General Discussion / Re: Inkera Oshun running for re-election on the EC
« on: February 13, 2012, 09:12:36 AM »
I've watched Inkera's stature and ability grow from her entry. If you are really interested in transparency, this is the person who has worked as hard as anyone and harder than most to keep the most and best information in front of those who seek it.

If it means anything coming from me, Sam bailed PSi out of a serious bind in terms of accounting and taxes. He has my 100% support and faith.

Alvin, get used to it. That's how if feels to be on the EC. Lotta folks like to take random swipes at "the man."

Let me try to answer some of what you may be perceiving. I offer this honestly and without prejudice for the questions: Sometimes answering a lot of well-meaning inquiry just gets in the way of doing the things that drive this cart forward. No one, not even your paid staff does this as his or her living. It is all part-time at best and so time, being finite, means requests for information, attention, change, etc. (being apparently infinite) SEEM like they fill up the limited time any of us can devote to the real work of making PSi function.

Please, don't anyone read that I am saying your questions are inappropriate. I am saying that we are already dancing as hard as possible. Sometimes it takes 24 hours or more to get an answer ready to go. Or a response to your request or an answer to an email. Sometimes requests come at exactly the wrong moment. Next week might be better, but by the time we get to next week, I've had two or three other things that had high priority. Sometimes we need a reminder that we said we would do something, not because we are stalling or ignoring, but because a hundred other things are demanding our attention and energy.

Poets and organizers can be a pretty volatile collection. Don't blow up or use inflammatory language and insults. At least with me the likely response is to say, I have a hundred things to do today. This rude fellow just went to the back of the line. Sorry, if that isn't human nature, it is mine.

All people do what they can do and they don't do more. It is likely we need someone working the information desk at all times. But right now, about six of us try to take turns there on top of our other responsibilities.

And, if that seems hard to believe, drift back over these recent threads and see who is answering questions and how many questions there have been. I don't claim this is the best system for information dispersal, but it is the system we have.

My personal bias? Happy when a PSi event can happen in such a way that your Executive Director has to head there through my house. A little larger? Chris August has been building to this for ten years. Well done, friend.

General Discussion / Re: Overall Rank of NPS Teams?
« on: September 20, 2011, 09:13:52 AM »
Those rankings, as I have said for a long time, are very arbitrary. Yes, you could break them numerically, but that's kind of arbitrary too (especially if you are following the seeding threads). My recommendation is that if you finished 2nd in your semi is that you bill yourselves as tied for 6th. That is just as true as saying you finished 8th or 10th.

Syd, you misunderstand me. I'm laughing because this is not a PSi document. It's just something already on the web. I simply steered you to it because you asked for information.

Make it as pretty as you want. You haven't seen it used because no one else did the 3 minute google search to find one. I'm not always antagonistic. I laughed because it was funny.

I laughed when I read that. I don't know who made it ugly. It is what you asked for: a one pager. It has information. It allows greater participation. Greater participation is pretty.

There is no 2001. It is a myth in the misty wind.
