    The Guardian for this meeting was Storm Nordwind. The comments are by Storm Nordwind.

    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Riddle!
    Riddle Sideways: ah good morning, my friend
    Storm Nordwind: How are you today?
    Riddle Sideways: hmmm, sleepy, cold (36F here) and well
    Riddle Sideways: howz about you
    Storm Nordwind: Sleepy and well too, though it's warm here this morning (50) with snow on the ground from earlier in the week.
    Riddle Sideways: wait awhile for it to warm up before taking recycling out
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Obsererm

    Rotten blueberries.

    Storm Nordwind: I had some blueberries in the car that we forgot about for four days... now the car needs a good deodorizing!
    Riddle Sideways: did not think blueberries would be so bad
    Riddle Sideways: spilt coffee milk is really bad
    Storm Nordwind: Me neither. But I didn't grow up with blueberries - they're a new food for me - so I had no idea how bad they could get and so quickly.
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Yak

    Rotten ideas.

    Storm Nordwind: Interesting metaphor. I wonder if I should go through my mental archives and see if anything is going rotten in there!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning the twho of you
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Yak
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hello obs
    Riddle Sideways: hmmmm, some rotten metaphors
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Riddle Sideways: could stink badly

    Rotting screens.

    Riddle Sideways: Yak, you were rezzing yesterday just as the sim was going down
    Riddle Sideways: how was that
    Riddle Sideways: could see you from Kira
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it was a bit strange, i saw the friendshiplist but was logged out in the middle of rezzing
    Riddle Sideways: so the b+w screen of death
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes
    Riddle Sideways: which is different then windows blue screen
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the screen just rotted away :)
    Riddle Sideways: a lot of that rotten stuff around
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you´ve been talking about metaphors ?
    Riddle Sideways: or talking about how you are
    Storm Nordwind: Not really. Just recycling and rotten fruit. Hardly got started!

    Missing a quote box.

    Riddle Sideways: the boxy quote box is gone
    Riddle Sideways: kinda miss that distraction
    Storm Nordwind: Maybe the Riddle Box of Illumination is called for :)
    Riddle Sideways: if alfred adds copy-n-paste of quotes to chat we might ....
    Riddle Sideways: get millions of old quotes into logs
    Storm Nordwind: Who will sort the wheat from the chaff? Or are all quotes equal?
    Riddle Sideways: some are more precious then Faenik non-sequitars
    Yakuzza Lethecus likes the idea of guardians adding their favorite quotes
    Yakuzza Lethecus: random mode and favortie mode
    Storm Nordwind: yes!
    Storm Nordwind: Maybe an anniversary project?
    Riddle Sideways: maybe

    The next art project.

    Riddle Sideways: can't remember the next art project
    Riddle Sideways: memory rot
    Riddle Sideways: there was talk of a project
    Riddle Sideways: feburary time frame
    Storm Nordwind wonders about quote, how many are only relevant in their context and decay after like rotten fruit, and how many are as relevant today as when they were first spoken
    Storm Nordwind: There was talk about "The Art of Being Happy"
    Storm Nordwind: Perhaps starting installation in mid-February for a meeting in late February.


    Riddle Sideways: rotten fruit seems relevant to this conversation, but will it be as rotten next year
    Storm Nordwind: The fruit, or the year itself?
    Riddle Sideways: out of context produces lots of laugther
    Storm Nordwind: very true!
    Storm Nordwind: or embarrassment
    Storm Nordwind: or sometimes inspiration, as a spur to find something contemporary and relevant
    Riddle Sideways: think that is boxy's attempt
    Riddle Sideways: and why some would be ___ to paste into the chat
    Storm Nordwind: A little gentle reminding of why we're here can often go a long way. :)
    Riddle Sideways: oh yeah, there is that
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Riddle Sideways: a couple years ago there was the personal search for how to type [fill in your own word here] symbols/characters
    Riddle Sideways: not sure that ___ works
    Riddle Sideways: wonder if it did not get resolved
    Riddle Sideways: or have forgotten
    Storm Nordwind: I'm not sure I remember what you mean. Do you mean special characters? Or what scripted objects say? Or things that are somehow missing, like a lacuna?
    Riddle Sideways: when using words to get a principle/idea across
    Riddle Sideways: in a crowd of different lever, experienced, etc.
    Riddle Sideways: there needed the word ___ said
    Yakuzza Lethecus googles in between lacuna and same taste
    Riddle Sideways: which meant just the right thing that each would understand
    Storm Nordwind: Ah I see. Like a universal vocabulary?
    Riddle Sideways: each reader brings they understanding {word/phrase} into the sentence
    Storm Nordwind nods

    Like an artwork.

