Third Incarnation

This is the third incarnation for this weblog. A good deal of the last incarnation remains but the name has been changed as has the form. What is now missing for any chance visitor is the apparent rationale or objective of this weblog. The new name provides a better indicator of the intent of this weblog. That is finding for myself paths to new paradigms and making those paths available to others so that they can find their own new paradigms. This is the impermanent portion of this endeavor. There is at this point no great effort in getting this blog in front of a larger audience as its primary goal is to create a vehicle for acquiring knowledge in three basic areas economics and economic development, science and technology, and web 2.0. Being able to pass on that information is a worthwhile though secondary objective. There is still a hopeful dependency upon serendipity in the creation of this weblog.

This has been said before, though now lost and likely never seen, it is going over the same path again. That may be necessary though to learn as T. S. Eliot wrote

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

There is still the desire to re-create the somewhat more permanent structure, found now on the left hand column, containing information of value through connections to high quality websites concerned with social change and economic development, innovation through the application of design via science and technology, and better understanding of the paradigms under which we live and how to change our own so as to make better changes in the world. The question now is how to do that under this new form once this impermanent post fades away.
