[iDC] hello all

I've been trying to keep up with all that's going on here. Hi  
Christiane! And hi Jonathan! (I know - I have to call that gentleman  
about getting up to Berkman for a brownbag.)  My own complication has  
been a mom on her deathbed, and no other family around. But I'm sorry  
not to have been participating more actively.

I'm no longer exactly sure what I'm going to speak about, as the last  
hundred or so emails on the list pretty well summarize my own  
headspace on issues of digital labor. I may go back and look at money  
as a medium, just to make sure that is all on the table for other  
discussions. Without recognizing the biases of centralized currency,  
extraction of value from labor doesn't really have a context.

Or maybe the successive disconnects from the real, and how digital  
technology seems poised to disconnect us further.

In any case, I'm looking forward to this one - and haven't said that  
(honestly, anyway) about a conference in many many years.
