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 18:08:10469333748

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

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.

21C Platforms: Needs of the Citizens

"In a network, narratives and data co-evolve."

"While cybernetic feedback loops do allow us to use scarce resources more effectively, the easy availability of fancy thermostats shouldn’t prevent us from asking if the walls of our houses are too flimsy or if the windows are broken. A bit of causal thinking can go a long way. For all its utopianism and scientism, its algedonic meters and hand-drawn graphs, Project Cybersyn got some aspects of its politics right: it started with the needs of the citizens and went from there. The problem with today’s digital utopianism is that it typically starts with a PowerPoint slide in a venture capitalist’s pitch deck.

Jean-François Noubel, Collective Intelligence: Evolving The 'We' Inside The 'I'
-- +Jean-François Noubel 


+John Verdon :
Collective intelligence has become the science that explores the question: how can multiple I's build smart conscious We's? As a researcher in this field, the reverse question fascinates me too: how does the collective operates in the I, exactly like in the movie The Matrix? Language, social codes, technologies, money, beliefs, food, time... all these collective forces shape the way we think, the way we see the world, how we innovate and make decisions. We call them invisible architectures. Ignoring them turns us into free as fishes in the fishbowl.

+Akira Bergman : 
It is a resonance chamber;

How does the operation of the collective in the I, operate in the collective?

+John Verdon 
It is a resonance chamber - an orchestra of strings ... 

That's a good question - maybe it's a matter of levels -meta-levels. The collective in the I - is like the ground -enabling the figure and then when the I becomes reflective of the ground (understanding the collective 'I am because We are') the ground becomes the figure - presupposing a new form of ground ... that is I/WE .... And perhaps this is an inviting of a much more extensive ground beyond the grouping of close and loose ties - a ground of a collective audience. 

The ground of imagination? :)

+Akira Bergman : 
The I is also a collective; a collective of cells. They are the ground of the I, like the ground of the collective are the I's. Between these two grounds, or the limits or the boundaries, there are the modes of resonance or the imagination or the colors; countless other collectives or the groupings of the I's forming and reforming while the boundaries change and adapt in response to the internal and external conditions of the times.

Perhaps our cells will change in response to the demands put on the I's by the needs of the collective, as the collective itself changes. Perhaps the collective will also change by the demands of the I's, since reflection would have to be both ways. The I is in fact in the middle between the cells and the collective. It is the agent or the mediator.

+John Verdon : 
:)  yes of course the I is a society of itself (own cells) and of a much larger microbial ecology. There is only I-in-society and society-in-I A determination of boundary be an observer or view. 

We do know that a single event can affect the organism's gene expression and that change in I - can be propagated to offspring. So maybe it's a more precise description to talk about 'boundaries-for-what' versus absolute boundaries.

Gaia: Putting Ourselves Back Together

Maybe this is a parable.

Something like 25 or 30 years ago my then wife and I used to buy really big jigsaw puzzles w/o looking at the box and get the person at the counter to dump all the parts into a paper bag and leave the box at the store. That made the puzzle a lot more challenging, and a little more like life.

Another part of that parable is an observation - that almost everyone I know seems to want simple answers ... and to get them, most people try to boil complex "situations" down to a series of smaller, disconnected "problems" - which can be imagined as soluble but are of course, in most cases, simply constructs. The solution space is often constrained by these constructs, by the problem definition. 

Because, I suppose, the uncertainty of reality is apparently uncomfortable. 

I do not think there are going to turn out to be any simple answers to most of the questions that I consider genuinely worth asking. And recently, I have started reminding people of this - that as far as I can tell, I have never imagined and actually cannot conceive of a way that I - or anyone else - would ever actually understand how the world (read universe) works or our place in it. 

Ocean temps, air currents, pH, albedo, where the rain falls, particulates, ozone holes, over-fishing, the list is of "problems" almost endless ... without even touching on the deeper problems of consciousness,  and perception, and the terrible distorting filters of belief. 

That said, I really like getting sparkly new pieces of understanding to play with, like this one. Parts of a gigantic deterministic jigsaw puzzle I've got spread out on the table, that even though I know it's really just a hopeless vanity, I can't quite wean myself from trying to figure out what the picture is about.  ___Gaia: Putting Ourselves Back Together

"What people think/feel/do, how cultures form and the influence of system changes."
-- +martin shervington   http://goo.gl/kWfexH

Some of the things I like best with Martin is his ability to keenly discern and suggest a highlight in a video or hangout on air, his combination of utter seriousness and dedication with helpfulness and playfulness, and his enthusiasm. He's also pioneering new digital community and business models.

"...Apps, gadgets, hearts, likes. Taps, clicks, swipes, screens. These numb us with comfortable titillation. They thwart us from dreaming the unimaginable. They make us altogether too sensible to ever pursue of the unreasonable.
...
“Let them call Ubers!!” is something like the “let them eat cake” of a new gilded age of…
...
Things that make people…butlers, chauffeurs, maids, courtesans…debtors, sharecroppers, zombies…don’t change anything. They are merely more of the same. They redeem no human suffering; enhance no human potential; spark no human accomplishment; transform no human being.

They do not create anything truly worthy that might not have been otherwise. There is no greatness, nobility, goodness, justice, or truth in them. There is merely the same old ugliness, cruelty, despair, and self-deception that has always been.

And so. If you believe that is all there is to changing the world, here is what you are.

You are a pessimist. You are a fatalist. And you are a totalitarian. You believe in…butlers, chauffeurs, maids, courtesans…the weak serving the mighty…the mighty offering them the lowest-common-denominator…and the purveyors of all that owning the world.

And so you have not changed the world at all. For people since the beginning of time have resigned themselves to…all that. The story of mankind is the story of pessimists, fatalists, and totalitarians.

But the point of mankind’s story is the rebels, renegades, and outlaws who ignored them, scorned them, and damned themselves to believe. In the ascendancy of life, of greatness, and of necessity. And triumphed.
...
You. Standing shoulder to shoulder with the person you were meant to be. The one who changes the world. And triumphs, at last, laughing, just for the briefest moment, against death, decay, cruelty, time, undoing, *all the hidden fatalism in every last heart.

Let us change the world. As it was meant to be changed."

+John Kellden : 
One of the core reasons for why there is a 21C Enaction topic:

We are very ingenious and resourceful resisting change,  when the world is changing, we prefer to remain inside our own word-cloud, our own language, our own narrative (even when it really is someone else's). This creates a near impenetrable barrier, resistant to almost all proactive change, in favor of change only taking place as a reactive last resort, only after having tried all old existing coping strategies:

blissful lack of awareness, denial, confusion, renewal for renewals sake

As a baseline comms protocol in networks, there's nothing wrong with

catgifs, selfies, content marketing

As network strategies, being resilient in the face of uncertainty and change, all three are suboptimal.

