Kairic Rhythmicity in the Turing-Galaxy

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    This paper explores problems of time and timing in different spaces with refer-ence to two case studies from the epoch of the Turing-Galaxy. Case study 1 is on networked learning communities and case study 2 is an e-learning project in a small multimedia firm in Denmark. Basic assumptions are that time has be-come one of our major problems, almost an obstacle rather than a rich source of life, in the epoch of the Turing-galaxy or in the network society, and it is ar-gued, that we have to deal with time in a new way different from during the industrial epoch. In order to discuss these assumptions the matrix of Time and Space Manifold suggested by Rämö (Rämö 1999) and the concept of "rhythmicity" as elaborated by Adam (Adam 1990, 1998) are introduced and dis-cussed in relation to the case studies.
