      Can anyone shed light on how this word functions in rhet studies in general, and in this paragraph in particular?

      As it is, I'm reading it as a source or well or magnet that a culture exaptates toward or "adexaptates" to.

    1. The present is sticky.  The Long Now became the Long Right Now, somehow. This is not what we had in mind when we philosophised about atemporality, but it's probably what we deserved.

    1. Statics, respect matter generally, in a state of rest, and include Hydrostatics, or the Laws of fluids particularly, at rest or in equilibrio Dynamics, used as a general term include Dynamics proper, or the Laws of solids in Motion and Hydrodynamics, or Hydraulics, those of fluids in Motion Pneumatics teach the theory of air, its Weight, Motion, condensation, rarifaction &c Acoustics or Phonics, the theory of sound Optics the Laws of Light & vision Physics or Physiology in a general sense, mean the doctrine of the Physical objects of our senses

      It is interesting to note that all these subjects, so succinctly explained here, are all under the umbrella term "Physics" now. During Jefferson's time, there probably wasn't a standard of learning to follow, so he had to list out the specifics here. We've come far in that now mentioning to physics to someone with some schooling will mean them considering some of these things instead of just "the doctrine of Physical objects of our senses."

    1. At some point in the following decade json-head.appspot.com stopped working. Today I’m bringing it back, mainly as an excuse to try out the combination of Python 3.5 async, the Sanic microframework and Zeit’s brilliant Now deployment platform.

      Oh neat, I had no idea now supported Python. Another option available!

    1. In fact, members of the Long Now would have me say that it was founded in the year 01996, a way of writing dates that presently accommodates a further 97,985 years. To put this into perspective—50,000 years before the Long Now runs out of digits, Niagara Falls will have eroded its remaining 32 kilometers to Lake Erie. That communion will occur a full 30,000 years after, according to one lexico-statistical model, the point at which human languages will have retained only one percent of their present-day words. By the time the Long Now has a Y100k problem, the constellations you recognize will be gone from the sky. I lay this out to make the point that Long Now folks embed a puckishly provocative optimism in everything they do.

      Is it just me, or am I detecting an underlying disdain from the author towards The Long Now Foundation? If so, I would not blame her as the beliefs The Long Now hold appear surreal and unbelievable to me. I was unaware that their was a group that held such views.

    1. Docker Swarm을 이용한 쉽고 빠른 분산 서버 관리 : Docker Swarm으로 서버 오케스트레이션 하는 방법을 설명한 글이다. 현재 사용 가능한 오케스트레이션 도구들의 장단점도 정리되어 있고 Swarm이 제공하는 기능을 설명한 후 실제로 따라 해 보면서 테스트해볼 수 있게 글이 작성되어 있어서 오케스트레이션 도구를 검토하고 있다면 찬찬히 읽어봐야 할 글이다. 얼마 전에 Docker Swarm을 보고 간단하면서 기능이 강력해서 꽤 좋은 인상을 받았는데 정리된 글이 나와서 반갑다.(한국어)

    1. the forsythia bush

      Another thing in a certain place in the neighborhood where she lived. Now I think the poem's first 2 1/2 lines were purposely provocative. They keep you guessing, and make you keep reading.

    2. under the back porch

      Oh. I guess she's listing things and places in her life.

    3. I am from clothespins, from Clorox and carbon-tetrachloride.

      What? How can you be from clothespins?
