Sex in the Rhizome

I am, of course, horrified that I've written nothing on this blog for two and a half months. This is unforgivable. I don't know what to say, but I do know what to write. So let's get to it.

As often happens, I am inspired by a TED talk, this one by Matt Ridley. Let's listen first to the talk:



See what I mean? Don't you see the rhizome in most everything he says? No? Hmm. Perhaps the problem is me, then. I see the rhizome everywhere. It's my new lens. I could throw in a bit of connectivism also. If the rhizome is my right lens, then connectivism is my left. I'll tell you how.

So combination = advancement, and separation = regression. Yes, that definitely has a sexual connotation to it!

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful video, Keith! It certainly serves to emphasize the importance of people being able to communicate with one another clearly in writing and other ways.
