pod meeting

EVDB board meeting: Brian Dear, Tom Sammon, Esthr, Steve Jrvetson

  • Steve Jurvetson 10y

    some quality lounging
  • Chris Traweek 10y

    looks like PARC
  • Gisela Giardino 10y

    I like Esthr with the red fiaca and Steve with the blue one.

    Girls will be girls,
    boys will be boys.

    Dear Esther, I expected a different bag, with a sophisticated design...
  • Marjorie Lipan 10y

    Carlos, click on the "suitcase" tag for this photo to see a little of the history of this bag. It has become sophisticated due to its worldly travels! As you can see in the photos, its red color is a definite advantage. Perhaps its design was very sophisticated in its youth.
    : )

    Aha! So it is not just only about red fiaca, but there is a history of choosing red, Esthr!

    Your color? Or mere coincidence? 8)
  • Esther Dyson 10y

    I bought the suitcase at O'Hare airport on my way back from Europe, to replace the one I had, which was damaged en route. It was the only non-black one available... (but now red is becoming fairly common too.) Chances are the next one I buy will be a last-minute purchase too, and it will once again be non-black.

    Uhum... so there is some unintentional Feng-shui going on. Whether the Universe is populating your surroundings with red things, or you are atracting them unconciously, there must be a reason for this. Hey, no kidding.

    Well, of course there is always coincidence and randomness, but I am a pattern finder, sorry!

    There are common-place meanings for color Red. However, there is a theory about Light which explains that colors we percieve are the outcome of the process that is going on in the object (at particles scale) which makes it emit that color.

    Thus, our attachment to, or the presence of certain colors in our life mean actually the presence of or preference to certain processes. Maybe because we are in the same wavelength ourselves, maybe because we need to get to that wavelength (process). I should go check, but as I remember Red waves indicate a source whose energy is about to / will be released, a moment of expansion. It is the color which reflects the 'birth' of new things, new phases, the moment of creation.

    So, according to this, there should be a connection between you and these processes. Doesn´t sound crazy to me.

    Other colors indicate other processes (always related to energy): Black: attraction, Orange: replication, Yellow: transmission, etc.

    This, of course is a very superficial approach to the core idea. Btw, this is not a theory of mine, but of a friend, who I consider avant garde. Anybody interested in reading, let me know and I send you a pointer. :)

    @da5id (Chris Traweek )

    Voila! There is a bean bag room at PARC, but it looks a little different (in addition to being dated) from Esthr's photo. So this may not be Xerox PARC after all. (Note: the photo is so big, you will have to click one of the two links to see it.)
  • Steve Jurvetson 9y

    it's EVDB / eventful... a Xerox of the park
  • Marjorie Lipan 9y

    Steve, please explain! Is it in San Diego?

    Esthr is running a guess what famous Silicon Valley HQ this is. Have you seen it?
