“Truth is indestructible. It seems history shows (and it’s the same way today) that the innovator is more often than not met with some degree of condemnation; usually according to the degree of departure from the prevailing modes of expression or what have you. Change is always hard to accept…. Quite often they are the rejects, outcasts, sub-citizens, etc. of the very societies to which they bring so mush sustenance… Whatever the case, whether accepted or rejected, rich or poor, they are forever guided by that great and eternal constant – the creative urge. Let us cherish it and give all praise to God.”

Great sequence of twitter statuses (all happened close together with only 2 additional statuses I removed to create a focus). If you are not used to twitter – the sequence is in reverse chronological order.

@whatleydude – I have not found a way to represent myself in a 160 character bio and I have stopped looking. I am thankful for a diverse and rich life. No I do not assume that folks browsing profiles have time or patience and yes I know very well that they actually don’t. But that is a choice that  each and every “folk” makes (consciously or not). I choose otherwise (consciously).

@gapingvoid – again you are correct and astute, but attention is a wall not just for the Web 2.0 fantasy (which has and will run into many other walls).

@ajkeen – I think that to connect to what’s really going on we need to set aside the word economy  and look for better pespectives – maybe ecology?

I remember reading quite some time ago about the narrowing effects of Powerpoint on business communications. I get the feeling that twitter is having a similar effect on personal communication?

Yoga philosophy explains that the mind has qualities – and that each quality can be functional or dysfunctional. This perspective supports me. Twitter (like anything else) can be functional/dysfunctional – that is not a quality of twitter but rather a quality of the people who use it.

Thank you all for this charming gathering.
