I want to fell the bones snap as I pull the limbs apart. I want to roll the veins around my mouth with my tongue and feel the warm blood as it dribbles down my chin. I want all the round pinkish brown rubbery bits from inside (except the bit with the gravel and the greenish-purple wobbly bit, it doesn't taste good). I want to use those claws to pick the feathers from between my teeth when I'm done.

So, given the rapid speed of change in the landscape of IT industry, I have to wonder how relevant our experiences and lessons would be to the young'uns.

There's no point in telling the younger folk anything, they already know it all. Wait until they're older with a little more experience and find out they still have much to learn.

Ubuntu already saw the light and is pushing even harder towards convergence.

With Microsoft announcing their going to have different UIs for different form factors, and Apple going as far as having completely different OSes under thei different UIs on different form factors, the only true convergence story left standing is Ubuntu. One Unity, one experience, on all different form factors.

Let the market decide.

Please please make sure Jar Jar comes back. He was what made episodes I and II. I'm so looking forward to getting my picture taken with him, and maybe R2D2 in mouse ears, at Walt Disney World.

I hope they do up a Tattooine cantina as a family-style restaurant and some animatronic singing Ewoks having a hoe-down would be most excellent. Maybe they could transform that Epcot sphere into a deathstar for the lulz and have daily incinerations of the Canada pavilion.

It'll be the swagalicious product that will remake Episodes VII-IX what the originals were: a massive toy sales ad campaign. Nobody does that better than Disney. Nobody. Mees-a thinks-a so.

Most of the 1% to .1% are nothing more than hardworking Americans with a Calvinistic work ethic who have been successful. It is easy to do the math and realize how a two income family can break into the 1% territory after a couple of decades of hard work and fiscally conservative habits. Socially and economically, they are nothing like the top .1%.

Yes indeed, fully 60% of Americans are in the top 1%.
