The beginnings of LILA Inter-Actions…
We keep our conversations light, with some jokes and some insights!
The accompanying edits and instruction are a result of this energy’s transduction
Soon we are discussing multiple topics on the same screen, so we create new WhatsApp groups to keep the communication clean.
1. The website group, with its own deadlines and mandate
And some celebrations when these timelines are met!
2. The Editorial group – with intensely democratic suggestions, debates and discussions…
Like this one on a Cover design option, that never made it to a public introduction!
Sometimes the groups also create a sensation because of cross-communication, but even that gives the members a productive stimulation!
3. And finally, our Social Media and Design group, which involves some of the most creative members of our troupe!
We wonder, having looked through our conversations and compiled these glimpses of our governance experience on WhatsApp, how technology has affected not just our language and communication patterns, but also the cognitive processes that go into comprehending these texts. It has given us the opportunity to have multiple conversations instantly, and remain connected with our translocal team, but it may also be worth reflecting on understanding how a multiplicity of instant messages impact our inference and thought processes.
