as whomever is watching this blog might have noticed, the remix has become mildly obsessed by 3 symbolic activities: grafitti, locks and insects.
this may seem like an unconventional approach to an examination of open source initiatives, but the symbolic linkage is as follows:
graffitti is as ephermeal as breath (walls breath paint, cans litter abandoned lots, admission is zero, stray random retinas pass by and occasionally ingest the symbolic info)
locks are ubiquitious. tonite after typing this note, i will exit the building thru 2 locks, unlock my bike, pass thru several traffic lights (motion locks), stop, relock bike, unlock 3 more doors and fall asleep...such is life...can life exist without membranes?
insects are the original bugs, their activity is both communal and deterministically beautifully and abysmally selfish. i believe humans are not qualitatively different. what is considered to be the emergent behavior of ego-based consciousness continues to be impacted by the lovely reptilean cortex with all its sinewy demands for get and keep and keep more....
