Re: harvey weinstein

^ Aum and DarkOne make me think of whether this will trickle down. Harassment goes unpunished in many contexts and most of the time, and it may take time to see the "trickle down" into organizations and regular policies. How does the gossip-y reporting get there? Well, people in each of these organi...

Re: harvey weinstein

I'm paying attention to the number of stories but not all of the individual details, if that makes sense. And I'm paying attention to - and cheering on - the consequences. This. I'm surprised that there are actually consequences against the men who misused their positions. Similar claims - or rumor...

Re: are you good at billiards?

My grandparents have a billiards table. So I know how to shoot forward and behind my back, I can land many conventional shots, and play a decent geometric game.

I'll lose to someone who is in practice, but I'll beat people in casual games.

Re: when did you last use a microphone?

I use one at least biweekly for a meeting.

By the way, will there at some point be a division between microphone as a vocal amplifier (like a concert or event mic) and microphone as a digital audio recorder in a computer or phone?

Re: what's the last movie you saw?

I saw The Bad News Bears (1976). :4houses: In a sentence, a terrible little league baseball team battles the odds, other kids, and its wash-out coach during a little league season. It is a well-made, irreverently funny film. It doesn't over-tip its hand with unnecessary expository. Early on, it's ea...

Re: Girl Of My Dreams
