I have been working on a LOT of stuff lately.   I don't even know where to start, as I've written over 40,000 words in the past 7 days alone across 25 or so different nodes in development of the same project, so its been pretty interesting.

I messed up the tabled layout at the last minute but I almost nailed it, and if you're an oldschool web designer you understand.

laugh at me but also read a lot of info just scroll side to side.  but this took me a solid hour and then blew up at the last minute :)

and got all mis-aligned.

^ its a directory of the 7 or so blogs i have launched and been writing in, because they support some very cool software features that will help over time and even can integrate directly into my network im building - which is  and there is a few thousand words written about that at all levels of english comprehension, in the various blogs, listed at link link link link link (which is  lord of the rings joke  but really it just looked cool and 5 is a lot easier to copy paste than ten of those

Well, I spent about three hours fixing a bunch of things here, very methodically-   I bet you'll notice.   Clear your browser cache and cookies and log back in, and oooh boy it's definitely faster over here.   Enjoy.  :-D  and Good Morning.

 

Much work on the big secret project continues (and by big secret project I mean multi decade long project) continues.

 

More Coffee.  More Grateful Dead Music.  More Writing.  More Helping People Get Things They Need Done Done, and more Teaching people How to have the tools available to think and navigate this world and treat each other the best always, and realize if you can help it- that nobody is the same, at all- so your comparison is really your insecurity talking or your willingness to put something in a box..

+++@@@ ~ @@@++++ Yo! Hey, Hey you! Yeah You. Sup? :D =~~= - (there may be a few spelling errors in here.)

--> (Oh, but what the heck has Omar been doing with himself???! Well a lot, but not all of it's relevant to you, so read these next bits for what IS relevant to your life:: (just not quite.)
I'm working on about 70 or so secret projects, that all relate and inter-connect to each-other, and all run the same software, all can talk to each-other, all can share data, and so on... And I am writing the software, from scratch. Yep.
Stay tuned but don't ask me highly technical stuff unless you wish to help somehow, (but i promise your question is likely not actually highly technical), i'm still figuring a way to address that interactively and in a way that exceeds any unformed expectation ..
I'll give you a hint: All of this has to do with streaming and video and moving pictures, customisability without being needlessly complex (even if you dont know how to check your email) it will still work... and it has to do with streaming, self expression and socio-cultural security, friendship, self-valuation and self-referential worth, self-station and ones network of friends and acquaintances, contacts, and it has to do with content autonomy, data integrity across the web, and finally burying the stupid egoic hatchet that has retarded standards compliance across web software, back ends, design teams, and browsers ...
Since human decided to write synthetic life and store it, and feed it electricity, and then let it make friends with other synthetic life (we call it software...) over the internet.
This is going to be an UN-precedented adventure, and we are already well well on our way to un-wraveling the thing, but working along side it, and integrating IT fully into the experience it's going to have . . .
The domains will largely remain secret until launch day, unless you are a tester... If you're good at that, don't waste my time by telling me about it here, drop a line to omar@ideamissing.com and tell me what the hell you're good at, but dont write a job interview or cover letter, because I'm not paying you. If you want to contribute to this project, you will understand the levity of it, I already trust you, and if not (make a decent case and dont fuck it up), and I'm sure that will be fine - but If you want to contribute to this project-you will understand the underlying fundamental WHY's that are driving the boat, because the project isnt going to have any use for you if you have just showed up expecting to get paid.
Eventually, there will be money, but thats not why this is important, it is not a means to an end, it is a very careful very long term effort to fix several very large problems, that affect a LOT of things, in a global way, by literally making an entirely new solution, that doesn' rely on existing parts to function, and yet works within the respects of existing web tech and parts, without relying on any of them as a point of failure.
This will all be under wraps until launch not because I'm worried about someone copying me (they can't- the idea is so weird they literally cannot think this way), and the entire thing will be a great fantastic surprise for all, in a fully positive way that does not hurt anything that has already been built out onto the web, or change how IT functions in any way, but what it will do is make a major splash, and not a negative disruptive one from ANYONES perspective, however "it will be fun." But the secrecy is due to two primary reasons: my own personal time constraints and steam while working and focusing, and the dilligence and respect for the life form I'm architecting here (yes software is alive when you put electricty into it and give it logic- it does have tangible anima..) and i dont believe the correct answer is AI.
I am not against AI, I just don't see how that is going to work so I will never focus any effort there. For problems other than what I am solving, sure it's a neat thing, but it is not what will drive this. Anyway, your relationship with the network is important, and it's not ready for anyone to make friends with it and play yet. (It's not ready for anyone to use it yet.) But do not worry you will be aware when it happens.
:) So you will have to be patient, but when this is all ready to go, justly know and understand I am not just launching a site. I'm re-drawing / engineering both non-quanta and qualia as they pertain to data modeling and flow (how a something on the internet [usually software or a person] interact with the internet, and their input into it.
And all in new ways .. - Which is leading to the installing of an entire network of sites, all running the same software..and all connected. I'm calling it tenatively "the future present tense web." This is going to be fun. Talk to you later, I've got stuff to think through and design over here, and I also have to do all me normal things, I do eat and sleep...and I get asked all the time if I sleep, so yes, otherwise I wouldn't be typing this. I do all the same stuff you do in that regard. :-p

