Daniel Mihai Popescu61,295This circle is called Survivors!  It is dedicated to all of you :)I waited to fill it a little more with some new faces :)I hope you are notified, if not, nothing changes.Just a "+1" is more than enough (and I speak here for the members) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  It is an homage to you, so there's no need to share it, there are no conditions. If I forgot any of you, please forgive me and tell me, instead of uncircle me without notice :)I never was in "follow me and I'll follow you back" game, not here, nor on Twitter, where people are more liberal :)I'm out of the sharing circles game, as most of you already have noticed, and it's up to anyone to do whatever he/she/it likes with that :) I thank to any of you who kept in their public shared circles the time I have been absent (there was a very motivated reason for it), and I'm absolutely passive about the people who took me out of their public circles, considering they have not an immediate benefit from that. Oh, and I'm very glad because some circle spammers have unfollowed me. I do not really deserve their company :)Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!2014-10-18 18:08:10469383955

Dr. John Cassone12,100Dr. John's Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. This circle changes each time I share it based on how people are engaging and sharing content.This is not a megacircle.People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:►   I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: ►   Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.►  I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:►   When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. ►   Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. ►   Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-09-07 19:22:331921015

Dr. John Cassone11,568Dr. John's July Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. I've also included some of my new engagers.This is not a megacircle. People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:> I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: > Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.> I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:> When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. > Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. > Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-07-13 19:18:1119017315

IBM Watson

I just used Watson User Modeling service to analyse the text in my last G+ post. Watson uses “linguistic analytics to extract a spectrum of cognitive and social characteristics from the text data”.  Watson User Modeling service needs at least 100 words. For me, the most extreme personality traits (based on one single post) were:

Top (>92%)
Imagination, Intellect, Authority-challenging, Cautiousness, Openness to change

Bottom (<4%)
Excitement-seeking, Gregariousness, Cheerfulness, Outgoing, Conservation

The result is also visualised. 

After using the service you can rate the quality of the result. I suppose this feedback is then used to make Watson better. 

In my humble opinion, this is simultaneously fascinating and scary.

Good Morning Dear 21C Conversationalists

Ht +John Verdon​

Happy birthday Annie Lennox:
"There's this youth culture that is really, really powerful and really, really strong, but what it does is it really discards people once they reach a certain age. I actually think that people are so powerful and interesting - women, especially - when they reach my age. We've got so much to say, but popular culture is so reductive that we just talk about whether we've got wrinkles, or whether we've put on weight or lost weight, or whether we've changed our hair style. I just find that so shallow."

21C Workflow: Loomio

+Michel Bauwens :
I really love Loomio. It’s an exceptional, well-developed collaborative tool that mimics general assembly-style consensus decision making and scales it up for asynchronous web usage. Additionally, it was originally developed by activists in New Zealand during Occupy Wellington, who collaborated with local, social enterprises and formed a co-op. This is precisely the sort of initiative we catalogue and promote at the P2P Foundation so, now that Loomio are running a crowdfunding campaign to make their technology even more useful, we’d like to give them our full support.

Please read the campaign details and watch the video below. Spread the word, too – it really is a great project.

21C Literacies: Storytelling Craft

Over the past many years I have read, literally, dozens of books on story craft—from John Gardner and Chekhov to Le Guin and Hemingway, and just about everyone in-between. And as I read, I underlined and wrote down their thoughts on the various elements of fiction which I then compiled into an ever-growing compendium of quotes.

For anyone interested, I have made this collection of quotes on our craft available in “The Elements of Fiction” which you can download for free from Smashwords, here: http://goo.gl/KES0pw. I hope you will find it useful.___21C Literacies: Storytelling Craft

Making a Dent In the Universe
Many apologies in advance for the big flaw with the above list. There's nothing wrong with anyone of the human beings mentioned, they will, individually and collectively, make a convivial dent in the universe.

Needs Moar Women
No, what's wrong is purely on me. I've only included two women in the list. Which means you have to help me by suggesting all the women that rightfully should be on the list. If you do, I'll promise I'll update posthaste. Thank you in advance. Needless to say, if you feel I've put you on the spot by including you here, again, my bad, give me a shout and I will remove you.

Uplift
Oh, and uplift is basically us as a civilization transitioning from the old, increasingly funny-smelling old monolith narratives, to the new narratives which will be designed and ready to kickstart our new spiffy society, around 2036. We will stumble and make complete fools of ourselves along the way, but you already kinda sorta knew that.

Conversational learning happens when the participants holds a space larger than, and more inclusive than, their own individual agenda.

