Disqus Comments Static Pages

I am creating another blog before I finish this one. Thankfully the new blog is simpler than this one, the content will be purely piped feeds from various sources regarding futuristic technology. Anyway, thinking about creating the new blog made me remember a problem I had creating this blog, at first I couldn't implement Disqus comments on the static pages. Thankfully a found someone with a solution, which is really quite simple. To make Disqus comments appear on static Blogger pages you delete <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'> and </b:if> from the Disqus section of the template/layout.

Here is my Tweet about it:

I also need to try the code below on both blogs, or at least one of them, it should in theory make any links in Disqus comments open target="_blank" (a new tab/window).

$('.dsq-comment-text a').live('mouseover', function() {
$(this).attr('target', '_blank');

1979 Vs 2013 - BIG 250MB Vs 16GB MicroSD

This Tweet said it all, until the account was deleted, it highlighted how we do more for less with each passing year. The Tweet asked: "Where are we going? #Singularity." The Tweet included the image below, which I have embedded via imgur. The picture shows a massive 250MB hard drive (1979) versus a 16GB microSD card (2013). In addition to the size difference there is a massive price difference. I have no idea what the source of the image is, I have no idea who the original author is. Below are some additional links to the image, the image has been reposted by multiple people.

Must Finish SOFF Soon

H+ have published a good article about Abundance:


It seems things are about the take-off, awareness-wise. I am noticing a significant up-tick regarding artificial intelligence and robot articles about ongoing steady breakthroughs.

The abundance (Post-Scarcity) meme is progressing well. I think when Drexler's book Radical Abundance is published in a few weeks (June is it?) then awareness could explode, we shall see. I think this year (2013) could be very big regarding shifting awareness.

I must finish SOFF soon. I have been delayed editing all the info into a compelling case.
