Creating a channel, planting a seed..
See it grow, water it, let other people nurture it.
Let others see it grow, or witness it alone.
Going through someone's Are.na profile (ie stalking them) feels like walking through their brain
Not like twitter, which emphasises recency. Not like a personal website, which is usually creation and not curation
Like a free flowing conversation. You can add to their thoughts without it feeling intrusive
One of my favorite things about this place is that you can fluidly use Are.na in a work environment and not feel judged.
Almost like a positive distraction disguised as research
Instead of a negative distraction translated as a lack of focus
