if you took the bio lines and the twitter descriptions of these dudes you're going to find a lot of interesting words like that

to my shame I think I have a social network profile somewhere that probably still says "flâneur." urgh

three weeks pass...

The Yankees have numerous rivals. The Red Sox (division). The Mets (cross-town). The Dodgers (11 World Series matchups). But these Yankees — this particular squad — have a bigger rival. Father Time.

Father Time??? r u srs

Time’s effects, even against Rivera — the most graceful and elegant ballplayer I’ve ever seen, the closest thing in sports to an ageless wonder — are ignominious. The Yankees often win, but in the end, time always wins — the one opponent against which even the Yankees will forever be underdogs. To struggle against time is to struggle against the inevitable. We all know you can’t beat time, but the joy of these aging Yankees is that sometimes you can get lucky and race ahead of it for a while. But now this.

What the fuck, what is the point of this, why not just post that insipid poem about the One Great Scorer

man this ipad memo stuff is wearing thin. Even that link he posted, the guy finished the book on a Mac. Yes you can do bits of creation of the iPad. But Macs are way better at most of it. And that should be OK. iBooks: on iPad. iBooks Author: on Mac.

Man that was a lot of words to get across "I think I am worth literally twice as much per year than even John Gruber ever thought he was worth for his RSS feed"

NB Gruber now easily makes six figures across his various channels, seems to have no qualms about it.
