Why the hell isn’t there a “shuffle these” menu item just below the “play all” item in menus for artists, genres, albums, etc?
I guess it should seem appalling, and maybe it used to to me, but now it just makes sense. What hunter would kill the last of a species — a poor one. There’s already good common sense about gun safety in the hunting culture — why not conservationism, too?
(I’ve realized I won’t stop killing things like bugs, or even stop eating fish, so I have to have a healthier relationship with my feelings about hunting)
I’d say more, but Alfie Kohn pretty much said it all. (except for the full explanation of motivation theory and grades).
When thinking about a few things (Thunderbird’s shady priority for Mozilla, RoundCube, Gmail, Social Networking Sites, iGoogle, Pidgin, etc), I’ve decided that it would be best if there was an opensource project for domain owners to install that would include most of this functionality. It could focus on a jabber-type account for the users (or like drupal or typekey) … TBC
(because domains and hosting aren’t that expensive, and frankly I’d prefer to keep my data to myself)
