hi all -my report frim isea..
We are floating on the baltic sea with all day conference and all night vj and performances.very intense. Very sleepy.
Sorry to have been so absent in the last few days and thanx to christina and jim for picking up the facilitation while I was out of contact. We have plentiful wi-fi on board but only a small satellite connectiion in and out to the world.. So connection and mail is slightly flakey, reminding me of early net days and also reminding me how priveledged we are on fat fast connections.
Our panel met today, called "The List" with Charlotte, Axel,and Kathy discussing what theyhave been posting already on the list.we were then joined by Jonah , and In an american style of audience participation[I played oprah winfrey with mobile mike and personal revalations ;), we held the panel in a glitzy smokey bar, and it was broadcast thru the tvs to all the cabins on the boat ] Mark Tribe, Beryl Graham and other audience members discussed general list issues including the dominance of english, fre labour in running lists, target marketing of lists,differing funtionaliity of bbs,s bloggs, wikis etc, strategies and the future of lists.
The structure of the list being a more critical factor than the content was a fascinating thread of discussion.
an interresting conclusion of the panel was the seeming lack of crossover and dialogue between lists, dispite most people being on many lists, but there is rarely refernce to
or acknowledgement of other lists .
this can be about cross fertilisation if ideas:
Axel spoke of the promiscuity of list users in gathering info from many sources but how do we as a list utilise.. take advantage of..the wealth of knowledge and experience we have here in a spirit of cooperation and learn fron and support each other.. A network of networks so to speak. Or is that impossible and do we just enjoy and maintain our individual differences ?
