BOKE/BOOK FRAGMENT:


"Call the openness
of an interaction

to being affected
by something new

in a way that quali-
tatively changes
its dynamic nature

relationality."


PARABLES FOR
THE VIRTUAL

"Do you think
me a learned,
well-read man?

... Not at all.
I have simply
grasped one thread
which links up
the rest.

BOKE BAP ROOM

BOKE/BOOK FRAGMENT (KEY FRAME):

The rhetor's successful intervention in the affairs

of the polis
... are the product of the rhetor's ability

to seize the advantage in a given situation --

to overreach and redefine boundaries

that are social, political, and economic.

That act of overreaching changes not only the polis,

but also the rhetor ... [p 27]
RHETORIC RECLAIMED



"The Uses of Rhetoric in a Technologic Age"

Rhetoric starts

from the assumption

that there are

meaningful truths

"about the things which

are just and unjust."

... [It] is concerned with

truths that

are variable

and obscure,

and permanently

subject to dispute.

WHEN LAW GOES POP:
The Vanishing Line between
Law and Popular Culture

by Richard K. Sherwin

The poetic is
an attribute;
verse is
a technical form.

 

... when language is

in a state of rhythm ...

it is verse.

"The intention is not a fixed ideal form, but a process

of synthetic utilization and transformative integration ...

It's got to take you and keep you with/in the process

of becoming what it is itself. Nowhere to get, of course,

nothing ever finally resolves. Things take form and then

disintegrate to reconstruct, reassemble, rearrange in

in another temporary configuration. The point is to

work with that continual rearrangement, the

redefinition." -- Johanna Drucker, "Process Notes"

DAVID PUTNAM: "One senior Hollywood executive recently told me

that in his opinion the best-known names and the highest earning

stars of 2005 and 2010 would not be traditional movie stars at all,

but a-still-to-emerge generation of teachers ..."

AN INTERACTIVE EVENT DESIGNER/ORCHESTRATOR OR PILOT.
Good teachers will SEE better what I mean by that than others.]

"I am convinced that writing verse

is the best of all preparations ..."
