In the last few years I've learned to operate a letterpress, make zines, pick locks, build with PVC, erect scaffolding, build and repair bikes, bind books, and cast a variety of materials (Plastic epoxy, plaster, silicone, and resin)

Awesome on the letterpress. I'm about to do an experimental process making custom letter punches. Also, I learned how to do intaglio printmaking. Anybody up for learning printmaking with me? Very Happy

You should teach me lockpicking, Glor. I'm design a new type of custom lock where the doorknob itself is the key and the tumblers use more than the normal number of functions, all around the doorknob. Very Happy

Well, I can't say I've picked up a lot of new skills, but I've been refining what I do have.

Of most note is that I've recently become fascinated with how we (as people) use words both in the context of expression and of perception.  The focus being on how to create an environment that empowers people towards effective communication in terms of words used and interpretation of the words others use.  I've found that many people who have trouble expressing themselves in a non-confrontation manner also lack to know-how to interpret others' words in a non-confrontational manner.  This is a ridiculous situation that leads to unnecessary person conflict and distractions from whatever more-important issues may be at hand.  An environment such as the current, ignorant, one also allows people with manipulative goals to hide their intent.  My new favorite motto is "The words work...sometimes".  I like helping people make their words work more often.

So...I guess I've gained skills in communication strategies and dialogue moderation. Smile

Also, I'm totally up for both printmaking and lockpicking.  Hell, I'm up for anything!  We should have regular community learning .... things (meetings, teachings, lessons?  None of the words work...)  I'd love to learn some of what you guys know, and I absolutely love passing on what I know; it'd be nice to have an actual environment for that (even if it's not actually structured) and even more so, it'd be nice to (eventually) share that with the rest of whatever community we end up in.

Zee, my current major personal project is in creating a constructed language. The goal isn't necessarily to be able to convey messages perfectly or effectively all the time (look up lojban if you want that, and good luck spelling it), but it's to tinker with other ways of communicating and to learn more about it. Ideally you could create a language that works best with a given group.

Anywho, if you're at all interested, definitely hit me up. unmeilleurreve@gmail.com and if you email me I'll shoot you a phone number, should you so desire.
