Planeta.com explores the buzzwords, love them and hate them. Preferably, put them into context and translate them into Spanish (and other languages on request).
Visually, this is the solution I came up with this is to put the weasel words as questions in the thought bubbles of a dog standing on a roof. Why? Why not. We love dogs and this photo of a dog guarding a roof in Teotitlán del Valle, was taken during one of our public walks with the weavers.
Seeking editors to translate in other languages.
Living in rural Mexico and working online (2001-2013), I experienced a disconnect every few months when something new appeared online that had little relevance to my immediate surroundings and conversations or something appeared in my life on the ground in Oaxaca that I knew would be difficult to convey to the larger world.
I’m not the only one challenged to ask questions, feeling foolish for not articulating a new idea quite right. We co-exist in separate silos.
Too many questions go unasked which leads to a lot of misunderstanding. We talk around topics instead of asking simple, direct questions. Or we limit our feedback to ‘people like ourselves’ and accommodate the echo chamber.
