Episode 177 - Conjecturing on our Inner Practice Makeup (Dave, Jr & Dave, Sr)

This is another ‘Dave & Dad’ talk probing the dynamics of mind and consciousness underlying our Practice behavior.  It went long, so it is offered in two parts.  This conversation is an example of how two people with different knowledge focus on one thing – socially enacted Practice – and see where it leads us.  Live conjecturing.  

Episode 185 - A Conversation can Travel the Universe (Dave, Jr, and his Dad Dave, Sr.)

We resume our conversation about Social Enaction by exploring the infinite nature of consciousness bolstered by imagination. Recording this episode by a Maine lake, we could waft each other’s attention to matters as close as the industriously fishing loon to the looming universe. The practice of conversation edifies and amazes. We (former) Mainers knew the next chance to boggle a Mind started with “Pull up a chair and talk awhile”,

Episode 135 - Conversations grow Communities of Practice (Dave & son Dave)

Here is another episode with a ‘father and son’ talk at the junction of conversation and socially enacted practice. They apply a theory of organizational learning – Communities of Practice – to a lived case in point. Dave’s own emerging field in Library Science – Data Curation and Management – is where his fellow practitioners connect globally to learn with each other what works next.