 
+Alex Schleber :
+John Kellden I just added this comment to +Steve Faktor's share of this:

"...In fairness I would point out that the purveyors of the "sharing economy" are responding to needs that arose due to things that were not of their own making (AKA the Great Recession, in not insignificant part brought on by the Banksters, as well as the madness of boundless consumerism overall).

Needs for people to still make SOME money in this "new normal" of the Precariat, asf. It's not clear we will truly get there, but there is a chance that there will eventually be an evolution toward things like Guaranteed Min. Income, but until then Middle Class/labor will be going through a "terrible transition" period."

 
+John Kellden : 
Great excerpts +Alex Schleber  - a tribal mind, an opaque mind (unwilling to consider novelty) is a very predictable mind and near defenseless against the larger forces at play.

+Alex Schleber  I believe we need to adress the archetypal levels at play as well. Umair Haque is invoking the lone rebels against the resistant masses - I believe we need to look at this dynamic, from as many different perspectives as possible, towards figuring out possible trimtabs.

 
+Alex Schleber : 
+John Kellden BTW, here is something from Venkat that explains things rather succinctly (from 2011 no less!) as far as the (re-)rise of S.V. is concerned:

www.forbes.com/sites/venkateshrao/2011/12/05/the-rise-of-developeronomics/

 
+John Kellden :
+Alex Schleber good addition. He almost always adds value by bringing a new perspective on things.

"The best bank for your excess capital was your friend’s stomach."

Related to:

"In a network, the best place to store knowledge is in other people."

 
+John Kellden :
As for the article - people have grown too skilled in tuning out messages like this. This is not to say that Umair Haque is doing anything wrong. It tells us we need to think things through together, towards figuring out what will move us.

 
+Alex Schleber :
+John Kellden agreed, since there is not immediate actionability, nothing (much) happens, and it elicits another shrug...

 
+John Kellden :
True. No immediate actionability,

given an individual sensemaking context

Ever since the popular (millions of participants) adoption of digital platforms, individual sensemaking has been inadequate, essentially obsolete, this realization dodged by hiding beneath euphemisms such as "filter failure". Once we start cooperate, collaborate, 

ask, share

this will change.

 
+John Kellden :
Reaching many millions of users are not necessary. Already at tens of thousands of participants (an approach and mindset significantly different than users) things will begin to move...

Users:
1. Tribal Mind: Non users (they don't have the tools)
2. Opaque Mind: Primarily a consumption approach. Catgifs, pithy quotes on pretty pictures.
3. Absorbent Mind: Confusion. Search, do not find.  (somewhere here is a gradual switch, from users to beginning participants)

Participants:
4. Transceiving Mind: Content marketing. Will for a couple of years more remain heavily ritualized, through the mostly 20C metaphors being applied to a 21C context.
5. Performing Mind: Digital, enactive coffee-houses. 21C discourse.

Intention and Return on Intention
"Now, I believe the edge of the craft, at this point, lies in finding ways to enable participants to get really sharp about how they present themselves to each other. I’m sorry, but smiles and name tags just don’t cut it.
My strong sense is that intent is the most important thing that “creatives on a mission” need to convey to each other in order to connect meaningfully. This is followed closely by what they are able to offer and what pieces they are missing to make progress on their particular quests.
In my opinion, mastering the “Art of the Ask” is key to pulling off any project that requires more than one person’s contribution. It basically boils down to (1) getting crystal-clear about your intent; (2) imagining what conditions need to be created for its manifestation to happen; (3) knowing how to ask in a way that makes other people care and help create those conditions."

+Daniel Estrada :
Our social networks are broken. Here's how to fix them.

//   1.

You can't really blame us for building Facebook the way we have. By “we” I mean we billion-plus Facebook users, because of course we are the ones who built Facebook. Zuckerberg Inc. might take all the credit (and profit) from Facebook's success, but all the content and contacts on Facebook-- you know, the part of the service we users actually find valuable-- was produced, curated, and distributed by us: by you and me and our vast network of friends. So you can’t blame us for how things turned out.  We really had no idea what we were doing when we built this thing. None of us had ever built a network this big and important before. The digital age is still mostly uncharted territory.

To be fair, we've done a genuinely impressive job given what we had to work with. Facebook is already the digital home to a significant fraction of the global human population. Whatever you think of the service, its size is nothing to scoff at. The population of Facebook users today is about the same as the global human population just 200 years ago. Human communities of this scale are more than just rare: they are historically unprecedented. We have accomplished something truly amazing. Good work, people. We have every right to be proud of ourselves.

But pride shouldn't prevent us from being honest about these things we build--it shouldn’t make us complacent, or turn us blind to the flaws in our creation. Our digital social networks are broken. They don't work the way we had hoped they would; they don't work for us. This problem isn't unique to Facebook, so throwing stones at only the biggest of silicon giants won’t solve it. The problem is with the way we are thinking about the task of social networking itself. To use a very American analogy, our existing social networking tools suffer from the equivalence of a transmission failure: we can get the engine running, but we are struggling to put that power to work.  We see the potential of the internet, but we're at a loss as to how we can direct all this activity into a genuinely positive social change. What little social organization the internet has made possible is fleeting and unreliable, more likely to raise money for potato salad than it is to confront (much less solve) any serious social problem. Arguably, our biggest coordinated online success to date has been the Ice Bucket Challenge; even if we grant the meme has had a positive impact, what change to the social order has come with it? What new infrastructure or social conscience was left in its wake? In terms of social utility, the IBC was like a twitching finger from an otherwise comatose patient: it may give us some hope, but who knows what else. 

Of course, many opportunists have found clever ways to capitalize on the existing network structure, and a few have made a lot of money in the process. The economy is certainly not blind to the latent power of the internet. But as a rule, these digital opportunities are leveraged for purely private gain. The best the public can hope for is that successful digital businesses will turn out cheap services that we can shackle ourselves to like domesticated animals. There have been enough major successes of this model that in the year 2014 we’ve come to accept our fate as unpaid digital domestic labor. There is no longer any hope of using the internet to reorganize the people from post-capitalist consumers into fully empowered digital citizens, because it has become clear that our digital tools have simply been used to standardize the post-capitalist consumer lifestyle on a global scale. 

