To My Future Self…

… sorry about this blog. It was the best I could do with the information I had at hand at the time. Oh and keep up the yoga, your future future self will thank you for it. Heh.

I subscribe to mwesch (lecturer who made the Machine is Us/ing Us) – one of the few RSS subscriptions thats actually worth checking out regularly IMHO.

Participatory Observation – his anthropology students have to participate in YouTube. Amazing video, if you see nothing else this year, see this. But as always, your mileage may vary (ymmv).
… and the ‘future self’ is the one that will come back next week, next month, next year and read what we are writing now. The long tail of content leading us from today’s profile to tomorrow’s identity. Makes you think, no?

Too much in this video, jam packed, but worth the discovery.
