John Brockman interviewed by Kim Hill

Radio New Zealand – Saturday, 15 July:

9.05am Interview: John Brockman Literary agent and founder of online salon The Edge Foundation (www.edge.org) to bring together people working at the edge of a broad range of scientific and technical fields. He is the editor of: ‘What We Believe But Cannot Prove: Today’s Leading Thinkers on Science in the Age of Certainty’ (ISBN 0060841818), ‘Curious Minds: How a Child Becomes a Scientist’ (ISBN 0-375-42291-9), and many other books.

I don’t know how long the podcast will be up there for. Forever I hope, but I listened to it later via mp3 player – which is agreat thing to be able to do! I found it interesting, always one to enjoy the reminiscences of a boomer in the 60’s.  Disturbing too… such interesting people and stories and ideas but with is a strange scientism in the mix, he sides with Dawkins not Gould, there is a glowing link to Denis Dutton at the end, who maligns psychotherapy with his zealous cult like devotion to skepticism.

More on Brockman here by Bruce Stirling (Interesting that I just said he is interesting):

Wired 7.09: Agent Provocateur:

“You’re not interesting?” “Not not-interesting!” he snaps. “Post-interesting! Interesting doesn’t pay. Well, it pays once, but not twice. I used to be interesting. I was, like, the It Boy. Being so interesting – well, it’s not so interesting.”

Then and Now:

Professional identity

Psychotherapy & Counselling – the difference – registration of Psychotherapy as a profession in New Zealand

There is no simple way of saying that someone is doing a psychotherapy in the way we could say they have done an analysis. Psychotherapy as a project!
I also ask the question of how all this might apply or not to psychotherapy online.

Defence against pain

Here is another Audio (9.56 min):

Shownotes:
Thanks Dan for your response.

Maybe my reticence is not for professional reasons … a defence – See Freud's list here on Wikipedia

What are defenses about & for?

What about James Hillman's Acorn Theory

Whatever I am defended about there is also a need to find a way through some genuine difficulties.

Also mentioned:

Sukie Colegrave – By Way of Pain

Sukie Colegrave – Uniting Heaven & Earth

My Odeo Podcast

Podcast

Playing around with Odio. The audio snip in the last post in now in a new RSS feed called Psyberspace. Who knows what will come of it all. I have done this before, early in 2005 but it is easier now! Also it may be that I can find my voice in that sphere where cyber and psyche meet. It may be that it will sit well with my professional life.

Finding my voice

Five minutes of Audio. 

Audio Blog post – at Odeo
Some audio about finding my writer's, my blogger's voice. And the "show notes" follow"

My envy of Dan's voice: http://dan.randow.net.nz/

Ref to a books I mention: …. Can't find "I had the Time" maybe it does not exist!

Yalom, Orbach, though these are not good examples as they are professional books. Exposing for all that.

Some talk about pseudonyms.

Reference to Identity blogging & naked blogging

Audio attuned to Environment

In podcasting the “soundseeing tour” genre was coined in about  2005 and this project takes that to a whole new level.  I am downloading to have a listen, even though I won’t be driving Interstate 5 for a while (it is a long way from New Zealand).  My connetion is with Amy who is one of the creators, great to see this project online Amy!

Technorati: Search for http://conferences.oreillynet.com/etech/ The O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference is of course being blogged as it happens, and it is not over as I write. I hope Doug Kaye is there & I look forward to the IT conversations. ( Yes he’s there! ) For now it is blog cruising.