We need to realize that a half a million human bodies walking down a street with cell phones and hand written signs still have more political power than 10+ million strong Facebook groups or Twitter streams. We still live in an age where an afternoon walk with a few like-minded people can outrun the social influence of a digital collective an order of magnitude larger. You might have expected a digital population to overwhelm our naked ancestors, but if anything the opposite has proven true. When TwitchPlaysPokemon rallied 1.16 million people to beat Pokemon in 16 days, everyone who participated recognized that we accomplished an amazing thing. But we also had to acknowledge, without any cognitive dissonance, that each of us could beat the game ourselves in about a day and a half. 

Okay, okay, so our social networks are broken, and we haven’t even begun to count the ways. There are niche digital communities accomplishing amazing feats of cooperation, but all of us with all our gadgets are not yet as strong as some of us plain old boring people, doing the things we've been doing for centuries like voting and assembling. Why not?

 2. 

Our social networks were originally designed to function like an interactive digital rolodex: a system for managing and engaging a list of social and professional contacts. To someone thinking about life in the digital age around the turn of the century, the idea made a lot of sense: how else would we find our friends in a place as wild and disorganized as the internet without a book of contacts?  Social networks today vary only slightly from this original design.  Some networks emphasize interpersonal relationships and others emphasize content engagement, but the differences in networking tools ultimately have little to do with the liveliness of the communities they serve. Users are willing to put up with a lot of UI nonsense in order to engage with the communities they care about. A passionate community might thrive on a poorly designed network, and a high-end design might fail to attract any community at all. From the user’s point of view, these communities are attractive for two reasons: its members and their interests. Who is on this network, and what are they talking about? 

So if we’re being honest with ourselves then this is the unflinching truth: the growth of social networking happened despite the tools we’ve built, not because of them. We are social creatures; we want to share ourselves with each other. In the age of industry and capital, satisfying this need to share had become almost impossible. When our digital tools offered the promise of overcoming our alienation and reconnecting with each other we jumped at the opportunity. We became refugees fleeing failed states on wifi. As digital immigrants we have suffered through the privacy violations, UI disasters, and the untold hells of political irrelevance that are common to all immigrant stories. And we’ve done it for nothing more than for than the promise to connect with each other, if only to share a picture of our pets.The idea that any one company or service would take credit for the epic digital migration we’ve collectively accomplished over the last decade is ludicrous; we’re the species who figured out how to communicate through tin cans and string. The growth of social networking is what happens when you give the internet to enough huddled masses yearning to breathe free.

But it turns out that we don’t use our social networks like an interactive rolodex. In fact, the relationships we used to have with the people in our rolodex tend to be one-dimensional and alienating in exactly the way we we came to these digital spaces to avoid. Instead of a list-management tool, people’s online behavior appears to require something more like a living room, or (depending on where and how you live) your porch or kitchen table or stoop: a space to visit with each other; where we can showcase our triumphs, complain about our problems, share our hopes, gossip about our friends, and discuss the happenings of the day; where the atmosphere is jovial and hospitable and supportive. In short, we are trying to build a home, in the midst of a community of homes, together with the people we want in our lives. In some homes you can talk about politics or religion, in others you can’t; in some you’ll be subject to hundreds of photos of vacations and babies and pets, and in others you’ll find the accumulated markings and detritus of a real life lived. A relationship planner with multimedia messaging is nice, but what we really want are digital living spaces where we can be together as a community.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that we’d approach the task of community-building in this way: by carving out spaces for ourselves and our friends around focal objects. This is how we humans have always developed our communities: not by managing lists of people through which to channel our communication, but by organizing spaces that can accommodate all of our activity. Communication is but a tool in service of that cooperation. I’m not just talking about a “digital commons”, in the sense of a public space for cooperating beyond the purview of one’s home. We don’t even have our own spaces managed right; we are still shackled to these monolithic centralized services that own and manage our relationships according to their grand designs. In such an atmosphere we have trouble motivating even our friends and family to action, much less something as quixotic and ethereal as “the public”. Expecting these digital communities to engage seriously in politics is like expecting toddlers to engage seriously in politics. 

So let’s be concrete. Now that we’ve all gathered around the digital hearth and can hear each other speak, let’s think again about what is missing from this generation of social networking tools, and what we need to see in the next.  

3.

Today’s social networks are centralized. Our homes are decentralized.

The kind of activity and commotion that’s common in one person’s home might be intolerable in another’s. That’s fine; we’re different people entertaining different communities, and we build our homes to accommodate our specific community needs. Any social network must be as sensitive to these variations as we are. A network under central management is forced to ignore the differences between us and homogenize our interactions to maintain order at large scales. This leveling of variation is a necessary feature of any centrally-managed network, and it can have a number of unfortunate consequences for the communities we can form on them. Some standardization is good, even healthy. But the details matter, and the wrong standards can destroy a community. The larger the network, the more likely any central management will simply be insensitive to community-level needs.

Putting our data in the hands of a central network authority also makes it all the more likely that the information will be released without our consent, either deliberately or accidentally, and this alone can be a deciding factor in whether and to what extent a person will participate in a network. But the problem with centralized network management is even more fundamental than privacy. When we share something with a friend on a centralized network, we’re also implicating the central management in that exchange. It is because central management plays a role in every network exchange that they are in a position to violate our privacy in the first place. This ubiquitous presence can become a dominant influence on our interaction, making our relationship develop according to the needs and interests of the network managers, which may diverge arbitrarily from our own. The effect is a little like trying to manage your home with a state official looking over your shoulder and archiving all your activities, filtering not just for legality but also for targeted advertising. As digital immigrants we’ve come to accept that we’re being overseen, but we should also realize that these are not the conditions under which do our best work. When unknown third parties with unknown interests are not only present in our interactions, but can radically disrupt the structure of those relationships without notice, then we’re not very likely to devote serious time and effort to cultivating digital spaces to meet our cooperative needs. As a result, our networks remain flimsy, makeshift, liable to blow away at any second--these are no conditions in which to build a home that we can do anything meaningful in. 

Building a community of homes means building spaces that can self-organize in response to the needs of our various overlapping communities without oversight and central control. There is no center to our vast network of friends; there is no vantage point from which to micromanage our relationships but our own. The point is not that our networks cannot be managed; the point is that we need to be the management. We need a network where our data remains ours, and where the terms and conditions of our social lives are set exclusively by us. 

With today’s networks, my identity is an option in a pull-down menu. In our homes, we develop who we are through what we do and who we do it with. 

