Hi Howard, thanks for commenting here. I’m partway thru reading your book, actually (non-linearly) so I jumped in now to read the part about “the power law of participation” and realized that’s exactly what i was trying to express: that participation, even though it gives power and can be self-interested, still contributes to others. I agree that having more of Turner calls “network entrepreneurs” people would be good for everyone… Do you think it’s a matter of supporting literacies, helping people move through the curve of participation, or do you think some people have attitudes/personalities that are much deeper and difficult to change? Are younger generations leaning towards more networking/openness, or is this still a literacy and attitude they need to learn from us? Are literacies attitudinal, not just skills?
