  • Tiffany von Emmel is the Founder and CEO of Dreamfish, a global work cooperative for all. Tiffany is an interactivist, offering designs for economic production and knowledge that promote a thriving planet. She meshes ideas from open source software culture, systems thinking, and performance research.
  • We are in a Global job crisis. 200 million in extreme poverty. Anyone here ever had a hard time to find work? for any reason – immigrant, illness, traumatized, lived in a low-income area, unemployed for awhile? A lot of us in the room are looking for work. Why? Money, yes. Self-respect, make something happen, yes. Building something larger than ourselves, we grow as humans.
  • Sweatshops. Power games. Being treated as expendable commodities. So, many of us say, hey I will work for myself. I’ll freelance. Freelancing is cool, but we’re social mammals. We learn in relationship.

  • hey I will work for myself. I’ll freelance. Freelancing is cool, but we’re social mammals. We learn in relationship. And, we can’t do it alone.
  • transition
  • Respect. We all bring some value to the table. Do you know how brilliant the shy person is? Or the one misspelling words in chat - she walked 10 miles to get internet in a café to code, and chat in a second language at 2am. We never know what suffering we each experience. But when we get curious about how brilliant another can be, people are more likely to step up.
  • Diversity teaches us to get good with not knowing what we don’t know. When we love that things do not fit into the boxes in our minds, when we get good with ambiguity, we are better able to respond quickly to uncertainty. We grasp less for the certainty of consumption, pricy status objects, and 20 page requirements documents. We get efficient. Then, when things come flying, like an economic crisis, we don’t get paralyzed by old patterns of how things should look. We can listen and dance in the gaps between what we know and what is unfolding.
  • People who can thrive in harsh conditions, are really good connectors. More interconnections frees up more value. Distribution of connection spreads out cost of effort.
  • We have feelings and families. We have bodies and histories. We have cultures and talents unfolding. When we think of ourselves as productive resources, we disappear the richness of who we are bringing, and what we are capable of. (Photo of @Evan, founder of Status.net, aka Identica)