cross posted to facebook, well originated at facebook.  doesn't mean i am planning on using facebook, but i needed to contact someone i didn't have a number for, so I went into messenger, and did the reset password thing and all that .

 

anyway, i wrote one post, and browsed for about 20 minutes.  I am amazed, the only thing that's changed is my perspective.

 

:)

but for the better.

 

 

ok here's what I posted over there yonder.

Friends
 
 
Howdy Doodle Do! ~ // I'm not "back" but I'm not deleting my account again (at least as far as I can tell.) //
//Hope you are all well, and busily enjoying or trying to - your lives.//
Since I've been gone, (in the 2 months), five of you have tried to see where I was, or how I was, or even made any effort to contact me.
Granted, the experiment was not to contact that many of you, and see what happened.
If this was actual experimental design, there would be controls, and more variables. but it wasn't. I'm justly surprised though, I thought my count here was around 1,667 people, and engagement pretty consistent and "always trying to add value" a smile, info, etc. -
BUT.. here's my share for right now for you:
I had many interesting thoughts in the past two months, but this stuck out:
---If 5 people contacted me out of 1667, then it's safe to say a large percentage of these people while they're talking to you and interacting with you, it's only because they are "on the platform" or "its easy" or "they are already there" or "they just popped up" etc....
Of course, this is not always the situation, but that dynamic is likely relevant in your friends list as well, to a large degree.
Look into it, think about it. Much love, and hope you're doing well.
I'm crossposting this to mytribes.net (which is my facebook clone) and works pretty damn well now, but i am not actually trying to still get you to come use it. I'm not fond of trying to make horses drink water, I'd rather just tell them a few times it's there and they can find it. (so, in this case, mytribes.net is the water.) ha !
Make it a beautiful day / evening / etc
and if you are more old fashioned, and prefer the phone,
and you're on the list of people I trust, I have a landline now,
you can ask about it if you are so inclined to wish to use it.
That is all.
Oh, and enchiladas.
Always,
~O or R (depending), but always O, sometimes R. (lmfao.)

marketing folks - nothing new but take note:

branding a logo with a common symbol or universally known letter,
and obfuscating it just enough that it's hard to initially recognize,

then- pairing it with the associated text it abbreviates, and sticking to integrating
the second character into the first character - forces the brain to recall and store-

-the first character long enough to remember it is associated with the second one,
and long enough to see the word under it, and then after some time with any amount of,
repeated exposure -

the brand becomes a logos - it becomes a living representation of the brand, out there in the world, for real-

the icon becomes quite literally, alive in the minds of the people,

who have been exposed to it.. even if they didn't like it.

:)


... ! yeah. ::blink:: whoa right? okay, so-


think about companies you don't like logos without trying? drawing blanks?
think about a few companies you really like- the logo should come to mind instantly.

(which was easier)? which was pleasurable? what process did you go through emotionally,

trying to think about logos you didn't like the companies actions whom that logo is associated?


Anything interesting come up? Did anyone actually try the two question self assessment? :-)


there's more to all this, but I wanted to document and share my realization, and it is safely stored now in multiple places, and in my head too.

But. short version -


there is a lot more to all this, (there has to be)

and i don't know what that is yet , but -

we build sometimes a brick at a time..


This is today's marketing discovery. :)


love,
Omar

the world had generally in the sense of it, gone mad, and every one of its inhabitants, for some reason- decided to keep playing, because enough time had gone by gene--er-rationally nobody knew what to do, and not many knew how to fix this, and those who did realised that it wasn't fixable with bringing the rest of everyone along with , were sad about it for some time, then re-grouped and , and kept quiet. 

eventually, good things happened.  but that story has been written already, it just need be experienced. .

friend feed was a neat idea.  but they did only part of what i was hoping it could do.   rss is fucking incredible and works very well.  we have an overage of data and a lack of understanding and lack of options furthermore for creating an accurate---- and customised feed in the social space.

 

site:

 

will use stdin/out or a sql db and same,  to store rss lists of friends or sites on the web that are rss compatible,

 

you build

you read you happy

you share you post you feed is seen

you got list of feeds and some are site members (friends) some are elsewhere offsite

 

why the pull?

its honest its simple and honestly i dont know why else yet.

