Photo: Ron Mader, Roof Dog, Oaxaca explores the buzzwords, love them and hate them. Visually, this is the solution I came up with this is to embed the weasel words as questions in the thought bubbles of a dog.

Living in Mexico City and later Oaxaca City and working online (1997-2013), I experienced a disconnect every few months when something new appeared online that had little relevance to my immediate surroundings and conversations. So many of these buzzwords, aspiring WOTY candidates, either delighted or annoyed me. This is how we learn through delight or annoyance.

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.

About this particular roof dog
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.
