Colbert hilarious look at Fox News’s obsession over “exactly what kind of boots will be on the ground” in the Middle East
“Apple making software that anyone can connect to is a very Google play, while Google developing beautiful hardware with Nest is a very Apple play,”
This sounds exciting. The above quote also refers to the kindof integration/collaboration/cooperation I have bemoaned as missing from the “The Big 5″ Internet companies (Twitter, Apple, Google, Amazon, and Facebook) I’ve spent the late spring and all summer reading about.

and the above has been constantly verified by actual tests. Before these tests were done, I often felt a sense of iadequacy that I didnt seem to experience that up-tick in productivity that the “multi-taskers” claimed. Often they claim that “I’m just made that way”; “it’s how I roll”. Studies on precisely those people proved otherwiase.
“I am tempted to despair…. must be time for some Hauerwas.” – from @Tim_Suttle
“To hope in the midst of despair is an act of profound freedom. Hope is performed in defiance of the powers of the world who want us to hate each other because it’s good for business (if your business is war).”
Yes, indeed, Hauerwas often serves me as one who calls us back to attention to the hope we are to embody.
