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

Daniel Mihai Popescu52,356They are the Survivors, a circle I'm going to share more often, because it has its own dynamic :)I hope you receive the notification this time, and if you receive it, it means you are in the circle, so you are not required to do anything. Just a "+1" from your part will be greatly appreciated, there's no need to spend your precious time with sharing or commenting.For non-members, I think you have to figure out on your own what to do, because usually I don't promise anything, I'm don't barter my circles membership. If you add the circle, it's definitively your gain, so I strongly suggest you to do so. The circle's title is not in vain, it really suggests the circle's dynamic. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  This, like all of my other circles, is an homage to you.Thank you very much for being my friends!2014-06-26 14:46:19412442853

Sagarmatha Café, ep 11: Wreck of the Hesperus

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...

+Doug Breitbart :
+Ron Scroggin Well done, Master Weaver. The tapestry of KE#4 is well on its way, unique, multicolored, with areas of dense knots and crossings, and areas of openness and minimal threads defining spaces undeclared.

Gracias!

+Mani Saint-Victor :
I love simply noise and the ambiance 

+John Kellden :
#digitalsignalprocessing   analog sources, analog audiences.

Angels are nothing but archetypes: better versions of ourselves
Once we've annealed and become better versions of ourselves, we will be better able to perceive more of the world around us as it is - turning what seemingly was noise, into signal.

Eleventy-first

#onthisday  since 1978, Bilbo Baggin’s eleventy-first birthday, the opening of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings“ is celebrated as “Hobbit Day“ all over the world.

“When Mr. Bilbo Baggins of Bag End announced that he would shortly be celebrating his eleventy-first birthday with a party of special magnificence, there was much talk and excitement in Hobbiton." (J.R.R. Tolkien)

Elves wielding magic swords, a race of supermen accomplishing superhuman feats and finally tripping over their own hubris like the fisherman’s wife from the fairy tale, embodied spirits and their world-shaking magics, demons, ghoulies and ghosties and whatnot, Tolkien’s first stories, written over a period of more than ten years and published 50 years later by his son as “Silmarillion” are caught up in the heroics of the old myths and legends of Northern Europe, authored in the shadow of the sorrow, the suffering, the glory and the pain of the Great War’s cataclysm and the following moral and social hangover of the interwar period. Whatever made Tolkien come up with a new kind of hero in the days when the next catastrophe was just around the corner, back then in 1937, he created something very different from the warlords of old, a being living a cosy life in a hole in the ground in a quasi-English countryside, a hobbit, his alter ego Bilbo Baggins.

Goaded by the archaic spiritual leader, the Odin-esque Gandalf, Gandr-alfr, the elf with the magic wand, the smug and rather impossible hero outgrows himself and plays a pivotal role in a heroic quest, even though he is not the one who slays the dragon, leads his men into battle or gets crowned as “King under the Mountain”. But he returns home a wiser, more open-minded Hobbit who had traded respectability for becoming and oddball among his stuffy neighbours. Owning his share of a dragon’s hoard, of course, helped with being a bit on the eccentric side, but Bilbo Baggins and his charming role in a variation of the hero quest had become one of the most loveable characters in recent literature anyway. Reason enough to celebrate his fictional birthday, honouring J.R.R. Tolkien, the creator of myths and his Hobbit heroes who are far more than they seem at first glance. Accordingly, the American Tolkien Society initiated a feast day that is well worth to be observed by all who love Tolkien’s works, those who should and all of us who have not yet lost our sense of wonder.

Depicted below is the approach of the Chinese artist Jian Guo on Bilbo’s eleventy-first in stained-glass style (2004).

21C Platforms: Generosity Catalyzing Network Effects

+Mark Traphagen :
Why Giving Away Your Expertise Is a Winning Strategy

For the last several years I've built my career in digital marketing on one simple idea: the best thing I can do is consistently, relentlessly, doggedly give away as much of my knowledge and experience as I can.

Sounds crazy, right? Below is a link to a slide deck where I explain the Circle of Giving Philosophy.

