Comment About Comment

Articles appearing in this section will tend to be longer and more considered than those appearing elsewhere. Some will comment on current news and events. But, in general, I'll try to avoid stories of ''this moment'', to concentrate on more substantial issues of our time. I may not contribute much profound or original, but writing about such topics may, at least, clarify my own thoughts.

Projects About Projects

Projects are just sets of activities — related to one another by common goals. But there's really no fundamebtal difference between the two concepts. Because pretty much all tasks or activities have component subsets and project-like characteristics.

To remind me that the seemingly unrelenting stream of hatred, stupidity, anger and fear that I encounter in the media and on the streets is only part of the story. To remind me that good things are happening everywhere. And, ultimately, to reassure me that, despite the detours and reverses, progress towards a kinder, more rational, and more civilised future is still possible.

Dislikes About Dislikes

Most blogs contain criticism of stuff that the author considers wrong, stupid or just plain malevolent. And 'Dislikes' is place for that sort thing on my blog. But I've assigned a dedicated section to it, in part, because I want to keep count of the explicitly negative and reactive — in the hope that I can balance it with more positive and open-ended commentary elsewhere.
