  1. Be fierce, eat what you kill. Buy an Android tablet and
    $ sudo cd /; rm -rf #THIS IS A JOKE, DO NOT DO THIS
    your Linux desktop today!

      I’ll get a tablet someday. For now . . . well, I’m a producer, not a consumer. I’m old fashioned enough to prefer a desktop (Linux!). One with a big-ass full-width keyboard and two HD monitors and gear for scanning and digitizing old meida.

    Thanks for posting this.

    I read @jonl’s live tweet . . . still haven’t made the time to listen to bruces actual speech.

    I look forward to Bruce’s closing rants (eloquent ramblings) every year for years now. It’s like a real holy day when I get a hold of the latest on mp3.

     ALSO; re: SXSW 2013…JASH videos. The one that’s 5:01 is excellent. Uh, attempting a link was terrible. JASH. comedy.

  5. Cowicide says:

    Why, oh why didn’t they allow a download of the mp3 from SoundCloud?

    Here… I’ll disrupt this inconvenience for those who want to put this on an iPod or whatever…

    Downloadable link edit: they already broke it… :(

    Hopefully it’ll keep working…

    yes we are all in decay, but TRYing to make things better in human systems that are clearly ridiculous and harmful to individuals, peace, other creatures, oneself, is not a crime against your logic. 
    if you accept that there’s no solving it, you get hedonism. hey, it’s all going to hell in a handbasket! grab a printed-gun and jump in!also, he’s one of the more respected, but he’s not really saying much – he’s just ranting with this dismissive ‘how could you not know this?!’ tone, which by minute 49 has wiped out ones attention, and you miss the point of his denouement. which is, for those who didn’t get to it, not really much.

    You can watch the keynote on YouTube, but the sound is echoey, so listen to the SoundCloud audio and sync the two (not that hard to do)

    Web 1.0 is still alive. It’s still as big as it was in the late 1990s, just proportionally it looks small compared to the growing web 2.0.   Things don’t die, they just fade into the background.
