Noted: Nothing from Sharath’s conference this week

This is a post that really might be better as a 138 character thought on Twitter:

Has anyone else noticed there wasn’t any blog coverage from last Sunday’s Sharath conference?

Now, I’m assuming there was one, and that there won’t be this Sunday, which is a Moon Day. (At least it is here in California.) Perhaps there wasn’t, and that explains things.

But I can’t help wondering about it because the last Conference that got covered was the one where teachers’ names were aired. And it was the one that made me wonder if we weren’t getting too much information from Mysore too quickly.

Now, before you even think it, I don’t in any way, shape or form believe anything I wrote reverberated in Mysore. But I wouldn’t be surprised if people there didn’t reflect on how lessons being given to 300 or so students weren’t being disbursed to thousands and thousands. And that something might be being lost in that virtual translation.

So perhaps there was a tacit agreement to lay off. Or maybe there was something more formal. We don’t know.

And that’s kind of the point. We can find out when people we know return and give us the scoop, face to face.

You know, like they did in the “old days.”

(Final side note: This topic is interesting for me because Bobbie and I are, I think, planning to “blog” as much as possible from the Confluence. Will we face any of these same issues? I don’t know, but I’m sure we’ll be cognizant of them.)

  1. i am a believer that most of what is transmitted can’t get through a computer, perhaps one has to turn the computer off to turn on the “receptive inner you”

    what do you think?
