bricolage and pirate treasure

I’m a bit of a  bricoleur – I love collecting random facts and lists and  etmymologies and anything that will add colour and movement to the improvisational nature of most of my expressions whether it be my paid work or cooking or scaring people at dinner parties…well anything really.

@charlesfrith: New etymology last night. Conspire = breath together; con spire. Sweet eh?

You can’t make good decisions unless you have great choices, and I’m a big fan of stocking up on those. Adding articles into Delicious is a great example that kind of bowerbird behaviour, and this combined with feeding my favourites on Flickr, my Google reader starred items and other caches of bits and pieces that have caught my eye helps me create collages pretty quickly.

It means that you need to have the discipline to contribute to your stock pile every day- but when fast strategy is required it really does become a pirate’s treasure just waiting for you to dig up. Tag ho!
