    • dealing with
      one another
      in a market
      can fundamentally alter
      our relationship with one another.
    • introducing
      the fine

      culture of trust
    • learning is not about proof.
      learning is about learning.
      and sharing.
      we need to un-market school
      or move on without it.
    • You don’t need an MBA, a certificate, a fancy suit, a briefcase, or an above-average tolerance for risk.
      You just need an idea,
      a touch of confidence,
      and a push to get
      started .
    • When things are(n’t) working, the natural inclination is to throw more at the problem. More people, time and money.
      All that ends up doing is making the problem bigger.
      Instead.. Cut back.
    • There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way it treats it’s children.

    • Deborah Meier’s writes the foreword of Dennis Littky’s The Big Picture, Ed is Everyone’s Business:
      Thousands of years of history suggest that the schoolhouse as we know it is an absurd way to rear our young; it’s contrary to everything we know about what it is to be a human being. For example, we know that doing and talking are what most successful people are very good at – that’s where they truly show their stuff. We know that reading and writing are important, but also that these are things that only a rather small and specialized group of people is primarily good at doing. And yet we persist in a form of schooling that measures our children’s “achievement” largely in the latter terms, not the former… and sometimes through written tests alone.
    • The benefit to the artist is that you changed in some way,
      not that you will repay him.

    • (does it matter, is it awesome)

      to give it away.

      Passion comes from within each of us,
      it cannot be imposed or mandated from outside.
    • What might
      define a
      fully lived?
      It’s a question
      many of us probably mean to ask ourselves.
      But never do.

    • Just deliver.
      Don’t document unless the
      document is going to add value.
      We often think we need documentation to cover our backs, prove we have been doing things. Well – if you’re doing things, especially if you’re doing your best, no back to cover. If you’re accountable, you’re accountable.
      -Sahana Chattopadhyay
    • Maturity, soul, personal strength, and doing it for the right reasons.

    • We need to urgently think about how the blurring of lines between currencies and everything else will affect us, our relationships, and our physical economies.  How we create and measure value is going through a change that has not been seen in over 600 years—since the emergence of the first systematic nationalized currencies. It is profoundly affecting the central vs. distributed control of value, and the archetypes that surround how we measure value.  
      Can reputation be a currency? - Venessa Miemis
      It’s uncontrollable, it’s ungovernable, but all this sharing serves a need.  This is all human potential that’s been bottled up, constrained by the lack of connectivity across the planet.  Now that this barrier is well and truly down, we have unprecedented capability to pool our eyes, ears and hands, putting ourselves to work toward whatever ends we might consider appropriate.
      Even so, we can start to see how all of this information provided by our things feeds into our most innate human characteristic – the need to share.

    • What is your best motivator:
      Dan Pink – progress.
      Simon Sinek – momentum.
      Rework - Momentum fuels motivation.
      It keeps you going. It drives you.
      If you’re not motivated by what you’re working on, it won’t be very good.
    • You should feel an urgency about this too.
      You don’t have forever.

    • Imagine how much time/money/energy/people we currently spend on policy. Imagine if we did things differently.
    • What if our focus was offense..
    • And our policy was simple..
      simple rules/aup/agenda/etc
      simple mantra:
      -Keri Smith
      taken from Will Richardson’s: be safe, be ethical, be efficient
