More ... or less...on the assignment

Who would have thought that Aldon would have limned the connection between blogging and
Beckett? Sorry. Wrong Beckett.

Here is what Aldon, mistaking me for an organized professor, has said: "Colin’s students have a great exercise for the coming week. Colin writes, “I don't know EXACTLY what the theme is, just what I want you to read and think about, until we DO know what the theme is”. Well, perhaps that gets to some of it. It is about Emergence. The human condition is to read and think until we do know what the theme is. It is what we do while waiting, and blogs are yet another place where we read, write and think, while waiting. "

Yes! That's exactly what I was thinking. Yeah, that's the ticket.

I would also like to revisit, this week, the whole question of "the personal" in blogs, to say nothing of impudent Brett's final grade.

To add another anology to the thread:
Blogs also (each, and all collectively) resemble how our own minds work, how thoughts lead to other thoughts (and back), and form these coherent (or sometimes not so coherent) webs of connected threads that say something overall, thought it's hard to say what's said overall by a whole day's (let alone lifetime's) worth of thoughts... other than to say the little pieces of the whole reflect off each other (infinitely, even) like the fabled dewdrops of the Hindu 'Indra's web'.

On the personalness value, Elin seems to have struck gold when she oberves that the blog form instills a more careful form of listening than usual, and so is that much more attractive to us asa setting to talk inform of blog. Actually, that's what I oberve in what she says; hope I was listening clearly.

Finally, Brett's grade is of some interest, but what I really want to know is what Aldon's grade will be!

The authorities over at blogspot have this
to say about revealing a little "humanity".

Suggestion is so much more appealing than solicitation. Which is to say, the most interesting part is most often not what you say, but what you don't say.

joe: Interesting coincidence, but Daniel Conover just wrote a long post on the same topic and I wrote a post in response. Check them out. Both contain additional links you may find useful.

eric: Sigourney Weaver rocks!