For more detail, see my full blog post on the topic at http://bit.ly/XjbFpG) 

Why Giving Away What You Do Is the Smartest Thing You'll Ever Do

Drawing from a South Seas island tradition of the Circle of Giving, Mark Traphagen explains why if you're trying to build a brand, the smartest thing you can do is start giving away as much of your expertise as you can.

"Doors are transition affordances, from one spacetime flow, to another."
-- John Kellden

We're moving through harvest. Seeds, thoughts, ideas - what will be their yield? What provisions have you made for your future?

In a network, there's an abundance of people - and in a network, the best place to store knowledge, is in other people. There's a challenge though - how do we harvest other people?

Do we squeeze out all the gooey goodness inside, leaving them as empty husks? Do we reduce them to data, and aggregate them to the tune of millions of vibrant, alive human beings, suddenly turned lifeless one's and zero's?

What story is ours to belong to? What story is made richer to everyone, for including our uniquely own? What happens if we share our unique voice? Will anyone listen? If someone listens, is there movement? 

Turns out, we need doors. We need portals. Thankfully, there's an abundance of portals:

"Any sufficiently advanced blogpost, is indistinguishable from a portal, through which you can get to know another human being."
-- John Kellden

No Aragorning though - no dramatic entrance, no barging into the grand conversation hallway. Instead, find a place - better still, make space, sculpt time, where you and someone else can share a word or three. After which you can decide together:

- virtue is the key
- path is what moves us

Every portal, every beat of your journey, brings a gift - one additional part of your true name and your true voice. Once you know who you are, you will find in yourself a story that will help bring others closer to their portals. Share. Trust. Movement. Flow... 

Conversation Community

add considered, considerate comments on other people's posts...

is the only rule in the community.

Conversation: as a skill, literacy, flow and art
Conversation as an art needs to be rediscovered, rekindled, revitalized. Everything from Pithy Quotes to Profound Pictures - towards shared understanding, visualizing the 21C Commonplace.
http://goo.gl/1lsVzz

comment, context, conversation, context, comment

Inbetween two comments, there's two different contexts. When there's sufficiently shared understanding and context:

conversation

These are the topics of the Conversation Community 
Its five-year mission: to explore generative new words, to sentence ourselves with new life and new sensemaking, to boldly metalogue where no individual conversations have gone before. 

Conversation
Anything that will help spark a conversation, enabling us to rediscover, rekindle and revitalize.

21C Monday Magazine
Once a week, usually sunday evening, GMT+1, Norrkoping, Sweden, there's a curation of fantabulousness, out of the conversations turned cocreation of value from select Conversation Community member posts and comments.

Gaia
As if we are, here and now, fully capable of knowledge gardening - assuming our part, our stewardship, tending our own small part of the garden, as if we never left.

Life in the Village 
If we do, and share our own personal stories, our own recipes - life in the Village - goes on.

Watercooler & Introductions
Here's where you say hi to all others. Here's also where you can gather together with others, sit down and have a cup of coffee, a croissant and a conversation - if there's something on your mind. You can say hi to all others as often as you like.

21C Literacies
Lots of topics with 21C in their title. They're for figuring out the 

whereto, why, what, how

of the 21C, at least the parts of these generative inquiries that can be teased out through us thinking things through together.

Make Things Happen
If we manage to tease out a thought or three - this topic is for the ensuing working out loud, all the way towards developing new products and services.

Knowledge Expeditions, is one of the things we've launched from the Conversation Community.

Play
Work is a subset of play. Play is a subset of life, the universe and everything. The answer remains 42 - and we're 7 bn, soon 9 bn human beings, helping each other figuring out - what's the exam question? Is there a test coming?

Deep Stuff
Where we are figuring out how to behave, given our selves have been fitted with digital selves, enabling connecting with other human beings in every corner of the world.

Visual Storytelling
Pithy Quotes and Profound Pictures. 21C Transmedia Storytelling - all the wondruous things we can do, together, once we help each other visualize who and where we are, and where we're going.

