kai talks about tagging alienationg people. what about reverse tagging?

reverse tagging? I ask about feminism tag

guy says that we want

laura – categories exclude. tagging opens up. clouds expand the meaning associations “feminism” but also “women” or whatever – opens it up.

I like that – it’s a way of thought – to fuzzy things up

folksonomy – taxonomies and library subject cataloguing. you put it on. aggregated. some of your tags might disapper.

jay says we dont want polarizing

guy – could someone give eample. i am a luddite.

woman by door – appreciative of tools, what helps us connect race to face?? to be able to et on line and connect – and yet we pass each other on the street and don’t connect n our neborhoods! where does that fit in our whole conversation.

chris -t hat’s why we’re doin this. to get peoplel out from behind our laptops.
guy – that’s the million dollar question

beth – (yell from crowd of blurt!) – menotoring people on internet. software. 300 people. put yourself on map.
liz : is taht Frapper.
beth – yes. me and this other woman discovered we live 2 miles down the road from each other. using the tools and maps there are ways to connect.

raines – i’m shifting from virtual communities to real world communities

chris – virtual/real world
jerry – theory on the table. maybe a bit negative. crisi leads to connections. lazy prosporous self-satisfied. everyone looks at everyohne in crisis. it forces connection. how do we do it without the crisis part?

ken – contexts – invite possibility

chris – wrap up that thouht, we come back to it.
