Hey there good people,
i am holding the perspective of this online space being a rich pool of ressources, a place that gathers many very interesting people around the world and is a plattform for meaningful conversations.
I believe that there is hardly anything more inspiring and motivating as to be in an environment where you feel heard, appreciated and where people care about what you think and follow-up on ideas that are in the air...
so, of course this works better face to face, but i like to see this virtual playground we have as a great chance and invitation to create nurturing and vibrant places for sharing online.
one important notion that needs to be in place to do that is to enable the community to see itself - so i am experimenting with ways of visualizing the collective and put different mirrors in the center with the intention to inspire a perspective of abundance. Enabling the circle to see it's own brilliance and potential.
Some other notes and thoughts on that line here
. And i actually have a really cool idea on how to make the whole
content of the site visible at once and make latest activities or contributions from specific people easily visible... let me know if you want to hear more ;) i am looking for start capital and programmers who can help me realize it.
I am looking for ideas on some sort of "immersive gaming" / "strategic weaving" where we invite people to leave comments on the profiles of 10 people they find interesting...
Is there a whole new perspective that i haven't thought of? please surprise or confuse me...
I invite you to join me in this inquiry on what could be fun and meaningful to play with - we are almost 2500 people in this online community and i believe there is endless potential to discover when we keep flirting with the possibilities that are just waiting to be harvested :)
I am interested in hearing from you how you do this in your work with groups out there in process consultation or any other social setting... what is it that makes a group feel that they are a group? and what conditions are fostering motivation and inspiration to play with this group of people?
