Salome, the dancing whore,
Wore seven veils,

To tantalize and hold his eyes,
As each fell to the floor.
"It was a terrible mistake. It doesn’t work because people game it — and the people who game it are the people with time and social-media expertise, and those are not the people with information or insight. What person who actually has a job and a reputation… would give a fuck about getting some little badge like they’re in high school? It’s patronizing." --Nick Denton of Gawker Media.
Every social endeavor, every spontaneous human activity, is a conversation. With people, it's conversations all the way down.
