Misgivings

If you’re not having any second thoughts at all, it’s probably because you’re not thinking it through enough. The hallmark of the true believer is that there’s no room for judgment. For everyone else, misgivings are a sign that you’re carefully considering the problem at hand.

Seth Godin: Legal Bloggers Should Be Seeking the Minimum Viable Audience

At Clio Con (Clio’s Cloud Nine annual conference) a couple weeks ago, Seth Godin advised lawyers that they should be seeking the minimum viable audience in their business development efforts. Godin has made blogging a lynchpin in growing his name and reputation as a speaker and author. His almost twenty years of blogging on Seth’s Blog, a blog publication, separate and apart from his website, has made him a household name in the marketing field. Godin’s Clio discussion may as well have...

IMSI-Catchers from Canada

Gizmodo is reporting that Harris Corp. is no longer selling Stingray IMSI-catchers (and, presumably, its follow-on models Hailstorm and Crossbow) to local governments: L3Harris Technologies, formerly known as the Harris Corporation, notified police agencies last year that it planned to discontinue sales of its surveillance boxes at the local level, according to government records. Additionally, the company would no longer offer access to software upgrades or replacement parts, effectively slappi...

2 LA County supervisors to explore possibility of removing sheriff

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is set on Tuesday, Oct. 27, to consider how it might try to oust Sheriff Alex Villanueva from his post before voters have a chance to do so in 2022. Supervisors Mark Ridley-Thomas and Sheila Kuehl have recommended that the board round up its lawyers, inspector general, civilian oversight commissioners and acting CEO to look at options for removing or impeaching the sheriff. “Under the current sheriff, hard-fought vital progress is being undone, and com...

Cricket in Many Accents.

Trevor Joyce sent Samir Chopra’s The Allrounder essay “Linguistic Lenses” to me in 2014; it’s so old the link has rotted and I have to provide an archived one, but dammit, it’s still a good piece and I’m posting it! I heard cricket in many accents. In Indian English, the language of the cities and metropolis: the clipped middle-class intonations of All India Radio commentators like Ashish Ray and Narottam Puri, the dry drawl of the Nawab of Pataudi, the slight lilt of Dicky Rutnagur. There was t...

Keep Moving Forward

A hard fact to accept in the presentation space is that bad presentations happen to good speakers. Success is never guaranteed. The only way to fully own your mistakes is to keep moving forward.

Morning Docket: 10.26.20

* Johnny Depp's lawyer has been reportedly thrown off a defamation case for revealing information covered by a protective order. Maybe the information was "pirated" or the judge should make the attorney "walk the plank"... [Courthouse News Service] * A lawyer for the Lincoln Project told Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to "peddle their scare tactics elsewhere" after the couple threatened to sue the anti-Trump group over billboards in New York City.

Popular vs. good

They’re not the same. We often strive to have both, but that’s unlikely. The price of having one almost certainly involves losing the other.  We often end up compromising something to get both and fail. Better to have one than neither.

Finding and Fixing Our Gardens’ Many Flaws. Now Is the Time!

Right now, here in fall, this is when all the many flaws in my garden a re on gl orious, full on, full frontal display. Proudly, they flaunt themselves, mocking me to every carload of judgmental suburbanites that drives by, the pilots and passengers who fly over my house, and the hordes of bike path walkers across the street who glance my way, make remarks to one another, and snicker. So the other day, it hit me like a brick. Yes, it’s been a long season. Sure, I’m tired. Indeed, I’m pretty darn...

Chinese Prose Rhetoric.

You can read Christoph Harbsmeier’s “The Rhetoric of Premodern Chinese Prose Style” in a draft version (pdf) or in its final form as a chapter in Victor Mair (ed.), Columbia History of Chinese Literature (Academia.edu); either way, it’s a very interesting take on an ancient tradition, with suggestive comparisons to the classical West. Some excerpts: Confucius maintained that when words get their message across, one should stop (Analects 15.41). What was admired in Confucius was his flair for we...

Atelier by Abimis is a Feast of a Kitchen

Atelier by Abimis is a bespoke kitchen concept that starts with a durable, hygienic, recyclable, and long-lived core of stainless steel. As seen in this custom kitchen in Este (near Padua in Northern Italy), the system offers High Modern style with excellent functionality—and a great degree of user choice built in. The heart of the kitchen is here expressed with the linear work surface/cooktop —that seems to go on for miles in a gorgeous expanse of glimmering stainless. ...

California’s Where’s My Ballot? app is down for the count

Without having any idea whether it works — California government doesn’t do tech well — I have been fascinated by the idea, at least, of the state’s much-touted Where’s My Ballot? app for this election season. I mean, when it comes to some trinket that I have ordered online, I am bombarded by offers to track its progress at every  turn. I can see when it was shipped, and when it got on the plane, buckled up and had a midflight martini and microwaved chicken lunch. I can follow as it lolls about ...

The thing about sunk costs

Tomorrow is another opportunity. There are thirty people over there who are just waiting for you to help connect them, lead them or make things better.

Customers, partners, clients and students who need your voice or your product aren’t going to benefit from it because you’re working so hard to dig yourself out of a previous hole, a situation that is now harder than eve...

The Madman’s Library.

Alison Flood at the Graun provides extracts from The Madman’s Library by Edward Brooke-Hitching; they’re all pretty amazing (The Triangular Book of Count St Germain is “an encoded French occult work which boasts the secret to extending life”; Pátria Amada by Vinicius Leôncio is a 7.5-ton compendium of every Brazilian tax code in one volume), but I particularly commend to your attention these: Book 17th of Notes – Travels in 1818 by Constantine Samuel Rafinesque (1818) In 1818, the French natur...

“Identity Thieves on the Rampage” – a Statement by Wole Soyinka

Undoubtedly in order to promote the video clip of an ethnic revanchist calling on Igbo to leave Yorùbá land, this same lunatic fringe has exhumed, and embarked on circulating an ancient fabrication – several years mouldering in the grave – once attributed to me and vigorously denounced.  That statement impudently expounds, as my utterance, what […]

Big business vs. small business

Small companies create almost all the jobs. They are the insurgents, the agents of change. Big companies are a backbone, reliable providers of goods and services. Big companies operate at a scale that most of us can’t even imagine. The two points of view often conflict. And each can learn from the other. Net neutrality is an argument between freedom of innovation by small business vs. control from big business. Campaign finance reform is an argument against big companies and their leaders buying...

What is Cyclelicious about?

Hi, remember me, your long-absent bike blogger? Since I’m going well over a year between posts now, I should create a table of contents of sorts to help people navigate this website. My views have evolved over the years and you’ll see this evolution if you scour the archives. Today, I’m driven by the fact that human-caused climate change driven largely by fossil carbon emissions will create hardship and tragedy for a large chunk of the human population. Secondary to this are other problem...
