Hartshorne and Jenkins- in Convergence Culture, Jenkins talks about communities of knowledge. In Divine Relativity, Hartshorne talks about the idea of a God for whom human experience constitutes a part of his own knowledge, and in Reality as a Social Process, he talks about the concept of the divine memory, in which all human memory is stored and sustained. I think that there is some crossover between the two, where religious communities constitute a knowledge community....

This is not quite fleshed out yet in my head. Hartshorne really describes God as though he is a backup harddrive, but in fact God is changed and takes part in these changes, so the idea of a storage facility is not right.

I still think there is an undocument parallel between fandom and Christianity, where believers find a portion of the Christian story to resonate with them and involve them in much the same way a particular story or character will involved and resonate with a fan of a certain way. I think that Christianity, particularly in the Evangelical churches, are more and more becoming the fanboys of Christ.

Comparative Media Studies at MIT- I keep thinking about it. I really, really wonder what it would be like for me to to that after I get my M.Div. It's usually funded....

Something to hold in mind.