When there is such a space, characterised by both inclusivity and curiosity - collective intelligence emerges.

In contrast - when a group of individuals stick to their individual agenda and are low on curiosity, ie, they've already made up their minds what they are going to say, this results in discussion and debate. 

If the conversational container holds through among other qualities, the relationships and trustflow, the collective intelligence is then channeled and expressed by all the individual participants, adding their own unique voice and vector.

The resultant vector can be described as scenius, collective intelligence gathered from and expressed by the participants applied to a particular topic and context -  in a particular time and place.

Scenius, when applied to a particular topic, resolves some of the dynamics inside the conversational exchange, the complex responsive processes between the participants.

By doing so, there's a delivering of a momentum as well as a dynamic context out of the degree of narrative alignment. Narrative alignment is what happens when we update our maps and models, in favour of reality.



+Colin Walker :
We all try to create that spark that ignites the fires in others but we are reliant on an unconscious serendipity to truly establish that deep connection that makes the ordinary extraordinary. 

+John Kellden :
Pure brilliance +Colin Walker - now, how to reliably access serendipity? Or is it impossible, and we need to use intuition, hunches, luck?

+Colin Walker :
That's the secret Bateson talks of - if anyone can truly accomplish that they will change the world. 

+John Kellden :
My hunch is we need the "we" - to achieve it. As for how, my guess is it needs to be a sufficiently eclectic approach. A bit like #seo writ large...

+Joachim Stroh :
Sort of an Uncanny Valley [1], but cloaked in dance, so it affords a positive experience.

+John Kellden :
That's a magnificent creative translation +Joachim Stroh my hunch is all our emotions is the fitness space. All the other fitness space stuff, is us trying to draw as faithful representations of it as possible.

Provisional definitions:

Emotion
The essential unit of experience given constraints.

Play
A process of meaningmaking where constraints are transformed into contrived contingencies affording learning.

The closest thing to representing the fitness space from the lens of emotion (which actually can't be done, if my hunch holds water, but anyhoo) - it could be likened to a mix of tensegral seamless fabric and bricolage.

The more seeming seamless, the happier the emotion. The more bricolage, the more of school of hard knocks and the more effort we have to put in, to "overcome" our emotions.

 
A bit of a leap:

This fabric thingy, uncanny valley, death valley, canny valley - it could be that

Hell, Purgatory and Heaven occupy the same space, the only difference being what spoons we bring to the Smorgasbord.

With too much Ego Attachment as our favourite Spoon - then we believe we're in hell. A bit like Project Management extended to all parts of life.
ping to +Barry Kort  fellow traveller...   :)

In the middle of battling ourselves, individuation, letting go of our fave spoons, that would be Purgatory.

Heaven would then be:

"There is no spoon."
-- that young guy in the Matrix

+Joachim Stroh :
This,

"hell is .. Project Management extended to all parts of life"

is brilliant, so is the definition of heaven. Where did I leave my spoon?

+John Kellden :
Please don't tell this to any Project Manager...

On second thought, chances are they already know.  :)

+John Verdon :
One key to 'designed serendipity' ( see +John Hagel  ) is establishing robust and dynamic networks of loose ties where we can regularly encounter unknown (people, ideas, things, etc.) 

But the other aspect that enables us to seize the affordances and opportunities of designed serendipity are  certain dispositions such as the questing and social disposition. In addition there is the collective tacit knowledge (a social literacy) that enables those who are involved in the serendipitous encounter to have a 'fluency' to scale their learning in these encounters. This fluency (and its foundation in collective tacit knowledge) is very well discussed in Harry Collins' book "Tacit and Explicit Knowledge"  http://goo.gl/0xL7jb  
Collins is a Distinguished Research Professor of Sociology and director of the Centre for the Study of Knowledge, Expertise, and Science at Cardiff University and has researched in detail how scientists work - create/discover new knowledge and share it. Well worth the read.

+John Kellden :
Very insightful +John Verdon and, that book probably needs to be added to the Meeting Minds literary corner.

I'm in the middle of thinking whether it might be a good idea to do HoA Hangouts On Air, as one part of the Sagarmatha Café, 21C Enaction, Make Things Happen topics. This would enable us to have one both very tangible social object to talk about, yet also allow us to choose books, angles, perspectives and metalogues, rich and deep enough to be of value to both participants and listeners/readers...

+John Verdon :
It's always great to have real-time conversation with like minds :) It's the devil lurking in the scheduling that is thorn. :) 

When were you thinking. 

