New and old Conversationalists alike: most welcome. Happy to count 759 people as members. Feel free to use the #Introductions
topic. Tell your story and what conversations you would like to read and engage in.Conversation Community Five Step How To:
1. Content: Share Once Monthly Or More
Add content. Review. If something you added leads to engagement, do a little more of that. If not, do something different.
2. Context: Read, Listen, Learn, Understand
Evolve your own content filtering capability by selecting two types of content - the type of content you like to read, and the type that will help you understand how to get traction in the community.
3. Community: Connect
Add value to the community based on your own understanding from step 1 and 2.
4. Context: Collaborate
Add value to others, eg through commenting in their threads.
5. Content: Cocreate
Engage so as to improve your return on engagement through a #winwinwin
disposition, based on what holds value to you.

This is a new paradigm for humanity and it has huge implications for the complete reordering of society."

A conversation between +Maher Khalifa +John Verdon +John Kellden
and +Akira Bergman "Conversations leads to relationships that leads to exchange of ideas and goods, it is the most fundamental part of being. I am non religious but the bible brings this home with 'in the beginning was the word'. That is the one thing that holds, even if not spoken then in thought, it is the catalyst to every creative act."
-- +Steven Putter "A friend of mine taught me something very wise, which is this: to discover that we have a unique voice, we must first reconcile ourselves with the sadness that our innate voice is not understood by those around us. It is the passion to make this unheard voice a bridge into the wider culture that creates art.Our art is a more lasting memetic heritage, for many of us, than our children will provide us. We live on in the culture through art, teaching, memetics, science -- the epigenetics of the noosphere."
