Stephan and I spoke tonight somewhat briefly of the current FLNW3 consortium.....appreciatively, reflectively.....with a considered and mindful series of recollections of times had and shared from similar such events in the past.
I've followed the Flickr feed, watched the wiki grow, listen to mutterings in Twitter and been sent the odd snippets via email and up to now havent felt compelled to say much until tonight.
It's good to see Leigh, Sunshine, Nancy, Micahel, Derek etc. enjoying each others company and really great to see some visuals of other parts of the world I'm yet to visit. It's also a powerful set of concepts and ideas being thrashed about in the context of the conversations that are bound to be shared as a result of the trip.
So despite my musings in the past as to whether electronica had a soul it seems that the myth of the perpetual white holiday is exactly that. We are glad to see things have deepened beyond travel notes and even better to "feel" that things are connected.
".......Connection, even love, sustains over distance when we make the choice and
intent to do so. "