Law - "a patch" on reality held in affect by synthetic force or habituation, (usually installed without announcement) , of a group by either utility or intentional design of a self-referencing aspect of qualia or quanta as observed in the functional dynamics and day to day lives of said group, and as executed by a highly methodical and extremely logical, regimented iterative process appearing to have all control and dictate and omnipotently be aware of "all possibilities" of any given situation with a temporal faux-hyperbola in this described arrangement.

as dictated by the taking of residence in the fulcrum of the hyperbola and controlling the ratios to alter social-global perception by the use of laws and ideologies as published and described as "entertainment." 

this is only hard until you start to see it, then it's so self-evident you must bound time spent observing it consciously lest you destroy yourself.. 

also, basically we are talking about assuming the role of the generator of all reality, as observed through two eyes, ears, a nose etc. 

Back to the main point, law is a functional and ideological constructed semantic mesh of logic and reason, but underlying as fully unified modulo are the motivations and directives to control the acquisition or distribution of power, electricity, or inner health electricity. 

Moving on through the sequence,

This is functional language, and the description will change later depending on who is to understand it.  Right now, I'm just spitting out a note about something that I feel is important to re-frame, and moving onto whatever else I was doing, if you don't understand this don't complain about it hehe just ask or figure it out .

 

 

i really dont need to say that next sentence, and its due to a pattern i'd been always getting on facebook as a member.   the context and or content and or ideologies and paradigms i generally exist under are so much different than most i talk, i end up having to explain something, and its not been fun.  or i was attacked, but i dont care about that, its just an adverse self reaction to really being upset they didnt understand me. 

psychology online casually in most cases is dangerous, as we are entering into a new world of "suupposed and proported" responsibility online-  which is interesting because really you should be responsibile for what you post in general nayway, but for the permanent or semi permanent custodianship and chain of ownership for something said online.   which -  is clearly un natural as a proposition from the get go, and disregards things like time or even the falsity of the currently understood "time" , and many other variables of tremendous import barring even having to consider the situation in the first place,

 

but mainly- the big danger is this as society leaves all this data online and it gets easier to do so and look it up: (trust me search engines are better theres just more info and people need to learn how to search with operators to assist (like &, +, (), and stuff like that.  it matters.)  

the main point is it is dangerous to talk about stuff like that psychology in this case, online as some people who have a tendency to worry or self diagnose may read your story and freak themselves out, and take actions that are totally destructive .  which of course is entirely their fault.

 

but the posturing of all the "new laws" surrounding talking, and the internet, basically very very poorly attempt to re-create the conditional dynamics of a piece of written note, a printed document, or any piece of communication with info about a thing person place etc on it, and or a conversation between two people.   you cannot duplicate that exchange - and have it "live on" as a law, which says "a person is always responsible legally for everything they say on the internet."  "oh and by the way we're watching some people and wont say who, so behave" -  is not one that follows in accordance with natural law of physics, or any agglomerated 3-dimensional object with mass and density.  

 

This is likely going to be cleaned up and expanded later, this is an important thing to write about.

Now back to picking a domain for my news desk (daily blog) site, that doesn't make me sound like a flashy fleeting thing or an asshole.

:-)

 

I'll discuss the project further, but effectively it is a blog, and i am writing the software myself from scratch, because i want to authentically own the entire process, so i can learn what it looks like to work in those programming languages.

Reposted Omar A's discussion.

 

Does anyone want to use this website?

No, it's not dying, but please just read this, it's brief- thanks!    :-)

I'm not putting any eggs into this basket, or dedicating any more time to this project-

BUT -

(a) - Mytribes is not going away.

(b) - There is any reason to put any more energy into this site.

(c)- Does someone want to help? Open to ideas and changes.

(d)- Always leave room for option d.

There are a lot of things i get ideas about constantly, and this was one of them.  I feel though me and this project are presently at a logical lull point, or stasis- but not a logical end point.  I learned things, some of this code sucks, and I will make my own next instead of deal with those limitations any further, in regard to further improving the website you are reading this on.  

Unless there is anyone wanting to work with this code-base, and respect the existing project enough not to explode it, let me know if you want to make it do things, and know roughly how.  It's php, mysql, java script, ajax, a bit of plugin foo, html, and css.  12 core intel box with 24 threads and a 2tb ssd..  16 gigs of ram, and running ubuntu linux on a very custom bunch of scripts, lol with apache-2x .....oh and as long as your not into privilege escalation or doing anything patently illegal, you can ......>>>   (2) have full shell in the project account and a personal dir based one, and you can register a domain for it, and then host something out of it, as a vhosted apache script, or just ask and i'll host your site as long as it's not commercial, if it is i'll charge you something very fair to host it, and we'll play it together by ear.  but just in general if you want to work with me dont be a dick and listen, my ideas are strange but they all have decent reasons but it doesnt mean i'm right and i am definitely open to hearing other ideas unless i am holding tools and cutting something, for example.  Ha.. so bearing that in mind, if you like work that feels like discussion and play then let me know oho and you can keep the shell after too.

