ONE OF THE MOST CHERISHED behaviours I witness involves the transfer of skills between generations. Sometimes this happens around the kitchen table as we make things. Continue reading

LIKE SIX OTHER people I have closely followed for more than a decade, I will also delete Facebook. I suspect the two primary school students in our household will never use it. More: https://www.spreaker.com/show/2663090 Continue reading

I CAUGHT UP WITH a few voices at the end of 2018 because they dropped into my podcatcher when using old RSS feeds I set up years ago. Some of the familiar voices continuing using the #audio365 hashtag. Continue reading

MY 2019 started without a hangover because I stayed clear of alcohol during the previous three days. Instead, I was self-medicating against a cold by infusing mass quantities of things like lychees from Martin's Fruit & Veg in Clonmel. The first day of the year also arrived with a nagging text from my broadband provider because I'm 125 euro behind in my monthly payment. I used the money for Christmas presents instead this year.

Funnily enough, some of the pathfinders who led me into Twitter 12 years ago have dumped FB and downshifted into private spaces. I talked about this with Dermot Casey on one of my posts: https://www.insideview.ie/2018/12/congversation-1806.html What do you use to read blogs? I bought Inoreader but for more than just a feed reader.

LIKE DERMOT CASEY, I believe every vibrant community has both an authentic virtual layer underpinning its physical real world presence. I suspect this idea will emerge as a talking point during #cong19, an unconference with a theme of "community". I met up with @dermotcasey in Dublin to chat about several ideas that form the core of Congversation 06, a podcast supporting people I've met during huddles in Cong, County Mayo every November. Continue reading

ONE OF THE MOST insightful conversations I enjoyed in 2018 came inside 1784, a Third Space of Michelle Gallen. Michelle shared a wide assortment of ideas with me about community, book recommendations, and the status of her stealth project. It's all part of the 15 minute audio recording I shared on Spreaker.

Ian, it will be interesting to see how many of the 88 people I had on my Blogroll return to decentralised sharing. There's more dirt to pile onto both Facebook and Medium in the months ahead but I don't hold up much hope for people to leave the convenience of easy discovery and frictionless sharing on the big networks.

I'VE WATCHED PETER DONEGAN and listened to his Sodshow for eight years so I know his clever public spaces always work as places where people enjoy meeting and sharing. Peter discusses the essence of gardening as a community dynamic in Congversation #4 on the lead-in to #cong19 in County Mayo. Continue reading

Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff on your own URL. I think having your own space is part of having your own identity.

ONE OF THE JOYS of being connected online is getting to meet offline and chatting about shared values. I got a half hour of face-to-face chat with @larrygmaguire and learned more about his iron skillet, the importance of having a quiet third space in your own car, and what lies ahead for readers of The Artist's Manifesto. It's all part of Congversation 12, an audio series promoting community for the annual Congregation Unconference. Continue reading

ARMED WITH MY Rode Smart Lav+ lapel mics, I caught up with two friends in Cong who were sharing ideas while thinking about community. You can hear the Congversation with Joan Mulvihill (above) and Tracy Keogh (below) by playing the audio clip below or by subscribing to a special podcast series in the run-up to #cong19 on the 22nd of November 2019.

ALTHOUGH I KNEW the importance of making and holding eye contact with people, after talking to Mags Amond about the most thoughtful kinds of engagement, I became more aware of the possibilities of enjoying better teaching and learning just by focusing on eyes around a table. Mags introduced me to this idea during a Congversation I had with her on a windy day in Ireland. Continue reading
