Mick Fealty14,337*The form’s the thing, not the play within it.* _ @114849048279122543254 explains this first in a short series of talks with @110465386078989533154 on his life's work in theatre, arts and education.__ These two shapes, symbolically, represent the essence of all human activity.   They infuse opposed ambitions at the root of the possibilities of achievement. Everyone (knowingly or unknowingly) is conditioned by such concepts as: Gods and goddesses; Apollo and Dionysos; masculine and feminine principles; individual and collective; freedom and equality; striving and sharing; sky and earth; doing and being; reason and feeling; form and content; actor and audience; etc.  Through the platform, humanity aspires to the sky, determined to take on the gods.  Through the circle, humanity relates to the earth, seeking harmonies within itself and the natural world.  The history of the platform absorbing the circle has controlled human endeavour since Mesopotamian times.  The twenty first century is its dangerous aftermath, as it seeks to create paths to the circle absorbing the platform.  Creativity is the powerless force attempting to find means to achieving that transformation  The form’s the thing, not the play within it.RG Gregory The Platform and the Circle2014-11-19 22:30:005  
John Kellden32,366In this Hangout, we're going to talk about shared understanding, social cognition, enactivity and playfulness. Not necessarily in that order. Three stages of social cognition: *1. Opaque mind: No Is Less* Solemnity. Being serious all the time, even when levity would be slightly more fun and perhaps even meaningful. *2. Absorbent mind: More Is More* Social media. If one social media post is fantastic, let's consume one gazillion? *3. Transceiving mind: Yes Is More* Social cognition. After having said no, one gazillion times, we suddenly rediscover how to say yes. Any sufficiently advanced social cognition is indistinguishable from playfulness. Context - a little something to gear up for the Hangout: _"How do people understand each other?"_ -- Hanneke De Jaegher http://hannedejaegher.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/hannedphilboekformaat.pdf *Bohemian Gravity* https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2rjbtsX7twc *Enaction* _"Enaction is the idea that organisms create their own experience through their actions."_ -- Edwin HutchinsConversation Community: Shared Understanding2014-10-13 17:30:007

Mick Fealty14,337So, a new way for having serious fun in real (rather than virtual) time?  We're looking for a smart idea, a good pub and a decent pint. Oh, and some congentially smart company in a town called Oxford.  Someone (yet to be found) pitches us a smart idea on *how we might positively bridge Ireland's rich past and its uncertain future*.  It's all informal, but with a few important strictures: _One_, it's in a bar (ala cafe scientifique).  _Two_, the key speaker must have his/her pint in hand whilst speaking.  _Three_, the idea must take no more than one minute to pitch.  So a sort of Dragon's Den, but without the hideous dragons. The audience are then be free to prompt a deeper exploration of the idea. Watch this space... Slugger's prototype 'Idea and a Pint Night' in Oxford2014-03-14 19:00:002

21C, episode 39: Storytelling

"In a network, we are telling our stories and our stories are telling in return."
@johnkellden

21C
An ongoing collection of stories, where the central protagonist is our sense of time, our experience of time and how we flow through it. Particularly, the whorls, whirls, webs, folds and eddies in the spacetime continuum as we leave old, increasingly irrelevant 20C stories behind, in favor of 21C stories, which we are yet to fully embrace, in part because we simply haven't told them yet.

Zen of Small Tasks
There's three, and only three mandatory tasks:
- selfhood
- service and
- synthesis
Your tasklist is a perfect representation of your current (re)alignment between map and territory. Don't just do something - be there!

Miegakure is the first game that lets you explore and interact with a 4D world. In this game, the fourth dimension is not time! It is an actual fourth dimension of space, that works just like the first three dimensions we are familiar with. If you count time, this game is 5D.___Play: Miegakure

Zen of Small Tasks: Post-It Notes

"In a network, we augment our capability to nurture and notice serendipity."
@johnkellden 

Serendipity, Science and the Accident of Curiosity

For anyone who things that major breakthroughs in science happen by design and a process of carefully planned elimination I say, penicillin, the benzene molecule (which led to the formation of organic chemistry), post-it notes, Velcro, Teflon, the microwave oven, vulcanized rubber, the pacemaker, quinine and Viagra, to name but a few. 

Now you can add to the list fire-resistant trees! I kid you not, a happy (in retrospect) accident in Spain has led to the discovery of fire-resistant trees that may change the way we tackle forest and bush fires forever.