A rolodex is a centralized leveling tool: a person’s critical details are made to fit on a small standardized card in a roll of functionally identical cards. It is left to the user to construct the network from these details: to evaluate the strength of the relationship, the relative importance they might have for our projects, and they way they fit into the larger fabric of our social lives. Today’s social network continues the tradition of encouraging people to fit cookie-cutter identities to maximize advertising revenue. No consideration is paid to how these constraints on identity formation might impact our ability to form and sustain a vibrant community. This helps to explain why people mostly use online social networking to manage relationships they began offline, where they have more direct control over their identity and reputation. Exclusively online-only relationships typically take much longer to develop familiarity and trust, simply because we are witness to substantively less activity from the other. Talking to grandma online is easy enough because who we are and what we mean has already been established elsewhere. The same familiarity isn’t available generally: a random internet person could be anyone and want anything. This cannot be the basis for social cooperation. 

Functional social networks develop through the construction of differentiated reputations. We each have different strengths and weaknesses, and by working together we learn how we each fit into all our overlapping projects. By forcing us into pre-fab identities, we lose the ability to track how we might best cooperate, or how our identities evolve as a result of what we’ve done together. Instead, we’re left to cobble together a pale imitation of reputation from what little data we have access to, in terms of likes, shares, and followers (or their equivalents), as if the quality and utility of our work depended only on the number of people who saw it. There’s nothing wrong with followers and likes per se, but when these are our only resources for organizing we end up with bizarre distortions of a healthy community. In such an environment we tend overvalue the activity of celebrities and become suspicious of everyone else, simply because we have no other common resources for making finer distinctions. None of these tools reveal how our networks might be put towards our various social ends, because ultimately it is not our ends these networks serve. 

Building a community of homes requires building identities with reputations we control through the work we do and the communities we engage with. When we control our identities, and when the feedback we receive reflects the value of the work that we do, then we will we finally feel the responsibility and commitment that only a functional community can generate. We need a social network that can provide the tools for managing our reputations across the many diverse communities we engage with, that understands how these reputations change with context, and how our collective strengths can be stitched together to compose a much greater whole. 

Today, a successful social networking campaign achieves virality. A successful home achieve results.

We have no other tools for judging the success of our activity online except in terms of raw audience size. In this degenerate capacity we can conceive of no other strategic goals but virality: spreading a message quickly and widely. The goal of virality admits up front we are powerless to effect change ourselves. Instead, the best we can hope is that prolific exposure through synchronized spamming will bring the message to the feet of the people with the resources to do something about it. As digital immigrants our own voices do not carry far enough, and we are in no position to do anything about the cries of our neighbors. So instead, we’ve relegated ourselves to being the messenger in our own social networks, delivering notes between the already-powerful and pretending to live in the same communities as them. 

In a functioning community, the strength of the signal tends to correlate with the urgency of the message. The messages that spread the fastest are usually the biggest emergencies requiring the most immediate attention. The messages that spread the widest tend to be the information people need for coordinating their activities across great distances. But most of our cooperation is local and not terribly urgent, and therefore doesn’t depend on raw signal strength. Viral appeals to our collective attention cannot be the only tool in our kit for getting our messages across. 

Although our attention is among the most precious of our limited resources, we nevertheless produce it continuously and nearly without effort. We eagerly give it away to the things we find interesting and worthwhile without expecting anything in return. It is by paying attention that we imbue our world with structure and meaning; this is ultimately what we are all here to do. Our collective attention is distributed across an enormous variety of projects and communities, and that distribution reflects our self-organized division of labor and value: what we consider worthwhile enough to spend our time doing. We use that distribution to decide where we will spend our attention next, and through this collective management of attention we are capable of organizing all of our productive social systems. So when we engage each other on existing social networks, when we each like and share according to our own interests and tastes, we expect that the resulting community will reflect some consensus of our participation-- that the network will be “better”, according to the standards of “better” as indicated by our contributions. 

Existing social networks don’t function that way at all: our engagement is harvested for advertisers, and whatever feedback it generates is lost in the noise of the greater economy. There’s no reason whatsoever to hope that our networks will develop in response to our activity and values, because we know that they are responding to other values and using our activity for other purposes. They’ve hijacked the spaces we’ve selected for our homes and they are exploiting us for all we’re willing to give. Meanwhile, all the attention we pay goes to waste, utterly failing to secure the expected return on investment, having been traded away for dollar of ad space. We still dismiss hashtag campaigns as slacktivism, as if our impotence were a character flaw. The truth is we’re doing the best with the tools we’re given, and ultimately these social networks were never built to work that way in the first place. 

Building a community of homes, one that really works for all of us, requires a whole new approach to the economy of attention, one that understands how the organization of the system emerges from the activity of its many distinct parts. We need new tools for networking, not just to make connections but to hook the right communities up in the right way so that we can all accomplish what none of us could alone. 

The digital homes described above do not yet exist; we have yet to build them. As digital immigrants we’ve been tossed between halfway homes for years, so the significance of this challenge might not have fully registered. Partial solutions exist, but only piecemeal and scattershot across the available networks; no solution has met these problems with the elegance and comprehension necessary to bring social networking into a new era. 

But that’s about to change. People are obviously thinking about the next generation of social networking, and for the last few weeks I’ve been working with a team of developers on a distributed networking service built on the block chain, one that bakes security, reputation, and community management directly into the basic feature set. We’re set to announce within the next few days, when I hope to tell you much more about the details of the project. Until then I hope the comments here give some insight into our philosophical approach to the design.

Good Afternoon Dear Googleverse Netizens

"The pain we feel (and the horror, at what we find) are part of the healing process. We cannot progress if we do not feel what we are feeling. We cannot move forward without taking that “long, hard look” at the skeletons in our closet, the demons in our psyche."
-- +David Amerland 

Each post, each comment in the Googleverse, is part of the imaginal alchemy, scaffolding our caterpillaring, our chrysalising and our butterflying.

Once we've consumed exactly 1.2 gazillion catgifs, we will turn into better versions of ourselves.

Balance in All Things

In Chinese philosophy the concept of Yin and Yang (http://goo.gl/ib7Y) explains not only how opposites define each other, lending identity to their antithesis but also how the existence of one becomes the very seed that brings the other into being. 

I grew up at a time when “the battle of the sexes” was the subject of both TV sitcoms like Eight is Enough (http://goo.gl/KvEHg) and practically every male bastion that labored under the institutionalized sexism (http://goo.gl/7ItVMv) that was the norm of the time. 

