The Catskills on the 4th

We were passing through the Catskills during the 4th weekend and we stopped at the Liberty NY museum.Tummler was a full-on regular job at these resorts and it helped launch the career of many great performers including Mel Brooks, Sid Ceasar and Joey Adams.

The people who stayed at these resorts were immigrants or children of immigrants and this was their time out of the city to spend some time in a pool, eat some good food they didn’t have to cook themselves and socialize. People often went back at the same time every year and community and participation was a big part of the experience.

Lower costs of more exotic consumer vacation destinations like the Caribbean led to the closing of these resorts but they led to a loss of connection and community.

“I highly recommend tuning in to the show”

Howard Lipztin just posted about how hot the conversation is getting about curation and nicely mentioned our wood on the fire.

TummelVision 16: Teresa Nielsen-Hayden and Scott Rosenberg the uber-tummlers tell us how it’s done


Episode Notes

Episode 16 Download the show

We speak with two great tummlers in this episode. Teresa Nielsen-Hayden is a science fiction editor and was the first boingboing comments moderator when they returned to comments in 2007. Teresa is also a blogger and the first person to practice disemvoweling online of the entire text of offensive posts.

Most important to us, she’s the original applier of the term tummel to social catalyzing in the web era (she discussed it with Kevin and then the three of us had a collective aha moment. See our story on the about page.)

Also joining us is early blogger, journalist, long-time Salong writer and editor and blogging historian Scott Rosenberg.
