  • Speaker: The purpose of science and its limits,

    Gene genie…
    Communication and information are at the heart of all processes, whether it is the code of language, or the code of chemistry and physics – we, and all that surrounds us, are byproducts of those interactions, not the other way round, as human hubris often insists.

    You (we) have quite the battle ahead, but don’t ever give it up, even just one changed / illuminated mind is worth it…

    I am currently enjoying reading Philip Ball’s Stories of the invisible a guided tour to molecules – it puts things in perspective…

    9.21, is that the time!?
    I’d best go put some energy into colony that allows ‘me’ to exist…
    aka breakfast!

  • Hard News: To be expected,

    Jeez, Espiner is being a complete oik this morning

    He seems to think we might care more about what he thinks his interviewees think, than letting them tell us themselves …

    He needs to get out of his own way,
    rather than constantly hunting the ‘soundbite’ he wants…

    …or maybe they need to decide who is the good cop and who is the bad cop – him and Suzie Ferguson seem to be both posturing as the ‘bad ass’ interviewer…

    It is very tiresome…

  • Hard News: Gower Speaks,

    back to the future...

    ...the recent Simon Bridges and Victoria Forest Park thing,

    Not to mention that apparently Bridges has returned from an alternate reality where Russel Norman has been a Minister in Government!

    Just how much time does he spend there?

    Philip K Dick eat yer heart out...

  • Capture: Getting closer, in reply to Chris Waugh,

    lousey vampires!

    its antennae and legs look like they’re printed into the concrete

    I imagine that at that scale, the distance between them and the concrete would be negligible and so they are forced into the same focal plane...

    ...but who knew they didn't cast shadows!

  • Hard News: To be expected, in reply to George Darroch,

    And the narrative...

    ...is what you get
    when you put the 'rrat'*
    amongst the 'naive'
    needs, must...
    telling times a'comin'


    *from Southland
    obviously!

  • Hard News: To be expected,

    Mourning Report?
    Espiner is a complete fail as an interviewer to be trusted, I heard him ambush someone else the other day - ya have to wonder if he is trying to kill Morning Report's credibility with both interviewees and listeners...

    Sadly conjecture gussied up as 'fact' seems to be the new norm in mass media.

    As an aside:
    Cunliffe's bleating about his not getting as much camera time with the royals as the actual Prime Minister, John Key, was way wrongfooted - best to have said nothing than look petty and churlish.

    Less is more...
