@care_save and @Douggins: I am having doubts about this ‘reboot’, feeling that I haven’t really been focused on it, and we haven’t really gotten in sync about what it would entail, operationally. I want to do more than just talk and post the recording; I would like to produce something that’s developed to a stage where others can meaningfully interact with and respond to it, or better, participate.
This means that in some way, they must be able to see and hear it, which means they must first become aware of it. At that point they can decide whether they care, and we can offer some concrete options. The current state of ‘Cosmovision’ (as a conversation series) feels vague to me—I feel I/we need to do more work to develop the concept before we attempt to produce a public event.
That’s something I would love to work on collaboratively —but maybe we should move it to the ‘creative studio’ channel for further incubation, which will open up the calendar for more potent present potentials.
The Cosmos Café on Tuesday (Cosmos Café [7/2] - The Next Steps for the Cosmos) should offer a good opportunity for strategy and visioning work this week. I imagine we can continue using the Café space for these types of talks. I also know that Caroline has been working on all kinds of fractal juiciness, which I have not yet fully absorbed.
Could we take a step back here, take a breath, ask what we want and what wants to happen?
I think I may need a new pair of sunglasses this summer. The cheap plastic lenses of my current ones, beloved as they are, may need to be replaced by a stronger frame, polished glass, more durable materials.
