@rsafian Nice to see you tonight, wish it had been under different circumstances.@JohnFugelsang that's my mother's theory too. It has legs.@mat @1bobcohn @tanehisicoates same experience with the ads but I also persevered.

"The creative adult is the child who has survived," by Ursula K. LeGuin, is the mantra of the Imagination Age.@jrhusney @mikearauz I love that. But what does it mean? If you haven't made a decision, just decide not to engage further with the thing?Happy birthday, @jack!!!@lilitmarcus I found myself always trying to sit with my back to the windows so I didn't have to see it all day every time I'm there.@lilitmarcus I wonder how people working there will feel. I have a client in Seven World Trade, and the 9/11 memorial is constantly visible.@sgentiluomo wonderful to see you! I was so happy to be there tonight and Paola was mesmerizing and brilliant.There's a reason why the NYC taxicab industry ended up being regulated, and history does repeat itself: http://t.co/4atFJQ2sco

@hodgman I speak for one million humans when I say we hotly anticipate the world vision you will now announce. Like tonight or soonish?@pmarca I'm with you on regulatory competition. Fabulous job with this event..@pmarca The "imagination component" is exactly right. The Imagination Age is in full swing!@pmarca At Science House watching your 2013 Milken talk. Love your defense of @Twitter. I fully agree.I love the cast of characters in my life with code names like The Sentinal, who are ever-present, full of realness & working their magic.@kejames @livingarchitect @drlucyrogers I love that glowing tile!! Brilliant!You guys, @drlucyrogers & friends made this glass tile that lights up when the #ISS is overhead http://t.co/mtlEfYfRT0 WANT.

@katelanfoisy @Esquiring high tide on that memorial is transcendental, but I never realized until I saw it at low tide. Changed my life.@katelanfoisy that's exactly where I had my epiphany on September 5, 1999.

The right combination of pen and paper just does it for me. http://t.co/f0UrGElIsm@rachsyme dark before morn, I don't know I'm never up that early.
@Tim_OConnell I'm with you, for what it's worth! You can imagine the trouble I get in when I get my "bigger than physics" opinion on.@Tim_OConnell some would argue with that nothing transcends physics because there would be no emergent intelligence without it...@Tim_OConnell also it remains firmly in the realm of the theoretical, which, as a construct of intelligence, also transcends physics.@Tim_OConnell ToE hopes to link all *physical* aspects of the universe. Can't be understood or communicated without imagination, though.@Tim_OConnell you mean the movie or in general?Go, @flat_world! “@cetesse: 10 Hottest Technologies in Higher Education http://t.co/bfL25mOhIF"
Stardust memories Mystery Jars. http://t.co/OvQm0EEB4k@claytoncubitt Such an ignominious end. Truly.@claytoncubitt or the way the author keeps needing to assure *us* that these new realities are not upsetting?@claytoncubitt also PS. Those are exactly the reasons I thought. I mean, it's not *that* hard to figure out what's happening there.@claytoncubitt the subject matter or the way it's written? I can see a case for both.
