Why have a digital presence?
Why email, instant message, blog, myspace/facebook/social network, post online pages or documents?
What I post/publish to the web is a work based in recording memory, story, place, nature, and space. It is a regular practise premised that the world is a connected system. Reading others delights, informs and even transforms. Sharing is a creative act, an opportunity to respond & collaborate. Collaborative intelligence means finding and working with all available co-operative forces. Working involves balance, mystery and tolerance to foster wonder, humility, compassion and humour. There is a collective intelligence, the intelligence we generate together. Collective intelligence is a source of empowerment and the web as the embodiment of collective intelligence. I risk a digital presence for 'digital grace'. A quest for ways to bridge questions & perceptions towards quickening the incantatory, magical power of imagination.
(Random notes from Pierre Levy, Susan Sontag and others. Can't be more exact. Notes were found in an old digital file before I knew how to better notate sources with the now excellent bookmark services/tags/tools).
