sorry, in portuguese… I emailed that to bruna paixão & she blogged about it.
um pouco antes de viajar pra NY, eu tive um desses sonhos-revelacao em que conversava com krishna (que atendia tables de varios customers, us, e tava pretty busy).
ele falou que sim, a realidade eh feita de nossos desejos. e temos problemas pq nossos desejos batem de frente um com outro, e fica dificil descrever o prato pro cozinheiro.
falou tb que a diferenca entre criancas e adultos, eh que pra criancas, os overlapping desires sao esquecidos, pra adultos nao. tipo, cafe-com-leite, coitados.
BTW, i wanna be invisible an do outrageous things. i wanna be an international freedom fighter.(so far)
well, if it looks like a cat, it’s a catty, huh? or would it be pussy? ^_^

here at my work I’m forced to use outlook, even if on a mac. below my list of things I hate and love on it, compared with mac mail:
Things I hate in outlook:
- No bridge with address book app, it has it’s own contact book (like all microsoft apps, it doesn’t play well with others).
- the damned search only covers metadata (to, from, subject and two proprietary microsoft formats), it doesn’t scan the body of the email. just this flaw reduces my productivity in half. (searching who said what and when, for example)
Things I love in outlook:
- right preview pane, makes the layout how it should be: group, subgroup (titles), message.
- write a message, command+enter and a reassuring swoosh tells you the message was sent.
my mourning technique has been frantically visiting forums to read their opinions about the reelection… some quotes below (and above).
Dan Gillmor’s eJournal: “The latest word on climate change is that with the uncovering of sequestered carbon in the arctic by melting ice sheets, the rate of climate change will increase, not decrease. There’s a positive feedback loop in place now, and it will take even more to counteract it. Without added forests, greenbelts, and estuaries, there won’t be adequate photosynthetic activity to counteract the increased burning of fossil fuels. We could see 20 foot rises in ocean level in 50 years. Dan could be going to his office in San Jose by boat.
Ask yourself this: Why has the Bush administration fired scientists who won’t write biased papers to support the administrations pro-industry agenda? Why have lobbyists for energy and chemical companies been put in charge of our environmental protection, our public lands, especially our parks and precious remaining wilderness areas?
A: The large corporations, who owe no aliegance to any particular people of the world, are perfectly willing to corrupt the political system to boost their short-term profits, with no regard for our long-term welfare. You don’t have to work for any multi-national corporation for very long to see how that happens.
Perhaps the religeous right foolishly believe that god will take their faithful to heaven in the next four years, leaving the rest of us rot in a planet increasingly like Venus. It appears that their blissful ignorance, their reliance on one ancient book as the source of all truth, has made them sheep, lead by myopic executives with only quarterly profits in mind. They’ve blissfully carried us closer to our own destruction.
What we really need in technology policy is the principle that no costs be externalized. Companies and individuals must be responsible for the polution they create, the resources they extract, the health risks they cause. Tech policy should be based on true capitalism where products and services actually have to include the costs to the commons, not government subsidies to extractive and environmentally exploitive industries.”
