Bringing Laughter and Play to Refugee Children with Ash Perrin of The Flying Seagulls Project

9/14/2017
More
There are 65 million refugees around the world, over half of which are children according to UNHCR. Many of these children will spend their entire childhood away from home. Some might be without their families, and many have experienced violence and insecurity (and continue to do so). In exile, they are “at risk of abuse, neglect, … Continue reading Bringing Laughter and Play to Refugee Children with Ash Perrin of The Flying Seagulls Project The post Bringing Laughter and Play to Refugee...

Recipes for Efficacy

8/31/2017
More
This episode is a compilation of clips from previous episodes–all centred on the concept of efficacy, which is like a red thread running through my Minatour’s labyrinth of conversations with thinkers makers and doers here on The Working Together Podcast. We will explore the concept of efficacy in personal, political and technical modes (in that order). I … Continue reading Recipes for Efficacy The post Recipes for Efficacy appeared first on Working Together.

Communities of Interest and Communities of Practice with Gui Seiz of Making Sense

8/17/2017
More
Our techno-scientific world is a historical novelty, and it’s complex. We humans did not evolve for this new world. We have not experienced the magnitude of it’s consequences (unintended or otherwise) and their harms. I’m talking about things like environmental toxins, industrial pollutants, gamma radiation, and so on. I’m also talking about things we can … Continue reading Communities of Interest and Communities of Practice with Gui Seiz of Making Sense The post Communities of Interest...

Technology is Breaking the World. Here’s How You Can Join In. w/ Kevin Kelly

8/2/2017

It’s 30 years in the future. Imagine that you are walking into work… no wait… imagine that your home is also your where you work. (familiar enough, what’s so crazy about that?) Because Artificial Intelligences (AIs) have so thoroughly taken over “the boring stuff” your “working” role is to help facilitate productive relationships between human … Continue reading Technology is Breaking the World.

Sociocracy and the Digital Cooperative with Kayleigh Walsh of Outlandish

7/19/2017
More
Beyond the salaried masses of 20th century bureaucracies and corporations… beyond the precarious moonlighters of the 21st century gig economy… lies the cooperative, an old answer with a new ring to it. Cooperatives are typically founded on seven basic principles set out in 1844: Voluntary and open membership Democratic member control Member economic participation Autonomy and … Continue reading Sociocracy and the Digital Cooperative with Kayleigh Walsh of Outlandish The post Sociocracy...

What is the contemporary? How do we build and inhabit our city in a way that gels with who we are, and who we’re becoming? How do we grow and work together as a community, without stepping on each others’ toes in haste, without getting slowed down and frustrated with red tape and liability?

From Design Thinking to Design Doing with Christian Bason

5/24/2017
More
Is Design Thinking becoming more about thinking than design? Management by post-its? As I’ve argued in previous blog posts, and in episode #8 of the Working Together Podcast, the cargo cult versions of design thinking (i.e. “post-it design”) tend to become polite, facilitated conversations around a table, but miss what the field of design itself … Continue reading From Design Thinking to Design Doing with Christian Bason The post From Design Thinking to Design Doing with Christian Bason...

Applied Theatre for Social Change and Self-Understanding with Warwick Dobson

5/10/2017
More
Theatre is more than just a form of live entertainment. When theatre is applied–to education, social justice and social change, community building efforts, conflict, disaster relief, and so on–the power of its technique and its content can transform our social relationships for the better. This is Applied Theatre. Usually coming in the form of participatory theatre created … Continue reading Applied Theatre for Social Change and Self-Understanding with Warwick Dobson The post Applied...

Making Everybody a Designer through the Collaborative Space of the Design Charrette with Patrick Condon

4/26/2017
More
As you can guess, I’m fascinated with what happens when you bring a diverse group of people together to solve problems. Think of the model of the work party, the barn raising, the “talkoot”, and apply it to deliberative democratic practice–whether at work or in your community. Working Together is all about this kind of … Continue reading Making Everybody a Designer through the Collaborative Space of the Design Charrette with Patrick Condon The post Making Everybody a Designer through the...

The Power of Circle and Story to Transform our Workplaces and Communities with Chris Corrigan

3/29/2017
More
I believe that the lowly old meeting can save the world. Sure, meetings are universally despised–who doesn’t hate meetings? We don’t plan them well. We run them terribly (god they can be so awkward sometimes!). In the worst examples, nothing comes from the meeting (except maybe a plan to have another meeting!). Yes. Meetings do … Continue reading The Power of Circle and Story to Transform our Workplaces and Communities with Chris Corrigan The post The Power of Circle and Story to...

How to Use Strategic Design to Become an Awesome Leader and Make an Impact in Your World

3/15/2017
More
I’ve always admired leaders who had a strong ability to bring everyone along. Without using power and manipulation to do so. These kind of leaders tend to be a rare breed–what I would oxymoronically call “honest politicians” of their field of work. Sometimes they were big names, who I had only encountered in biographies and historical … Continue reading How to Use Strategic Design to Become an Awesome Leader and Make an Impact in Your World The post How to Use Strategic Design to Become...

In episode #6 of the Working Together Podcast, I interview Peter MacLeod who founded MASS LBP–an organization that is pursuing the long-game of democratic innovation. What does democratic innovation look like? Well, in MASS LBPs case, it is a reinvention of public consultation through the pioneering use of Civic Lotteries and Reference Panels.

TWTP #5 – Mark Frauenfelder on the Maker Movement and the Blockchain Future

2/1/2017
More
The market continually strives to provide what we need or want. More. Cheaper. Faster. All this readily available stuff is replacing our natural inclination to make, tinker and fix. And as our lives get busier and busier, we have less time to “noodle around” in a workshop. When something breaks or wears out, instead of … Continue reading TWTP #5 – Mark Frauenfelder on the Maker Movement and the Blockchain Future The post TWTP #5 – Mark Frauenfelder on the Maker Movement and the Blockchain...

Do you ever go through a burst of inspiration and motivation, where everything seems to ‘click’ and you see exactly what you need to do to attain your goals? You sit down, crack open your journal, put everything together and write out your game plan. With your intentions set and your plan sketched out, you … Continue reading TWTP #3: How do you make Resolutions that Stick?
