Flock – New Media, New Relevance

[…] when writing for a global audience with a variety of perspectives, being “relevant” is more important than being “authoritative”, and will better encourage a global dialogue. And in order to be “relevant”, writing must not implicitly subordinate cultures that are foreign to its own intellectual tradition. This is not a matter of ethics or morals; it is a matter of being relevant to today’s world.

I’ve been playing with Flock and have made incredible discoveries. New to me…  Technorati, Last. FM, and del.icio.us. Each of these interconnected groups of people with similar interests–these sites go a long way in creating virtual communities and with it comes for me a new way to check in and reevaluate.

The last few weeks I have been reading and writing about Kara Walker, Bill Viola and James Turrell. What I discovered about their work is that each of them work hard to reveal the fallibility of our perceptions. Each of these artist work to reveal alternate or realities to the viewer. That is the relevance of their work–they let the light in.’
