    @peterme But it is annoying. (I had to Google Pengo!)

    Hot Butter's 'Popcorn' is 133 BPM. That'll be popping up at the gym sometime then.

    @engineeringdept I'll just get through the H's.

    Just a quiet night in, tapping out BPM values to tracks in iTunes. Let me know if you need any tapping done. I'm pretty good. Tap tap tap.

    @Preoccupations I know. It’s like when Tea Partiers call Obama “socialist”. Amazing lack of perspective / self-awareness.

    @alsothings Being more socialist than Silicon Valley doesn’t really make somewhere socialist :)

    Why not “disrupt” the norm and start a steadily-growing, long-lasting, profit-making business? Kerayzee talk!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    For people who are all about “disruption” and “innovation”, Silicon Valley-apologists sure like to stick with one way of doing business.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    The continuing idea that Silicon Valley-style business is the one true way, that everywhere in the world should be aiming for. No, bye.

    People commenting on an article about London not being Silicon Valley enough, describing UK as quite “socialist”. Ha ha, nutters.

    I might disrupt my dinner this evening. It’ll be just like Silicon Valley. I might have seconds too, and call it a “growth hack”.

    @bobbie @holgate @mildlydiverting @blech That’s why I like it - I can write without formatting but (most of) the formatting just happens.

    @Beeker @irvinebrown @garau …places where everyone sings along to music of their youth. Goth homes. Indie homes. Rave homes. etc.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @Beeker @irvinebrown @garau I do wonder how more fragmented popular culture now will affect these places in future. Harder to have generic…

    @holgate @bobbie @blech Why not? I use it whenever I can. Maybe I just spend too much of my life writing HTML already.

    I find it ironic that the National Portrait Gallery is actually wider than it is tall.
