Couldn't sleep... had to get this persistent (and rather bleak) musing out of my head. Anyone think it was worthwhile? https://davelane.nz/mightnight-musing-history-repeats-only-time-its-digital
For the record, I desperately hope I'm wrong.
@lightweight Me too, but the parallels are strong now that you point them out...
@cstanhope :( Yes, I thought so too.
@cstanhope I'm out of bed again, making a few edits that occurred to me after I lay down again...
@lightweight Hopefully you'll be able to get back to sleep after that.
@cstanhope sadly, I'm not feeling overly comforted, but at least it's captured in a persistent(ish) medium... we'll see :)
@cstanhope feeling a strange urge to re-watch the Life of Brian...
@lightweight Never a bad thing to do, I think. :)
@cstanhope could Trump be the Grand Inquisitor?
@lightweight Dave, I read your post and it was masterful, wonderful and such a fresh perspective. I think another aspect of the Marketers is that they have convinced us that history is unimportant. Thank you.
(FYI I wanted to leave you a longer, more thoughtful comment on the blog post, but the disquus and i-an-not-a-robot hoops eventually trapped me into a rabbit hole without return: “can’t access reCaptcha database check your connection...” To life?) Anyways great blog post.
@lightweight thanks for the quick response and hope my comment about disquus did not take away from my point, that is that your late-night post was a gem. Thank you.
@GeoffreyGevalt nope, no offence taken - that's useful feedback re Disqus, increasing my priority on replacing it...
