About Me:
My study is empathy as emotional communication. I am coming here from Op Ed News, where the idea of empathy is "giving unto Caesar"

The trick with the Interent

Posted on March 10, 2009 at 9:55am 8 Comments

Is figuring out who has aspergers, and avoiding them.

In life, figuring out who has aspergers is easy, they are rules-based, and will stab you in the back. The trick is getting them out of government so that their corporations can be reorganized with them on the outside.

To introduce Bessa: he started a group at Care2 http://www.care2.com/c2c/group/opednews for the purpose of discussing OEN... it looks like he and I are the only ones there so far. Check it out! Curt- good place to tell your story!

I mentioned briefly the "underground railroad" idea... mebbe we should continue the idea in Lifeboat One (with Curt's permission o course). At least some ideas on how to maintain contact if the Collapse disturbs the net.

Thanks for coming over, John!

Hi John! What a pleasant suprise. Yes, I saw your (headlined) article, or was it a diary(?) where you mentioned the new care2 group. I did have a few wild ideas at first but decided to rid my mind of any negativity. After all, I was reading OEN.

A very warm welcome to you, John. Mi Casa es Su Casa. Rip it up!

Care2? Nope. I've heard of Care2 but really never been there except to ponder over joining or not joining. I'm a veteran of a handful of places, even OpEdNews until being banned for being very unruly...I stand accused of sabotaging fundraising. I'm guilty as accused of course so there won't be any complaints coming from me as a result of that. On the other hand, I've been monitoring the decline of OEN for a short while, close enough to be able to describe what went wrong and why it went wrong. It's basically and most always the same core issue with on-line, amateur journalism : funds, funding, the lack of funds and the funderers influencing the place not to mention the totally massive effort the State Dpt. has put into (effectively) infiltrating the left and the blogosphere, dominating many websites, spreading mis & dis-info and basically taking over / hiding under cover by acting as co-admin or editor or monitor or whatever ...which reminds me, I had a dream last night. Another nightmare. I wish I could put it into words. Thanks for the invite to your Care2 OEN group. I'll have to give it some thought though as I'm spread pretty thin as it is. It's becoming increasingly difficult for me to make the daily rounds. With any luck at all and if I can keep my job, I'll have even less time in future. But that wasn't a negative on that. Oh, about being able to edit comments on Ning.......you can, most everywhere except here on member's pages on the "Comment Wall". Private Messaging works good though in case there's a need to converse without the whole goddamn world looking over your shoulder ...which can be done right here btw but only because this Ning "Network" is open to the public, which is good. I'm pretty much for open doors and zero censorship and the regular use of curse words. I'm kinda hooked on them curse words. I'm off to check out http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Empathy_Model for a sec over a cold brew. Just got in from work and it was a rough day at the office. People & Communication. Not always a winning team ;o)
