where do you stand on the map?

Gale Parchoma’s Contested Ontology of Affordances was an epic read, ranging over a landscape so broad I struggled to grasp the bigger picture. There are so many inter-related / overlapping ideas and contradictions that I wondered whether others would also find it challenging. And because I was presenting this very deep, detailed on a day full of other presentations, and I wanted to avoid death by powerpoint 😉

The analogy I came up with is that of politics, where (to my mind) there are equivalent complexities and inter-responses. I really like ABC’s Vote Compass, so what I came up with – and I’ll include the whole box and dice here, but the bit I like most is the activity…

Affordance Compass.
