    hi all,

    here is a coolio link that enjoyed reading and just thought that i would share:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/6962242.stm

    it talks about impulses to fight or flee during times of threat. i feel like my instincts are permanently set on flee.

    but looking at it form another side we are just lazy.

    this new drug sounds amazing, but i hope that it will always be properly regulated. or else, things can get out of hand.

    it seems like we are discovering new things everyday. that innovations are moving everything forward, or upward. technology, medicine, science. it's all going up. but when i get into an argument, i know deep down that i am just as confused as the very first being capable of communication and thought. even though each evolutionary step has as played this role that has been played more than ten thousand times before, i feel like they have learned nothing and that they will continue to learn nothing. in a line graph, technology, medicine, science and the lot would all have an upward trend. but this matter would be flat and i feel like it will always be. i guess i'll call it the MONOTONOUS LINE, or maybe THE UNCHANGED MELODY (which sounds more poetic. awesome!) and it is a fool's errand to try break it's routine. every form of man will hand this luggage to the next until our demise.

    affordance mining is recycling in a sense. "the process of researching (usually hardware) technology, such as the keyboard, touchscreen, traffic lights, etc., to determine their underutilized actionable properties and developing methods of leveraging those properties into innovative forms of interaction between the actor and the technology. affordance mining could also be considered a type of hacking. but rather than subverting a technology's designed intent by exploiting its weaknesses the emphasis is on discovering and inventing new interaction models with a technology." let's remove the roof over the definition. the process of researching anything to determine it's underutilized properties and developing methods of leveraging those properties into innovative forms. affordance mining could also be considered a type of hacking.
