Turkel on Flux

Bill Turkel has written a thought provoking post at Digital History Hacks calling for a re-conception of how we ‘do’ history.wjturkel1.jpg He summarizes his understanding of the conventional process involving measured, concrete steps, that unfortunately presuppose that time essentially stands still as we practise our craft. Here I learn about Parmenides. Turkel proposes a radical new model that accounts, not only for the aspect of continual change, but to my mind also suggests that the future of our practise is in greater real-time collective research products. I would normally point directly at a notable post, but this one warranted particular acknowledgement in hope that you will check it out. Great points to ponder.
