Almost 3:30AM. Instead of sleeping I read the thoughts and followed the connections between the people I’ve been meeting in Montreal. I am so aware of coming in to the middle of a conversation. Into the middle of something that’s already busy and vibrant and been going on for a long time now. And what […]

As promised, here is Part 2 of my report from Webcamp Montreal. Again, only the shiny stuff… If you recall, we were talking about conversations and community. A community has to have: 1. une memoire / a memory 2. des sujets communs / shared topics I relate to the idea of a shared memory. I […]

Before I share my thoughts on RIP: A Remix Manifesto, I want to pass on this quote that some lovely person posted on the Boing Boing post discussing it.
