one with yourself. one with others.
so what if we use 2 convos to literally redefine school (the day, the funding, the mindset, ..):
not just chatter…
calling/inviting each other to exist….
conversational thinkers .. perpetually in beta. alive. awake.
We’re becoming more conversational thinkers—a shift that has been rocky, not least because everyday public thought uncorks the incivility and prejudices that are commonly repressed in face-to-face life. But at its best (which, I’d argue, is surprisingly often), it’s a thrilling development, reigniting ancient traditions of dialogue and debate. – Clive Thompson
from Sherry Turkle‘s reclaiming conversation
much of the work is done (in convo) as children learn they are in a place they can come back to, tomorrow and tomorrow. when digital media encourage us to edit ourselves until we have said the ‘right thing’ we can lose sight of the important thing: relationships deepen not because we necessarily say anything in particular but because we are invested enough to show up for another conversation.
getting a go.. every day.. anew.. and always.
if you’re talking you can mess up.. and it turns into something really funny. that’s how people bond.. it’s not like everything is made to be perfect. – ginger
i’ll keep coming back to the convo. ground hog day ness
conversation implies something kinetic. it is derive from words that mean ‘to tend to each other, to lean toward each other’ words about the activity of relationship
communication ness.. the never being finished ness
on the cycle/intertwining of the two conversations (a&a)..
solitude does not necessarily mean being alone it is a a state of conscious retreat, a gathering of the self. the capacity for solitude makes relationships with others more authentic.
because you know who you are, you can see others for who they are, not for who you need them to be..
what do i have to do in order for you to be free ness.. 0rland bishop
we don’t know who we are when we are alone, we turn to other people to support our sense of self. this makes it impossible to fully experience others as who they are.

self-talk as data.
app/chip update ideas – perhaps everyone does the 3 min by 9am. then there are a couple set assembly places (ie: library, school buildings, theatre/hall, park, ..) – where the app directed/suggested match-ups happen at 10am. (rather than a text – perhaps gps ness directs matches to each other) the 30 min home base group would be determined by that group of 7ish.
