Beach Walk 649 – Kluge and Improvise

I read a review of a new book, Kluge – The Haphazard Construction of the Human Mind that describes a lot of our brain function and memory processes as actually quite improvised, and contextual, not particularly logical or repeatable. That is a contrast to the methodical approach of computers, yet one that suits us being able to take action on the fly. As life becomes less and less predictable, being able to improvise is a more appealing skill IMO. FYI, kluge is a computer term for banding things together in unpredictable ways.

Hawaiian word:
Haku wale: improvise

  1. Susan and my dog Lexie says

    I think the sound remains excellent — Rox’s voice is clear and the surf comes through equally well without distraction. However you feel you’re ‘improvising’, Shane, keep it up.

  2. I’d have to agree with Susan; the sound is coming through just fine on this end. The beach seemed especially busy with people and dogs today. :-)

  3. You and Shane handled today’s unusual circumstances well. In fact, mixing it up like this makes the show a bit more exciting.

    And the audio was fine, Shane! No worries.
