Funpov: Lmk a time and I’ll hit yo line.
Uncle Sam: 3pm est…
Uncle Sam: …I guess today is siblings day? Tough to keep up with the holidays lol but seems appropriate we’re both building relationships with ours today. The technology is transparency… As with all tech, I think we can expect results to be exponential.

Uncle Sam: When’s good today?
Uncle Sam: …Satiya Sunday…
Funpov: Idk. Feeling heavy right now with fam shit. Might take meds and get talkative later. Actually just came here to get that youtube doc. The idea of going out to shoot POV and never looking at the footage just sending it home (to an editor) is one I never really thought about before at least not like that photographer did. That would be the real experiment. Could send back with notes but for the most part probably wouldn’t even have to. It wouldn’t even be “shooting” at that point anymore, it would be just like you were saying “looking” or in POVs case “living” or being or exploring. Exactly the moment before this thought came I was thinking about the fantasy of removing all screens from my life or as much as is modernly possible. This led me to thinking about living on a farm cuz this 13 year old kid on hbo in the 50s (“the plot against america”) wants to go live on a farm for the summer but his family is worried that it’s an insidious strategy to separate jewish kids from their families (the show explores what if Lindberg, an apparent questionable anti-semite) runs for the presidency and wins… i digress, i have this ringing in my ears the last months that just won’t quit. i am suspicion that it has something to do with the daily majority of usage. but ya if i was on a farm and only recording POV video, voice notes and phone call capsules, i wouldnt have to look at a screen barely ever. maybe the ringing would go away. it would be a shocking shift of an environment for this brain. I did hear yesterday though that farms have a ton of excess product bec so many restaurants are hurting/ closing right now. So maybe not a farm but something else.
Uncle Sam: Sounds like a healthy line of thought. Enjoy that doc, we’ll talk when the time comes. Family weight lifting takes its toll
Funpov: Yo I strung the transcript together from our recent emails. I gotta post something every fcckin day or I get really fcckin down. I don’t know what to do with the call capsules yet so this is the new choo choo train of thought. Medium.com could be the perfect public place for the day to days of emails/ phone calls/ voice memo messages. The foundational ground work maybe. We’ve never really had a one click option to transcribe a call or publicize an email for instance. Email in this current case an email is slower than talking out loud but it is all so different. Maybe this is a step in the Total output direction of things twist for remixing the daily realities we bring. But cha cha, Leme know if you would change anything. It’s a communal Collabra in the end. The idea is to again hopen up the mind and sort of “go transparent” as much as possible and yet still maintain a healthy filter of privacy on the phone and in our homes. Total maximum Publication (daily diaries) sans judgement or distraction is still the goal. This is what Living free might mean to me… https://link.medium.com/UIxr9iUoE5
