Ten days ago my Europe Tour for June 2010 was looking great. The World Cup is coming, and people would rather watch a match than listen to me.

I was scheduled to leave on June 19, and was really looking forward to it. As of today, the tour is cancelled.

They alternate between the US and the rest of the world and this year the conference will be in Brighton, UK.

Green Chameleon » A Brief History of Arrangement

Green Chameleon

Until the 1730s, at least in Europe, the practices of arrangement, classification, categorization, and taxonomy work, were all part of the same cluster of concepts. Born in the same year (1707), Linnaeus and Buffon occupied very different social stations, sat at opposite ends of Europe, and set out opposing positions on the ordering and arrangement of knowledge about species.

So much bloodshed, and while the world is not at war at the moment (thankfully), there’s too much bloodshed still going on in many places around the world. I marvel at the ability of people here and across Europe to move easily between different languages. On Friday evening I left New Zealand and headed to Warsaw. This involved four flights – three with Air New Zealand to get to London Heathrow, and then one with British Airways to get to Warsaw.

Technology: loosing skills through the virtual world?

Joitske Hulsebosch

Our interaction was not virtual, it was physical; it was not restricted to people we wanted to be with, it required us to play (and then work) with people we would not necessarily choose to be with" 'Now if this is the case, and the next generation are only used to operating in a symbolic virtual world, in which they limit their interactions to like minded social groups (and it is at least arguable that this is happening), what will happen when they enter the world of business?'

Internationalism is not globalization

Chris Corrigan

Globalization is the mechanism of standardization that makes is possible for capital to move quickly around the world. Despite that, perhaps the internationalist aspect of Europe still holds hope for peace. Of course the collateral damage is immense and the result means that Britons have cut themselves off from the world’s people’s. I’ve been reflecting on the UK referendum results obsessively for the past couple of days.

There are some amazing people in this world, who are quietly doing amazing things in their spheres of influence and activity. You and I rub shoulders everyday with people who we know in their professional roles, but often when you develop trust and are able to see beyond the world of work, you find heroes doing great things in otherwise undeclared ways.