So, the above paragraph is written in geek, so if you started in on that hopefully you understood, or skipped to this point here with the remaining non technical tid-bits of this post following this sentence.. 

Well, the most notice-able thing off all, and perhaps my biggest surprise, is nobody wants to use this website, or if they do, they're not.  and I don't want you to tell me you planned on it but then life happened - there is not a reason to excuse yourself, I had zero expectations of you, dear reader.   But I did hope that you would find this website, and once you made an account, you'd make some kind of attempt at regular use.  I cannot say what effort was put in, by the over 300 people who have made an account, but if you look at the results, I can say the only people I can remember posting more than once are the following:

Lilli Lovecraft , Gary Warmerdam , Rin Rin , , Amitesh Kumar , Aneta Haberle , Anthony Dinh , Albert Hofmann  , David Berman , Eric Meeks , Erika Todden Cooper Fabian Dupuis , Ginger  , Greg Carter , Holistic Hempire , Horatio Lyons , Irina Ondusko , Matt Murtaugh, mediaonefx James Zandreiatti Jimmy Mac Kamikaze Kelly Kathryn Niflis Johnson Kevin Lee Ladyfingers.fb nigel r mitchell pyrokitten Reía | Hazel & Sage | Roaming Gnome Shamieonjaime Sine nomine Sheri Marie satmeher Teresa Stansfield Tarantilia Ultra Healers Virginia Martin Wanderer Yeti zman Zanya 

(if i forgot anyone, my apologies, those of you who tried it, you tried it- thats groovy and i sincerely appreciate that.  it's more than the other 300 of the people who came and signed up did.   )   you're bold.   the rest of you, and those of you who are on this list but dont post here, i assume and hope you are in good health, and have zero present need to speak to me, but retain some method of contact if you consider us to be on mutually good terms.  :-)

[ what i've been doing with my time: remind me to expand this section if i dont.   healing, eating, working on about 10 different new projects, oh and if you didnt catch it, you can contact me at 1-833-780-2200....  :D  ] and i will be happy to hear from you and catch some of your on goings, and I'll update you on some new stuff over here that's pretty neato.  :)  ]

 

..............so then there's the elephant in the room, nobody uses this site. (the elephant is the bold paragraph, not the paragraph following it enclosed in brackets.  [ paragraph inside brackets, if you dont know what a bracket is.]    <---    So, that being said,

 

It is hard not to notice that, and some of these features are subscription based, and I am going to not renew those features at the end of that trial period.  So we have probably about one month on some of those, and two on another few, and perhaps a few more but not more than 3 to 5, and then this website is probably going to look like wet horse tail, because i am not going to pay for something nobody uses.   :-)  Not a sucker here.  Moving along..  This is your polite advanced warning that while this website isnt going anywhere, or your data, there may be certain features missing, like - this theme -  because you pay for it.  after some time.   

Changing the subject, of course this would be different if even one person had made or attempted to make a solid commitment to using this as some kind of platform for self or for starting a business idea, or to augment an existing business.  It had been set up for that, I don't think anyone noticed that you can sell things here, run video conferences, privately share files of any extension, market an album and sell it here in the store, sell your used clothes, post an ad for a personal, write a blog post about your views on the pandemic, write a personal piece once a week summarizing your previous week of life, but do it for yourself, and it just happens to be public,  or if you are bashful, or private, mark it "me only" in the visibility settings...

 

The point is, there is so much shit this website does, but without anyone using it, i'm done dude.  got other stuff to create and this is not anything i'm going to work on further unless as aforementioned someone comes in and acts as a wild catalyst, then we can change all that and the whole thing is back on the table.

Anywho-

Additionally, if you had not figured out by now how to get a hold of me, and somehow think this action makes it harder to contact me, stop being a moron and write down my phone number and email address from the following website:   www.ideamissing.com  

Then feel free to call or email me when-ever you'd like, as long as you have a point in doing so, and don't just want me to listen to your voice. 

 I turn my phone and email and laptop off when I sleep, so if you've got an idea, give it a try, the worst that can happen is you end up leaving a voice message.  

Please don't be that idiot that relies on people checking call logs for me to call you back either, I hate those people.  Just tell me something, tell me who it is that's talking, and tell me how to get back to you, otherwise don't bother ;-)

 

 

here's to hoping that you create and generate for yourself and those around you,

....a wonderful day, and week, and hopefully whatever-the-fuck you're working on or trying to do is thusly made enjoyable by you.

