I find that I need to be prompted in a manner that has an easy 'return to' button which is why I like the listserv.  I found I can get the same thing by setting up monitoring in the wiki-space. I am sent notifications with changes that are occurring and after a little while of simply reading them as they come in I've been organically catching up on the whole discussion space.  You wiki users probably know this but for those of you who don't, try it. In the meantime Roger please amplify this message:  You are progressing ideas, collaboration and connectivity - in this context slow, out of phase feedback is not an algedonic response.

Subject: connectivity

Everyone,

I, like all of you, am an individual. Metaphorum is a place for individuals to dip their toes in and out of.

It does a certain job - which for those who are just dipping their toes in and out of is fine. But for others who want to progress ideas/thinking/understanding might be different.

I wish to progress ideas, collaboration, connectivity. And I value the core ides of SB (as well as others, whom I consider as important for an understanding of  Stafford),

We have set up a wiki space around these apparently core ideas. Are people interested in this? Or is it of no interest? I know some peple are interested, but how about you others?

Unfortunately, the more findings come out about Web 2.0 and 3.0 the more it becomes apparent that the potential is in statistical-scale usages. And we are a VERY SMALL COMMUNITY. The problem with that, is that psychological factors (nervousness, frustration, irritation....) dominate, whereas in a very large scale on-line community these factors take second place.

This isn't a moan. but I wondered whether anyone else had any thoughts?

Roger