Life in the Village, episode 306: Sopot, Poland

ht +Ginger Wagner 

Do not attempt to adjust your computer screens, this Krzywy Domek or "Crooked House" is a shopping center in Sopot, Poland that's seriously bent out of shape! Designed in 2004 by  Szotynscy & Zaleski, the crazy lines make it look like something out of a cartoon. Luckily the interior is a bit more contemporary and less mind bending ;)

Visual Storytelling: Metaphors, Frames and Epistemologies

Good stuff. It's actually a good thing with the bridge being tentative - since that provides part, parsel and parsing for participatory sensemaking.

Each metaphor is a frame of reference, a mini epistemology.

As such, when you step into that story you implicitly adopt the stipulations, presuppositions, and axioms embedded in that field.

Bounded rationality is being stuck in the pull(semantic gravity) of the metaphor, (entativity if you're talking about being stuck in the trap of identification with a social group and having your thoughts constrained by the limitations of that linguistic community...).

There's a hint of a bridge to Sapir-Whorf here but I don't have enough morning in my system yet to untangle this concept yet.

Hands off half-baked idea to fellow semionaut, John Kellden, and goes back for another hour of Zzzzzx.

Life in the Village, episode 305: Dream Home

Creativity is everything
This is the kind of person I admire.

I'm about as creative as a rock. That is why I deeply admire those who create beautiful things and if they do it with few funds it's something to be even more proud of. Steve Areen built himself a home for only $9000 and I've rarely ever seen a dwelling as unusual and beautiful as this one.

Life in the Village, episode 304: Chicago

Everyone has their own story of why we don't put ketchup on hotdogs in Chicago.  Here's the truth behind how it started...

During the Great Depression, tomatoes were expensive.  Therefore, ketchup was consider an expensive condiment and you were considered a snob for using it.  

Ketchup also usually has quite a bit of sugar in it, which just destroys the taste of a good hotdog anyways.

So there you have it.  And if you don't believe me, then listen to Dirty Harry : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5JIpT4GkyM

"Depression Dog" - Some hot dog places serve a version of the Chicago Style hot dog which is known as a "depression dog". This minimalist variation is a natural casing all-beef hot dog served on a steamed plain bun (no poppy seeds) and usually only includes mustard, onion, sport peppers and sometimes relish. This is how Chicago Style hot dogs were originally served by street vendors during the Great Depression. The depression dog is often served with hand-cut french fries that get wrapped up with the dog. Along the way, other ingredients were added to create the classic Chicago Style hot dog we are familiar with today. There are many theories circulating as to how the Chicago dog evolved over the years to include poppy seeds, neon green relish, tomatoes, a pickle spear and celery salt."

21C Community: Distributed, Distributive

How to design thriving cities
"Imagine a shift away from the current centralised city model to a distributive model that focuses on local production, together with consumption in that same place. Rather than a capital city with sprawling suburbs and outlying districts, we would imagine our cities as a connected network of local communities with no special centre of greater advantage."
-- +Ferananda Ibarra 

In 1930, at the onset of the Great Depression, the economist John Maynard Keynes imagined the distant future in his essay, “Economic Possibilities for Our Grandchildren”. Keynes imagined that by 2030 the standard of living would be so high that people would be liberated from want and that we, his grandchildren, would work no more than fifteen hours a week. He believed that this liberation would be driven partly by technology—that technology would free us from work.
Keynes also suggested that the economic pessimism of the time was not justified and that: “We are suffering, not from the rheumatics of old age, but from the growing-pains of over-rapid changes, from the painfulness of readjustment between one economic period and another.”
In this article I discuss this readjustment—what others have called The Great Transition—from a linear to a circular economy and from a centralised to a distributive city structure.___21C Community: Distributed, Distributive

Zen of Small Tasks: Memory

"Every act of perception, is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination."
― Oliver Sacks

Oliver Sacks, the visionary, empathetic and supremely entertaining doctor, scientist and writer has left the world we know, and we are the better for his work in the field of neurology, his books and essays, and his profoundly personal and always accessible observations about the brain, music, illness, healing, life, death...and, essentially, what it means to be human.

Watch, visit his website, listen to him talk, read an essay, buy a book...and investigate the world through the eyes of this inspiring and amazing man.

