    The Discussion

      Love the show!

      Brian is on a roll when he talks about TFS and TS Tongue Out Couldn't get one word in between could you Dan?

      I have a fast connection, but I've given up trying to watch these things... never more than a few secs between lengthy buffering delays... and downloading so slow that it's almost outdated info before I can watch it.
    • Dan
      LOL, true, he's a TFS maniac. I do agree with him that the Notion tools look pretty sweet Smiley
    • TommyCarlier

      Yeah, I also noticed Brian's passion for TFS, and in previous videos too. It's cool to see someone that's enthusiastic about a certain technology.

      PS: Maybe “Brian The Build Bunny” was named after Brian Keller.

      I'm dead scared about the brain thing right now... scaaaaaaryy!!!
    • Dan
      Yeah, could you imagine what the back of your mind or your subconscious would Twitter:)? Could be pretty funny to hear what's really on everyone's mind.
    • littleguru
      I wonder if it would be very pleasent if you knew what everyone is thinking.

      Btw. thanks for pointing out the session on design! I watched it and it's definitvely great. Smiley
    • Dodo
      It's not, I can assure you that for a certain reason that would be obvious on that regard, but hard to believe. Wink

      By the way, brain virtualization and a 'brain firewall' would prevent you from doing anything stupid. Apart from that, it's not going to be worse than sleep walking.
    • Dan

      While it may not be pleasant to hear, don't you think it's odd that we ignore our own thoughts and that this is something everyone experiences? Can we really not handle the truth of what everyone is *really* thinking?

      I do *love* the idea of a brain firewall though, you could make sure to filter out words like "love", "hate", "secret", etc.  I think some people need that on their conscious mind, I know I've made some bad slip-ups in the past, especially when a few drinks are involved Smiley

    • littleguru
      Well... ignoring some thoughts is good. The next logical step of saying what we think is doing what we think... and I don't expect that to have a good outcome. I wonder how often people would have killed others just because they were mad at them. It's good that certaint things stay in the brain and only there Smiley In some religions (like christianity) it is even a sin to think "bad" things Wink