21C Fieldbook, Community, Storytelling, Enaction
The 21C can be enacted. We can sculpt time: 


21C Roadmapping: Sagarmatha Knowledge Expeditions
Yes, there's been some of those. The Watercooler topic works great for figuring out, eg if we'd like to get together, anything from innovating new services like eg Knowledge Expeditions:

Collaborative Sensemaking: Graph Traversal

In a network, in the 21C, there's only one task needed - graph traversal.

"THERE was a child went forth every day;
And the first object he look’d upon, that object he became;
 _And that object became part of him for the day,_
or a certain part of the day, or for many years,
or stretching cycles of years.
-- Walt Whitman
http://goo.gl/dYBcCy

From Data back to Story
Once we rediscover ourselves and begin to rediscover there's other people around - we're also capable of intensely, profoundly (re)humanizing our tools and our technology. Once we do, there's nothing we cannot accomplish.

It's for us to draw 21C diagrams in - until we've helped each other understand what 21C Literacies we need, to perform stewardship, including response-able tool use.

A species went forth...
Once our graphs are understood, our traversals agreed and desire lines in place, we can make small moves, take small steps, build on our movement towards our own future, building schema, augmenting metadata, metatags:

1. Forage for data
2. Search for schema
3. Instantiate schema
4. Solve, resolve, scaffold and redesign
5. Decide and author
6. Traverse (graph, network, fitness space, umwelt, ecosystem)
7. Recurse (patterning, recombining, using eg modular frameworks)
8. Celebrate

ValueWeb Method Cards

Session played in the Knowledge Expedition #4.

21C KNOWLEDGE EXPEDITION #4: DAY 4

We played cards in the temple of the Lhama priests today. Method Cards. The cards elicited our responses to the question "What would the Lhama Priests have us bring back [to the Village] from Sagarmatha?"

The cards we drew bore these legends: Anticipation, Signal, Change, Holon, Interaction, Storyverse, Exaptation, Resilience, Feedback, Understanding

Here is a lovely collage of things we said, in the collegial atmosphere of Expedition #4, in a temple not far from Base Camp, where we are climbing the mountain Sagarmatha:

"The priests would have us take away a readiness for change." - +Bryan Alexander 

"The kind of doable change that I am singularly capable of… - +Tracee Vetting Wolf 

"Always go for the easiest and most achievable shot on the table. Don't get fancy, keep it simple. Odds are always improved that way." - +Doug Breitbart 

"We can attune ourselves for signs of transformation." - +Bryan Alexander  - http://bryanalexander.org/2014/08/24/returning-to-optimism/

"We are about to understand each other better."   +Ron Scroggin

"Inherent in being one within an infinite game, we have free will and we are makers of our own reality." - +Tracee Vetting Wolf 

"Resilience = working with what we've got." - +Ron Scroggin

"Interaction is something I understand. I try to interact as much as possible." - +Lacerant Plainer 

"Exaptation is an essential value/skill to bring back to the Village, exapting to a completely new environment.

"The idea is to set the organization ablaze with technology 
that has high potential to ignite the hearts and minds of employees." - +Joachim Stroh  - Toward Higher Rates of Adoption for Social Business Platforms through Adaptation and Exaptation
http://changeagentsworldwide.com/assets/doc/caww_whitepaper_full_11.pdf 
 
"Success is a direct function of the engagement and responsiveness and experiential participation and sharing of all, singly, collectively and as a new organism." +Doug Breitbart 

"Our Story, through the cards, through the Knowledge Expedition climb, can form a generative sequence 'through':

"_signal, change, exaptation, resilience_"
- +John Kellden 

"Just back from running a leadership development programme, I have finished 13 weeks with 2 groups of 2 and in neither case were people willing to give real feedback.

"It takes courage to really open up at that level and yet if we want peace in our world we need greater transparency." - +Kate Griffiths

Sagarmatha Café, ep 10: Stirring Deep Within

― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar   via  +Tracee Vetting Wolf 

THERE was a band of Sagarmatha travellers went forth one windswept day;

Sagarmatha Café, ep 10: Stirring Deep Within

सुनवाई के सहज धारणा, छू देखकर और महक में सहज ज्ञान का परिणाम है.