These are more enlightened times. Or so we would like to think. The 70s are almost half a century behind us and yet the ‘enlightenment’ gained, in that time, with so much energy and effort is a fragile one. Part of the attitude goes underground to surface perhaps in the intensity of the abortion debate in the US (http://goo.gl/EHzrw4) which itself is an expression of a dynamic between a woman’s ability to choose independently what she wants to do with her body and society’s historical view of her as a commodity. 

Funnily enough the very reason such issues are so persistent is not because women are of no value. Quite the opposite in fact. There is a tacit and complete agreement in their intrinsic value which then leads to the intellectual tangents we observe that overlay the question of who, exactly, controls that value. 

As in all things that are systemic, value = power. Power is always worth wrangling over because it ensures status, security and (arguably) greater choice of women (for men) – greater access to value. At times we seem to be no better than lab rats exhausting ourselves on a primordial biology treadmill. 

Take the conflagration that became GamerGate. A single, impassioned (and perhaps ill-advised) blogpost of a man who felt jilted enough to pour his angst on the web in what is known simply as TheZoePost (http://goo.gl/BIrw8I). Target of that angst is Zoe Quinn (http://goo.gl/VQsNu7) who found herself the lightning rod for everything that’s wrong with anonymity on the web (http://goo.gl/N6uuOP) as an all-out assault was led upon her by the 4Chan crowd and a host of forum-posters who, in their collectivity succeeded in signaling that misogyny and the wrangle for power is far from over and that ‘enlightenment’ is purely subjective. 

Depressing as the thought might be, that we appear only to progress at times, it is heartened by the fact that our times are more transparent, at least and the individual is far from powerless against the mob. Zoe came out swinging (http://goo.gl/NJqqqt) with posts of her own. The Press weighed in with the “Gamers are misogynist” issue: http://goo.gl/44V5TS. Predictably hate mobs and their dynamic came into focus:  http://goo.gl/r7QWCd. The role of the Press became key: http://goo.gl/kdkH5V and the man who sparked it all off, unrepentant (if still, somewhat unfocused) was the subject of at least one interview: http://goo.gl/RqfRnn.

Before you write all this off to the madness of the digital age, anonymity and the stupidity of not thinking about responsibility when you have the power to publish to the world from your desktop, consider that if we remove the modern setting this sits comfortably with “the mob in the village square” (http://goo.gl/xcwNFj) which, ironically led to the development of the world’s most popular sport. 

At a slightly more elevated level is the debate of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) which on G+ +Buddhini Samarasinghe  has worked for (http://goo.gl/OC06sL) and +Marisa Goudy  has supported (http://goo.gl/0A8DyQ). 

Many of the ‘arguments’ we face in the digital age, once analyzed, come down to the same root cause. There is a primal, ancient, part of us that reacts along predictable ways that are at odds with what we are trying to achieve as people and as a species. 

It feels, at times that we are sliding back into darkness, that we are losing things we value but we are not. We’re having conversations that are passionate, deep and global. We are using our ability to understand things better because we see more of what’s going on as a forensic scalpel that by degrees is stripping back layers of our society (and often times of ourselves) exposing the raw nerves running beneath. 

The pain we feel (and the horror, at what we find) are part of the healing process. We cannot progress if we do not feel what we are feeling. We cannot move forward without taking that “long, hard look” at the skeletons in our closet, the demons in our psyche. 

Which kinda leads us full circle, back to Yin and Yang as the Oxford Leadership Journal examines the impact of the Feminine Principle (http://goo.gl/W7LMnB) and studies are beginning to show that companies with more women on the Board do better: http://goo.gl/m19vk2. And this at a time when the data also shows that female CEOs make less than their female counterparts: http://goo.gl/iv5Ny7.

Today for every post that unearths yet one more part of the world that somehow refuses to move on: http://goo.gl/wuWe1E we have another that shows a problem aired can begin its journey towards a solution: http://goo.gl/xSKUVI. 

Neural science tells us that men and women are wired differently: http://goo.gl/O18TMb. The study’s researchers make a point that while if any inference can be drawn from this is just how complementary male and female brains are: http://goo.gl/Qk2mgj. When the Dutch philosopher, Desiderius Erasmus (http://goo.gl/1vRaC) compiled Adagia his collection of Greek and Latin proverbs he included the oft quoted “Women, you can’t live with them, can’t live without them) - http://goo.gl/vGop8D. Beyond its folklorist populism, the saying takes back to the dynamic of Yin and Yang: http://goo.gl/yDpB6C. One without the other cannot exist.

Balance and harmony comes not with ‘victory’, the overcoming of one by the other (as we saw with the Capitalism/Communism argument:http://goo.gl/r2SFtm), but by a harmonic tension that maintains their individual natures in a way that each completes the other. As the debate about equality, the rights of women and men’s ability to deal with their presence becomes global, gets even more complicated with questions of faith and culture, it serves us best, perhaps to remember that. 

Regardless of your sex I hope you’ve done the needed thing and stocked up on some good quality coffee, some croissants, donuts, cookies (and maybe, cake?). It’s Sunday, still, so have a great one wherever you are. 

PS. There is a Sunday Read circle for those of you who want to be notified. If you let me know I will be only too happy to include you.

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

Scaling to the Power of We
Once we connect, the rest will follow. For that to happen, there's a dynamic balance, a necessary, living chaos we need to accept and embrace, out of our individual sensemaking, our individual discernment, gaming the system for our own gain - and our altruistic impulse, operationalized through extending trust.

Now, add yourself to this knowledge journey. Start with adding considered, considerate comments on someone else's post. From there, let's find out where we'd love to go...

In the Conversation Community, which started in Nov 2012 - we've been exploring social learning, social cognition, social presence in earnest since the summer of 2013. It has been a slow, deliberate, intentional, trust-building, self-organizing set of complex responsive processes.

The plan remains very simple:
A design that combines selfhood, service, synthesis and social learning in ways that scales.

The guiding principle for all participation is simple as well:
#winwinwin  

The core process is conversation:
And recursion through evolution of conversation.

Below is the comment thread from the original post:


+Farinaz Parsay :
+John Kellden, what you have mentioned is so uplifting and encouraging in terms of vision, productions and co-creation. There are other areas that come to mind which are in the background and may not be tangible but they deserve to be mentioned as a context. What I have experienced as a new comer here is a concerned leadership, a culture of kinship and kindness, the spirit of collaboration and engagement, the respect and compassion for human dignity and a stream of knowledge to learn from. I don't know if I have been able to express what I intend to say but I think the members of this community are the best people to explore and share that.


