Agee Farcaster is not as directly political but it strikes me as discursively political insofar as: (a) it decenters sovereign hegemony from the frontier of social media by introducing a censorship resistant network; and (b) social media has expanded the domain of the “political” with the osmotic ideology of memes.

i love the platform, but, as a professional namer: the names. both farcaster and warpcast do not call one back. they cast one away. they do not beckon, cajole, entice. the names land like a hard bag of bricks on mashed potattention. together they’re not merely confusing but jointly and severally alienating

makes sense to distinguish name protocol from the client, but the prime client could sound more friendly, more fun and a bit more fluidly fem. warpcaster is a v manly, falling dactylic meter, mechanical and very downcast. something like “Warpy” would be lighter and iambically happy.

And yet, technology is always awful: when it's good, it's awful in that olde sense of inspiring awe, like George Eliot's hot take on "nature in all her awful loveliness"; and when it's bad, it's awful in the more contemporary sense that Sylvester Stallone deploys when saying "I made some truly awful movies."

Jean-Paul Sartre loved musing re the metaphysics of smoking, his way of being is crystallized in the universal existence of the very smoksperience that precedes essence.This Bakewell book is the best one re the existentialist scene. And brilliantly written.

Well, it's the establishment and signaling (not necessarily anti-social, because there are "people" and there's "social media" in our phone) self-sufficiency. The goal many not be to invite social behavior in the moment. But behavioral self-sufficiency habitually radiates one's social worthiness.

Yes, I also wish they would turn MY Anderson’s Feed into a show. It’s brilliant. https://www.amazon.com/Feed-M-T-Anderson/dp/0763662623

This insight is crucially important. In late-mobile-digital-capitalism, we are social beings who prove our worthiness of social connection (to strangers on all platforms of transit) by establishing our self-sufficiency. The cigarette served a similar function for existentialists. Ah that smokingly cellphonic irony.

This seems to assume that the org starts with a blank cultural slate—but much of organizational culture is not “learned” tabula rasa as a result of collective org-specific problem solving but inherited from the cultural norms and precedent patterns of the org’s founders and the org’s broader cultural context

What about Warpy Caster? Then they can make glasses that give noggles a run for their money. Wargles

i sometimes wonder how “warpcast” was picked? setting aside the WC-breviation, “warp” is not exactly a name that engenders affection.

congrats!!!! inferences are so vital to our understanding. to paraphrase Eco: The task of general semiotics is that of tracing a formal structure of the inference which generates interpretation. The task of specific semiotics is establishing the rules of greater or lesser semiotic necessity for inferences.

the most useful trans-domain tool on this front is the “Ladder of Abstraction” from linguist S. I. Hayakawa, and check out this lovely visual 🪜nalogy in his 1939 book

Bergson may have said something of the sort. And it's a bit of a red herring because it truly depends on how you define "idea." If your idea is a new take on "time and free will," like Bergson, then you can fit a heck of a lot sub-ideas under that heading without exceeding your self-imposed one-idea quota.

in a sense, though Siegel’s analogies tend to be more geometrically multidimensional than mere layers. Siegel’s key analogy, “the wheel of awareness,” is a circular hub of awareness and outer sensory perimeter.

I see stickers as empowering our play of layers. We live within layers, often ones we have no “control” over: the layers of the earth, the universe, consciousness, being itself. So, when we can, we love playfully palimpsesting layers, scraping off the old and sticking on the new—stickers, filters, makeup, tattoos

Positively thrilled and heart warningly excited to learn the ideAction framework is activating your artistic ideation! The ideAction framework exists to serve as a springboard for what Jeremy Utley and Perry Kelbahn at the Stanford d. school have dubbed IdeaFlow. Perhaps we can get them to re-name that: ideActionFlow

An amazing new book on this theme is Daniel J. Siegel's IntraConnected: MWe (Me + We) as the Integration of Self, Identity, and Belonging. My immersive encounter with IntraConnected, as well as Siegel's prior work on mindsight, inspired many of the philosophical principles underlying the IdeAction framework.
