    Smile Hot and Cool

    A hot medium requires firefighters to control the flaming.

    While a cool medium requires no firefighters at all.

    Typology Central is a hot medium and so we have firefighters, called moderators, on duty at all times.

    But when I speak to you on the telephone, there is not one moderator present. Yes, the telephone is a cool medium that needs no firefighters at all.

    And yes, in popular culture 'hot' means 'sexy' and 'cool' means 'good'.

    So in popular terms, Typology Central is sexy and the telephone is good.

    And there is no point asking whether you are good or sexy, for almost everyone here is sexy - we can barely resist flaming one another.

    But without the flamers there would be no moderators. They feed off each other like prey and predator in nature.

    It's called Systems Theory or Cybernetics where everything is related to everything else, just like the flamers and the moderators.

    hotness ~ sexy ~ psychosexual desires ~ redirected by flaming ~ hotness

    coldness ~ sexually neutral ~ stoicism ~ sober moderation ~ coldness

    Two parts of the same whole.

    There isn't really a point. Just translating I guess.

    I beg you to talk to me on the telephone for I enjoy a nice cool conversation with you.

    Talking on the telephone is like diving into a cool pool and finding we are both in there together. We splash about a little. We dive under. We even swim a few laps and play water ball. And when we have finished we emerge dripping and happy, relaxed and refreshed.

    That's why I can't resist talking with you.

    In, "Understanding Media", Marshall McLuhan, the patron saint of the internet, gave us the concept of hot and cool media.

    And coincidentally, popular culture has given us hot, meaning sexy, and cool, meaning good.

    However hot and cool media have nothing to do with hot and cool in popular culture. And even though they both use the same words, they have different meanings.

    So I have woven the hot and cool of the media with the hot and cool of popular culture into a braid.

    So no wonder you are lost. To find yourself, you would need to untangle the two threads of the braid.

    Or you could stay lost and say, "What a lovely braid".
