Social Experiment

It looks like I got my hypothesis down to a point where it is stated properly. The next step is to carry out the experiment which will take 24 to 48 months. During that time, I will be posting actively in newsgroups trying to solicit feedback from the population. With the hope of gathering statistical information needed to produce a set of charts. Well, you ask what the social experiment is? I'll write about the details later as I move along the programmed path.

Another interesting task is to go to where tech heads (wireless/mobile) gather and socialize with them. The objective is to gather information as much as possible.

Volleyball Team

Decided to add one more player who I think will do a lot of damage. His ordnance looked pretty good, hitting at a high point with a steep angle. Pretty impressive, definitely a good player that can deliver the payload. It's going to be really interesting to see him play this coming Sunday.


One team organizer emailed me asking if he can merge with the team. They recently disbanded after having some misunderstandings. Quite common for volunteer based groups who vote with their feet. He is proposing a new team be formed to play in the Portland League which will start in April.

Bad Medicine

I was surprised to read the poorly structured polemic against Gnome. Reminding me of the saying when dark clouds hang above: Bad Medicine [2]. It gave me the impression that something is wrong in the volunteer based group. Internal strife is an indication of the coming dissolution, though. Not very good for the group/club as volunteers normally vote with their code and feet. Perhaps it is now time to use the broom? Kick some booties if you may?
