Synchronicity

I just found that a new friend was a livejournal user and happened upon the realization that this, almost exactly, is my ten year anniversary. I haven't posted in a number of months but I thought the incredible timing of this was too good to pass up making a post.

I still believe networked blogging, ala livejournal, is the most incredible social networking format that has been created, but it has serious social drawbacks since it is only inclusive to a select group of people who are of the creative class. This, however, creates a special environment that is lively and important.

I will spend the next day trying to think more deeply about how this medium has changed, and become a different space and how it relates to the internet as it has changed in the past 5 years since I did my 5 year analysis of the state of livejournal.

I'd be interested in hearing those thoughts. I lament that LiveJournal has become significantly less active in the past couple years.

very: i saw you

i was looking through MoMA's flickr page and i saw your picture from the abramovic exhibit! i was really shocked to see you but then really happy. i went twice already. today is the last day. anyway, just wanted to say that i saw you (haha, that's not stalkerish at ALL) and also, hi.

so how was it? what was it like?

You're not the only person to see me in that series—I posted the pictures of myself and the people I talked to in line a little while ago. My friend Pat mentioned it again on fb a few days ago. No reason to feel stalkerish...

It was pretty amazing, actually. I have been meaning to write about it, but for now storytelling has had to suffice. There's a short account of the matter on my fb maybe ~2 mo ago. I am tired and moving things at the moment, so perhaps I can write/tell you more later.

btw, I am jealous that you got to go twice. I only just managed to catch the show my last day in NYC. I was there for the Tino Sehgal show, and was so lucky as to catch Marina and the Whitney Biennial also.
