:: note :: ... wordle of converstation @ Second Thoughts ... posted some (what i thought were ironic) comments ... irony was missed ... although the response was quite gentle: "you seem like a broken child of the internet" ... followed later by an oh get it post ... still realized my difficulty in conveying nuances ... still the wordle had a point ... showed who talked the most ... the danger is in some networks most = loudest = (lets say) griefer = remove ... not a representation of the quality of the conversation just graphics of words & we can use/manipulate words ... oh well as long as just talking to myself no problems ...

:: note :: ... accept those talking marks/grades/assessment/institutions is an important part of their narrative ... after this pre-course "work" must chip away to principles of personal practice by ruthless selection of info-nodes ... find it difficult to commit (be open) to any process structured/unstructured of "network" whether social, neuronal or conceptual ... live chaos ... love complexity & diversity ... keep experimenting with (x28) rules versus patterns, complicated vs. complex, equivalence vs. similarity, and coping with ambiguity and uncertainty ... my paradox is to be a fully involved participant & be invisible ... have shifted posts on this CCK08 course over to it's own category ...
