On Millions, Expressly

Notes I've taken on Blogger, expression and value. No - actually better not to think in terms of just one tool.

The online personal voice. The partipatory web and the growing catalogue of where, who, what, when, why.

What's interesting about it, they say? All those photos and all that endless self-talk, "I experience", "I experienced", "I may experience again..."

It's the nature of the thing. Our timers are always set to run. Often we dismiss the motion of the clock's second-hand; it's boring perhaps because it's easily presumed. So why isn't this a problem? What remains compelling about invitations into personal spaces - information that doesn't help us to survive individually? Perhaps it's this: Any life is dramatic that is only lived once.

    "Any life is dramatic that is only lived once."

    Interresting concept that I just may have to "borrow" for blogging purposes. I love it when I get a chance to argue both sides of an issue.

    Oh, and this was a while back, but I totally got it when you said you wanted to have people's brains in a box. If you figure out how to do that, let me know.

    Also, what do you think about bringing Dealership up to Chico? It's a fun, artsy, music town, ya know. There are a couple of really good venues for all ages shows, which I know are a favorite of yours. Just a thought. (Oh, and I had a great time at Cafe du Nord last week.)
