Happy 2022: Points for systems resonance

2021 was a year of polarization and increased impacts by digitalization on culture. This post presents ‘points of resonance’ (Dartur 2020) to inspire transitions towards improvement at this time of continued change in the so-called knowledge age.

Emacsconf2021: Dialogic learning how to learn through the Emacs tool

I can think of very few contexts in this hurried ‘great reset’ (to assume the urgency of Schwab & Malleret 2020) where we have the reflective/reflexive privilege to focus on the meaning/ethos of our digital tools. Such an opportunity is thanks to the EmacsConf2021 organizers and support team.

EmacsConf2021: Emacs as design pattern learning

I will be giving a talk at this year’s EmacsConf2021 that was an indirect exercise in considering the new wave of programming that is upon us.

Digital networks and literacy syllabus 2021

This course, in the tradition of American self-discovery and the maker-mindset, carries forth the pedagogical questions of ’Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?’ (Gauguin in Trocmé-Fabre) as we care-fully find our way in an increasingly interconnected, uncertain world that is the new electronic frontier.

A back-to-school/GTD Emacs journey

This post is a beginner’s continued journey to Emacs (mostly org-mode) and discusses: programming as a journey, Beamer for PDF control, mind map tools (metaphors for programmers!), using org-capture to plug-and-play, using Websters, advanced table export, and a little more.

Free Software and philosophy

This paper explores the threat of the erasure of knowledge, which Stiegler (2018) sees as characteristic of the Anthropocene, and which is understood in this paper as an educational concern with respect to our shared understanding and use of digital tools. The problem of the ‘bringing forth’ of knowledge is related to Heideggerian (1977 [1949]) poeisis. But where Heidegger lacked the courage to act, Stiegler raised the question of how to act and live care-fully, through neganthropic pharmakon as provisional treatment in the disautomatization of individual and collective production and consumption.

How to survive disruption?

The future belongs to those who are capable of producing a new theory of becoming and of creation of bifurcations into becoming creating futures – Bernard Stiegler

21st Century relational backgrounding for technical and professional communication

A link to my AELFE-TAPP2021 conference paper.
It outlines how my courses include a backgrounding in the social and material contexts of students as well as the contexts of technical and professional content, which together cater to the development of 21st century skills.

On Cyber Utopia...

What civilization do we want to build in the 21st century? What kind of solidarities will we have need of in a world that is as of now interdependent? What will the place of the human being be in a world increasingly dominated by abstract machines and logic? – Philippe Quéau, former head of the French National Audiovisual Institute
