our blogs, ourselves

Even though she STILL hasn't learned to make her links work, Patti has nailed down a couple of this week's themes for class.
They have to do with our own experiences writing (and engineering!) blogs -- how did being a writer change being a student? -- and with our experiences interacting with other bloggers.

Here's Patti:

I took David Smith's comment to Colin to heart, "Personalized blogs are like lazy children... they may not be accomplishing much in the real world, but you hope they are osmotically gathering (emitting) some world-wisdom that will pay off some day, and at least today they aren't hating you." I have worked my blog around and around --trying to please an audience, my class and my professor. I decided with two more classes left that I would please myself and if I decide to retain and continue the blog it will be mine and mine alone. I may not have accomplished much through the blog but through others blogs I have learned so much.Here's a link to something that has crossed my mind, puzzling me these past few months--
I fixed the goddamned link for "swarm logic". Has this theory come true through "Blogging On"? Have 15 or so naive students become more tuned in to the blogosphere through our interaction within it rather than through watching it from afar? Some have willingly become a part of this ant hill, some of us have moved forward to our own ant hill while yet others have settled comfortably within a predisposed "frontier" place. I am still uncertain of where my particular place is--but I know one thing for certain--I will never be alone there--and neither will you!

Swarm logic reminds me of something that's been kicking around in my brain the last week or so. Anyone ever heard of "the 100th monkey"?

Here's the story straight from the spirit guide's mouth, and here's some more information from that killjoy, Wikipedia.

Then, too, there's the chance that most of what emerges collectively on the 'sphere is a little less logical than swarm logic, a little less Jungian than the hundredth monkey. May be more a form of purely random and undesigned and undirected and maybe totally nonutilitarian creative energy if not beauty (I dunno, I'm not a marine biologist, but is a coral reef an apt analogy?).

Too, the connectivity component is looser, less traceable or at least far more nebulous to trace. But every bit as connected. With this in mind my own experiment has lately been to scatter my own blogtime & blogwriting around the threads of other blogs rather than chunking it all in my own, singular blog outpost.
