The current format may be getting too restrictive for the increased traffic, so thanks for experimenting with other, perhaps more expansive ways.
19 Mar 2002 @ 04:05 by ming : Expansion
Yeah, I'm looking for both how we can specialize more, and how we can reach bigger groups, and how we might be accommodated in our different styles and preferences in how we communicate, all hopefully in ways that lead towards greater clarity, and not chaos.
19 Mar 2002 @ 04:10 by istvan : Emphasis on subjects
What i have in mind is more emphasis on the subjects of research and interest of individuals on particular objects?; if this makes any sense.
Somewhat like this:
"when no discriminating thoughts arise,
the old mind ceases to exist.
When thougt objects vanish,
the thinking-subject vanishes,
as when the mind vanishes,objects vanish.
Things areobjects because of the subject (mind);
the mind (subject) is souch because of things (object).
Ubderstand the relativity of these two
and the basic reality: the unity of emptiness. (Sengstan)

A notice board could have very cryptic messages linking out to more detail .
everyones posts would be on the same window making it easier than this news page.
That would be very useful although it starts to lose the effectiveness once it gets too big. A searchable database so you can load up archived topics?
Don't know about messengers though, I have found them a perfect recipe for getting nothing whatsoever done for long periods.
19 Mar 2002 @ 04:25 by jstarrs : Ming, what about...
...a short descriptive/headline of the latest posted Newslog item next to the Newslog title? Just a thought...

facilitates use of AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, jabber, IRC and Email. Haven't really used it long enough to know if it really works. Would be interested in trying out the instant messaging. The only one I've signed up for is Yahoo.
19 Mar 2002 @ 13:35 by ming : Good suggestions
And as to Instant Messaging, I use it like people in Finland seem to use their cell phones. Not for chatting, but for brief business-oriented messages. Which saves me a lot of time, in that I can stay on top of a lot of things at the same time. Whereas I can only have one phone conversation at a time and it takes much longer. And I'm very sensitive to not having anybody misuse my Instant Messaging channels. No striking up of smalltalk conversations. Much too valuable a medium for that. For me at least.

Thanks very much for the headllines on the logs, Ming - I think it works, no?
20 Mar 2002 @ 04:36 by ming : headlines
Yeah, I think it helps in better knowing what new you'll find before you enter into a news log.
20 Mar 2002 @ 14:10 by jewel : Headlines
I don't see the headlines!
20 Mar 2002 @ 14:15 by jewel : subjects and objects dancing into one
what zendancer writes above... the idea of a 'global brain' where all the info. can be accessed/ shared cross-platforms, cross-databases, cross-circles and cells of info.... from place to place... I like the idea of how the links can be illustrated, immed. accessed on a screen, or stream of screens where all the synapses can be SEEN.
I hate having to go thru the hierachy of how the info. is categorized.. so laborous.... I want to see the design, the synchronicity.... like, what we talk about here is relevant to other groups I am in... how can these notes tie in to other relevant conversations on other flat pages... how can the dimensions be shown, seen? Does it all have to be so flat and logical... how we link it all...that is the buerocracy of current information, is it not????
20 Mar 2002 @ 14:35 by ming : Information hierarchies
Yeah, I think we need to evolve beyond having to buy into somebody else's hierarchy of how information should be organized. Rather I think we should be able to each do it our own way, and still interact in meaningful ways. Doesn't mean it is easy to make a system like that. Like here in NCN, I've made the list of Subjects, which is never going to be perfect for everybody. But it is better than no categorization at all. And gradually we can evolve things towards that we can cross-relate and organize things at our whim.
The headlines we were talking about above is just that I added the title of the latest article to the listing of news logs in the Communicate page.
