One significant purpose for writing our legacies is to extract the lessons we've learned from our experience, from our "stories," to pass them forward to future generations. We do this even as we live in the chaos of world politics, a politics that has hijacked religion, using its words and ideas to fill us with fear, destroy basic human rights and terrorize citizens all around the planet.
Writing your life story doesn’t have to be a marathon event unless time is of the essence or there is just too much information for one person to manage. (In that case, I would just hire a personal historian to help you.) When managing the process yourself, however, it’s easy to start slowly. Don’t live with regrets by not getting started at all.
My goal is to shake 10,000 hands in 100 days. ... For anyone who will take 30 seconds to talk to me (no guarantee these days), I'll offer a self-addressed, pre-stamped postcard with instructions to share a single memory -- "a story you don't want to be forgotten" (along with a photograph or illustration) and mail it back to me.
During the last decade, much attention has been paid to language competition in the complex systems community, that is, how the fractions of speakers of several competing languages evolve in time. In this paper we review recent advances in this direction and focus on three aspects. First we consider the shift from two-state models to three state models that include the possibility of bilingual individuals. The understanding of the role played by bilingualism is essential in sociolinguistics. In particular, the question addressed is whether bilingualism facilitates the coexistence of languages. Second, we will analyze the effect of social interaction networks and physical barriers. Finally, we will show how to analyze the issue of bilingualism from a game theoretical perspective.

Andrea Phillips: "Let’s forget all about buzz, all about definitions, and all about what’s been done, and finally turn our attention to the juicy affair of why and how to use transmedia tools to tell your story. There are several compelling reasons to go transmedia, and these primarily fall into two basic camps: the business case and your creative vision" ...
Recently, connectionist models have been advanced. This opposes the information-processing accounts. It is more concerned with how the system develops. Connectionism is a concept based on theories of artificial ...
"Language is an ecstatic activity of signification. Through the act of speaking vividly, we enter into a flirtation with the domain of the imagination. The fluency, the ease, the aptness of expression one becomes capable of are such that one is astounded by the words that issue forth" - Terrance McKenna
Andrea Phillips: "Transmedia storytelling is the art of breaking up one story or experience over multiple media, so that each medium is making a special and unique contribution to the whole. But the lessons I’ve learned over the past decade of creating and participating in transmedia projects are surprisingly applicable to anyone who has an audience — and on the web, that means everyone."