-with love, as always,

lest nobody forget:  the un-observed variables "of life" have an affect, just as do that of the observed ones, they are of equal import in any situation or dynamic, or potential one which hasn't been agglomerated yet to 3-d format...  These are just as much a part of the fabric of the situation as the observable phenomena, even if you did not intend for the un-observed forces, gravity, air, di-magnetic waves, or etc -  it's all there-  and they contribute equally to the story, just as much as the kinematic force from your arm throwing the rock into the pond, and all that fun stuff you got distracted on with looking at ripples in the water, and forgetting entirely about the biochemical reactions that were (1) in process already when you arrived, then inside your body to throw the rock, all the permutated possibilities of you imagining or not)( , of the rocks effect, the environments reaction to you imagining this, and so on fractalizing into infinity.  but its all there, we just dont usually observe with that level of filtration on our information as the life unfolds.    We usually keep it simpler, but this is how the brain works, it likes to reduce functions, just like a programmer knows minified code works easier.

I'll give you a hint: All of this has to do with streaming and video and moving pictures, customisability without being needlessly complex (even if you dont know how to check your email) it will still work... and it has to do with streaming, self expression and socio-cultural security, friendship, self-valuation and self-referential worth, self-station and ones network of friends and acquaintances, contacts, and it has to do with content autonomy, data integrity across the web, and finally burying the stupid egoic hatchet that has retarded standards compliance across web software, back ends, design teams, and browsers ...
Since human decided to write synthetic life and store it, and feed it electricity, and then let it make friends with other synthetic life (we call it software...) over the internet.
This is going to be an UN-precedented adventure, and we are already well well on our way to un-wraveling the thing, but working along side it, and integrating IT fully into the experience it's going to have . . .
The domains will largely remain secret until launch day, unless you are a tester... If you're good at that, don't waste my time by telling me about it here, drop a line to omar@ideamissing.com and tell me what the hell you're good at, but dont write a job interview or cover letter, because I'm not paying you. If you want to contribute to this project, you will understand the levity of it, I already trust you, and if not (make a decent case and dont fuck it up), and I'm sure that will be fine - but If you want to contribute to this project-you will understand the underlying fundamental WHY's that are driving the boat, because the project isnt going to have any use for you if you have just showed up expecting to get paid.
Eventually, there will be money, but thats not why this is important, it is not a means to an end, it is a very careful very long term effort to fix several very large problems, that affect a LOT of things, in a global way, by literally making an entirely new solution, that doesn' rely on existing parts to function, and yet works within the respects of existing web tech and parts, without relying on any of them as a point of failure.
This will all be under wraps until launch not because I'm worried about someone copying me (they can't- the idea is so weird they literally cannot think this way), and the entire thing will be a great fantastic surprise for all, in a fully positive way that does not hurt anything that has already been built out onto the web, or change how IT functions in any way, but what it will do is make a major splash, and not a negative disruptive one from ANYONES perspective, however "it will be fun." But the secrecy is due to two primary reasons: my own personal time constraints and steam while working and focusing, and the dilligence and respect for the life form I'm architecting here (yes software is alive when you put electricty into it and give it logic- it does have tangible anima..) and i dont believe the correct answer is AI.
I am not against AI, I just don't see how that is going to work so I will never focus any effort there. For problems other than what I am solving, sure it's a neat thing, but it is not what will drive this. Anyway, your relationship with the network is important, and it's not ready for anyone to make friends with it and play yet. (It's not ready for anyone to use it yet.) But do not worry you will be aware when it happens.
:) So you will have to be patient, but when this is all ready to go, justly know and understand I am not just launching a site. I'm re-drawing / engineering both non-quanta and qualia as they pertain to data modeling and flow (how a something on the internet [usually software or a person] interact with the internet, and their input into it.
And all in new ways .. - Which is leading to the installing of an entire network of sites, all running the same software..and all connected. I'm calling it tenatively "the future present tense web." This is going to be fun. Talk to you later, I've got stuff to think through and design over here, and I also have to do all me normal things, I do eat and sleep...and I get asked all the time if I sleep, so yes, otherwise I wouldn't be typing this. I do all the same stuff you do in that regard. :-p

cross posted to facebook, well originated at facebook.  doesn't mean i am planning on using facebook, but i needed to contact someone i didn't have a number for, so I went into messenger, and did the reset password thing and all that .

 

anyway, i wrote one post, and browsed for about 20 minutes.  I am amazed, the only thing that's changed is my perspective.

 

:)

but for the better.

 

 

ok here's what I posted over there yonder.