+John Kellden 
I'd like you to know that you can ping me for a Hangout whenever +John Verdon .

Holding space for further unfolding of storylines and tangible outcomes through HoA events, comes mid/late Jan 2015...

+Ron Scroggin :
The "something" that happens in a performance can't be controlled, but it is served by front-loading with study, preparation and unconscious marination. And aspects of the performance are fed back into the front-loading for subsequent performances.

+John Kellden :
Yes.

Symbology is sometimes too easy, and can be montra-ed.  The actors are the slave, the dreamer and the thief.  At a meta level, they just stir away at the stewing pot.  The angle of the spoon is just the starting point of one's placement on Joachim's fractal curve.  It is relative to the sub-set of your awareness, and the recursion you enjoy.

Our Future Societies: Beyond Dualism

"The narrative I choose, in order to navigate this ever-expanding domain, is one of co-creation. I choose empathy. I choose love."
-- +Gunther Sonnenfeld 

What could possibly be more fitting to amplify on the darkest day of the year, than love? And, since we have developed these digital tools, to connect clear across the planet, we are beginning to realize that our suffering, stems in no small part from outdated beliefs - eg the one I snuck in here already, as if the Northern Hemisphere darkest day spiehl, is somehow THE perspective. In Australia, in South Africa, it's not.  :)

As for our future societies, what if they will be co-created, starting right here, right now?

"We made it? What happened? We happened."

Because we could.

+Ron Scroggin : 
Thanks for the memories. There and back. And for the feeling of the symphony-beyond-words, which also illustrates that the expedition is an experience beyond words, although much of its enactment is through the medium of words (and pictures, sounds and physical props, all of which the experience goes beyond...). Those three dots were for you, Susan...

-- could you pass the catnip please?

+Marcy Luikart :
I think we had a stow away cat on our expedition. 

+Ron Scroggin :
: )    That's right +Marcy Luikart! Her name is Minerva, +Becky Coleman ?

+Doug Breitbart : 
I have to confess, I actually had a pet mouse in my vest pocket. His name is Speck, and Minerva, he is off limits. . . not dinner. ;-}
 
+Marcy Luikart :
I should have brought my poodle.  A sherpoo.

The expedition they are referring to:

Knowledge Expeditions
http://kelldentours.com

"Welcome to your next quest, a Knowledge Expedition, bringing you along a route slightly less travelled..."

A story unfolding. Weaving fragments in real-time. Co-creating beautiful artifacts. You are part of an expedition that sets out to explore new territories and reach new heights. Welcome aboard:

A small group of interested travellers gather at the Sagarmatha Café, in the Conversation Community.

At the departure date, we climb on board the Feynman Airstream, which will transport us to our chosen destination.

When we arrive at Base Camp, we go through all the necessary gear and agree on what sights we'd like to see after which we walk, talk and climb, explore to our hearts delight and then head back to our camp, preparing for the next leg of the journey.

As we reach further and climb higher, we get to play, sense, respond and perform, we get to encounter challenges and deal with contingencies in order to develop and improve our action, reflection, listening, communication and collaboration skills - all this in an immersive, collaborative, digital environment - an unfolding transmedia storyline with you as the hero.

Every journey brings new perspectives, unique insights, ideas and gifts for you to bring back home to your village and to your market in the village square. 

To the side of the Sagarmatha Café countertop, there's a brand new 21C Artifact, one of +Joachim Stroh's inventions, a 

Holonic Browser
http://kelldentours.com/tour/holons

On one of the walls right next to the Feynman Tannu Tuva Coffee Machine, there's one of +Ron Scroggin's dispatches http://goo.gl/WY60zU from one of the Knowledge Expeditions:

Working together in a shared metaphorical space of our creation, a mountain world, we have reached the highest point yet in our climb toward Wherever the Story Leads -- and beyond.

Seven of us (six humans, one virtual dog) are exploring, expanding and tweaking the workings of the 21C Knowledge Expeditions, preparing for the next trek up the mountain with community members.

On previous expeditions with travelers from the Community, we climbed the mountain Sagarmatha, and returned to the Village (the Conversation Community) with what we learned about social presence, levels of collaboration in a human-digital environment, and patterns of sustainability.

We are using this shared imaginary world as a creative workbench and learning space with application to perhaps any field, organizational or personal, and developing affordances and metrics for its process.

We are working as if with highly advanced, nearly telepathic network technology, well beyond our current actual platform capability, piggybacked on Google+.

