I’ve been doing quite a lot of reading and not much writing the past week or so. I think that’s OK. It’s things I know I’m interested in, just don’t know that much about yet. I think the notes will coalesce into something eventually, with a bit of tending. The note-taking I’ve been doing is a bit too much copy-paste, not enough writing in my own words, so I could probably do with revisiting them a bit.
I’ve noticed some constellations of interest forming around agency, self-determination, networked agency, assemblage thinking, actor-network theory, the actor model. Which tie into my past interests in agent-based systems, and technological and political distributed systems.
Also a strand on meditation, appropriate technology, Buddhist economics, and Schumacher, triggered by the Rev Left Radio episode on Meditation, Materialism, and Marxism. Panda previously recommended Buddhist economics to me.