    Storm Nordwind: How was the problem of differing assumptions for each person addressed? Or was that not seen as a problem?
    Riddle Sideways: rotten memory, but probably problem was seen and solution not addressed
    Storm Nordwind: Perhaps it's like an artwork, where the important thing is not what any meaning the artist intended, but rather all the different meanings that each individual viewer sees in it.
    Riddle Sideways: yes
    Riddle Sideways: with that additiion
    Riddle Sideways: that if the artist actually put the blueberries in the picture
    Riddle Sideways: they would not be understood
    Riddle Sideways: by some of the viewers
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i got to leave, cya soon
    Storm Nordwind: Bye Yak
    Riddle Sideways: ok, bye yak

    Expanding knowledge.

    Storm Nordwind: When we don't understand things, there's always the opportunity to speculate, or research, or ignore, or just accept and enjoy.
    Riddle Sideways: yep, always those
    Storm Nordwind: Blueberries to me always meant America in the past. Now they also remind me of a smelly car!
    Riddle Sideways: expanding knowledge
    Riddle Sideways: innocence lost
    Storm Nordwind: It only seems as though it's expanding. Actually the containing vessel - my memory - is getting smaller and stuff is overflowing and falling out! ;-)
    Riddle Sideways: yep, but seems like expanding
    Storm Nordwind smiles

    Losing wikipedia and dropping baggage.

    Riddle Sideways: was amazing to lose wikipedia yesterday
    Storm Nordwind: and so many other sites too
    Storm Nordwind: Seems to have had some effect
    Riddle Sideways: how much of memory has been parked off in [it can be looked up]
    Storm Nordwind: yes indeed.
    Storm Nordwind: Google has become my memory
    Riddle Sideways: and Evernote is the journal
    Storm Nordwind: I wonder. I just had to look up Evernote!
    Riddle Sideways: and the metaphor of 'DropBox'
    Riddle Sideways: which is used on many computers here
    Storm Nordwind is obviously stuck in antediluvian technology. He still uses viewer 1 after all!
    Riddle Sideways: the idea of dropping (maybe in the PaB way) and it still being there
    Riddle Sideways: and on all other computers too
    Storm Nordwind: yes - that's probably relevant to PaB dropping. Not wasting energy in carrying around baggage

    Wigs and avatars.

    Riddle Sideways: Hi Santo
    Santoshima Resident: hi Riddle, Storm, o-b -m
    Storm Nordwind: Hi San... are you deliberately sitting outside the range of the listener in the pool?
    Riddle Sideways: maybe :)
    Santoshima Resident: i think i'm within range am i not?
    Storm Nordwind: Actually you are. yes
    Santoshima Resident: didn't want to intrude, am late
    Storm Nordwind: I missed the listener in the particles
    Riddle Sideways: that sentence parses funny
    Santoshima Resident: which?
    Storm Nordwind: Your consideration is appreciated but your presence is always welcome :))
    Santoshima Resident: ty
    Riddle Sideways: is that a new av?
    Santoshima Resident: no, just a new wig
    Santoshima Resident: of which this avi has many
    Riddle Sideways: image of going to the closet and picking todays avi
    Riddle Sideways: playing dress up dolls
    Storm Nordwind: Maybe it's not a "guy thing" ;)
    Riddle Sideways: it's a SL thing
    Storm Nordwind looks at Riddle's and Storm's avatars = pretty much the same as they've always been!
    Santoshima Resident: dunno about that
    Riddle Sideways: stuck or tradition
    Santoshima Resident: riddle looks very different today
    Riddle Sideways: ty
    Storm Nordwind is just very lazy... or focuses on other things ;)
    Santoshima Resident: yes

    "The older order changeth, yielding place to new."

    Storm Nordwind: Things change. Culture changes. Some needs change while some remain. Some fruit gets rotten and needs cleaning out. (Just reading how Kodak has just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.) What was once iconic is not* eclipsed.
    Storm Nordwind: *not > now (!)
    Santoshima Resident: hahadn't heard about kodak ... seems a logical progression
    Riddle Sideways: see pondering "not eclipsed' changed the sentence intent
    Santoshima Resident: typos still abound, though
    Storm Nordwind: “The old order changeth, yielding place to new, And God fulfills himself in many ways, Lest one good custom should corrupt the world.”
    Riddle Sideways: the little film canister sitting on the shelf waiting to go get developed
    Riddle Sideways: hopefully, storm

    Have your best day!

    Storm Nordwind: Time to recycle, Riddle?
    Santoshima Resident: salut, Riddle
    Riddle Sideways: ok folks, yep time to recycle
    Storm Nordwind: Always great to see you! :)
    Riddle Sideways: have your best day
    Santoshima Resident: you too, riddle, such a wonderful thought
    Storm Nordwind: I thought so too :))
    Storm Nordwind: Well I shall disappear too, if you will excuse me :)
    Santoshima Resident: bye Storm, good to see you
    Storm Nordwind: You too :))
