Things are bad. Really bad. You want to do the right thing and make the bad thing better. We wish life would be as simple as making the Monsters Under the Bed go away just by sticking heads in rooms. Sadly, that doesn’t work. We have to name the Monster, get the facts on it, make possible meanings of the data in the context, and assign significance to meanings made, so we can cast the proper spells to make it go away.
IOW, we gather data on “things” to connect dots to find stories (working theories) for further investigation into “things” to find counter moves to support ourselves, life, and others. We use lawful techniques and tools. And if need be we invent new (GNU and creative commons licensed) techniques and tools.
