  1. Sitting by a Lake “borrowing ” a neighbors open network and saying that would like to be there and here at the same. Given one real choice I am here, learning the ways we can be both places at once. And thinking of the Firesign Theatre ode “How can you be in two places at once when you’re not anywhere at aaaaa-alllllll.”

    Maybe next time we can setup that live video link so that Bald Guy on Climate Change can join you for from the fronts of climate change. Bald Guy intends to be that aspect of Now or Never that is immediate feeds of content from the field. See you next week at PodCamp. I hope to make Sunday.
