The Hardest Arguer
The person arguing the hardest typically has something else at stake other that being right. Whether it is their brittle male egos, love of authoritarianism or other kinds of fundamentalism, they are often arguing for a worldview. Being right often has little to do with it.
A View of Despair
A View of Despair is a really interesting visualization of suicide statistics in the Netherlands in 2017.

Postcards, A Taxonomy
A Flickr album of postcards. It’s more interesting than you’d think. Looking through some of these, I realized that my photography tends to fall in the onlooker, perspective, street scene, interiors, road side monuments, dining & drinking, and food related styles.
The Purpose of Dialogue
Open Question: What is the purpose of dialogue?
- People generally only change their minds when in conversation with someone that loves them. How many conversations are we having with people we love?
- Maybe the point of conversation is to change our own minds. If we aren’t coming from that place, are we in dialogue at all?
- Trying to change other people’s mind is often a futile exercise. If true, then why bother having any dialogue at all?
