Hosting Conversations about Questions that Matter
I have one!
Speaking of collective activities, I keep wondering that the science, dynamics, kinetics, mathematics, architecture and overall patterns are worthy to be considered as well. In the case of conversations and intellectual interactions among humans, like this one over the World Café, the types of emergent activities, might exceed the expectations. If you would know who is involved with the system science aspects of these discussions, please let me know. Best, Alireza
Hi Ali! haven't got to read your paper yet, thanks again for it.
much resonating with your wondering :) even so i am not an expert in the domains you name, i feel attracted to utilize them to increase the "social value" of this Online Community and social technologies in general both online and inlife.
Did you see what is going on in the group "Caring for this Online Community"? i'd love to invite your thoughts on what i wrote here...
on a different, but (at least in me) similar track i also would like to invite your thoughts on this idea i formulated recently: http://wp.me/pyPX5-bJ
could you expand a bit on "emergent activities exceeding the expectations"?
Benjamin: Thanks. Some notes below for your consideration;
in the social domain, like all things two things are going on at their own time scale: foreground and background processes that at times the flows can intersect with each other. This is almost like a gestalt view of social currents. In this regard, a lot of analogical thinking from dynamics and math models may help, but to a certain degree.
I'll look up the other two links.