I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air,
mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be
happy.” 
― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar   via  +Tracee Vetting Wolf 

THERE was a band of Sagarmatha travellers went forth one windswept day;
And the first sounds they noticed, turned resonant - stirring deep within;
And the sights and memories became part of them for the day, or a certain
part of the day, or for many years, or stretching cycles of years.
  
The deep adventures and discoveries became part of their stories,
And snow, and translucent ice and iridescent reflections, and lapis and diamonds,
and the infinitely patient song of crystal mother mountain,
And the flags and the chimes, and the clouds, and the faithful dog, and his bark,
And the soaring birds below in the valley, and the side of the mountain on fire
by the last rays of the sun,
And all creatures great and small hidden in distant recollection, awaiting our return,  
and the beautiful flowing liquids, sparkling ancient water,
And the echoes as if distant calls from ourselves, within and without —all became part of them.


(with a nod of gratitude to Walt Whitman)

Deep Stuff: Maven

MAVEN arrives at Mars in 4 days!

On September 21st, NASA's next spacecraft - MAVEN - arrives at Mars, beginning its mission to study the atmosphere of Mars.

In order to get into orbit around Mars, MAVEN has to change its velocity by more than 4,300 kph.

One of the cool first missions for MAVEN was totally unexpected. It's going to image Comet Siding Springs, which will pass only 130,000 km from Mars. In fact, Mars is going to pass right through the coma of the comet.

Zen of Small Tasks: Small Measures

Will add more here re dimensions of time...

“Time is not a reality, but a concept or a measure” (Antiphon the Sophist)

“Throw him out – he’s breaking my heart!” The baron’s words still rang in his ears and Franz Joseph Pospischil’s whole composure gave a new meaning to the word “crestfallen”. The skinny young man skulked down Renngasse in the shadow of Palais Rothschild where the steam-driven Fiacre that had brought him here still waited. The cabby cast a cold eye on the skinny youth in his raddled frock coat who staggered on patched boots towards Ratzenstadel in Magdalenengrund, the poor quarter in Vienna’s 6th district, clutching books and maps in one atrophic arm while a spider-like hand clung like grim death to a box that, admittedly, stood out as oddly prosperous from this beggar student incarnate. In fact, the long hours Mrs Pospischil, Franz Josef’s old mother, had worked as a housekeeper in the new palais on the Ringstraße had provided the gulden that had paid for the redwood casing as well as the brass instruments, the ink and the stamps her son had used while corresponding with scholars in London, Paris and St Petersburg and the long hours Pospischil junior had spent in comparing the calculations in the book the family had brought from Prague with the latest research results on ancient Babylonian astronomy, Ptolemy’s epicycles and the works of Abraham ibn Esra, al-Kindi and Abu Ma’shar. And while the rays of the setting autumn sun that crept through the steam clouds that covered Vienna since decades painted the city in a reddish golden light that Turner might have conceived if he had caught a really bad inflammation of the eyes, Pospischil came to a conclusion. He would listen to the music that sounded when the spheres separated. Even without the funds Rothschild would never provide anyway. Not in Nineveh, in Alexandria or in Toledo, but right here in the Vienna Woods, in places where the ancients had worshipped their gods before the Romans came. He had just to alignt his calculations by means of the machine he had constructed. That was what it was for after all. To pinpoint the location and the time when the rotation of the spheres opened gates to other worlds. Pospischil was on his way.

Depicted below is a faithful reproduction of Franz Joseph Pospischil’s machine, originally conceived in another time and another place, now on exhibition in the #wunderkammer  as designed by a young artist who calls himself osiskars and found on:

Life in the Village, part 49: Enlightenment

Ht +Anne-Marie Valton

Family matters

   Loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, equanimity… 'Others' is too generic though for practical first steps in the practice of generosity, patience, perseverance, equanimity, cultivation, wisdom: 'family' is a more practical context to start with (note: 'practical', I didn't say 'easy')!

   It's quite easy in the midst of one's family to develop conceit, based on any spiritual progress one has made. This is easily recognised as an unhelpful attitude though.
   This isn't to say that one's progress should be denied, but that the projection of a separation is unwholesome: there's only progress if it serves all, not just yourself.
   Serving others might start with one's improved temper and lower reactivity to provocations… but there's further to go! Once you're wiser and more generous, there are many opportunities where and when you can help more than merely staying calm and composed.

