3.16.2015Now that the latest missing teen in my circle of friends has been found, I've removed the original text from my Facebook search post, because effective social-media calls end up accidentally lasting longer than necessary and that just confuses things. But, in the process, I lost this text and I want to repost it because it's an important glimpse of my heart on the issue:"Odds are she's safe of her own free will, but a family's love doesn't play the odds and neither does the law when it comes to minors. And if she's not safe, time is of the essence. Let's get her found, then hash out the questions and family dynamics later."And I stand by that. When kids go missing (and adults too, but primarily with teens), particularly girls, there's this weird social undercurrent of "she probably just ran away, looking to gain attention with some drama." Maybe, I suppose. Maybe not. It doesn't matter. The odds of really bad consequences (up to and including death) are high enough that the time to question and criticize needs to be delayed, if it even has to come at all.Put more bluntly: Shut up and find the kid so the family is reunited with a living person, who you can then be upset with later. Okay?
2.20.2015home automation" where robots wash your dishes, but a way of automating conversation, research, personal engagements. Things where you, a real live person, can be more efficient or effective because a computer does some basic or simple or repetitive task for you.
In that vein, I discovered Zemanta awhile back, which was (is?) a tool for automatically finding related stuff based on what you write in a blog post.
Which I think is pretty cool! I've got it out at http://ret.ention.net for the Story of America card project (which hasn't seen any action in ages, by the way)
Anyway, I didn't give it much thought, until I found this email way down deep in my archive:
No, Link Remove, thank you for the lovely note. By the way, there's usually a name or signature that goes at the bottom, especially when you're leaving off with "Thank You," ...and that comma just sits there, alone, dangling...

Anyway, Zac Johnson's page is linked from those posts thanks to Zemanta, which is apparently where the problem lies?
I still like Zemanta. It's the thing that, in one click, let me highlight Zac's name right there! And it'll take you to his homepage! Pretty cool, I'd say. And I'm not sure if using LinkRemovalHelp.com to send cryptic messages to bloggers is the best way to boost your SEO. But maybe it worked in this case?
