Hi Carlos!

It happened the same to me, I lost the post :-( Anyhow...
I see that my idea of not answering comments in my own blog will be difficult to carry out if I don't find a way to link my response to your comment to your current post, a challenge to the imagination, lets see...

O.K. You mentioned as a joke that we Latins place people from the network in our groups of friends but I see some truth in it. You are placing here the group as"Axis", so you highlight again the importance of the group. Do you think that a Latin network has different characteristics than a non-Latin one?

Following your analogy, to take
the Velocity as the speed in which a participate surfs the network, how do we measure it?, How will this affect the orbit or Connective knowledge? Should we encourage speed?

If the Centripetal force would be the transfer of the learning in the Network of a single student to the group. Shouldn't it be the other way around?

Your image of an atom, where each student is an electron... goes very well with this week focus on chaos. If you had too much coffee... I had too much coke! he, he, he, he.
