The written word

Euen Semple

For all its faults, and its inclination to distract us with images and memes, Facebook allows us to share words on a scale and at a speed as never before. This joined up writing has a power we are only now playing with. The power of connection and shared meaning. My knowledge of you comes through the words you choose and the order you place them in.

Vale Seymour Papert

Clark Quinn

Imagine my surprise that I missed the demise of Seymour Papert this past year (yet another loss). I’ve looked back to see what I was doing on 31 July and how I missed it, and we were preparing for a week in the wilderness. So it’s certainly likely I wasn’t deeply involved in the news. So here’s a belated tribute.

My conspiracy theory

David Weinberger

My conspiracy theory: The purported dossier on Trump says the Russians have been cultivating him for five years. Suppose they were pressuring him to run. As a true patriot, Trump knew how disastrous it would be to have a Russian puppet as President. He just kept upping the ante. And then we elected him. The Manchurian Producers. No Puppet.

Interesting enough.

Euen Semple

"I don't think that what I do is interesting enough" is a concern often expressed when I suggest people share more on their organisation's social network about what they do. Even, perhaps especially, people at a senior level worry that the stuff that fills their days is boring. Things that feel unimportant can be significant. Poets know this.

Olin Library: Library as place, as lab, as local theater

David Weinberger

I went to see my friend Jeff Goldenson — we worked together at the Harvard Library Innovation Lab — at Olin College , where he’s director of the library. Most importantly, he’s turned it into a place that the community feels it owns. Olin’s got 350 students, all engineers, half of whom are women. Yes, it is an affluent community.

Advice

Euen Semple

There is no shortage of advice these days. Whatever we are contemplating doing we have, at our fingertips, confident, and often conflicting, assertions of what we should do. But there is a world of difference between telling people what they should do and sharing with fellow travellers insights you have gathered along the way.

Make policies, not deals

David Weinberger

We can argue about whether president-elect Trump’s deal to save 800 jobs at Carrier?—?ten ten years of tax breaks and other incentives worth $7 million to the company?—?was was a good one or not. We can get riled up about Trump taking credit for keeping open a Ford plant that wasn’t closing. Policies are the same for all concerned.
