Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof

Once upon a time, but not here, not now

Koosah“In those terrible places designed to rob us of our bodies and our spirits, we sustained each other.” — Philip Levine

Once upon a time, but not here, not now,
We sustained each other. Weak and varied,
We communed against the unbreakable dark.
It was not advantage we were seeking
But defiance in the presence of the truth.
We flourish then we fail and fade away.

New study questions the “packet switching” theory of Internet communications

A conservative computer science think tank in Maryland has published a paper claiming that packet switching, a foundational element of web communications, is much less widely accepted by the scientific community than is commonly reported.

The Institute of Computer Sciences, located in Arundel MD, is devoted to researching digital media from a Biblical perspective.

“Packet-switching is a theory,” said institute director Dr. Lyle Schmetterling. “There is a serious debate in the scientific community as to the reliability of data supporting this viewpoint. The complexity of Internet communications calls into question the idea that it is self-generated and mechanistic, a notion many in leftist academia have long presented as fact.”

Adios, Walking the Room

My favorite podcast, Walking the Room, has ended. I had a few feelings and ideas I wanted to register.

When I say Walking the Room is my favorite podcast I mean my next favorites don’t even chart – and they are great podcasts. As a professional journalist (not an entertainment journalist) I wrote about Greg Behrendt twice, the podcast once, and Dave Anthony once.

When I was younger, I was not a Comedy Fan. What did I need comedy for when all of my friends were funnier than any club meatheads or altcomedy prima donnas the market offered me? It was similar with music. I didn’t need to go see rock shows when I could see The Jazz Greats grabbing their crotches in Antigone’s basement or Ian playing cante jondo in the gravel lot on the alley opposite Max’s.
