If these guys met to have lunch this is how the conversation would go – it is conversational, introductions are made, people drift in, it is slow to get going, then someone leaves and from time to time it drifts. And there are technical hitches from time to time. This is the beauty of it though, this is not a commercial webinar and it is all the better for it – you feel as if you are part of the inner sanctum.
And what do you learn?
That Google Hangouts work and will kill off Skype.
Elluminate for those who suffer this platform still should have been killed over a long time ago.
Experiencing YouTube transcription is hilarious as the words produced rarely get close. It is oddly compelling though and grabs your attention as you try to figure out how on earth the technology can get it so wrong. Perhaps like the rest of us it required a couple of decades to master the mysteries of the English language.
A narrative transcript doesn’t work. What works far better, and what I attempt here, are notes on what each of the major speakers said. This way you get a sense of their stance and can, I suppose, if needs be, reference them correctly at a later date.
I can’t sit still for one hour; it’s just impossible. 0.29:00 (I know the feeling. I stand at my desk anyway – really. I believe its better for me and rather energizing too).
Virgil ‘They are able because they think they are able’. It is the motivation as well as the preparation.

If my notes are somewhat cryptic then go and listen to the Hangout yourselves – then imagine sitting in the corner of a room at a dinner party and taking notes.
From this I have got in touch with Dr. Lilia Efimova.
I am reading her thesis on blogging.
Passion at work: Blogging practices of knowledge workers (2009)
Doctoral thesis by Lilia Efimova
I’m on a quest to find a topic for doctoral research myself and have blogging under consideration – I’ve kept a diary since 1975 and a blog since 1999 and have had odd occasions of lifelogging and experimental hoarding too … for a single calendar month. As an exercise. Trying to understand what to take and what to ditch, what to store and what to ditch and whether or if a diary, blog or photo means we can declutter and have access to stuff in a more intelligent way.
