I would like to learn. You can teach me something in the MattisManzel cluster without disturbing on other pages.

For example:

But also other things (just teach me something please):

Who told you learning requires teachers ?

It’s more fun with teachers. Especially when those teachers are your pupils on other subjects and you are their teacher. It’s a game, a pretty useful and powerful one btw. We started up on this helping each other on translations, the general culture of our conversation I feel is growing. I wanted to open another channel for this healthly groovin’ attitude. Dunno if these teachme subpages might be of any use? If Aonghus and pir had such, I would at least have to bother the others less with German corrections on the general pages.

But maybe you also rather politely mean: “As far as your Italian is concerned, buddy - sit down with a book and bloody learn it!” Well, you couldn’t be more right.

Ok, I’ll teach you something. I’m an old guy who has not finished learning from being involved in what goes on in the environments he has happend to be living in …. My English is the outcome of using it as a working language in different places … My stubborn belief that “translation” is the type of User Interface which is missing in most technology “enabled” environments - especially the type of translation which is mostly made of listening and letting others talk themselves out of their problems - stems from past experiences of supporting Users in some of those environments ….
Nobody taught me those things and in fact I’m still learning about them …. at my own risk … (this might be important for a learning process) … to keep myself young (?) .. perhaps … :)
Can you get what I mean ?
Hope so! BTW, I think these pages may be a great idea towards “enabling” ourselves to be part of a (wiki supported) learning environment .. ;)

Mattis, when you write “born 60 in Berlin”, do you mean you were born in 1960, or that you were born in the 60’s? Clear English would be “born in ‘60 in Berlin”, or “born in the 60’s in Berlin”, respectively.


Thanks John, I didn’t know. “Born in ‘60 in Berlin is right”. I’ll correct it wikilandiawide :( (after the 19th presumabliy).

Hello Mattis, here is the new start page of “your ;-)” visual aggregator: http://anoptique.org/MetaWikis (You are light pink on this image) The page http://wiki.km2.net/wakka.php?wiki=PoieticAggregator is also going to be ripped to http://anoptique.com (work in progress). We hope to have some feedack…

Do you know how to juggle? I have found juggling a very rewarding thing to learn. There are many interesting things about learning to juggle. One relatively undocumented juggling technique that is also relatively easy is learning to juggle two objects in unique ways. Most people learn to juggle two objects in one hand (or bypass straight to three in both). Perhaps they discover that tossing the objects around in circles in one hand can be modified to side-to-side or maybe even front-to-back. Real pros learn how to do it in two hands simultaneously (4 balls).

However, here are a couple easier but somewhat odd patterns. Understanding that juggling has odd patterns is itself interesting to learn. Try throwing one ball at a time into the air from one hand to another, starting with both in one hand and getting both in the air at the same time. Keep the balls from ever meeting in any one hand (the pattern looks like throw-throw; throw-throw; throw-throw). This is called the snake. Now try starting with them in different hands and throwing at the same time (swaps). Change your throw height and see how different the pattern looks. For example, try swaps by throwing the balls directly from palm to palm in a straight line at your waist. Good fun.

You can also try going from two in a circle pattern in one hand, to both in the air and then back to two in a circle (a flash). Try starting with two in one hand and throwing them both in the air at the same time (duplex)… just don’t ask me to teach you what to do with them at this point. :-)
