Spotted two of our partners +Mike Davis-Marks and +Adrian Ulisse in this video - Smile ;-)
I really like this video production.  I would be keen to get whoever did this to cover our http://ethosvo.org events too.  Any ideas who did it?

I'll ask Rene (CEO Inspired Leaders Network).  Adrian and I are due to meet him for a Smart City chat.  I have a not so secret agenda to recruit him as a partner - he is a phenomenal facilitator and speaker.

One of our challenges is now to get those partner stories in the same format.

21C Workflow  - 
 
+John Kellden I want to share a pattern that I have observed.  Several times. Inside and outside of my organisation.  

It's to do with people that have not yet had an epiphany that collaboration/trust/moderation and open governance / democratic organisations can really work for them or the organisations they belong to.  

The realities of networked societies (Castells) or Collaborative commons (Rifkin et al) they might understand (or not) intellectually from their heads but these realities absolutely do not form part of their narratives.

They find themselves observing such these realities but not sufficiently aligning with them but nevertheless they are implicated either through work, governance or a perceived competitive threat or opportunity.

The reality I describe above is currently one in which most people on the planet find themselves.  Most people will successfully emerge into a new paradigm an become staunch supporters.  Not all will make it.

New paradigms only happen every few hundred years or so.  Really new ones anyway.  So what are the patterns to accelerate the transformation and to maximize the chances that people survive the change?

I have lots of case studies if you are looking for experimentation material!

The mother of all demos.  Other than a bit prettier - the functionality is all there ;-)  The inventor of the mouse talks through his demo that looks much like the web...

Welcome to the Network  - 
 
I'm Rob Pye one of the co-founders of Ethos along with Tony Clarke. This experiment which I am guessing will last the rest of my life started in 1999 when I kinda perceived the World rather differently (post industrially, perhaps).  

I am a problem solver, connector (in a way much broader than people) and like asking questions like: How can the web create a [better version of] Ernst & Young in an instant? How do we replicate all of their competencies, capabilities, trust, brand and suchlike?  Without all the nonsense and wasted time, energy and talent? Without the hierarchies? Without quite so much inequality?  I think we are getting closer.  I work from home in mostly.  Travel to London perhaps a few days a week.  We have the "capability" to do what most companies "do" in offices over the web.  Except for breaking-bread f2f socialising and drinking.   I'm passionate about helping to shape the future of work, what the future holds for us and out children.  I've never worked anywhere for more than 6 years but this doesn't feel like work to me.  I suspect that you will have to carry me out of Ethos in a box.  One way or other...

Inspiring vision, Rob - we're with you. With a minor remark that nation states could also be considered as transitory structures, if on a longer term :-)

Facebook will burn out 'like an infectious disease': Social network has peaked and will lose 80% of its users within a YEAR, claim researchers
Daily Mail Online
Researchers from Princeton used epidemiological models usually used to study disease - and say the 'decline phase' has already begun.

London open data.  It's happening - slowly.
Using data to encourage Londoners and entrepreneurs to engage more in how the city is performing.
