Maybe this is why so many people dislike broccoli!


LOVED this post Sig... "Models", lots to let sift through the unconscious, kind of a riverbed thingamy.


Sheamus, suspected you'd appreciate the image of a "brook" ;)

BTW, you're in Canada, should you not be sleeping at this time of the night??


Sig, I've always been an early bird, and it is a joy for me to be filled with the excitment of life including great ideas (e.g., thingamy) and technology (e.g., thingamy)!

My usual day starts around 5:00 am and 2-3 days a week I start around 3:45 am or earlier.

A great change of pattern (i.e., new models, which I love!) in the last few years is that I can take a nap in the afternoon and then work and play into the last evening as well... YAHOO!

Riverbeds, brooks and streams... Soooo good! ;)


There's part of me still trying to "process the post" - but I agree with your thinking. Riverbed create ecosystems, pipelines don't. Or said another way, riverbeds foster the growth of the ecosystem - pipelines are forced into an established ecosystem and are then absorbed into it - they're tolerated.

Riverbeds are natural. Pipelines are forced and under pressure. Love the idea - and now of course, I'm going to have to blog about it. ;-)

Hey, I recently added a news widget from www.widgetmate.com to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.
