Like a Tsurezuregusa for a philosophy grad student.
I’m back from DragonCon and the always awesome CPAC. I’d like to thank everyone who showed up to our panels this year, and especially kellysue and laurennmcc for being gracious enough to participate on our panels.
I plan to spend the next week (at least) processing my responses to everything CPAC, as well as working on some new thoughts that occured to me on the drive back from the conference.
Again, thanks to everyone who came by or participated in CPAC panels this year: you all made it worth while.
You can find me at “shengokai.” Gonna be tweeting all of the Comics and Popular Arts Conference and bits of Dragon*Con.
Answer me this: Do you want to have more, or do you want to have More Than? Do you want power, or do you want Power Over?
I’m looking for and working toward making sure that everyone has the ability to do what needs doing in their lives, to create what needs creating, to make a life that’s fulfilling and meaningful for them, when the gain on the “Opinions of Others” knob is turned down as low as it’ll go.
What matters to you? What kind of life do you want to live? What kind of world do you want to live it in? What does it take to make that happen?
