Some Collected Ello Thoughts

Some collected Ello thoughts | I’ve been a bit active in Ello this past few months. I originally had no intention of publishing any original work there but over time I have. And now in an attempt to not lose anything there that’s worth not-losing, I’m mirroring some of them here on my mind-Dumpster.

Is Hierarchy good for Indonesian society?

I mean I know that many traditional regional cultures born within Indonesia are socially structured with hierarchy as a vital element in decision making and leadership. And that–on the other hand–in many urban Indonesian cities there has been many signs which points towards a flattening of hierarchies as a way to break social barriers to opportunities and understanding.

But which mode will provide the best result for Indonesia as an entity? My work with the SBF depends on showing leadership in this area, and we do not think that the current trend of letting it be “decided” by “the market” is healthy at all.

Need more time to fully flesh this out, of course, but I also need to say that I do not see any leadership in this topic. And that if Indonesia decides that this is bullshit and we don’t need any of this kind of thinking, then Indonesia also needs to begin movement towards dissolution, as a way of bringing an end to our Nation’s pervasive undecidedness.

So…I have put some rules in place for myself now. I can’t open Tweetdeck. At all. This service is just too good at pushing me all the information I need to continue in the addiction flow that keeps me from being productive or having a real life. If I’m around people, I don’t open Tweetie (on my iPhone) at all. I focus on who I’m with and if who I’m with checks their tweets, I mention it and I don’t use it as an excuse to check mine (the spiral of anti-social). I can check the web version of Twitter 2x per day…and the exception is if I post a question and need to have a bit of a conversation. When that conversation is over, I need to exit. I know I’ve been told to obsessively follow my @’s, my searches (Whuffie, wuffie, tara hunt, whuffaoke, etc.), but I don’t anymore. This may have me falling behind in places, but I lived for years before it existed and I still have Google Alerts.

Some nice strategies for pulling back from Twitter.. Can be applied to other social networking websites too.
