hello stigmergy

  1. 1. ..with stigmergy, an initial idea is freely given, and the project is driven by the idea, not by a personality or group of personalities…
  2. 2. ..with stigmergy, an initial idea is freely given, and the project is driven by the idea, not by a personality or group of personalities… ..no individual needs permission (competitive) or consensus (cooperative) to propose an idea or initiate a project. there is no need to discuss or vote on the idea, if an idea is exciting or necessary it will attract interest.
  3. 3. ..with stigmergy, an initial idea is freely given, and the project is driven by the idea, not by a personality or group of personalities… ..no individual needs permission (competitive) or consensus (cooperative) to propose an idea or initiate a project. there is no need to discuss or vote on the idea, if an idea is exciting or necessary it will attract interest. ..the interest attracted will be from people actively involved in the system and willing to put effort into carrying the project further, not empty votes from people with little interest or involvement. - Heather Marsh @kevin carson

  7. 7. @ 99 and 1
  8. 8. ..it makes far more sense for each person to do what she is best at, and let others make use of her contributions in whatever way is relevant to their own talents. …it is unnecessary to seek start up funding and supporters; if an idea is good it will receive the support required. (in practice, that is not true yet, a few people have the free time to put into volunteer projects because most are tied to compulsory work under the existing financial system.) ..if you have a large assembly of people who are forced to agree on every movement, including the mechanism for what constitutes such agreement, then you rarely achieve anything at all. … no matter how intelligent the people staffing a large institution are as individuals, hierarchy makes their intelligence unusable. .. a corporate hierarchy interferes with the judgment of what Friedrich Hayek called “people-on-the- spot,” ..
  9. 9. because ultimately, ie: climate change is not the issue. ultimately, the issue is our collective ability to observe, think, feel, decide, act, and reflect on our actions and their results. if we can do that well, we can deal well with every issue we face because – thanks to our own cognitive feedback powers – it doesn’t matter where we start. - Tom Altee @kevin carson
