aporia pidgeon introduction

aporia pidgeon is “being spelled” as a cross between pidgin and pigeon

“being spelled” may refer to how a word is spelled out by the letters used to comprise that word for the purposes of reading the word as just that word

“being spelled” may also refer to how a word, thus spelled, may become meaningful over a period of time as a possible name for the purposes of calling that wording by just that name

“being spelled” may happen over time and space and, in particular, through ordinary usage

for example, we might ask how the spelling of aporia pidgeon may become ordinarily used as a tag

or, we might ask how the spelling of aporia pidgeon may ordinarily become used as a brand

or, we might even ask how the (mis)spelling of an ordinary pidgeon may have possibly have come about through aporia

be this by way of on-line, off-line, or simple ordinary (mis)alignment, one thing is for certain

a pidgeon in aporia was here: here; here; and here, though not all (t)here … yet

aporia is a pathfinding vehicle for social enterprise

aporia is a member of the emerge community at http://emerge.elgg.org/aporia

it is not possible to post comments in relation to aporia as part of the emerge community website without being logged on as a member of the emerge community and, at this stage, membership of the emerge community is closed

however, aporia has also been emerging as a community itself, with members – and potential members – who are effectively not regarded as members of the immediate emerge community

therefore, aporia pidgeon is here to open up the dialogue between aporia community members who are not members of the emerge community, but who may wish to be able to post comments on the issues being raised

in addition, emerge community members are also free to access aporia pidgeon and post comments either here or via the emerge community website

importantly, emerge community members may employ aporia pidgeon as a go-between in order to help anonymise their comments to be fed back indirectly to the emerge community

these emerge community members may not otherwise feel that they have the expressive privacy required in order to voice such potential concerns

or indeed, aporia pidgeon may be employed in other ways that are themselves emergent

in this sense, aporia is cultivating a research through social enterprise approach, and aporia pidgeon is but one carrier of this research (if not quite as a research career)

so welcome to the grass roots – and hope this helps !
