@IAmGeekRoom @OmniReboot @rhipratchett @GailSimone not a great time for a gun pic._____________________________________ .@sriramk @pmarca @NYMag as a kid it was my fantasy to choose books for wealthy people who wanted to look smart *and* needed to be educated.@Tim_OConnell I don't ever want to hear you say your hat is out of the ring!@NYMag it wasn't the joke that made people uncomfortable.@nilerodgers love it!@marshallk @alexismadrigal I might not be the best judge as I now see the social web as an overlay on everything.@alexismadrigal @marshallk what *isn't* part of the social web?@fmbutt @pmarca I read @zerotoonebook and I've listened to @peterthiel many times.

"The creative adult is the child who has survived," by Ursula K. LeGuin, is the mantra of the Imagination Age.@jrhusney @mikearauz I love that. But what does it mean?
