vulnerability in context

  1. 1. many love bikes. not so many love cycles. at least not the ones that perpetuate mindlessness via oppression/compulsion/dependence/blindness. and especially not when there is a means to break away. perhaps now… is one of those times. maybe we say...
  2. 2. @stigmergy Stigmergy is a form of self-organization. It produces complex, seemingly intelligent structures, without need for any planning, control, or even direct communication between the agents.
  3. 3. … 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,” ..
  4. 4. “people-on-the-spot,” .. ..open source insurgencies (stigmergies) don’t run on detailed instructional manual that describe tactics and techniques. rather, they just run on “plausible premises.” you just put out the plausible premise – ie: the suggestion based on your gut intuition, based on current technical possibilities. that something can be done… -John Robb
  5. 5. Mary Catherine Bateson decided at one point to quit prepping for all her speaking engagements. She decided that what matters most – is to practice – She said it was then that she started experiencing a aliveness. You have to be alive to confront/embrace perpetual beta. And doing that while in front of a crowd. Rather than presenting… in the moment. an ongoing conversation.. with no map.. rather than a presentation. @mary catherin bateson
  6. 6. It is perhaps because we have not learned to recognize and respect existing order in unfamiliar forms that we are frightened of social change, unwilling to support and work with the forms that peoples find for themselves. Young people must be prepared to feel like newly arrived immigrants through much of their lives. They (we all) need to know how to observe, how to learn, how to adapt, how to draw on other people’s expertise. How to improvise and cope with only partial knowledge and how to imagine alternatives. - Mary Catherine Bateson @improve
  7. 7. a child at play is .. let’s get ourselves back to that natural/healthy/thriving/chaordic state.
