Not the Akashic Record

i have an obsession with social networks.  Done right, they are a revolutionary tool of immense power.  And of course, so far, we are not really doing them right.  We are great at sharing vignettes of our lives our inviting people to events, but they are doing little to organize us by affinities or meet the real needs of the participants.

A friend screwed up an entry on FB and then chastised co-self in a  subsequent entry.  I recommended that they delete both entries and put in just one corrected one.  Just like i encourage people to defriend regularly, i want to support the idea that FB is not the Akashic records (where all knowledge  is saved) and instead is a dynamic graffiti wall, where stuff goes up and down quickly.  Dont blink you’ll miss it.

Akashic records circa 1250 AD

Akashic records 2.0 circa 2011

PS dont bother searching for the mistaken post, they deleted both their entries and mine chastising them.  So on a good day, the revolution is self correcting.

    yes 2 all of that! waiting for and expecting perfection is a disgusting idea. the revolution is always in the moment. don’t worry too much about organizing it. it is, so just be. . . revolutionary. a butterfly flaps her wings and half way round the world that ripple effect becomes a hurricane. yes?

    I’m so glad you’ve gotten photographic access to the Akashic Records. Can you find the librarian?

    @Mr bird: perfectionism is the enemy of progress and political change.
    @Kelpie: Turns out there are lots of beautiful pictures of the Akashic Records, just go to google images. More proof that these things once thought impossible are just a mouse click away.