+Henk Hadders :
A Miracle Question

"Our life is 'us happening'. Change your state of being and your life must change too"
-- Jan Bommerez

Great heartfelt post, +John Kellden , about the conversation-power of we. 
"Imagine............." 
It reminded me of the miracle question, we could ask the members of this community: 

"May I ask you a somewhat strange question? Suppose you're going to bed tonight and while you sleep a miracle happens. Through that miracle all problems we are talking about here, are solved, so you can move ahead fine. You wake up, but you don't know a miracle has happened. What would be different? What would you do different? How would you know that a miracle has happened? "


+John Kellden :
Couldn't be more happy with and grateful for your comment +Farinaz Parsay - thanks much.


+Susan Cox :
+John Kellden I remember the first time I heard/saw you say social presence in a post...I had no idea what that meant (this was in Feb/March 2013 I believe). And over this year with your patience posting posting posting kindly encouraging mindfully commenting it has become part if my everyday language and I think about and speak about what is meaningful for me...as a being, a HUMAN being and someone making her way in the business world....SOCIAL PRESENCE and our work here is at the top of my list. Thank you for continuing to peel the layers...each time there is more illumination and understanding.

 
+Hoda Maalouf :
I'm a member of 5 other communities, where most of what we do there is talk. They are great people but mostly work individually & plenty of competition among their influencers. What I truely appreciate here is the real essence of a community. The "we" is predominant. This Social Presence fieldbook is a materialization of our "we". So "Yalla" let's do it!!

 
+John Kellden :
+Susan Cox you were right all along, when you kept asking for simplicity. We're getting there!  

Key Operative Word: We
My fault, weakness, idiosyncrasy, quirk, is that I'd really love to have as many people on board the bus [Feynman Airstream, There And Back Again] as humanly possible. And simplicity, genuine, heartfelt simplicity beyond complexity, need to be arrived at, only after having let go of those opaque, not-yet-translucent parts of our own minds, that are holding back our own voice, our unique contribution to the voluntary choir. This holds for me as well as for everyone else.

We all would love for our networking, our business, our societies, our civilization, to become better. The paradox is, we all as individuals mightily resist, the different paths we need to go, for that to happen.

There's a double pressure as well, since most of the old, proven paths are almost useless, meaningless. This is not yet seen as one of the core sources of opportunity. 

We'd all love to wake up, any which morning now, soon, to a new, different reality. We all fear the night that precedes it. Our unique voices will make all the difference in the world.

 
+John Kellden :
Most of the men in the Conversation Community, are deeply passionate about their own take on, perspectives on, Our Present and Future Societies, and most of these posts and perspectives can be found, read and engaged with in conversation, in the Narrative topic.
[21C Stewardship]

The Narrative topic is the Conversation Community Collective Intelligence, at the level of millions and billions of people.

A number of women are outlining with deep passion and commitment, what can help inspire us enough to move us as individuals, from One, to Three, to Ten to Thirty people and beyond. You can find their posts in the Visual Narrative topic.

[Visual Storytelling]

All the Visual Narrative posts and comments, is the Conversation Community Collective Intelligence - holding space for the unfolding of circle wisdom, of scenius, of phronesis, of social cognition - a dynamic centering and anchoring of our gathering together.

There is no dedicated topic bridging inbetween, for two reasons:

-  the middle part of the scaling, the connective tissue between one individual and one million individuals, is emergent. It is all those moments when conversations turns dialogue and when dialogue turns  #metalogue it is also the slow humanizing of the algorithms, from one billion aggregated accounts of data, all the way back to individual biosemiotics and enaction

-  each one of us as individuals, are living bridges: between old and new, between yang and yin, between institution and network, between past and future

 
+John Kellden :
+Hoda Maalouf a very important addition!  From where I sit, there's nothing wrong with competition, I'm fiercely competitive myself when it comes to certain key aspects of what I'm working on as an individual.

One of the current euphemisms in digital platforms related to competition, is to declare what we are passionate about. Another competition euphemism is to say "I'm very excited about..."
A third is "let me tell you about a great new thing we're working on which will provide even better functionality, value for [insert your brand, name, app, thingy here].

I realized fairly early on, that there was close to zero traction from most others regarding me talking about #collaborativesensemaking  since the value of this approach resides precisely in moving beyond competition.

I knew I had to wait, eg until people would begin to grow weary of the individual content marketing competition.

This whole platform Google+, is deeply, thoroughly predicated on Collective Sensemaking delivered through algorithms, one of the visible parts being automatic #hashtag  suggestions on our individual posts - and individual sensemaking, each one of us trying best we know how, using whatever rules of thumb and heuristics at our disposal, to game the system, the network, the platform.

One of the core reasons for my prolifics, is that I realized I needed to showcase there are  different ways of getting to eg millions in View Count. I am very grateful for Google making visible this essential piece of data.

I also realized a while ago, that #reach  alone, while necessary, wasn't sufficient. I needed to figure out #reciprocity  and #resonance  as well, the patterns that meaningfully (re)connects, amidst all seeming digital, social, content fragmentation and distraction. In short, I needed to design, launch and grow, a digital community. Both reciprocity and resonance needs to be the genuine article. It needs to be scaffolded by conversation, by dialogue, by metalogue. 

In short:

"In a network, competition is a finite game, informed by and guided by collaboration."

Cooperation (including game theory, social cognition computing, narrative and sensemaking) are patterns of experiential learning and unlearning, out of which a reweaving (rediscover, rekindle, revitalize) between competition and collaboration.

"The conversation IS the work."
-- David Whyte


+Susan Cox :
+John Kellden this is one of THE MOST BRILLIANT of the posts/metalogues so far....it is a shining example, in my mind, of just the HOW and WHAT we have been talking about in CONVERSATION....circling around, peeling a layer, chipping away an idea and then refining it.
I am pretty much breathless...
"One of the current euphemisms in digital platforms related to competition, is to declare what we are passionate about. Another competition euphemism is to say "I'm very excited about..."
A third is "let me tell you about a great new thing we're working on which will provide even better functionality, value for [insert your brand, name, app, thingy here]."

I am not sure if WE all understand the significance of what this means to the money/corporate/global war-of-work & thingys that come out of it.
 I struggle to get my arms around this in the simplest terms- so here's a thought---- SEEN through Susan-Malinda's-eyes 

In the animal kingdom WE are the grand adventurers(maybe that is why-when they outnumbered us they did not rise up and wipe us out-oh yes and there were the ever developing weapons we created to protect ourselves- and now turn on each other in ever increasing ways) But it is more than weapons...I look in animal's eyes(dogs cats horses sheep.. and I see that resonance and recognition of our place in all this....they KNOW we SEE past and future in our great adventure story of the universe

It is through that spark of exploration and co-creation we created (or discovered) science and out of this was born technology and as we created, those that were driven by control including aggregate power over others and the planet,  framed this playground where the desire for adventure was pretty much unchecked  into a WAR of information and widgets. The WAR, like a deadly virus, is kind of imploding onto it's host and if left unchecked might destroy the playground where we came to play and discover and most of all CONNECT with kindred spirits.

