    1. Spinning up a simple web app used to require months of development, a team of people, and tons of capital for (physical!) servers. Today a single person can build more than a team of ten in a weekend. We see it every day on Product Hunt.

      Medium article.

    1. Boiled down, Medium is sim­ply mar­ket­ing in the ser­vice of more mar­ket­ing. It is not a “place for ideas.” It is a place for ad­ver­tis­ers. It is, there­fore, ut­terly superfluous.

    1. Sterlite Power manufactures India's most superior quality electric power cables from its state of the art manufacturing facility. We use best raw materials to manufacture power cables and are approved by major approving bodies and leading consultants. They have been fully type tested as per applicable IS and IEC standards.

    1. Pescovitz and his collaborators called Sony about them, and an archivist eventually found the tapes sitting in an underground, climate-controlled warehouse in western Pennsylvania.

      This relates to what we have been doing in class and using research and the help of archivists to find materials. This was also mentioned in the linguistic metadata in the subtitle of the page and provides more information. The original tapes were not touched for over 40 years and sat in a warehouse. Seems to be a little selfish to me.

    2. CD-ROM in 1992, and about two years ago NASA uploaded the nature sounds and greetings on SoundCloud, without the music. The lack of a vinyl version, even in the days of digital, seemed like a missed opportunity.

      This passage shows an example of multiple mediums of aural communication. This record was actually already released on CD and then partially released onto a website and app called Soundcloud 2 years ago. It is just now being released onto vinyl. These are 3 different mediums of aural communication that are targeted for different audiences. Vinyls are more for the baby boomer generation and modern hipsters like me, Soundcloud is for the millennials and CD-ROM are for the generation before them. This would mean that each generation wanted to hear this record and the producers wanted everyone to hear it as well.

    1. That future is not given, but depends on the medium the group is imagining. It thus depends on the properties of the medium that the group is exploring, selecting, and practicing. On the one hand, technology enables a new medium, which is imagined as shaping the future, on the other hand the future is imagined as shaping the new medium, which then should drive technology.

      This relationship between imagined futures and how they mold the medium, leave out the bridged with the present. If history with Kay's group repeats, what fills the gap between the prototypes of the present and the imagined future, is a form of dystopia.

      Esta relación entre los futuros imaginados y cómo moldean el medio deja por fuera los puentes con el presente. Si la historia con el grupo de Kay se repite, lo que llena la brecha entre el presente de los prototipos y el futuro imaginado es una forma de distopia.

    2. Computing is to take the role of an infrastructure: much as books need light, but are not modeled after the light’s logic, the medium might draw, where necessary, on the computing possibilities provided by the OS in the background, but it should not be driven by them. Instead, the dynamic spatial medium should be driven by properties of the medium itself, and as such, it should drive technology.

      Esta relación entre frente y fondo, entre infraestructura y medio es importante sin embargo. ¿Cómo se pasa de la una a la otra? Grafoscopio, es una infraestructura para un medio escritural, pero esa transcición entre fondo y frente ayuda a cambiar la forma en que se escribe.

    1. If I have a number of ways of expressing and shaping my message, then the questions that confront me are: which mode is best, most apt, for the content / meaning I wish to communicate? Which mode most appeals to the audience whom I intend to address? Which mode most corresponds to my own interest at this point in shaping the message for communication? Which medium is preferred by my audience? Or by me? How am I positioning myself if I choose this medium or this mode rather than those others

    1. Thus was born Your human personality, and since its birth have I impelled You to nourish,support and strengthen it, by filling You with longings, hopes, ambitions, and aspirations, withall the various manifestations of Desire; which are but the human phases of My Will, operatingin the preparation and development of a medium capable of expressing perfectly My Attributeson Earth

      The human journey has been one of being strengthened by longings, hopes, ambitions, aspirations and manifestations so as to develop a vehicle capable of expressing God here on Earth.

    2. This, then, was the first condition into which You awakened when You entered into Earthexpression, and is what is called the Edenic state or dwelling in the Garden of Eden.This Edenic state represents the Celestial phase of Impersonal Consciousness, or that state inwhich You were still consciously One with Me, though now confined in a mortal medium ofexpression

      In the beginning even though in body mind, the human expression was still consciously solely guided by God.

    3. Thus were now manifest all the various mediums for the Earth expression of My Idea; and You,being one of My Attributes, naturally had dominion over all of these mediums, or possessed thepower of utilizing any or all of them, if necessary, for the full and complete expression of Your --My Attributes -- powers and possibilities.In this manner and for this reason alone did You and Your Brothers and Sisters come into humanexpression. While in human form yet Your expression was so entirely Impersonal, that, thoughself-conscious, you still looked wholly to Me within for inspiration and guidance
    4. So it was then that the first tendency to think yourself as separate from Me was born. Thecomplete consciousness of separation did not become established until long after.In the beginning, when You thus first entered into Earth expression, obeying the impulse I hadsent forth through My concentrated Thought, You, one of My Attributes, surrounded or clothedYour Self with My Idea of My Self in expression as the particular Attribute You represented.You being the animating Force of that Idea.In other words, My Idea of My Self expressing that particular Attribute then became the Soul ofYour particular expression. But that Idea or Soul is not You, remember, for You are really a partof Me, being My Self in expression through the medium of that particular Attribute.Having clothed Your Self with My Idea, this Idea then, through the necessity of Its be-ing,immediately began to attract to Itself the necessary Thought Substance requisite for theexpression of that particular Attribute, and to build and shape it into My Image and Likeness. Itthus became a Holy Temple, filled with My living Presence, because inhabited by You, one ofMy Divine Attributes

