The Seedling # 6: When Worlds Collide

It looks as though 2018 is the year my online life came crashing into my hometown life, in an ever-increasing wave of inevitability. What was it JBP said about surfing? Fortunately only a 12-footer or so as yet. First up, two local news stories: Anonymous complaint stops weekly roast chicken donations Followed by: ‘Eclectic and …

Return of the Fool

  Birds, Fishes, & Hares This year, Easter Sunday falls on April Fool’s Day. I don’t believe in coincidences.

The Pitfalls of Social Grouping and Solar Leadering (Requested Back-Story to Chris Knowles Letter)

Since my last post got linked at Facebook, some readers over there (none over here, evidently) are asking for the back-story.

The danger of adding more information is that people will get lost in the details and start arguing over …
