@ChicagoMBA I'm trying to figure out the best way to think about networked empathy as we speak. Will keep you posted. @pmarcaWhen James found out that today is both National Ice Cream Day *and* International Chess Day, well, those of you who know him can imagine.Tennessee Williams had great taste in places to go and write.@pmarca I've been studying sociopathy non-stop for weeks for a project and you are right...networked empathy is the only solution!"After dinner," said James, "I'm going to digitize this book." http://t.co/Q3wN9wh6KwA library with an entire ship inside! http://t.co/RaznPzTUfPThe myth of the lone genius is completely outdated in the Imagination Age. http://t.co/jypNzIHHxeImagine what you might create inside there. http://t.co/93S261szli

On my way to give a talk about what we can learn from salespeople, psychopaths and zen masters.I once saw an old gravestone etched with a phrase that stays in my mind: "Whatsoever thy hand doeth, doeth with all thy might."
@appendixjournal @lettersofnote he's not shooting the idea down.@alexismadrigal #2 on 5 Intriguing Things is a verbatim conversation @heather_berlin and I had yesterday about death, memory & imagination.

Have *you* ever seen music? http://t.co/AkKZDkCBEE @CuriosityReview@pickover do they have tiny, fully functioning brains inside?@pmarca I agree. The concept of what dominance by moneyed interest means has evolved, just like the arms they granted the right to bear.

Yet the US has always been an experiment...@pmarca one of the reasons I left journalism (aside from slow industry transformation) was the dry info delivery method.@pmarca I spent several years investigating and reporting on relationships between corp & gov, and doing math on contract procurement.@pmarca If you mean so we can try and implement policy change by understanding how it developed, I'm with you.@pmarca what do you mean balanced by?@rachsyme @MARIADAHVANA @rachsyme @chapmanchapman @brendanjcahill @Tim_OConnell @theodoragoss etc. are you following @WorstMuse?!"I'm training myself to make the computer-perfect move," James said, "but I'm still playing humans."@mkazoo @parisreview They went to high school together?!