So if we can make a different choice...stop warring and began connecting is a mindful way perhaps we can continue to play.

<<<<<she smiles ruefully -grateful to get this out as a storyteller-------knowing that this could become a 4,000 word submission to +John Kellden in the Social Presence Fieldbook but won't be>>>>>

 
+Susan Cox :
+John Kellden  and all...I will do a post of this

Visual Storytelling: Moby Dick

#onthisday   in 1851, Herman Melville’s novel “Moby-Dick; or, The Whale“ was first published in London.

“Now small fowls flew screaming over the yet yawning gulf; a sullen white surf beat against its steep sides; then all collapsed; and the great shroud of the sea rolled on as it rolled five thousand years ago." So ends one of the strangest and most wonderful books in the world, closing up its mystery and its tortured symbolism. It is an epic of the sea such as no man has equalled; and it is a book of esoteric symbolism of profound significance, and of considerable tiresomeness. But it is a great book, a very great book, the greatest book of the sea ever written. It moves awe in the soul.“ (D.H. Lawrence)

Just a few weeks before the publication of the cetacean novel that hardly anyone felt compelled to read for the next 70 years, a huge sperm whale had attacked and sunk the good ship “Ann Alexander” out of New Bedford some 2,000 miles east of the coast of Peru. Melville was in London when he heard the news and he remarked: “Ye Gods! What a commentator is this Ann Alexander whale. What he has to say is short & pithy & very much to the point. I wonder if my evil art has raised this monster." It was one of the rare but not unheard of incidents when a bull sperm whale had attacked a ship three times his own size and while the monster was slain in January 1852 by the crew of another New Bedford whaler, the “Rebecca Sims”, off the Galapagos Islands, another whale of a tale was still told along the Eastern Seaboard, the story of the “Essex”, sunk by a sperm whale out in the open Pacific Ocean in 1820 along with the spine-crawling ordeal of her crew’s survival. It became one of the major inspirations for Melville, along with the account of “Mocha Dick”, a white bull sperm whale with his head covered in barnacles, his peculiar method of spouting and his ability to come out of the water completely when he breached in anger, recorded in the “Knickerbocker” magazine in 1839. And there was Melville’s own experience, gathered aboard the whaler “Acushnet” of Fairhaven, Mass., and the Australian whaleship “Lucy Ann”, a time 23 years old Melville found so unbearable that he felt compelled to jump ship twice. But even though “Moby Dick” comes in the guise of a fable about the harsh days of whaling, the gory business is but a background, almost a sideshow of America’s greatest novel.

Melville’s audience expected something along the lines of “Typee” or “Omoo”, both best-selling novels inspired by the author’s adventures in the South Pacific and “Moby Dick” came as 200,000 word leviathan full of allusions and elaborations on Homer, Shakespeare, Milton, Byron, the Scriptures, marine mammals, quotes from completely obscure sources and, of course, the sea. Unfortunately, the majority of the American readers’ tastes had turned westward to the Great Plains and California after gold had been found at Sutter’s Mill in 1848, causing a period of migration in the Northern Hemisphere. Yarn of Nantucket sleigh rides, whales and sailors were no longer that interesting, but the attempt to capture the totality of human existence and cram it aboard a whaler, anticipating the great Russian novels of the late 19th century and the classical modernists, Joyce, Dos Passos and Döblin, was simply too much to stomach. It took the turmoil of the 20th century to ripe readers for “Moby Dick” and its baroque tour-de-force through the summary of literary experience of almost 3,000 years. In 1902, almost like a symbol for the change of the audience and the appreciation of the novel, a white sperm whale was killed off the Azores, a 90’ long scarred old bull, veteran of uncounted fights, allegedly a hundred years old. The modern whalemen brought him down with a modern harpoon tipped with an explosive device.

Depicted below is Everett Henry’s (1893 – 1961) wonderful map of the Voyage of the Pequod (1956)

21C Literacies: Technology & People

"It's all about how technology connects people."
-- +John Hagel 

It could be, although we don't know yet with any certainty, perhaps we never will, that all the 21C literacies are fluid, dynamic, co-evolving, yet sourced in a surprisingly simple paradox: technology as both the source of increasing pressure, and at the same time providing expanding opportunity.

If this is so, the connectivity, resilient enough to hold in the face of all pressures, yet also resonant enough so as to not add to the already existing confusion with the seeming bewildering plethora of opportunities, might well be one of the keys, as we learn to navigate our future, somewhere between known and unknown.

Life in the Village, part 77: Mozart & Brain surgery

Violinist Plays Mozart Through Her Own Brain Surgery
Violinist Naomi Elishuv gave her surgeons their own private Mozart concert — as they operated on her brain.

Elishuv performed professionally with the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra before being diagnosed with essential tremor two decades ago, according to the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center. The neurological condition can affect muscles throughout the body, but for Elishuv, it meant a trembling of the hands and the end of her orchestral career.

Surgeons inserted a pacemaker into the affected area of Elishuv’s brain to regulate her tremors through electric impulses. According to the hospital’s director of functional neurosurgery, Yitzhak Fried, she was asked to play during the procedure because he and other doctors needed Elishuv’s “active participation in real-time” to implant the pacemaker.

Now, thanks to the life-changing operation, she’s regained her rhythm. The difference between her playing before and after the surgery is clearly apparent.

21C Intangibles: Distribution

"...automation's impact on concentrating financial returns into the hands of shareholders."
-- +Gideon Rosenblatt 

+Leif Edvinsson  +Michel Bauwens  +Doug Breitbart +David Amerland  +Jeff Jockisch 

This article on technology and the distribution of wealth is one of my best. I originally shared it a little over a year ago and share it again now for those who may have missed it then. 

Lots of the focus on robotic and software-based automation is on job loss. But there is another very important factor at work here: automation's impact on concentrating financial returns into the hands of shareholders. 

Together, these two forces act as the two sides of a vice, with very important consequences for the distribution of wealth.

Small Farmers & Agro-ecology

UN: Only Small Farmers and Agroecology can Feed the World

Governments must shift subsidies and research funding from agro-industrial monoculture to small farmers using 'agroecological' methods, according to the UN's Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food.

