IN THE MAKING Verbophobia When I started using computers as a little kid, it was all-inclusive; if you were interested, you were in the club. Eventually, communities were built around things like Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) that were places for getting email, downloading files, chatting with other people, and playing games. The BBS operators wrote code and spent time designing a culture for their systems or communities. In the Northern California Foothills, we had what we called an MUPT meeting once a month. At our Modem User Pizza Thingy, we shared ideas, talked about communication, and generally were stupid, geeky nerds; and we loved it! The BBS culture carried into the Internet and, wow, that’s where things got interesting. Now, nearly 15 years have gone by and I have watched these groups of people that I deeply respect get older. It’s funny, as I was writing this post, I stumbled upon the Patton Oswalt article in Wired “Wake Up Geek Culture, Time to Die.”

Eight:48 Mixcloud blog In Honor Of Design A design and usability blog: Signal vs. Noise (by 37signals) A Word Aptly Spoken | Aspirantone's Blog A Word Aptly Spoken A Word Aptly Spoken Words are used everyday to communicate. Sometimes the words that we chose clearly communicate our thoughts. Sometimes words confuse the listener and will take on a different meaning just by the tone in which they are spoken. My intention here is not to suggest that everything we say must always be sugary and sweet. Proverbs 25: 11 states…”A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” Proverbs 15: 23 states, “A man finds joy in giving an apt reply—and how good is a timely word!” Like this: Like Loading...
