I think one of the places I got to on this statement was the book as the object (rather than the event of reading and learning). Together with the old Google post about fragmented attention/ rewire, so it is 'harder' to read a book in the same way (? or 'right way').

I stopped reading books when I found my approach was to 'make notes' (in an academic way) and breakdown the text.

If you look at the physical binding then a book is a number of folios (if that is the term) bound together. Or many novels originally being serialised (e.g., Dickens - is there not a story about unrest on the US quayside for the latest newspapers after delays in transatlantic shipping?) so it is also about how the product is consumed.

That was the point I took about the tendency towards the definitive, but only if you accept it.

A truth making machine! I like that. 

Csikszentmihalyi in his systemic theory of creativity tells us that we need a domain of symbols to deviate from in order to create.

What becomes a book, it can be argued, is what the field in a given domain considers its truth and this changes as we add to the domain. Can the internet serve the same purpose? Is it already in some domains?

Ask me when I have had no electricity or cell phone coverage for 3 days due to flooding…many of our virtual conversations seem rather meaningless then and yet I can always turn to my bookshelf and read a book or create a spine poem…

name of article referred to above: 'A SystemsPerspective on Creativity '

So... two people have just signed up for ‪#‎rhizo14‬. One of them asked me, on twitter, whether it was 'too late' to sign up. I responded as you might imagine - the rhizome has no beginning and end, it's all middle - if we're doing the course right, then you should be able to join right now and have a fulfilling experience. Did I lie to her? What can we do to make it less of a lie?

+ThePlanetHorizon (TT) Huh. I did this a long time ago... Let me re-listen.

First 30 seconds defines 'traditional' instructivist pedagogies. So that sets the stage.
Not one thing you need to know. Starting point for negotiation
The catalyst part and the emergent part is a bit repetitive :)
I totally agree that :45-1:15 could have been tighter.
Knowledge network - is about outcomes from a course
Knowledge in the field - that's about MOOCs changing knowledge more broadly

That was done off the cuff (based on the research study we had done) :) the other two videos in this series were done by script.

you do indeed take the analogy with the fire as a conversation starter and make it work in Rhizo14.
