It builds pictures and images in our life that controls and influences every aspect of our lives.

  3. Publishing Talks: David Wilk interviews Tim O’Reilly In this series of interviews, called Publishing Talks, I am talking to book industry professionals who have varying perspectives and thoughts about the future of publishing, books, and culture. This is a period of disruption and change for all media businesses. Publishing has been a crucial part of human culture for as long as people have been writing and reading. How will publishing evolve as our culture is affected by technology, climate change, population density, and the ebb and flow of civilization and its economics? Publishing Talks interviews help us understand the outlines of what is happening, and how we might ourselves interact with and influence the future of publishing as it unfolds. Publishing Talks interviews give people in the book business a chance to talk about ideas and concerns in a public forum that are often only talked about “around the water cooler,” at industry conventions and events, and in emails between friends. I hope that Publishing Talks interviews will give people inside and outside the book industry a chance to hear about some of the thoughts, ideas and concepts that are currently being discussed by engaged individuals within the industry. It was very exciting for me to have a chance to interview Tim O’Reilly, widely considered to be one of the smartest and most innovative publishers around.

  7. AoC Toolbox | Narrative Building

    The monomyth, or the hero’s journey as identified by mythologist Joseph Campbell, is a pattern that shows up in stories around the world and across cultures — from The Odyssey to Star Wars. We all have a story — a narrative — that informs who we’ve been, who we are, and who we’ll be. But are we making sure we’re in control of how we process this narrative? Are you on a hero’s journey or a fool’s errand? It all depends on who’s authoring your narrative. Shouldn’t it be you? Following the narrative building exercises discussed in this toolbox episode is a good place to start. Lessons learned by the narratives of others don’t necessarily enrich our own narrative — the details that propelled your grandfather’s story may not have a place in your own. It’s important to have a grasp on how we relate to our own narrative; when we’re confused as to who we are, what we want, or what we’re doing, it’s difficult for us to communicate effectively and build rapport with other people.

  8. The Value of Ruins — dConstruct Audio Archive

    Between The Alexandrian War of 48 BCE and the Muslim conquest of 642 CE, the Library of Alexandria, containing a million scrolls and tens of thousands of individual works was completely destroyed, its contents scattered and lost. An appreciable percentage of all human knowledge to that point in history was erased. Yet in his novella “The Congress”, Jorge Luis Borges wrote that “every few centuries, it’s necessary to burn the Library of Alexandria”.
