Towards an Apollo Moon Landing-style Effort

It seems to me that the time is ripe to mount an effort roughly the equivalent of the Apollo Mission, but not the way the Apollo Mission was handled. Consider this possibility:

In comparison to the hierarchical command/control model in play which arguably worked spectacularly well during the moon landings, it is now possible to think of a network topology which is not a rooted tree; rather, a graph of well-federated efforts to bring as many people on this planet (stakeholders) into…

Collaboration for Impact

That our core challenge now is to learn how to use the technology to re-weave our collective nervous systems will not be any news to this community. Doug Engelbart spent the three last decades of his life seeking for a community, a place in the world, a systemic pressure point, where this re-weaving could properly begin, in such a way that it might scale... And just as he was leaving us, a bit more than a year ago, this re-weaving was germinating in a community where it might be uniquely…

Experiments with collaboration platform design

I've been accumulating thoughts at http://debategraph.org/CollaborationTools

and am starting to craft a platform which serves as a framework for experimentation. The platform is called TQPortal, and a prototype is online (on a creaky old server at my home) here.  This is the first platform I put online that is supported by a full topic map rather than…

Anthony Judge: Musings on global sensemaking

Anthony Judge's latest http://www.laetusinpraesens.org/docs10s/hoarse.php seems like a launching pad for musing on the topic of sensemaking.  I suspect that that article, together with links from it, serve as talking points for deep thinking about sensemaking.

Sensemaking in Decision Making - summary Phd study

Content

 

Chapter 1 introduces the research question: How does sense-making develop in the context of decision-making on complex issues in a public organisation? The purpose of the research is to gather insight and to identify improvements in the process of decision-making. This research is important because democracy depends on the trustworthy execution of decisions by the public organisation. The complexity of society and…

Revitalize our community? Here’s an idea!

We come together as a small group at a suitably designed workshop; and we plan and sensemake and create together.

More concretely: I propose to join us at the Third International Workshop on Knowledge Federation, September 30–October 3 in Dubrovnik, Croatia; possibly to co-create this event together.

We can offer:

  • An attractive venue in a Renaissance city, lovely meeting locale at the Inter-University Centre with a park extending all the…

Knowmads, of Texture and sensuality in hyperconnectivity

"The social aspect of the hyperconnected web carries an update to the nature of propinquity. Propinquity is a conceptual brick we need re-acquire and redefine in the era of hyperconnectivity. By allowing the texture of hyperconnected virtuality to gain precedence we will open new realms of sensual experience previously unexplored, these realms offer the potential to explore new forms of freedom not previously accessible or existent.

Polytopians are Knowmads pushing the edge of texture…

Systemic innovation can help collective sensemaking change conventional practice

In systemic innovation we take a step beyond offering or adding sensemaking tools to a conventional practice, such as journalism or science; we combine sensemaking and other IT tools and use them as Lego blocks to recreate the practice – by aligning it with the social purposes it needs to serve. Is systemic innovation the missing link that can help us realize the full potential of collective sensemaking?

Help us develop this promising innovation practice and…

The Luxurious Ambiguity of Intelligence in Hyperconnectivity

This here is the latest entry in the Polytopia Project:

"The cyborgization process of becoming in which we presently take part has a long history and a very likely and highly plausible future, including wide arrays of options of radically enhancing our bodies and minds, however, the cyborgization becoming of our civilization is a multilayered, multidimensional progression that can be parsed in many ways, one of which is the hyperconnected virtualized enmeshed reality already in…

An experiment in community...

An interesting experiment has been taking place in Melbourne, Australia around the creation of generative spaces for strengthening neighbourhoods and tackling challenging issues.

 

The experiment was started, perhaps rather unexpectedly, by a church but most decidedly it was not an attempt to try draw people “into the institution.” Instead it asked how might we create more neighbourhood spaces for authentic engagement, person to person? It worked on the assumption that we can…

You know me from Twine (www.twine.com, now redirected to www.evri.com). Or not.

http://2020.global.gaiaspace.org/global/pg/blog/malecic/read/16649/global-sensemakers

Dear ladies and gentlemen sensemakers,

I've mentioned this website/social network/whatever in that "meshwork" (see the link above). I am a blogger and former Twine member. I believe that blogging and online brainstorming can increase a person's IQ for a point or two.
