to work on. What the passage above reveals for me is that the heart of becoming a better conversationalist is learning to ask better questions. This, of course, involves learning to listen better. The internet allows us to communicate more with more people, but it doesn’t improve our ability to listen. It actually harms our ability to listen by removing senses (human-to-human communication can involve all the senses), by degrading the quality of information transmission and by providing abundant distractions. In these ways, the internet actually harms conversation.

mother knows everything

I’m not making this up.
This isn’t satire. This is innovation.

  6. Inside Llewyn Davis

    thejamesli:

    Inside Llewyn Davis is by far one of the most personally affecting and beautiful films I have ever seen. It is a poignant commentary on the human condition told through the lens of an artist - somebody who refuses to simply just “exist”. Like The Odyssey, it is about endless aimless wandering and epic indeterminacy. That for the many of us hungry for life in a lifeless world, we are cursed to be forever searching, and risk losing everything in the hope of making a mark on this world. 

    And there, of course, is the Coen Brothers’ usual rapt attention to light, and strange dark humor, with not a single line wasted. The songs in this film are folk at their best - raw, deeply personal and often uncomfortable. 

    Personally, it’s prepared me with the life I am fated with, with bad cheques, couches, financial uncertainty and artistic frustration. Because even if you don’t have a label, or ever make a cent, or even have a home… as long as you make music, you are a musician, and that’s all that matters. And it is always better than just existing.
