Back online

I think someone from City Hall must be admin'ing Blogger.  I got completely locked out of my own blog yesterday...very strange circumstances.

Anyhoo, what I was trying to post was much love to Disenfranchised Citizen.  Drake Toulouse is carrying the torch on Feinberg and Co.  Meanwhile, folks like me have become distracted chasing mice....well....big, nasty, zombie, humanity-destroying mice...but mice nonetheless.

I think if blogs have a true purpose, it's to focus our attention 0110110001101111011011100110011101100101011100100010000001100001011011100110010000100000011010000110000101110010011001000110010101110010 on the things that really matter to our community.  The "next thing" is not always as important as the thing at hand.  Our culture seems to have little long term memory.  Sometimes I wonder if we still have the capacity to concentrate long enough to accomplish anything.

Please read this post, and for that matter, read DC daily.

Is CR still a mouse being chased?

The role of focused attention in learning and human development is something I've become quite interested in lately. The implications for civil society are huge. I think we need to do what we can to bring contemplative practices into our culture, as they tend to foster exactly the skills we seem to lack.