 

---------------

Friends
 
 
Howdy Doodle Do! ~ // I'm not "back" but I'm not deleting my account again (at least as far as I can tell.) //
//Hope you are all well, and busily enjoying or trying to - your lives.//
Since I've been gone, (in the 2 months), five of you have tried to see where I was, or how I was, or even made any effort to contact me.
Granted, the experiment was not to contact that many of you, and see what happened.
If this was actual experimental design, there would be controls, and more variables. but it wasn't. I'm justly surprised though, I thought my count here was around 1,667 people, and engagement pretty consistent and "always trying to add value" a smile, info, etc. -
BUT.. here's my share for right now for you:
I had many interesting thoughts in the past two months, but this stuck out:
---If 5 people contacted me out of 1667, then it's safe to say a large percentage of these people while they're talking to you and interacting with you, it's only because they are "on the platform" or "its easy" or "they are already there" or "they just popped up" etc....
Of course, this is not always the situation, but that dynamic is likely relevant in your friends list as well, to a large degree.
Look into it, think about it. Much love, and hope you're doing well.
I'm crossposting this to mytribes.net (which is my facebook clone) and works pretty damn well now, but i am not actually trying to still get you to come use it. I'm not fond of trying to make horses drink water, I'd rather just tell them a few times it's there and they can find it. (so, in this case, mytribes.net is the water.) ha !
Make it a beautiful day / evening / etc
and if you are more old fashioned, and prefer the phone,
and you're on the list of people I trust, I have a landline now,
you can ask about it if you are so inclined to wish to use it.
That is all.
Oh, and enchiladas.
Always,
~O or R (depending), but always O, sometimes R. (lmfao.)

marketing folks - nothing new but take note:

branding a logo with a common symbol or universally known letter,
and obfuscating it just enough that it's hard to initially recognize,

then- pairing it with the associated text it abbreviates, and sticking to integrating
the second character into the first character - forces the brain to recall and store-

-the first character long enough to remember it is associated with the second one,
and long enough to see the word under it, and then after some time with any amount of,
repeated exposure -

the brand becomes a logos - it becomes a living representation of the brand, out there in the world, for real-

the icon becomes quite literally, alive in the minds of the people,

who have been exposed to it.. even if they didn't like it.

:)


... ! yeah. ::blink:: whoa right? okay, so-


think about companies you don't like logos without trying? drawing blanks?
think about a few companies you really like- the logo should come to mind instantly.

(which was easier)? which was pleasurable? what process did you go through emotionally,

trying to think about logos you didn't like the companies actions whom that logo is associated?


Anything interesting come up? Did anyone actually try the two question self assessment? :-)


there's more to all this, but I wanted to document and share my realization, and it is safely stored now in multiple places, and in my head too.

But. short version -


there is a lot more to all this, (there has to be)

and i don't know what that is yet , but -

we build sometimes a brick at a time..


This is today's marketing discovery. :)


love,
Omar

the world had generally in the sense of it, gone mad, and every one of its inhabitants, for some reason- decided to keep playing, because enough time had gone by gene--er-rationally nobody knew what to do, and not many knew how to fix this, and those who did realised that it wasn't fixable with bringing the rest of everyone along with , were sad about it for some time, then re-grouped and , and kept quiet. 

eventually, good things happened.  but that story has been written already, it just need be experienced. .

 

this post is the equivalent of a yogi talking to the winds....

friend feed was a neat idea.  but they did only part of what i was hoping it could do.   rss is fucking incredible and works very well.  we have an overage of data and a lack of understanding and lack of options furthermore for creating an accurate---- and customised feed in the social space.

 

site:

 

will use stdin/out or a sql db and same,  to store rss lists of friends or sites on the web that are rss compatible,

 

you build

you read you happy

you share you post you feed is seen

you got list of feeds and some are site members (friends) some are elsewhere offsite

 

why the pull?

its honest its simple and honestly i dont know why else yet.

I don't believe man can create a version of his own customized news-paper much better than RSS.

really, beautiful technology.  and it still works flawlessly and exactly how it did when it was first polished.

Law - "a patch" on reality held in affect by synthetic force or habituation, (usually installed without announcement) , of a group by either utility or intentional design of a self-referencing aspect of qualia or quanta as observed in the functional dynamics and day to day lives of said group, and as executed by a highly methodical and extremely logical, regimented iterative process appearing to have all control and dictate and omnipotently be aware of "all possibilities" of any given situation with a temporal faux-hyperbola in this described arrangement.

as dictated by the taking of residence in the fulcrum of the hyperbola and controlling the ratios to alter social-global perception by the use of laws and ideologies as published and described as "entertainment." 

this is only hard until you start to see it, then it's so self-evident you must bound time spent observing it consciously lest you destroy yourself.. 

also, basically we are talking about assuming the role of the generator of all reality, as observed through two eyes, ears, a nose etc. 

Back to the main point, law is a functional and ideological constructed semantic mesh of logic and reason, but underlying as fully unified modulo are the motivations and directives to control the acquisition or distribution of power, electricity, or inner health electricity. 

