2 conversations

one with yourself. one with others.

so what if we use 2 convos to literally redefine school (the day, the funding, the mindset, ..if equity is everyone getting a go every day.. redefining public education becomes revolution of everyday life.. aka: global equity).. tech as it could be.. 2 convos as infra:

convo w others


convo w self

every day.


not just chatter…

but conversation/communication

calling/inviting each other to exist….

a nother way.. (org’d around legit needs)


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

p 107

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.

p 173

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

p 44

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)..

p 46

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.. orland bishop law

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.

that matters.



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.

curiosity and decision-making




in Zeynep Tufekci‘s twitter and tear gas


on turkey closing internet – forcing private networks.. (giving up surveillance but curtailing wider convo)..

it appears that an unfettered convo is considered to be a bigger risk than lack of surveillance capacity

socially beneficial use of the data stream our online meanderings leave behind,

as opposed to current use to advertise to us?I could get behind that.

this system isn’t facilitating our growth. there’s gotta be a better way to have conversations. we aren’t listening to every side of the story and seeking to learn how to connect, heal, and grow rather we abuse neglect and shame each other. i’m up, free the bros! thank God

ie: 2 convers as infra.. (org’d around legit needs)


imagine if we just focused on listening (aka: undoing hierarchical listening) to the itch-in-8b-souls.. first thing.. everyday.. and used that data to augment our interconnectedness.. we might just get to a more antifragile, healthy, thriving world.. the ecosystem we keep longing for..

what the world needs most is the energy of 8b alive people
