Where would you go to talk to people who are interested in talking to people – beyond anecdotal extremes?

star-trek-beyond-c1Where would you go to talk to people who are interested in talking to people?

I don’t mean work or hobbies or organized institutions such as churches or clubs or networking or dating I mean.. well.. people of a feather who’d like to talk together?

Something beyond anecdotal extremes?

Unity.. exploring.. disputing.. in a respectful way.. “whither humanity?”

This is a concern among the generations way more than the would-be would like to present – it’s thought, feeling, spirit, more. than any age, gender, race, whatever ism you care to specify – imho ; p

Every time you troll… a chainsaw hits the dirt : (

psamakertrollwaeldedirestaPSA Trolling – a tongue-in-cheek lash back from the maker community to trolls everywhere

PSA – Public Service Announcement

MAKER – The maker culture is a contemporary culture or subculture representing a technology-based extension of Do It Yourself culture that intersects with hacker culture. Typical interests enjoyed by the maker culture include engineering-oriented pursuits such as electronics, robotics, 3-D printing, and the use of Computer Numerical Control tools, as well as more traditional activities such as metalworking, woodworking, and, mainly, its predecessor, the traditional arts and crafts. The subculture stresses a cut-and-paste approach to standardized hobbyist technologies, and encourages cookbook re-use of designs published on websites and maker-oriented publications. There is a strong focus on using and learning practical skills and applying them to reference designs. (See also Instructables http://www.instructables.com/ )

TROLL – An (Internet) troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, often for their own amusement.
