    One year knowmad
    A year has passed since I passed my own test for being a knowmad. Like many, I have acquired a scattered digital identity. Was just piecing together a few of the links to my digital presence at When I added the link to spacecollective, it reminded me I have not posted here for a long time. And I want to thank you all. So there.

    Occasionally I google myself, no, sorry, the self is not googleable. I google my pen name, nah, the products of the pen or typewriter at best are not googleable either. Once again, occasionally I google my pseudonym (yess, that word works) and here are the current results. (Click at your own risk, I hope it's all about me and all good. ;-) Probing my niche here, image courtesy of Ebon Fisher.

    Update 2011-05-12:

    End of update.

    What is a better digital knowmad equivalent word for name, pen name, pseudonym?

    Just gained more subjective clarity about the logic of the knowmad. In this example, admitting a non-comprehension of a concept gave me a definition in form of a debate, inside facebook of all places. I responded:
    As a newbie to transmedia, the word itself (I work as safety engineer, quality manager), I asked Gunther Sonnenfeld for a definition. He sent me here. Not having title to IP worth mentioning I feel I am neutral and unbiased to share my beginner's take on this. It feels as if we are looking for a holy grail, a border, to define what is transmedia and what is not. Brian Clark gave us a hint with his observation of the transcontinental flavors like East and West and the creative control, degrees of. Transmedia, as I see it now, is not binary: is or is-not. Transmedia is spectrum, more or less, and literally. Language and much of logic have issues with spectrum properties. Words like "trans" start balking when forced into the comparative. Let's put that claim of mine to the test: is what I say here righter or wronger than [insert preferred quote of debate here]?


    The logic of the knowmad

    • is not two-valued, binary, yes/no or on/off or white/black

    • is not three-valued, trinary, yes/maybe/no or white/gray/black

    • is infinity-valued, spectrum, more or less, shades of gray all the way

    How can we use that for collective intelligence, the spectrum of?
