Keep getting this with @ShazamID: http://is.gd/dViC9.
So, @shazamid on iPad doesn’t support OAuth? That’s unfortunate. And it seemed not to “get through,” earlier.
Glad that people are waking up to the fact that there’s more to coffee life than espresso. http://is.gd/dVfuv
The word is out: JF of @caffeingamba fame will open a microroaster. w00t!
Just learnt great news about microroasting in Montreal. Our coffee scene is on the verge of something awesome!
Any info about St-Henri Micro Torréfacteur, @keatonXkeaton? #microroaster @vark @answers
Nice way to sell a book! Way to go, Shteyngart! http://is.gd/dV2gd
Nice to have access to PRI and TéléQc, Laïka and Vices

Will have to investigate more but it looks like the Pino digital kettle pro overshoots more than expected. 212 for 200.
Wondering how, in practice, Facebook Questions will differ from @vark and Quora. Better integration? http://is.gd/dTfT9
There’s a huge difference between fleeing and selecting a path away from trouble. / Les enragés m’intéressent peu.
I’m now the proud owner of a Pino Digital Kettle Pro. Expect tea experiments in the near future… ;-)
Helpful @mitchjoel post on addressing curmudgeons. Getting me to resituate them. http://is.gd/dSLse
Thinking of ways to transform the “oh, it’s just the same thing as what I’ve already learnt” into a pifanee.
Funny that, yesterday, I received messages from two people with Khmer connections. / Je connais rien du Cambodge.
Finding podcasts with radio ads rather painful. Can’t we adapt ads to media context?
Got an idea for a kind of Indie/Rock/Pop song based on Orpheus: “Go to Hell (and Please Come Back).”

Just heard some levelheaded discussion about controversial multiple-sclerosis research. On the radio! #FoJ #Zamboni
What would be the best variable-temp electric #kettle (for tea) in the 50-60$ range available in Canada? @vark @answers
So, the worried tone was editorial. Maybe the nationalism too. But the determinism is @kevin2kelly. http://is.gd/dNqxV
Where I agree with@kevin2kelly, so far: it’s not book reading. “Monolithic” books were modern, not postmodern.

(And, no, I wasn’t thinking about anyone specifically. Just about worldview differences.)
Getting a positivist to grok chaotic complex interactions is like getting an orchestra musician to do polyrhythms.
RT @CanuckLibrarian: everyone hates to be corrected. One of the reasons I don’t speak French much around ppl I know.
In #tea, how come multiple infusions may work but longer infusions produce astringency? @vark @answers

It’s so nice when, in a relationship, “meeting the other person halfway” isn’t about compromise!
@GriffinTech Is there a replacement for the SmartTalk adapter? One with a more robust plug?
Are passive voice and dangling prepositions the tritone and parallel fifths of the #writing world? @vark @answers

Among the remarkable things about @LanguageLog, the fact that they recognize insight regardless of source merits praise.
It rarely happens but I almost reproduced the enjoyment from yesterday’s lunch. / Je trippe sur le BBQ!
One thing about manual grinders is that they make you notice Charbucks-style overroasted beans. #coffee
Lawyer: “Made my case.” CEO: “Made my millions.” Bully: “Made you look.” Teacher: “Made you think.”
Was supposed to eat at a very nice resto but what I made instead was about as pleasurable. / Vive la cuisine maison!
Finished cleaning up after BBQing bone-in pork loin. Tasty and remarkably juicy. My work here is done. #accomplishment
Tried accessing an academic article on laughter in soci teaching. Journal’s embargoed 3yrs. We need Open Access. Now.
NanoStudio by @blipinteractive is impressive. Times have changed since my college years in the MIDI studio (‘89-‘91)!
