about social.coop purpose and values
I've added some comments about ''purpose'' to the code of conduct etherpad. This is a parallel from UK business law... capitalist enterprises are no longer required to say what their purposes are. (since the Companies Act 2006) Before 2006 it was enough to write "do any business, and anything necessary to run that business, in the interests of shareholders".
I found this document by @mike_hales in the p2p foundation wiki entry for social.coop https://loomio-uploads.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/files/000/152/026/original/mh_2018_07_01_-_reading_group_notes.pdf ...

Karl Maton speaking to BALEAP in 2017 isn't satisfied with the term "abstract". Semantic Gravity goes from weak at the top - for things that depend less on context for their meaning (the process of photosynthesis), down through general groups of things (flowering plants without woody stems) to strong gravity at the bottom where the meaning is highly linked to a part
The foreword to "De la misère symbolique" contains footnotes to Deleuze, but it begins by stating that it is a continuation of an analysis in « Aimer, s’aimer, nous aimer ».
I think this is enough to identify Stiegler's starting point as located in the "Sovereign" part of the autonomy plane. This means that the writer has high positional autonomy: he's talking about ideas which he has alr
LCT Centre Occasional Paper 1
Saturday's topic is my own knowledge practice in relation to #Moodle and Moodlenet: I often find myself making up analogies with face-to-face teaching to explain the procedures I want teachers to adopt. I elicit responses to hypothetical questions like these: "If you went to all your lessons in a carnival mask, what would happen?" "If you had an invisible assistant who wrote on the blac
Legitimating moral emotions
