21C Engagement - Return on Engagement
 
Life in the Village, episode 369: Liminal Space

"In a network, the best place to story magic is between people."
@johnkellden   

"Listen to people. Real people. People you know and people you trust because you know they are trust-worthy. Don’t just listen. Engage. And expand your web of trust. Find out who the people you trust, trust and engage with them."
-- +Jordan Greenhall 
During liminal periods of all kinds, social hierarchies may be reversed or temporarily dissolved, continuity of tradition may become…

21C Literacies - Public storytelling

Deller and Norris’ work, which has seen soldiers congregating without ceremony in public places up and down the country, was a commemoration to the 19,240 men who died on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, 100 years ago today.

Images and videos of the modern day participants – some walking, some sitting and waiting, all silent apart from the occasional song – emerged online as the public first encountered the soldiers this morning.

We’re Here Because We’re Here – Jeremy Deller’s silent commemoration of the soldiers of the Somme (http://www.creativereview.co.uk/cr-blog/2016/july/were-here-because-were-here-jeremy-dellers-silent-commemoration-to-the-soldiers-of-the-somme/)

Belfast - https://goo.gl/nOlJru
Thousands of soldiers dressed in First World War uniforms appeared in towns and cities across the UK today as part of a live public memorial on an unprecedented scale. The project, marking the centenary of the Battle of the Somme, was conceived by artist Jeremy Deller and the National Theatre's ...

Really sorry to see Northern Ireland go out earlier this evening after an heroic onslaught against Wales. But this is just superb...
That would be Eric Cantona as you have never seen him before, nor are likely to ever again…

21C Governance - Delivery, delivery, delivery

The new politics — and by that I mean new models and government as well as new political messages or electoral positions — has to deliver for real on the false promise of the populists: that people can feel a sense of belonging and trust in their societies, that they need no longer feel strangers to the institutions that govern them, that they can be involved and connected in the decisions that are made about their lives.

The week before last I gave a speech on democracy in a time of populism and security concerns, unrelated to the EU directly but delivered…

21 C - How can we inspire using data?
The true power of data comes from conveying the “so what” behind the numbers, inspiring people to probe new questions, and using it for rigorous statistical inquiry.

21C Narratives - Play in networks and the release of new stories
 
Meaning moving with, episode 1: Permission to play

"In a network, the miracle of infinite play as a function of evolution, evonetworking, emergence, econormalisation, evolvement, equipotentiality, eudaimonia, economics, ecosystemics, equity, essentialization - is that 7bn human beings going on 9bn can be invited to participate in a diverse set of convivial local economies which co-evolve with distributed networks, forming a planetwide covenant, adapting to our common needs, our assuming stewardship and serving our evolutionary trajectories."

The societal, cultural, organizing bodies and vessels through which this can be realized, can be returned to health via individual, team and collective agency focussed on transforming our thinking, relating and acting things through together. This return to healthy and wholesome societal and cultural rhythms and newfound resonances, can be seen as an ongoing bundle of nested interdependent generative sequences, where convergence(discussion, analysis, zooming in, detail) weaving together with divergence(dialogue, synthesis, zooming out, gestalt) forms new narratives in which 21C Storytelling together with a whole ecosystem of approaches will proliferate and produce the necessary boundary conditions:

reach, resonance, reflexivity, response-ability & reach

Applied, a new set of boundary objects, ontologies, glossaries, making for
- attention turning into awareness
- will turning into flow
- performance turning into intelligence, into wisdom
- behavior turning into imagination, into conviviality
- attention returning to its source: our here and now

Maps, models, cards, diagrams and theories all play an important part in catalyzing, providing a place for and developing - shared and shareable understanding.

This shareable understanding can then, augmented by appropriate technologies (language, conversation, story, web) turn into
- participatory sensemaking, playfulness dispositions & participatory practices
- contexts of mutuality and learning
- boundary objects co-evolving with work and play, with building blocks and forces
- solution spaces increasingly relevant and meaningful to
- problem domains, from which
new questions forms, further informing slightly new, different, better maps, models, cards, diagrams and theories.

How? I'm glad you asked:
- story
- tasks
- review

The timeflows through the above outlined generative sequences, a weaving together of Kairos(story) and Chronos(project) - sometimes linear, sometimes non-linear - at times, meaningful events when we make good things happen - all the time realizing some thinks take time and some other thinks make time. Time to play.

"Hold every hour in your grasp. Lay hold of today's task, and you will not need to depend so much upon tomorrow's. While we are postponing, life speeds by. Nothing, Lucilius, is ours, except time."
-- Lucius Annaeus Seneca     http://goo.gl/Hh1zwf

Kairos
The right or opportune moment. The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While the former refers to chronological or sequential time, the latter signifies a time between, a moment of indeterminate time in which something special happens. What the special something is depends on who is enacting what unfolding storyline, a human evolutionary trajectory traveller, embracing quaternions like Walt Whitman embraced the song of the phoebe-bird.
