Working on the Clavier Project

1 min read

This morning I dashed off an 'invocation' to the Simon Ensor spearheaded project, Clavier.  Here is what I wrote:

    This page not left intentionally blank.  It is an invocation. Let’s work slantwise and humble as we realize that     we cannot manage complexity.  Instead we must live in it and share it and work locally with others to learn.      Otherwise we fall prey to the same hypocrisies and power relations we have always fallen prey to.  Intractable     problems arise from the past. Solutions can’t arise from there, hence the word ‘intractable’.  We need new     solutions that come from a creative field that draws us from the future-what has been called ‘feedforward’.  We     cannot deny the past, but we cannot deny that new ideas are created everyday.  We have every reason to be     hopeful--if we make a new road together by walking it.


Connecting with folk this morning on Twitter/FB/RSSFeed/email/G+. Trying to figure out pubsubhubbub.

Dogtrax gets down on Mr. Bb, noted information siloficator and disconnector. There is a reason why we call software open. If you can't open it you don't own it. If you don't own it, you ain't free within it.

Any word for this?

Is there any word for the sad/disappointed feeling you get when, for example,  you want to be at an online conference to learn something worth learning, but you know for sure that you will not be able to. It is depressing to know that you need to know more.  Sigh. You can't. Anger bubbling.  What is the word for this internal state of affairs?
