Thoughts on OPEN 2018 (
Nathan Schneider had questions about the cooperative side of things. Are we using the language of commons, or the language of ownership? Are we escaping ownership, or doubling down on it?.. Nathan’s musing on whether this community is part of the traditional co-op movement or something new and different was interesting

I just published “The Movie of Your Own Life Does Not Suck: A conversation with Bo Burnham”
how social media companies — no matter their intent — can still provide young people with the platforms they need to experiment with identity, define themselves on their own terms, and offer up the best, most honest things they have to share with one another. 
burnham: I really wanted to talk about someone failing to articulate ..The gulf between the idea you have in your head and what comes out of your face. 
burnham: And you see kids online who are self-made in their bedrooms, but imposing upon themselves the standards of Hollywood and higher culture for no reason. They don’t have to. It’s weird to watch a little show of a 15-year-old kid, who is still adhering to standards of NBC.
burnham:  I can’t believe the sort of conversations we’re having about the Internet are like cyberbullying and Russia. There’s something a little subtler going on! There’s something interior, something that’s actually changing our own view of ourselves, our relationship between our head and our heart and our stomach. Before we start processing giant social trends I think we have to understand how the internet radicalizes our own relationship to ourselves way more than our relationship to other people.

be\cause of this essay by Brian D Earp (shared by @surreallyno )
The Unbearable Asymmetry of Bullshit – feb 2016
There will always be things that we haven’t figured out yet, and even some that we get wrong.” ...It’s about a methodology for investigation, which includes, at its core, a relentless drive towards questioning that which came before.
There is a veritable truckload of bullshit in science. When I say bullshit, I mean arguments, data, publications, or even the official policies of scientific organizations thatgive every impression of being perfectly reasonable — of being well-supported by the highest quality of evidence, and so forth — but which don’t hold up when you scrutinize the details
once you do catch on, it becomes impossible to un-see.
they end up becoming a part of the published record with every appearance of being legitimate critique.
what does published record even mean .. no?
hearing myself questioning blockchain for validation (rather than facilitation). hearing 09 rhodes scholar questioning another person’s book/narrative (not as is… but as ultimate)
As the programmer Alberto Brandolini is reputed to have said: 
The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it.
oh the energy\ness we waste via bullshit ness
the realest thing in our lives via Seth (same day)

The realest thing in our lives

Are the stories we invent.
We live with these stories, we remind ourselves of them, we perfect them.
And, happily, if you don’t like the story you’re telling yourself, you can change it.

we sit in our stadiums (thousands of thousands of us) yelling at manufactured players..
and/or online yelling at our yelling.
while – syria.. kampala.. solitary.. suicide.. et al goes on alongside

what might happen .. if instead of our story being that of our child being a future player (nevermind the less visible dying via body/brain/soul abuse) making tons of money/popularity and/or a future politician/official person making tons of money (nevermind the less visible dying via body/brain/soul abuse) … we changed the story to be that of our child being the one seeking refuge, answers, …

would that change things

open enough

perhaps what we need to do (first) is find/work-on a system that is open enough to set/keep 7 billion+ people free. today.
open as in involving enough people
like when Tim Berners-Lee says, he had to give the www away, because it would only work if the whole world was on it. the more people.. the better the chances of 1\ people finding their tribe and 2\ the sync of humanity getting its day… ie: getting to dance the dance..
open as in involving enough eclectic people
systemic change begs discrimination to infinity, ie: no more lables. if we see everyone as a thumbprint, two lovely/humane things happen, 1\ prejudice decreases, age/race/expertise/status/cliques, .. becomes irrelevant, and  2\ ourinterconnectedness (our one\ness) becomes more visible,

ie: a people experiment

aka: in the city. as the day.
