First paragraph: This chapter is a thing, a gathering around a matter of concern. There is a gathering in the writing of the text, its editing and publication and its reading. It is therefore a gathering across space and time, a thing which changes, translates and betrays (Latour 1996 ) in the process of its gathering, of thinging . A strange beginning for a chapter on lifelong learning perhaps... One that may not encourage gathering - you may skip to the next chapter. However, I hope by the end of this experiment that the concerning matter has become a gathering, a thing to be referenced perhaps.
