During the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, The Independent newspaper is using Debategraph
as a new kind of global citizen reporting tool to help people around the world make sense collectively of what's happening and not happening at the UN conference.
The process builds on The Independent’s existing cluster

I'm pleased to now be a part of GlobalSensemaking. For over 30 years I've largely worked where the rubber hits the road and people aren't communicating well or even living well, as in race relations and low-income neighborhoods, or where people are working to set little patches of wicked things right, as in ecological restoration sites, politics or dispute resolution. I've lived largely outside of web-based communication and dialogue networks as I worked in these mostly… Continue

The book manuscript I have just finished writing may be of interest:
- The question "What should the creation and use of information be like to be conducive to sensemaking?" is answered in terms of a methodology, comprising principles, criteria, methods and applications.
- A case is made for a (academic) practice where instead of automatically following the methods and interests of a discipline, we aim to respond to the contemporary needs of people and…

We've been busy building the website for ESSENCE: E-Science/Sensemaking/Climate Change:
We're fast approaching the stage where we will approach external groups of stakeholders to invite them to try out our sensemaking tools. The website is not yet being publicly announced with any fanfare until we have populated it with more examples and partners.
So, we… Continue

President-elect Obama’s web site change.gov has a page (“open for questions”
) where people can submit and vote on questions, and where he promised to answer the top 5 questions in each category. Apparently a journalist encouraged
readers to vote for one of the questions (on appointing a special prosecutor to look at Bush’s… Continue

Some might be interested in a series of posts tracing Compendium's early history. There are connections to some of the themes discussed in the Philosophical aspects of sensemaking and operational definitions
thread, which I'm just now belatedly reading.
The series starts here

Pierre Lévy posted a bookmark at Twine

WikiScience is devoted to mass collaboration and the use of Science and ingenuity to address the problems of desertification and the effects of global climate change. It is meant to provide a canvas to enable both scientists and Citizen Scientists alike to work… Continue

When I started doing web-work I was already long familiar with how tech_doc types just don't rate. (Brutally frank, but simply so.)
Because of that I felt somewhat self-conscious publishing yet more ... a couple of thousand hits per month year after year isn't nothing, but it ain't no A-list!
That said, a dozen years later ... old habits die hard. Having just now re-visited an MIT wiki that carries on, brick by brick, I… Continue

As part of thinking through our SocialLearn platform for socially-based, informal and formal learning, I am pondering the overlaps and differences between sensemaking and learning, in theory and practice. In my view, SL as a platform designed to connect learners with each other via common learning goals, interoperable with many Web 2.0 tools
, could be a potential GSm platform for analysts and subject matter experts… Continue
