  36. Re: believe in yourself. Steve: "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Steve_Jobs I'd agree with that with one caveat: sharpen and practice your inner skeptic, use it to double-check your heart and intuition, as they can be tricked by dogmas both old and new.

  44. many differences at #schemaorg workshop, but some common ground to build on: 1. simplicity of mental model is important, 2. rough consensus that we should support multiple syntaxes - co-evolution and sharing of ideas has informed and mutually improved microformats/microdata/RDFa, 3. multiple types on objects are useful/important, 4. everyone wants to innovate as efficiently as they can, so let's openly share and incorporate brainstorm proposals.

  80. Nothing fancy, just a few audio tracks picked out for @dConstruct 2011

    Last Friday I had the chance to attend the 2011 dConstruct conference in Brighton. I really enjoyed the talks this year, even some of the more experimental bits. There were some rough parts, and yet I found every speaker inspiring in a different way.

    Did you notice the music? Hopefully not, as like a good interface it should have been a seamless part of your dConstruct experience. However if you did notice it, or you're curious about it, read on.

    I'd arrived a few days before, and the day before the talks, Jeremy asked me to pick out a few pod-safe (e.g. Creative Commons licensed) tracks to play during the breaks, in between talks, and at lunch time. Nothing bounce-bounce beep blip bloop he said. I was searching with Google, then Creative Commons's various directory, search, blog, and community resources to little success (though I did find the excellent Asterisk hold music) when Emil suggested that I just try browsing/searching SoundCloud. Aside from apparently needing Flash to listen to the music, that did the trick.

    Without further ado, here are for your browsing and few-click downloading (no way to link directly to CC MP3s on Soundcloud) enjoyment is the background soundtrack for dConstruct 2011:

    If anyone knows of a FFFFound for uploading of Creative Commons SSSSound, I can upload them and make a podcast (as suggested to Matt Ogle as a simple and useful project/hack for the Institute For the Future of Music). Otherwise go through the above links, do the necessary 3-4 clicks to go to the track, click download, hover to the download link, click, etc., and enjoy some nice background music.
