  • Decisions, Decisions

    “The way to make better decisions is to make more of them” -Anthony Robbins We do learn from retrospective analysis of effects. I question the need to make our own bad decisions in order to learn. We ought to be able to watch others make mistakes and avoid them.

  • Dunbar on Facebook

    You’ve read my previous posts on Dunbar‘s Number, right? Go on…. I’ll wait. Remember the one on Scoble and Facebook? Good. For a while, I fastidiously ensured my number of friends stayed below 150 because I took the idea of Dunbar’s number as a life strategy. Then I let it slip to 200 which I pared back down […]

  • Project 365: Day 021

    Project 365: Day 021, originally uploaded by Ezra S F. Day 21: Lunch at On the Border. The light over the table fascinates me with the opaque head so the light is thrown against the metal to illuminate the table. Kind of like our photography umbrellas. Read and post comments | Send to a friend

  • Non-Secure Content

    Apparently designers are embedding video from external sources in our Vista 8 environment. Internet Explorer complains when elements of a secure page reference non-secure elements. In this case, CE/Vista has the secure page. The embedded video is a non-secure element. At best the IE complaint is to prompt the user to pick whether to view […]

  • Unable to locate the page you requested

    The CE/Vista error “Unable to locate the page you requested” is supposed to be a more user friendly error than the HTTP 404 Page Not Found. Okay, sure between the two, more users would understand the CE/Vista one than the generic HTTP one. The only suggestion for dealing with these is to contact the server […]

  • Facebook Link RSS

    The people I know on Facebook post fascinating things. [1] The people I count as my “Facebook friends” have something interesting to say. I enjoy reading the partisan politics, science, recipes, web comics, and even the celebrity gossip my contacts post. The status updates are one way. Links are another way. Since Facebook copied the […]

  • On Loving Our Enemies

    (Originally posted to ezrasf.com) In honor of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., it seems we need his wisdom more than ever. A friend posted part of this on Facebook, so I found this expanded version. Why should we love our enemies? The first reason is fairly obvious. Returning hate for hate multiples hate, adding […]

  • Google Conspiracy?

    Found this gem called The Great Google Coverup about Google changing their minds about continuing to filter searches following a Chinese supported cyber-attack. Whether the attack origin was by Chinese government employees, corporate thieves, or kids living in their parent’s basement, accounts were compromised. Personal data fell into the hands of people who didn’t own it. This […]
