I’m wondering what is the place of ephemera at Jewish Philosophy Place. I’m thinking of picture-sharing in particular. I would like to think that they function as otherwise meaningless visual building blocks in a conception of place. They bear no clear interpretation. But I can also see how they might annoy. It might just be a question of balance.

Ephemera works to stunning effect over at Tokyo Green Space http://tokyogreenspace.com/). But JPP is not that kind of a blog.

For his part, Alan Brill never posts ephemera over at Book of Doctrines and Opnions (one of the best Jewish thought blogs out there, it covers the orthodox scene from a modern/open orthodox perspective(http://kavvanah.wordpress.com/author/kavvanah/) Then again, JPP is not that kind of place either.

I’m still figuring out how this form of communication works or can work. Any comments one way or the other would be really appreciated.