I have copied a few links below to get you started. I promise you won't regret reading at least these few essays.

Thank you...for reading...

Play: Engagement

Once we adopt a bit of a questing disposition lens, lots of things changes.

+BrainQuake, Inc. has released results that are so startling, their researchers spend more time talking about their methodology than their results. Playing a video game a few hours over a couple of months increased math proficiency considerably.  And the best part? No broccoli at all - chocolate covered or otherwise. I posted about these remarkable results and the gains shown by the other math app that truly is a game: ST Math, this morning.___Play: Engagement

We're adopting this here digital (meaningful) connectivity very slowly. Still, maybe that is a good thing - setting up a robust, dead simple signalling protocol to begin with? One mostly consisting of catgifs, pithy quotes on pretty pictures, strong opinion "there's someone wrong out there and here's why", selfies, content marketing. A crude signalling - yet it is a start.

Life in the Village: Home is where there's friends for dinner

Poetry is never emotions, although emotions remain a leading edge of thought - poetry is when we've managed to losslessly capture the essence of emotion, like the lifegiving rays of the sun, and the fertile soils beneath the vine, distilled into a glass of wine: experience.

Good Morning Dear Fellow Rough Materials

If you give yourself some time, you will eventually be as beautiful as a juniper bush.

1000 year old Bonsai
This juniper has been tested to be more than 1000 years old. Originally collected in the wild in Japan. It is still considered "rough material", as it is still in training. It is located at the Mansei-en bonsai nursery of the Kato family in Omiya, Japan. 

Imagine the care and attention this plant has received. Generally they must be watered daily, and pruned many times during the year. No calling in sick for the "water person".

21C, episode 39: Storytelling

"In a network, we are telling our stories and our stories are telling in return."
@johnkellden

21C
An ongoing collection of stories, where the central protagonist is our sense of time, our experience of time and how we flow through it. Particularly, the whorls, whirls, webs, folds and eddies in the spacetime continuum as we leave old, increasingly irrelevant 20C stories behind, in favor of 21C stories, which we are yet to fully embrace, in part because we simply haven't told them yet.

Zen of Small Tasks
There's three, and only three mandatory tasks:
- selfhood
- service and
- synthesis
Your tasklist is a perfect representation of your current (re)alignment between map and territory. Don't just do something - be there!

Automatic for the People
I for one am happy with my algorithm overlords, because I have logged more than 15K Google+ posts - and lo and behold - the network was not to be feared.
That said - when my Mr Conviviality Robot is ready to drive my Mr Fusion Flying Car - I'd like to be able to have something meaningful to do.

Collaborative Sensemaking
Because we're right here, connecting, using these newfangled digital platform thingies. Also, because we're rediscovering ourselves inbetween narratives. Your gods is what you give your wholehearted attention.

Conversations That Mind And Matter
There's two communities called Conversation, both with around 1400 members, one here in Google+ and another in FB. There's one and only one rule in there:

"Add considered, considerate comments on other people's posts."

I also do twitter, and play a decent fiddle if there's any which chance of a barn dance. No, seriously, all our conversations digitally amplified, augmented and advanced, should co-evolve with our ongoing dialogue, with our own true self, with our significant others, with our insignificant others and with Gaia.

HoA hela natten, HoA hela dan
Conversations That Mind And Matter is also a name for a series of Hangout On Air conversations with some of the coolest people on Google+.

In all other cases, I plead Kurt Vonnegut:

"Be kind."

21C Workflow: The Glitch

"In a network, valuewebs are co-evolving with new functions, new roles, new tasks, new jobs."
@johnkellden

Hacking The System, Part I: The Crack.

This is a very fine graph from Smart Recruiters, explaining in detail parts of what is wrong with the talent aquisition and recruiting process most companies still hang on to. Although I have no personal interest in their business, these guys are changing the perspective.

There are a lot of frustrated HR specialists, Teamleaders and CEO:s who find that their company growth is crippled by and outdated system. Equally there are millions of good people who are overlooked by the system just because they do not fit any of the prerequisites. So let’s do like Smart Recruiters and hack the system. Let us actually change how things work so that people can find a job they like and where their potential is truly appreciated. Let us hack the system and create something that resembles organic growth for the corporate world. And any other type of organization for that matter.___21C Workflow: The Glitch
