πŸ‘ Love and Other Data Assets

Liked Love and Other Data Assets (Jesse Stommel)

We are not data assets. And the work of dialogue depends on that. It begins when we:

β€’ build a community of care
β€’ ask genuine, open-ended questions
β€’ wait for answers
β€’ let conversation wander
β€’ model what it looks like to be wrong and to acknowledge when we’re wrong
β€’ recognize that the right to speak isn’t distributed equally
β€’ make listening visible

From there, we can find tools and technologies that support the project of education, ones that allow us to own our data, delete it at will, and export it easily β€” tools that allow β€œusers” (human faculty, staff, librarians, adjuncts, administrators, technologists, and students) to create our own spaces (and conversations) on and about the Web β€” tools with an architecture of radical openness, love, imagination, hard questions, possibility, and poetry.
