  4. 4. I remember reading once that the late comedianGeorge Carlin used to hate it whenever anyonelabeled him a cynic; whenever anyone did, he wouldcorrect them by referring to himself as adisappointed idealist. The distinction was importantto him, and I get it. To be an idealist is to hold tightto the belief that regardless of how jaded anenvironment has become, there is still a place andmaybe a reward for someone who chooses to platto a different standard.Youngme MoonDifferent: Escaping the Competitive Herd /pg. 226

  34. 34. "Every time we gather becomes a model of the futurewe want to create" (Block, 2008). Your question Sylviatook me back to this quote - and left me wonderingabout how the exchanges, gatherings, convenings atthe heart of social learning spaces - really arerepresentative of a future still in creation. It thenbecomes less about the online platform or the meetingroom - but more about that "social artistry" thatsrequired to intentionally scaffold social learning spacesthat are representative of a preferred future…Blocksquote takes me to a place of recognizing that eachinterview, each email of information, each tweet withina CoP can be seen as integral of the process of futurecreation.Jonny Morris via CPSquare
