    theft which is surely is He implied that all economic wealth is theft However let s look at the definition of theft Theft noun The crime of taking someone else s property without consent Does all wealth involve taking someone else s property without consent No it does not I ll use Expanse as an example here I created a piece of software that others have found value in Every single customer willingly and eagerly offered to me their hard earned money in exchange for the product They willingly gave their property If 5 million people were to each willingly offer me their property in exchange for the software I created I have not stolen anything and I now have More Posted in miscellaneous A thought 1 comment 01 June 2007 Even though Ryan hasn t written back yet I was thinking over my own post and it occurs to me that I made a few statements that seem kind of contradictory and I d like to clarify those The apparently contradictory statements is like this It appears that I am against socialism because of the Golden rule and yet morally okay with imprisonment and even torture in rare circumstances even though those both violate that rule The argument I can anticipate goes something like Since people being able to eat trumps the moral rule of do not steal it should be okay for socialism to take the money from individuals and use it to fulfill a higher moral good Here is the difference and this is where the clarification comes I believe that moral exceptions are unique and usually isolated instances For instance stealing food when your family is starving to death I think in that instance the stealing would be justified But I don t think you can make a system of governmental or patriarchal etc rule around a moral exception nor do I think you can make a system of rule based around a violation of the rule It would be akin to legalizing perjury to save someone from imprisonment Sorry I am used to battling myself this way More Posted in miscellaneous A response 1 comment 31 May 2007 Okay so Ryan posted his reasons for not agreeing with Bush and since I think we re both arguing from the same foundation that of a Judeo Christian morality I figured I could address his issues and maybe get a good discussion out of this as well as some clarity For those who still contend that morality has no place in politics the questions still stand But let s get to it 1 Bush gives tax breaks to the wealthy and the corporate while increasing taxes and cutting programs for the poor and the weak This one SOUNDS like a good argument but when you critically examine it I feel that it comes up short Right now 95 of the current tax revenue comes from the top 2 of earners in the country That means that any

    and forward in our navigation timeline Rather than overloading the Home button which is already used for multiple purposes such as going to the home screen of the phone jumping to spotlight force quitting apps navigating between apps we already have a place in the UI for handling this which is the back button So my idea is to add 2 interactions to the current back button 1 A double tap Double tapping the back button will quickly jump a user back to the home screen of the app 2 A long press Pressing and holding down on the back button will open up a list view which will show your current location in the overall app navigation hierarchy This could either be just strictly in the scope of your navigation history so only backwards and forwards or in the absolute scope of the app hierarchy which would make it a sort of Table of Contents view Now the downside to this mechanism is that it doesn t solve the habit of pressing the Home button in order to escape any sort of deep navigation hierarchy My thought on that is that providing the user with some way in which they can leave perhaps a new habit will be formed This might only be discovered with some user testing The other issue is that it s not easily discoverable However the tapping of the application bar and double pressing the home button are not easily discoverable actions however once learned form an easy habit Posted in miscellaneous ui Comments are closed Colophonication I had a real cool interesting blurb about the details of the typeface like a real colophon but I ve redesigned this site so many times over the last few years I ve lost track If you care
