Thanks for doing this Reza, I am glad it was a useful suggestion. I am happy to see the site developing organically, with a prod here and there. One modest suggestion is to shift the recent entries to a higher position on the side bar. Another, though I sense this is in the pipeline, is a glossary - Hyperstition for Dummies ...

And perhaps an MSN-chat kind of function might be of use to divert some of the social chatter away from more dedicated Hyperstitional research, theory and propagation.

Maybe Nick will say I am being overly managerial, but from the point of view of a newcomer these posts and accompanying threads can be a lot to wade through - and in fact offputting to potenially excellent particiants - even with the clustering into themes.

I am not against chatter, but def. keen to isolate good content since then it resonates far more intensely.

Perhaps a number of bulletin boards too, where people can post open questions, or initiate threads, since most contributions are comments to posts by a select few.

Anybody else put off by MSN?

am I the only one to think that the basic blog-model of chaotic, rhizomatically-intricated serial disorder also has something going for it? As long as all these structures can run alongside that basic model....

obv. i've been hiding out of shame over completely pathetic contribution on this front - thanks for tolerance Reza - great to see this taking shape so impressively

Tachi - 'managerial' - we don't need no steenking management ;)

thanks "R" (is this a new cover, or you found dropping the "eza" stops you from being qabbalistically aligned with poetic piet?)

u/c - "chaotic, rhizomatically-intricated serial disorder" - if only it was that chaotic! IMHO, due to the serial structure of the blog, and its gluey scalability, it is far too static to be truly chaotic. If threads and posts were growing in weird places and hyperconnections emerging to shape-change the whole blog then let chaos reign ...

... though Nick would have me endorsing an 'un'management approach, perhaps. Guess there is a difference in managing a project and managing to fuck it right up ;)

Reza - seems to be OK now (so i'm running out of excuses)

Reza - "Any suggestion for an exclusive tag appropriate for the West/Jay draco-spiralism?" - Is Jay a Blobite? If so, think we could use the Blob as a holding area until we get more specificity on their erratic communications ...

Reza - "What?!!!!!!!!" - a (dust) mite over-excited?
Checking email ...

Reza - "who can resist ...?" who would even try?
"you sly capitalist infidel" - flattery will get you nowhere ;)

Reza - as you no doubt realize by now, definitional stuff terrifies me to the point of (almost) total paralysis - if you feel up to writing brief decriptions, please do

PS. Def. of hyperstition, while still terrifying, clearly necessary, so i'm not chickening out of that crate of worms

Posted by: nick at February 23, 2005 03:39 PM



we'll get you to nail 'hyperstition' to the board nick. no chickening out allowed. this is an order from da management!

reza - noticed a broken link on following page:

Machines are digging (Holey Space and H.P. Lovecraft)

involving this link: ‘( )hole Complex’


looks like you need to remove the space.

Reza, Tachi. Thanks so much for doing this. Believe me, it is truly a blessing. I don't know where I would be without this thing that you have done. Which reminds me, does either of you have a light? I only ask because I care. Ah, the daisies are dripping with dollops of deliverance. But really, what's the point, he said sharply. In the knock-knock-who's-there-fill-in-the-blank mentality of this day and age, why do we ever give a flying fig about anything? Or nothing?