The result is we are effectively working in the future of social reality: enactive intersubjectiviry. Through our effort, will, and intent, what will be has become what is. This report is from the future.

Tonight's camp is at a steep angle of ascent, paralleling our R&D progress. Even as we sleep, we are hugging Gravity's wall, as we loosen her grip, edging closer to the black of Space. Whatever we find we will bring back.


At another table, there's a deep dialogue, bordering on metalogue, where +joe breskin remembers working on a song:

"I went to the Oregon Country Fair the first time with a pretty good guide and interpreter, a person in the middle of a lot of the action, and yet even digging in as deeply as I could, a lot of the machine remained hidden from me. And a great deal of time and effort was wasted because I could not design interfaces or connections - I could not find out how the pieces were supposed to be fitting together until they were all completed, painted and installed. So I came back with an unfinished song, a verse that I still have not figured out what to do with ... 

The song is about how people sometimes get the information or direction they seek, and why they often do not. I suppose that it stems from something I half-remember from the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland. The idea is that we all have to ask other people for advice, for help, for guidance. And we rarely have enough of the puzzle in our hands to know which pieces we are really missing or what we ought to be looking for. So we rarely stumble on the magic words to ask the right question on the first try.

But when we are the person who is being asked for help, we have the option of answering the question that was asked, or the question that was underlying the question that was asked - the question that was buried under the questioner's confusion and their limited vocabulary - the question that was trying to be asked. 

Most of the time most people do the former, they answer the question that was asked, because it is almost always easier than really getting involved and because there is little or no risk of rebuff for second-guessing the questioner. 

The song was a stillborn attempt to provide a procedure for getting/helping people to ask the question under the question. 

It goes:
Question Number One is "What's your question?"  
 
Question Number Two is "Who should know?" 

But Question Number Three is "Will they tell you, what they think you REALLY need to know?"

Just as true today as it was 20 years ago ...
--  +joe breskin    http://goo.gl/Wueod3


Inbetween Sagarmatha Café conversations, stories remembered, insights shared, next legs of our journeys mapped out through words, maps, legends and tall tales, +John Kellden  walks to the mic at the small scene, asks for a moment of silence, and invites anyone who so wishes, to join him in a song:


Let me bring you high on a climb,
to make you see much further, than you would know;
Dancing through all wind and snow,
all our efforts, turned to flow,
hold us steady as we go:

Join the chorus, if you can;
it'll make of us, a merry band...

Let us find our voice and our name,
prayer flags and stanzas clear through windy maze -
To still our thirst and heal our gaze,
our stumbling turned a newfound zest,
as we take small steps along our quest:

Life's long winding road is here -
we'll climb along in winded cheer!

Let us bring back all things refined,
ancient chimes and new songs for all villagers -
Greetings given 'round the bend,
a movement clear beyond pretend,
what once a stranger, now turned friend...

A traveller through these wasteful times -
with heartfelt prose  -   enacting rhymes...

Let us bring you tales from our climb,
to make our village prosper, more than we'd know;
Spring-time flowers amidst the snow,
rediscovered tunes, unfolding flow
in this brand new day, as one we go...


It's perfectly possible for you to sing along, once you know the tune:
Songs from the Wood:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2MgU7PNHgw

At the heart of all Knowledge Expeditions, is your quest, your rediscovering your own voice, your own unfolding storyline, your own gift to bring back, rekindling...

Of course he went to Wall Street. And of course the first thing that came up was the SEC sanction and $5 million fine he paid for operating an enormous front-running scheme. A total zero-sum game.

Today is the shortest day of the year, courtesy of our planetary inclinations and celestial movements through space. Today is a day of celebration, eagerly awaiting a brand new monday bringing gifts. This night is also secretly, a night where light itself celebrates, light that can manifest as a bright spark, a new insight, a fourth candle lit, a hearth around which we gather together and share stories, lighting our next steps...

Visual Storytelling: Escher

Escher revisited

Not all of Escher's illusions are impossible from a topological standpoint... so we took one of his famous pictures and turned it into a greeting card, which of course also folds flat for envelope storage. Though I must admit that my artistic assistants have a few more years to go before their people reach Escher quality!

Deep Stuff: Ten Dimensions

Or eleven...

Do you ever wonder whether there's something more important than the everyday concerns that are imposed upon us by the dominant culture? Like, what if the universe really is a hologram? What are the implications if this is true? Would anything about the dominant culture change? Should anything change? Does the possibility of a holographic universe suggest that a re-evaluation of our values and priorities as a species might be appropriate?___Deep Stuff: Ten Dimensions

21C Stewardship: Ecology, economy, equity

A commons and commoning disposition cannot happen too soon.

