Myopes of the world, unite
Who said that?
Is that you over there in the red?
Where the hell are my glasses?
And I just spent 3 hours watching the new Sherlock and still no one has said that :(
Ooo that's meta lurking there - love it
which appears IMHO to require a degree of practice
Which is another way of saying most of us have been total asshats ourselves online and have (slowly) learned how to avoid asshatary and actually say something useful - which this isn't - so - it being hometime and all...
derailing into whimsy
It is so much more fun to be whimsical than to be angry.
I’m sure it all serves some wonderful purpose
My conference experience is that what is said in the sessions is mostly irrelevant, the value is bumping into people who are interested in the same things that you are interested in and then getting drunk with them. That leads to collaborations that create worthwhile things.
Which raises the question "why have sessions where people speak?" instead you could have a conference that consisted of eating and drinking together and get just as much value.

You never feel guilty about the cost to the country’s production you cause?:)
I read this while I'm reading and/or writing. It's the break that allows me to relax and then think better when I get back to "work".
Way more folk read than comment
You know it would be nice to have more of them join in.
I have said that one of the things I most value about this community is the diversity of voices. I'd love to see more of them - providing they don't post about Wham :P.
