they are bigger than us, I mean, they live in a bigger, stretched out time-scale, hundreds, maybe thousands of years...
we find them abstract, as we look at them from our "concrete" flesh-n-blood perspective, but it's just a matter of perspective, they're just as real, our stuctures - interwoven.
"we", as bodies, host them, through generations, through learning, through ideas and traditions.

is it possible to choose, to change your hosted ghost? is it moral?
how do they travel?

we have to, as responsible citizens of the planet earth, find better non-hostile means to communicate, with our ghosts

Caleb Gattegno, divides a learning process into 4 stages,

Claiming that only Awareness is transferable (to the student). Implications are interesting, as teachers and as learners.

  • 1. Awareness, realising that there's something new to be learnt, this is essential, thus, a great responsibility of a teacher
  • 2. Feedback stage: exploration, making mistakes, ends when success is met with total presence
  • 3. Transition: from being able to perform something with total attention, to an actual automatic skill, where attention can be brought forth to other things
  • 4. Transfer: Being able to transfer the knowledge to other skills. learning to run using your experience in walking, etc.

Gattegno specifically explored language-acquisition, and math teaching


He also marks an effort measurement unit he calls 'ogden'

See also : "The Role of Sleep in Language Learning: What I Learned as a Silent Way Teacher"
/ Bruce Ballard
In April, 1986, Dr. Gattegno published a newsletter titled "Sleep Revisited" (available from Educational Solutions). In it he reviews scientific research on sleep and offers his own insights. He criticizes much of Western research because it analyzes sleep solely from the outside, i.e., by observing others as they sleep. The research tradition also considers sleep as merely a fatigued reaction to each day's events. For many years Dr. Gattegno followed this path himself until he realized he could make more headway by viewing sleep as a continuous experience that begins at birth and is punctuated by periods of wakefulness. He also conducted experiments on himself while he slept."

Conway's Law: [ Systems' structure reflect the social structure]
"organizations which design systems ... are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations"
Thus analyse a projects structure, and consider certain social reorganisations.

I find Melvin Conway comment - simple, trivial, and (thus) inspiring;;
On to Melvin's page, where he claims that until we manipulate software using the 'hand-eye-loop', the process would not be "widely understood"::
[ http://www.melconway.com/appmodel/index.html ]

This wildly predicts Brook's-law - adding manpower to an existing project - requires time establish the new (more complex) communication stucture, thus, delays the project. Many interesting aspects.

not totally related laws:

  • Brook's law"adding manpower to a late software project makes it later"
  • Wirth's law[::WP] - "Software is getting slower more rapidly than hardware becomes faster."
  • Greenspun's_Tenth_Rule[::WP] - "Any sufficiently complicated C or Fortran program contains an ad hoc, informally-specified, bug-ridden, slow implementation of half of Common Lisp." ... "Including Common Lisp" (Robert Morris)
  • Zawinski's_law_of_software_envelopment[::WP] - Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can.
  • Parkinson's Law[::WP]Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.
  • Peter_principle[::WP] "In a Hierarchy Every Employee Tends to Rise to His Level of Incompetence."

Why so much focus on Asana practice? we were asked.
1. It's the most measurable form of Yoga practice. Being measurable,
makes it's easier to advance
2. Asanapractice helps differentiate the observer (seer, Purusha) from
the observed (object), thus helping the observer not to indentify with
the flux of contentiousness.
[ As in the Yoga-sutra : 1.3,1.4:: "Then, the Witness is aware of
it's own form; otherwise - identifies with the flux of
contentiousness" ]

  • . signal processing - reconstructing a signal using only

    listen to the magnitude spikes! most *information* - is still there,
    it's the *timing*, it's the spaces in between the samples

fridays' 13 rocks! can't go wrong with that.

The 'Social Coding' slogan is great!
but is this it? is this the 'facebook of coding'? the 'flickr' of coding?
We need something like, for 'casual coding', when one could categorize a 'project'(let) under a title ('physics', arithmetics-tricks, audio-hacks, whatever), you would have your 'friends' and groups, which would be social, and not necessarily 'project related',
ie, a 'speech-synth' group, a 'ray-tracing' group, were one would deploy simple lil hacks, there would be a comments or releases, etc...

oh well.

זכרונות. לונדון, תשרי 2009, בסוכה של דוד שלי.


Memories. London, in my Uncle's Suka.
Sukkot, October 2009, [Tishrey 5770].
Late evening.
My uncle and I, sitting in the Sukkah, reminiscing. He's telling me
about him and my mother being kids, about my mum being a little
rascal. We talk about how the world's changed beyond comprehension
since he was kid, since I was a kid.
About him and my mum scanning ShortWave-radio, to find classical music
from Balkan radio stations.
Then I recall - I did the same - scanning shortwave-radio, we talked
about how the internet's changed the world, both access, and ease of
Morning, I wake up, my head full of vivid memories of childhood and
the 'media', last-night's talk did the thing.
I think I'm eight year old, it's the mid 1980's; Me and my friend
Doron, publish a (very-local!) newspaper. We write 2 short
fiction-stories, a quiz, a maze, draw a centre-fold poster of some
monster, and promote our new radio-show. We write it together, then
copy 10 copies, by-hand. I recall being very pleased about how the
monsterboy centrefold looks different of each and every copy. Then we
hand the copies, each at thier own school, to friends. We've made
three-monthly-issues I think. I especially remember the style of the
centrefold drawing, and how we developed it together, each copying the
other's drawing.
Our radioshows: So we had this radio, and I had a microphone, I used
to scan shortwave-radio for hours and hours as a kid, mostly on
saturday mornings, I would sit with my headphones, listen to the
'flying-saucer' sounds go across when turning the dial. then I started
playing with the microphone feedback. then I started recording them.
Later-on, the young mr. Falke joined me, we started interviewing
one-another, tell stories, I would always cut into the sound-effects,
and sometimes put on a Jean-Michel-Jarre tune from my mother's
collection... come to think of it, it was kindof a 'proper radio
show', considering we were 9 or 10 at the time.
We couldn't broadcast it, so we would make copies on a doublecassette,
and distribute it in class, sometimes I would use the doublecassette
to play in double-speed (the copying option), and record the
double-speed-Jarre tune with a microphone, playing with some
mic-location and room-sound...
Our magazine promoted the radio-show, and vice-versa. I recall not
making enough copies of the radioshows, lacking cassettes, and
probably collecting tapes, and overtaping the next-shows.
I really wonder whether I could find one of these show in my mum's Boydem.
London, 2009 again.
My uncle and I tell stories about people surviving the war; admittedly
what you call holocaust stories.  Talk about the neighbourhoods where
each of us grew up, and how much Yiddish was being heard. I was still
hearing lot's of poor kids shouting Yiddish, three month ago.