      First there was a tendency to think as being separate, however the consciousness of separation did not occur until later.... First entered the realm of Earth, one of Gods attributes.... Then became a particular expression and this attracted to itself "the necessary Thought Substance requisite for the expression of that particular Attribute, and to build and shape it into My Image and Likeness. It thus became a Holy Temple, filled with My living Presence, because inhabited by You, one of My Divine Attribute."

    5. But there yet remained the final and culminating medium of expression.Up to this point, while each perfectly expressed some phase of My Nature, yet all existingmediums and avenues were unconscious of Me, and were mediums of expression only as a wireis a medium for conducting heat, light and power.The conditions were ripe, however, for the creation of mediums through which My DivineAttributes could find conscious expression, conscious not only of their relationship to Me, but oftheir ability and power to express My Idea.It was at this moment in Time that You and Your Brothers and Sisters were born into existenceas human expressions, coming into manifestation as you did, similarly with all other mediums, inresponse to My concentrated Thought, in which I saw all the infinite variety of My Attributes inactual expression in entitized forms, each manifesting in predominance some particular phase ofMy Being, and each conscious of Me, Its Creator and Expressor

      Humanity was birthed so God could have mediums that can express God consciously...

    6. The next stage was the developing and preparing of avenues or mediums through which I couldexpress the manifold phases, possibilities and powers of My Idea.The outward evidence of this was what is known as the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms,which, each in turn, as it came into manifestation, gradually unfolded higher and more complexstates of consciousness that enabled Me more and more clearly to express the infinite phases andvariety of My Nature.It was at this stage that I looked upon My Creation, as stated in My other Revelation, and sawthat It was good

      The preparation of mediums to express God.......

    7. In the beginning, at the dawn of a new Cosmic Day, when the Word consciousness was justawakening and the stillness of Cosmic Night yet prevailed, I The THINKER, conceived MyIdea.This My Idea of My Self in manifestation in a new condition, called Earth expression, I sawcompletely pictured in the mirror of My Omniscient Mind. In this mirror I saw the real Earthshining forth brilliantly in the Cosmos, -- a perfect Sphere, where all the Infinite phases,attributes and powers of My Divine Nature were finding perfect expression through the mediumof Angels of Light, living Messengers of My Will, My Word in the Flesh, even as It is in theCelestial World of the Eternal.I saw My Self manifesting outwardly as Nature, and My Life as the vivifying and evolvingPrinciple back of all Manifestation. I saw Love, the Divine Creative Power, as the animating andvitalizing Force back of all Life, and My Desire to give perfect expression to that Love as thePotential and Real Cause and Reason of the birth of My Idea.All this I saw mirrored in My All-seeing and All-knowing Mind, which could see and reflectonly the Soul of things or their Reality. Therefore this that I saw pictured in My Mind was theReal Earth, in fact, its beginning, its conception into Cosmic being

      Gods inspiration .................

    8. Just so will I develop and unfold all My mediums of expression, which shall finally, unitedly andcompletely picture forth My Idea from out their souls, in all the glory of Its perfection.At present these mediums are of such nature that they require many languages of many types,from the simplest to the most complex, composed of almost an infinite number of Words, toexpress My Idea.But when I shall have completely thought out My Idea, or shall have perfected My manymediums of expression, then shall My Idea shine forth in every Word, each, in fact, being aperfect part or phase of My Idea, all so chosen and arranged that they will really be as one Word,radiating the sublime significance of My Meaning.Then shall all languages have melted, merged, into one language, and all words into One Word;for all mediums shall have become One flesh, the now perfected medium for the completeexpression in One Word of My Idea, -- My SELF.Then shall My SELF, now capable of being expressed by these perfected Words, shine throughIts medium of expression, -- through the personalities, their bodies, minds and intellects; and theWord shall have become flesh, or shall BE the flesh

      I am being fashioned, as is everyone else to be clear conduits for the expression of Substance,the expression of the inspirations of God..............

    1. In my experience, email becomes a pit where ideas go off to die.

      Well...applies to blogs as well even when in a fishbowl. Readers are not codeswitching carefully and intentionally.

    2. The #WalkMyWorld Project is an open education, open publishing, and open research initiative. In it we develop and facilitate a mentored, open, online learning community in which educators and their students use social media (e.g. Twitter) to connect and share.

    1. If you go to http://via.hypothes.is/bavatuesdays.com/a-long-short-history-of-reclaim-hosting/, you'll see eight line-by-line comments to his post.

      This is cool, I may have somehow missed the fact that annotations on an entire page could be made public like that. This was really useful for showing me the power of Hypothesis in a way that made sense (the comparison to Medium is dead on and resonates given the similarities in the workflow).
