Is Missional Going Mainstream?

07.06.2008

Hey David, you were probably the first person I heard ever talk about […]

AI: It’s Not Just for Artificial Intelligence Anymore

19.05.2008


… although “things you learn from reading blogs” could be considered “artificial intelligence,” I suppose … Here are a couple new, interesting meanings for the acronym AI: Ambient Intimacy — the feeling of connection that social networking and microblogging platforms (such as Twitter) create through the regularity and transparency of information being shared (my summary) […]

The New Charismatics?

11.05.2008
