Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

While I managed to do a little live-blogging at last week’s Jelly coworking session, I neglected to add pictures to my words.

Never fear: Another Jelly-er snapped a few photos and Flickr’d them.

In that picture set, you’ll see yours truly up close and personal, along with an action shot of me eating pizza while conversing with the t-shirt aggregator dude. This is what it’s like to live your life in Web 2.0 mode, right?

Maybe I should get into the act and bring my fancy on-loan Nikon camera to the next Jelly, scheduled for Williamsburg (which I’m 90 percent sure I’ll attend). But I hate lugging that thing around, and since I’ll already have my computer in tow, I think I’ll have to leave the visual record to someone else.

Here’s a very good observation drawn from Audrey Choi’s novel “A Person of Interest”, appropriately enough made by the author herself:

To this end, “A Person of Interest” is about the way we alienate people who become objects of our suspicion, and about the way Lee, the protagonist, fails to “perform his innocence properly,” Choi says.

It’s a familiar reaction: Just the accusation is enough to convict someone in the court of public opinion. “Performing innocence” becomes an active imperative, versus what should be a passive status quo; having done nothing and being secure in that actually offers no security at all. If the accused does nothing and relies upon the process to eventually absolve him, he might prevail, but might still carry around the taint of simply being suspected at one point.
