I would agree with that, but it seems to be the case that either you have a discussion on facebook or you do not. I like Daniel’s idea of perhaps using OE as a log or something. Perhaps a summary could be written for each long FB discussion. Or OE could be used as post discussion, analyzing what has been said, as an attempt to conclude. Obviously, the level of discussion and thinking in the juggling community is extremely low. I am trying to wrap my head around it, really. It is as if people are into discussion, but not very interested in the info that is at hand, such as literature or talking to people that know things, or even finding out who has knowledge in a certain area. When I got interested in juggling history I spent many years trying to travel and meet the few, knowledgeable people there was, and find every single piece of literature. I know that is perhaps a bit extreme, but in juggling there is a complete absence of information seeking, other than facebook threads. Out of all sub cultures or artistic fields I have been involved in, juggling is by very far the least knowledgable in its own field. It would be really great to change that, and I think discussion in a serious manner and trying to organize the information that exists, would be great improvers.
I either get tagged, or someone says something about something I have talked about, or is relevant to my research.
