I'm grappling with what seems like a general
statement- "people keep sowing without even caring
that much"- which people, and who doesn't care?  If
you look at the work of the four panelists and the
places that each hae made for himself I'd say there is
a lot of care there.  If you're referring to some
users who start up or join web sites, mailing lists,
and weblogs and abandond them, well, I wonder if that
has more to do with misconceived ideas about the work
and involvement in those ventures rather than whether
or not they really care.

Say more.  What's the distinction is being made here
between self and self-centering?  Is self a kind of
consciousness, and self-centering a kind of
unconsciousness.  Am I confusing the negative term
"self-centered" with "self-centering?"