Moving on through the sequence,

This is functional language, and the description will change later depending on who is to understand it.  Right now, I'm just spitting out a note about something that I feel is important to re-frame, and moving onto whatever else I was doing, if you don't understand this don't complain about it hehe just ask or figure it out .

 

 

i really dont need to say that next sentence, and its due to a pattern i'd been always getting on facebook as a member.   the context and or content and or ideologies and paradigms i generally exist under are so much different than most i talk, i end up having to explain something, and its not been fun.  or i was attacked, but i dont care about that, its just an adverse self reaction to really being upset they didnt understand me. 

psychology online casually in most cases is dangerous, as we are entering into a new world of "suupposed and proported" responsibility online-  which is interesting because really you should be responsibile for what you post in general nayway, but for the permanent or semi permanent custodianship and chain of ownership for something said online.   which -  is clearly un natural as a proposition from the get go, and disregards things like time or even the falsity of the currently understood "time" , and many other variables of tremendous import barring even having to consider the situation in the first place,

 

but mainly- the big danger is this as society leaves all this data online and it gets easier to do so and look it up: (trust me search engines are better theres just more info and people need to learn how to search with operators to assist (like &, +, (), and stuff like that.  it matters.)  

the main point is it is dangerous to talk about stuff like that psychology in this case, online as some people who have a tendency to worry or self diagnose may read your story and freak themselves out, and take actions that are totally destructive .  which of course is entirely their fault.

 

but the posturing of all the "new laws" surrounding talking, and the internet, basically very very poorly attempt to re-create the conditional dynamics of a piece of written note, a printed document, or any piece of communication with info about a thing person place etc on it, and or a conversation between two people.   you cannot duplicate that exchange - and have it "live on" as a law, which says "a person is always responsible legally for everything they say on the internet."  "oh and by the way we're watching some people and wont say who, so behave" -  is not one that follows in accordance with natural law of physics, or any agglomerated 3-dimensional object with mass and density.  

 

This is likely going to be cleaned up and expanded later, this is an important thing to write about.

Now back to picking a domain for my news desk (daily blog) site, that doesn't make me sound like a flashy fleeting thing or an asshole.

:-)

 

I'll discuss the project further, but effectively it is a blog, and i am writing the software myself from scratch, because i want to authentically own the entire process, so i can learn what it looks like to work in those programming languages.

Reposted Omar A's discussion.

 

Does anyone want to use this website?

No, it's not dying, but please just read this, it's brief- thanks!    :-)

I'm not putting any eggs into this basket, or dedicating any more time to this project-

BUT -

(a) - Mytribes is not going away.

(b) - There is any reason to put any more energy into this site.

(c)- Does someone want to help? Open to ideas and changes.

(d)- Always leave room for option d.

There are a lot of things i get ideas about constantly, and this was one of them.  I feel though me and this project are presently at a logical lull point, or stasis- but not a logical end point.  I learned things, some of this code sucks, and I will make my own next instead of deal with those limitations any further, in regard to further improving the website you are reading this on.  

Unless there is anyone wanting to work with this code-base, and respect the existing project enough not to explode it, let me know if you want to make it do things, and know roughly how.  It's php, mysql, java script, ajax, a bit of plugin foo, html, and css.  12 core intel box with 24 threads and a 2tb ssd..  16 gigs of ram, and running ubuntu linux on a very custom bunch of scripts, lol with apache-2x .....oh and as long as your not into privilege escalation or doing anything patently illegal, you can ......>>>   (2) have full shell in the project account and a personal dir based one, and you can register a domain for it, and then host something out of it, as a vhosted apache script, or just ask and i'll host your site as long as it's not commercial, if it is i'll charge you something very fair to host it, and we'll play it together by ear.  but just in general if you want to work with me dont be a dick and listen, my ideas are strange but they all have decent reasons but it doesnt mean i'm right and i am definitely open to hearing other ideas unless i am holding tools and cutting something, for example.  Ha.. so bearing that in mind, if you like work that feels like discussion and play then let me know oho and you can keep the shell after too.

So, the above paragraph is written in geek, so if you started in on that hopefully you understood, or skipped to this point here with the remaining non technical tid-bits of this post following this sentence.. 

