- Noon bells against the brakes of an 18-wheeler making a sudden stop. #

- A helpful description by @jbutlerjbutler about his contribution to the first Disquiet Junto: http://t.co/lj0FCoBi #

- If you do Facebook, there's a Disquiet page: http://t.co/vEwdbjEe. It's not as natural to me as Twitter, but conversations do occur. #
- PR emails announcing "new album title revealed" exist to demarcate the bottom threshold of information. #
- Me, too. Sorting out details (assignment, FAQ revisions). RT @gesslr: @disquiet – anxiously awaiting the next in the #junto series. #
- An email in which the inadvertently embedded raw .ics data includes the phrase "CALSCALE:GREGORIAN" feels very Anathem. #
