The right wing can’t govern. They gave us Iraq and the Great Recession. They gave us epic national debt. And that was … Continue reading Next
Mon, 07 Nov 2016 22:32:29 +0000New music by me – Deserts 2 – disquiet0251 The last thing I put out in this stream of ideas was Playing In Tongues. After about ten years of making heavily predetermined music, I’m inspired by looseness, flow and improvisation. Revelation instead of perspiration. So far this music isn’t as successful as my earlier stuff. … Continue reading Deserts 2 – disquiet0251
Sun, 06 Nov 2016 17:21:04 +0000Women working in Trump’s orbit have been in a supremely hostile work environment. That’s a given. No news. But that only applied on the set of a reality show, or a troubled real estate business. This will now apply at the White House. And women who work in politics or who simply want a voice … Continue reading Dark days for women

And so you don’t think about the whiteness of your neighborhood, your school system or … Continue reading Why all white people are racist, but can’t handle being called racist: the theory of white fragility
Mon, 19 Sep 2016 17:38:08 +0000Instead of calling myself “White”, I am trying out “Euro.” It’s working so far. It’s a comfortable word to say. Unlike “European-American,” it’s euphonious. This is part of my effort to break out of the linguistic trap of the one-drop rule.
Thu, 15 Sep 2016 17:50:26 +0000Why would Amazon stop squeezing the Echo at the half-sized Dot? Why wouldn’t they keep going to reach phone size? And why not keep getting smaller than that, since Echo’s voice-first UX allows the phone to be screenless? Amazon Nano Echo needs a radio for Internet connectivity. It needs low power bluetooth to connect to … Continue reading Alexaphone? Too big. Think AlexaPods instead.
Wed, 14 Sep 2016 18:41:34 +0000Men talk over or interrupt women more often than other men. This is sexist. Men should be aware of the pattern and take steps against it.

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 17:49:35 +0000The 9/11 attacks were clearly meant to sucker-punch the U.S., but also to lure the country into war.
