@Lafinboy Not so much Cary Grant movie: too much light, the music funkier rather than mellow But that’s convinced me it’s a cocktail next.

@jdub [smirks] Yes, the whole idea of the marketing industry calling its Next Big Thing “Marketing 2.0” is the FAIL of a corrupt industry!

@jdub Heh! I thinking numbering versions of software is OK. But <abstract concept> 2.0 is bullshit from beginning to end. Dumb buzzword.

I think that the next person who tags “2.0” or “3.0” onto ANYTHING to attempt some faux-coolness with get a bullet in the head. BE ORIGINAL!

If you need someone else to SHOW you how to speak with your own voice, then you’re so far down the sock puppet hole then… [shakes head]

@SilkCharm And if you CAN’T be yourself yourself, stop being such a slimy lizard and FOAD. The world can live without you.

I’m starting to realise not everyone is up to speed on how “frames” work in context of politics. I’d better go teach some cows to dance. ;)

@DCouch ANY framing in terms of cleanliness of any kind, +ve or -ve, reinforces govt’s frame.

@DCouch “Pure” won’t work either. Govt has already framed it as “Internet = dirty, needs filtering”. Can has completely different frame.
