Everything there is to know about you is already known.  It's the new
reality.  Most everyone is grumpy about it.  I'm actually kind of
jazzed.  In my worldview, the single biggest obstacle to global peace
is the inability to detect and punish cheaters.


Phishing becomes a little bit less attractive when victims have the
option of confronting the perps.

Of course, the current connundrum is the assymetrical relationship
between those who have the information (IRS, ChoicePoint, WalMart, GOP,
etc.) and the rest of us whose assigned job is to be compliant
prosumers to be exploited for profit.

Railing against the inevitability of life?  All complex adaptive
systems expand, contract, differentiate, die out, spawn new tendrills,
etc.  Cultural evolution is inevitable.  


There's currently 6.4b on the planet.  It doesn't bother me that most
of them don't want a close, personal relationship with me.  It saves me
the effort of telling them all to piss off.  I'm grateful for the gated
communities.  In an ideal world, all the pathological antisocial people
would all spontaneously opt to take themselves out of circulation.

Cheers, Jason Aaron Osgood / Seattle WA