Well, the most notice-able thing off all, and perhaps my biggest surprise, is nobody wants to use this website, or if they do, they're not.  and I don't want you to tell me you planned on it but then life happened - there is not a reason to excuse yourself, I had zero expectations of you, dear reader.   But I did hope that you would find this website, and once you made an account, you'd make some kind of attempt at regular use.  I cannot say what effort was put in, by the over 300 people who have made an account, but if you look at the results, I can say the only people I can remember posting more than once are the following:

Lilli Lovecraft , Gary Warmerdam , Rin Rin , , Amitesh Kumar , Aneta Haberle , Anthony Dinh , Albert Hofmann  , David Berman , Eric Meeks , Erika Todden Cooper Fabian Dupuis , Ginger  , Greg Carter , Holistic Hempire , Horatio Lyons , Irina Ondusko , Matt Murtaugh, mediaonefx James Zandreiatti Jimmy Mac Kamikaze Kelly Kathryn Niflis Johnson Kevin Lee Ladyfingers.fb nigel r mitchell pyrokitten Reía | Hazel & Sage | Roaming Gnome Shamieonjaime Sine nomine Sheri Marie satmeher Teresa Stansfield Tarantilia Ultra Healers Virginia Martin Wanderer Yeti zman Zanya 

(if i forgot anyone, my apologies, those of you who tried it, you tried it- thats groovy and i sincerely appreciate that.  it's more than the other 300 of the people who came and signed up did.   )   you're bold.   the rest of you, and those of you who are on this list but dont post here, i assume and hope you are in good health, and have zero present need to speak to me, but retain some method of contact if you consider us to be on mutually good terms.  :-)

[ what i've been doing with my time: remind me to expand this section if i dont.   healing, eating, working on about 10 different new projects, oh and if you didnt catch it, you can contact me at 1-833-780-2200....  :D  ] and i will be happy to hear from you and catch some of your on goings, and I'll update you on some new stuff over here that's pretty neato.  :)  ]

 

..............so then there's the elephant in the room, nobody uses this site. (the elephant is the bold paragraph, not the paragraph following it enclosed in brackets.  [ paragraph inside brackets, if you dont know what a bracket is.]    <---    So, that being said,

 

It is hard not to notice that, and some of these features are subscription based, and I am going to not renew those features at the end of that trial period.  So we have probably about one month on some of those, and two on another few, and perhaps a few more but not more than 3 to 5, and then this website is probably going to look like wet horse tail, because i am not going to pay for something nobody uses.   :-)  Not a sucker here.  Moving along..  This is your polite advanced warning that while this website isnt going anywhere, or your data, there may be certain features missing, like - this theme -  because you pay for it.  after some time.   

Changing the subject, of course this would be different if even one person had made or attempted to make a solid commitment to using this as some kind of platform for self or for starting a business idea, or to augment an existing business.  It had been set up for that, I don't think anyone noticed that you can sell things here, run video conferences, privately share files of any extension, market an album and sell it here in the store, sell your used clothes, post an ad for a personal, write a blog post about your views on the pandemic, write a personal piece once a week summarizing your previous week of life, but do it for yourself, and it just happens to be public,  or if you are bashful, or private, mark it "me only" in the visibility settings...

 

The point is, there is so much shit this website does, but without anyone using it, i'm done dude.  got other stuff to create and this is not anything i'm going to work on further unless as aforementioned someone comes in and acts as a wild catalyst, then we can change all that and the whole thing is back on the table.

Anywho-

Additionally, if you had not figured out by now how to get a hold of me, and somehow think this action makes it harder to contact me, stop being a moron and write down my phone number and email address from the following website:   www.ideamissing.com  

Then feel free to call or email me when-ever you'd like, as long as you have a point in doing so, and don't just want me to listen to your voice. 

 I turn my phone and email and laptop off when I sleep, so if you've got an idea, give it a try, the worst that can happen is you end up leaving a voice message.  

Please don't be that idiot that relies on people checking call logs for me to call you back either, I hate those people.  Just tell me something, tell me who it is that's talking, and tell me how to get back to you, otherwise don't bother ;-)

 

 

here's to hoping that you create and generate for yourself and those around you,

....a wonderful day, and week, and hopefully whatever-the-fuck you're working on or trying to do is thusly made enjoyable by you.

-with love, as always,

lest nobody forget:  the un-observed variables "of life" have an affect, just as do that of the observed ones, they are of equal import in any situation or dynamic, or potential one which hasn't been agglomerated yet to 3-d format...  These are just as much a part of the fabric of the situation as the observable phenomena, even if you did not intend for the un-observed forces, gravity, air, di-magnetic waves, or etc -  it's all there-  and they contribute equally to the story, just as much as the kinematic force from your arm throwing the rock into the pond, and all that fun stuff you got distracted on with looking at ripples in the water, and forgetting entirely about the biochemical reactions that were (1) in process already when you arrived, then inside your body to throw the rock, all the permutated possibilities of you imagining or not)( , of the rocks effect, the environments reaction to you imagining this, and so on fractalizing into infinity.  but its all there, we just dont usually observe with that level of filtration on our information as the life unfolds.    We usually keep it simpler, but this is how the brain works, it likes to reduce functions, just like a programmer knows minified code works easier.
