We have started each session with one of us standing before the assembled group and introducing us to an "information world" that they are familiar with, but one that may well be new to the rest of us.
This was voluntary and will remain so today: no one was necessarily assigned to do this weekly, though we hope to have learned new things about ourselves and our worlds by having taken advantage of the opportunity.
Let's depart from the assumed framework of information and library science, and begin to think about different ways to think about things entirely.
Was that absolutely necessary? Did we need to wander into physics? Or did it somehow relate to the vector space model of information retrieval?
Thinking forward, backward, and all around, understanding patterns both visible and not.
Should you want to explore more, watch LOMAX The Songhunter Documentary 2004. But not for today; this is something to do when you have the time for it.
