Kate Wood commented on Michael Alexeevich Popov's blog post Ethnic identity as natural phenomenon
"One thing that springs to mind here, reading this, is that the quoted passage makes a classical error of conflation of national and ethnic identities. This is quite common, and I'm not condemning anyone for making it, but I do think it raises a…"

OAC Survey [meta]

Hi everyone. I just wanted to direct your attention to a relatively short survey on the OAC (both this site and the Facebook group). This survey is part of an effort by a team that includes Keith Hart, Ryan Anderson, Fran Barone, and me. In response to both a changing technological platform and changing flows in social interaction and communication on the site, we think it's time to reassess what we're doing with the site, as well as more generally what a 'social network' means in the context…See More

Kate Wood replied to Keith Hart's discussion From the Center for Peripheral Studies "Lance Armstrong: The Reality Show (A Cultural Analysis)" and other stories
"Jessie, The facile answer is that, of course, none of these terms exist external to our own mental world - "environment", "nature", and "ecosystem" all refer to cognitive constructs that organize the world around us…"

"Mark, I'd recommend others, like Stefana Broadbent, rather than Danny Miller, on this particular topic. Broadbent's work is all about how digital is different from mass media - particularly interesting is her work in its enabling role in…"

"Mark, As a follow-up, because I'm a big fan of free reading material, here's Nardi's work (and it's 'night elf priest', which is what I get for being too lazy to walk to the bookshelf).  My life as a night elf…"

Kate Wood replied to Keith Hart's discussion From the Center for Peripheral Studies "Lance Armstrong: The Reality Show (A Cultural Analysis)" and other stories
"Mark, I was actually referring to digital anthropology, which is a terribly new and IMO under-developed baby field. STS is indeed more use understanding the physical processes of science of the last century than the communicative dilemmas of this…"

"Mark, I agree that neither Ingold nor Bateson engage with modern technology particularly well, though I'd suggest that criticism could be levelled at more anthropologists than not. Our lifeworld-models barely account for mediated communication…"

Kate Wood replied to Keith Hart's discussion From the Center for Peripheral Studies "Lance Armstrong: The Reality Show (A Cultural Analysis)" and other stories
"Mark, These are all indeed very valid questions, and are actually pretty common critiques. I am not as familiar as I would like, but I've been reading an awful lot of it recently so I'll attempt to answer them as best I can! Ingold's…"

Kate Wood replied to Keith Hart's discussion From the Center for Peripheral Studies "Lance Armstrong: The Reality Show (A Cultural Analysis)" and other stories
"Jessie and others, Ingold's project generally - in Making as in his other works - is to situate the practice of craft in an anthropological context as well as in an ecological context. This arises from two different issues. The first is that he…"

"John, Two things come immediately to mind: 1) The situation in the USA and in Asia is somewhat different. In Asia, people are returning to lack of professional jobs they've trained for. For example, you train to be a software engineer, get…"

Kate Wood replied to Keith Hart's discussion New online seminar 9-21 September -- Lee Drummond "Lance Armstrong: The Reality Show (A Cultural Analysis)"
"Lee and others, Thank you for the wide-ranging discussion of the last few weeks, from one of the aforementioned lurkers. Just in closing, I'd like to ask a provocative question (I hope) about the actual topic of the paper: what if…"

Kate Wood replied to Keith Hart's discussion New online seminar 9-21 September -- Lee Drummond "Lance Armstrong: The Reality Show (A Cultural Analysis)"
"Actually, I think Lee has a point. Why was Lance Armstrong busted? Blood doping (and other things) were against the rules. But why were they against the rules? There are two kinds of rules in sports, as far as I can tell (and keep in mind, I'm…"

"hi Keith, Just to clarify, a) I don't feel you dumped anything in my lap. I made an observation, and we followed a thread to see where that went. That's a thing that should happen.   b) Sorry I wasn't clear, it's not really…"

"I dunno; probably a forum, but I actually think the existence of both "forums" and "groups" is one of the main problems of this site, since they're intuitively the same thing but work differently :) If we want to maximize…"

"Why don't we, in the way of a test, set up a "Hot button issues" group, and go at it with fresh eyes? See what we can do with it, what the underlying technique will let us do and what constraints we find, what is helpful and what is…"