   You might e.g. kindly get people to reflect on the tendencies they embody. You might also actually start embodying your own insights more.

   One way to look at this is as follows: prior to your progress, you participated in the status quo (maybe as a victim; maybe as a silent, this-is-not-my-problem, bystander; maybe as a perpetrator), and as such you perpetuated whatever tendency you came against and didn't wisely engage with… that is to say, you participated in perpetuating (or creating or, at the very least, not ceasing) the very tendencies you can now discern as unwholesome. Since you participated in the status quo, you do hold some keys to amend what you've done, if you're willing to look hard enough at your past contribution (be it active or passive).

   Another way to look at this is as follows: one of the biggest gifts we can give to others is… not  to label them! Realise 'your' selflessness but also others': allow others to grow out of old tendencies.
   Projections on genders are ubiquitous, and saying the right thing about universal buddha-nature isn't enough! Statistics on gender equality might be difficult to interpret (e.g. Italy ranks among the countries where women do a lot more domestic chores than men… but it also ranks among the countries with the smallest pay gap!)(e.g. some statistics count how many hours men spend on domestic chores, but this is not comparable between countries with a lot of automation and countries where everything is done manually… hence "proportion of house chores" seems more relevant) but this isn't an excuse.
   While traditional gender roles don't necessarily mean inequality when one considers all  hours of work (paid and unpaid) as contributions to the family's welfare (cf. e.g. cdn.static-economist.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/original-size/images/print-edition/20140726_USC370.png for the US evolution of proportions but with pretty constant and equal totals), one has to consider whether traditional gender roles are taken out of choice or out of appropriate wisdom in response to a specific context… or out of indoctrination (under the guise of gender-appropriate education), peer pressure or even oppression. One of the biggest gifts we can give to others is not  to label them (gplus.wallez.name/C4T75afe47T) and, in relation to genders, this means not to automatically  attribute the domestic chores to women or the house repairs to men, it also means not to treat 'customers' or 'collaborators' differently based on gender projections (e.g. assuming women know nothing about cars, or men about children)… Opportunities for laypeople to embody spiritual insights are numberless! This is the bodhisattva path!

   Entanglement doesn't have to be a consequence of inter-dependence; the ignorant ordinary mind is what makes it to be.
   One is 'caught' in entanglement only as long as one sees separate, individual ropes of specific colours… without seeing a wider process. Concentration (meditation) allows to single out any unwholesome rope (tendency, not person!) that needs ceasing, when the opportunity is present and such a focus is what the situation demands. Mindfulness (meditation) allows to see the bigger picture when such a wider perspective is what the situation demands. The Middle Way is found in acting in accordance with what the situation demands, rather than with personal biases, prejudices and preferences.

21C Literacies: Collaboration

Ht +dawn ahukanna

As a leader, your default mode should be to share everything with as much of your organization as you can. And no, I don’t mean “everything that wouldn’t look bad if it leaked and doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings,” I mean everything you possibly can.

Leaders always think they know what's critical to share. But if you arm smart creatives with as much information as you can, they’ll be able to solve problems and identify opportunities you might never come up with.

Life in the Village, part 48: People Are Strangers Until You Smile

Beauty is instant action at a distance, and the shortest distance between two hearts is a smile.

Had to share this little snapshot which made me smile.
Neither of us spoke the other's language. So I simply smiled. Huge. She smiled back. Huger. Then it was game on.
Her off-camera companion was easily in his mid 80's and in hindsight. I wish I'd thought to capture him as well.

Visual Storytelling: Milky Way

The Milky Way offers wayfinding.
A pack of Coyotes are howling,
while pursuing their path.

I was setting up the tripod for this picture when a pack of coyotes began howling and yelping to each other, and as I was framing the shot the pack quieted down before moving closer to see what I was doing. At least that's what I imagined they were up to since I could hear them walking through the brush. I'll admit it was a little distracting, and I suddenly realized how much I ignore the ringing from Tinnitus as I tried to keep track of their movement in the dark.