A paper titled “Ecologically sustainable but unjust? Negotiating equity and authority in common-pool marine resource management” co-authored by Sarah Klain, Rachelle Beveridge and myself was just published in Ecology & Society. The article asks: a) whether natural resource management can be ecologically sustainable but unjust at the same time, and b) if distribution of harvesting rights and socio-economic benefits and inclusion in management is unfair, how might access to resources and governance institutions be re-oriented. We explore these questions through a case study of indigenous peoples’ involvement in commercial sea cucumber and geoduck fisheries on the central coast of British Columbia, Canada using Elinor Ostrom’s social-ecological systems framework and common pool resource design principles.___21C Stewardship: Ecology, economy, equity

Zen of Small Tasks: Celebrate Saturnalia

#onthisday   in 211 CE in Rome, Emperor Caracalla had his brother Geta murdered during the celebrations of the Saturnalia at the home of their mother.

“Antoninus wished to murder his brother at the Saturnalia, but was unable to do so; for his evil purpose had already become too manifest to remain concealed, and so there now ensued many sharp encounters between the two, each of whom felt that the other was plotting against him, and many defensive measures were taken on both sides. Since many soldiers and athletes, therefore, were guarding Geta, both abroad and at home, day and night alike, Antoninus induced his mother to summon them both, unattended, to her apartment, with a view to reconciling them. Thus Geta was persuaded, and went in with him; 3 but when they were inside, some centurions, previously instructed by Antoninus, rushed in a body and struck down Geta, who at sight of them had run to his mother, hung about her neck and clung to her bosom and breasts, lamenting and crying: "Mother that didst bear me, mother that didst bear me, help! I am being murdered." (Cassius Dio)

The odd family crisis is very probably a common feature of high holidays and festivals since time immemorial. And neither does the Roman Empire nor its Imperial families make an exception. Admittedly, the sons of Emperor Septimus Severus hated each other with a vengeance since they could crawl. And the emperor did his best not to give undue preferences to one of his sons, but then, Caracalla was the older, by just a year, though, and he was made Caesar and then Augustus first, got the military command in Britain, while younger Geta had to do the boring administration job in Eboracum and probably always got the more expensive presents on Saturnalia anyway. The emperor had corresponding forebodings on his mind about how this would end after his death and planned a partition of the empire, the west for Caracalla and the east for Geta, but Septimus Severus got a cold fighting the Caledonians in the deep of winter and died in February 211 and Caracalla and Geta were proclaimed joint emperors.

Trying to hold the family wealth together, the young emperors’ mother Julia Domna spoke out against dividing up the empire between her sons and the two, back in Rome, continued to intrigue against each other and then the holiday season came and Caracalla finished first again. Geta did rather not expect his brother to plan mischief during family celebrations with their mother present, but far from it. As soon as family and friends laid down at the set table, Caracalla’s hirelings gatecrashed the party, Geta, then 22 years old, fled into the arms of his mother and was stabbed down nonetheless, Julia Domna was injured at the hand while trying to ward of the blows from her son. Immediately afterwards, Caracalla ordered a damnatio memoriae against his brother, his images were painted over, coins with his likeness melted down and what not. Caracalla’s relationship towards his mother was, quite understandably, damaged beyond repair and Saturnalia celebrations with the Severans would never be the same again.

A political purge followed and hundreds, maybe thousands of Geta’s former followers were executed by the new sole emperor. Those who survived finally managed to assassinate Caracalla while he campaigned in Parthia, allegedly while the emperor answered the call of nature. However, Caracalla probably had ruined another celebration, this time to provide for a casus belli with the Parthian empire. According to the contemporary historian Herodianus, the emperor had plagued the Parthian king Artabanus to give him the hand of his daughter and when the Middle Eastern monarch finally agreed and the guests assembled for the royal wedding in the palace at Arbela, Caracalla ordered his household troops to slaughter the assembled company including the bride. If the story is true or not, Caracalla’s death during the campaign forced his immediate successor Macrinus, who was at least co-responsible for his assassination, to abandon the war and pay huge reparations to Artabanus. But by then, the doors were wide open for the coming Rome’s Crisis of the Third Century anyway. 

Depicted below is Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema’s imagination of the happy Imperial family during games at the Circus Maximus, with Geta standing between the two women at the balcony rail and Caracalla leaning brooding to a column in the background to the right of their seated parents Septimus Severus and Julia Domna (1907)
