Twitter notes, September 2010

Tweeting sometimes is like keeping a diary :-). Looking back, one can track his/her thinking based on practical realities on those days. Here are my tweets last September. Again, some tweets that seemed to be duplicating with others I did not include here.

@piacayetano Why not privatize PAGASA? 2 Sep

@ANCALERTS Just promulgate the rule of law, not rule of men. The law applies to everyone, no exception. Then people will respect laws. 2 Sep

@jimparedes Knowledge is subversive too. Leads to endless innovation and competition in econ, culture, etc. Knowledge is individual freedom. 14 Sep