Modern industrial agricultural methods can no longer feed the world, due to the impacts of overlapping environmental and ecological crises linked to land, water and resource availability.

… "Agroecology is a traditional way of using farming methods that are less resource oriented, and which work in harmony with society. New research in agroecology allows us to explore more effectively how we can use traditional knowledge to protect people and their environment at the same time."

… "That entails recognising women's role in food production - from farmer, to housewife, to working mother, women are the world's major food providers. It also means recognising small farmers, who are also the most vulnerable, and the most hungry."

… "This is critical for future agricultural policies. Currently, most subsidies go to large agribusiness. This must change. Governments must support small farmers. As rural people are migrating increasingly to cities, this is generating huge problems."

… "Agroecology is more than just a science, it's also a social movement for justice that recognises and respects the right of communities of farmers to decide what they grow and how they grow it."

Gaia: Return of the Mountain Salmon

yummy photography ....

And it's probably worth an editorial moment, reminding folks that just about every natural process you can name is part of the cycle of erosion that removes energy and materials from the land and dumps them into the sea ... except for the salmon, who are the only part of the system that goes out to sea and collects some of it and return it to the headwaters of the streams.

When the mile-thick ice that covered this place finally retreated, it was scraped bare, covered with gravel, there was nothing growing - no forests, no meadows - there was nothing but crushed rock and ponds filled with clay to grow in.

But year after year, the salmon have returned to the rivers and slowly added their carcasses, fertilizing the headwaters, supporting dozens of species and allowing the plants to return.  They did it 10,000 years ago and they have done it every year since then. They are among the few critical and indispensable links in the incredibly fragile and complex system of life that we blunder around in.

I Hear America Singing

Life in the Village, part 25: I Hear America Singing

I HEAR America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe
         and strong,
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off
         work,
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deck-
         hand singing on the steamboat deck,
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing
         as he stands,
The wood-cutter's song, the ploughboy's on his way in the morn-
         ing, or at noon intermission or at sundown,
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work,
         or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young
         fellows, robust, friendly,
Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.
-- Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Good Evening Dear Googleverse Demigods

Finding my Story, Part 2
So when I left off, I had just created demigods. Let me explain that a bit better.

- Naming them was fun, and honestly it stretched past the next step because I couldn't settle on a few of them. Oh, and the oracle's demigod is Irelais. ;)

I created them with one goal: to establish intrigue from the highest levels because their attention will shape the world and the conflict.

To achieve that goal, I had to be willing to bend my process to whatever they needed. So I started by making a list of possible character themes and opposites.

During the country-creation, I had several ideas for individuals, like a fallen demigod and a newly ascended replacement. I knew that those two had major roles to play.

The first step in creating the individuals was figuring out how each one would influence others based on what I knew of their roles. In writerly-speak, I looked at each one in relation to the theme of influence.

Oh, and at this point I only had four or five demigods.

Once I knew the different hows, I was able to examine them and find the values that each holds. Then and only then did I compare them to my list of opposites. And I started creating a larger group based on the gaps I found.

Notice that most of them don't have goals at his point.
I wanted agendas that would create shifting alliances.

So to "knowledge" I gave the wish for prophesy to be allowed to run its course, and a willingness to interfere in others' plans. Her name is Miija, and she's one of a few whose agendas can easily align and separate with others' depending on the situation.

That set the stage. The next step was figuring out the story concept. Or basically, the story. I'll get into that in part 3.

You can see the full series here: https://ello.co/writingeekery

...I'd like to add that an agenda isn't the same thing as a goal. It's a mix of a worldview, values, and a very vague goal. A specific goal, an active goal, is the way they are trying to impose that will on the world.

How do you create your cast?___Good Evening Dear Googleverse Demigods

21C Platforms: Google+ Communities

"Communities is the best feature of Google+ after Hangouts. They focus interests and allow you to find people who have the same areas of interest as you do."
-- +Randy Resnick 

Tons of great advice shared by Randy in his posts.

One of the things I'd love to do next year, is to figure out a map of Google+ Communities that would help people figure out how to quickly improve their own return on engagement.

Another thing I'd like to do, is to put together something really simple, a continuously curated and updated list perhaps, for Google+ community managers with ideas and suggestions for improving return on involvement and inclusivity.

For a deeper context, including some select glimpses of what is possible around the corner, I'd suggest reading up on +David Amerland 's Sunday Read.

Comes to Google+ Once a Year. "Sees nothing". Posts to say so
"I'm sure something has happened here in the meantime, but I'm not sure what it would be."
I have said it often enough, Communities is the best feature of Google+ after Hangouts. They focus interests and allow you to find people who have the same areas of interest as you do. There are often many different communities around a single topic, and you can even choose the "flavor", the personality of the one you like best. Through those communities, without joining, you also find people to circle, or just circle everyone in a community at once. There are Chrome extensions that make this easy, but you can do it by hand little by little, too. I've tried that, but you then need to quickly cull your circles as many people will not be to your taste for other reasons.
Since ello has been talked about a lot recently, this is a perfect time to mention it again. The person who made the initial statement would be saying exactly what ello beta people are saying. There's no good discovery method, only a suggested list of beta users, which has been of no use to me. I visit ello at least once a day and post at least once, too.

To say that nothing is happening here (aka GhostTown™) is extremely myopic, though. If you just want to read, you could find, say, 7  posters who would fill the screen daily with interesting things, such as +NASA, +I fucking love science , +Jennifer Ouellette,+John Kellden, +David Amerland, +Paul Stickland, +Cliff Roth .
After the first three, which would form a science newspaper, there are philosophical and artistic individuals who represent tens of thousands of others like them.

The person who made this ghost town comment is apparently involved in "spreading the word of the Lord". Out of curiosity, I did a search I have never done: "God" in Google+ communities. There are thousands of communities, many of them large, that have God in their name or description. Even removing the very small ones with few posts, and any irreverent possible satire ones, there are hundreds of communities devoted to religion, mostly Christian, on Google+. There is very likely a missionary community waiting for this gentleman in the collection.

Online, no one really knows you are Elephant Man, or a dog. Even if you think you are horribly maladroit socially, or have problems speaking, or hate the sound of your own voice, you can still pick from hundreds of thousand of ordinary people. Some of these may have extraordinary characteristics, talents, qualities you are passing by every day.

The link between nature and wellbeing is multiple. At one level, it provides everything we need to live and so guarantees our survival. That’s a very basic condition. At the other level, it makes our lives worth living and delivers multiple benefits.
