CYSWIK (originally posted 1-24-2009)

I attended the workshop Can You See What I Know? (http://cyswik.blogspot.com/) presented by the Virtual Knowledge Studio in Amsterdam (http://www.virtualknowledgestudio.nl/). If you have time to watch the videos you can see me eating (tuna-salad sandwich) in the first one, and in the second one I actually get to talk about disturbance as a catalyst for knowledge acquisition. At least, that’s what I meant to say.

CYSWIK was a remarkable two-day event, bringing together artists and scientists and humanists for discussion and learning. It was a socially difficult activity because of the different vocabularies and modes of thought across the domains. But I think we all learned an immense amount, about ourselves especially.

A brainstorm with Charles van der Heuvel of the VKS (http://www.virtualknowledgestudio.nl/staff/charles-van-den-heuvel/) will lead to a collaboration on what we are so far calling an “idea collider.” I hope this will incorporate the ontological footprint technique. Stay tuned for updates.
