The Code of Conduct is a Pattern
Looking back, I think we will see this moment in history -- when the idea of a code of conduct began propagating -- as one of the turning points in the development of self-organized systems. "Of course!" we will say, "Without a code of conduct some people s...

Post-Capitalism
Some very interesting thoughts in this article . Apparently there's a book just out on the subject, as well.

The Best Summary of Teal Organizations So Far
Here is a slide deck that gives quite a thorough introduction to Teal organizations, including insights that I've also spontaneously considered in my own research. I think I've seen (and perhaps linked to) an earlier version of this deck but if so it has go...

Drive
Apple Watch OwnersFriends and Family Registration for Early User Insights At Wristly we are planning to build a very cool software solution to help teams create better apps faster and consequently delight Watch users. Our first step, however, is a lot less ambitious yet still critical. It is simply to create a small but very interesting piece of daily content about the watch, its users and its usage. Internally we call this first project our “Amuse Bouche” full ...

Holacracy vs. Teal
(I've been rather absent from here lately, working on the now-complete  Second Edition of Atomic Scala . However, more programming-oriented projects are in the queue so posts here might be spotty). Here's a nice article on Holacracy . When I took the traini...

Nice to see integral/spiral dynamics concepts presented at OSCON! I didn't attend this year so I don't have an accurate flavor of the presentation as delivered, but one thing that I think would further enhance the impact is to include some introspective (UL) content along with the systems-thinking (LR) content.

I can appreciate the context of your comment "You can't trust your brain. You need to apply science before drawing conclusions". We fool ourselves in so many ways and science gives us an objective reference against which to check our subjective assumptions. At the same time, science can't give us the whole story, and so it's also helpful to have other practices (such as meditation or other practices) that facilitate a broader awareness and ability to take multiple perspectives without getting stuck in any one particular worldview.

The shift from orange and green to teal and turquoise, I think, can be facilitated by taking perspectives across the AQAL spectrum -- quadrants, lines, types, etc.

Once again, nice to see this stuff at OSCON!

Big Improvements In Ebook Creation. 31 Mar 2015. I just finished the eBook of the 2nd edition of Atomic Scala. The PDF is, of course, the easiest since it gets created directly from Word (before you tell me I should use something other than Word — I have done numerous experiments, and Word still ...
