The Next Edge Festival - Emerging JUNE 2015
http://thenextedge.is/ <-- Earlybird registration open
"What happens when a virtual network of change-makers collide in physical space?"

This inagural festival/summit/retreat should be of interest to many of us here. In fact, it was fellow CICW members that conceived of this event and made it happen. (+kevin jones +Seb Paquet ) Many of our members have already registered to attend, which now includes me! 

In reading through some of the "Co-Creator" profiles, it is clear that the festival will have a collective intelligence theme. (Whether it is made explicit or not)

Profiles that currently directly refer to "Collective Intelligence" belong to:
+Connor Turland +Flemming Funch +George Pór +Helene Finidori 

You can find the expanding list of festival Co-Creators here: http://thenextedge.is/co-creators/

I am definitely excited to be going! Here is some more information taken from the website: (Or just head there)

"Over the past four years, a root network of pioneers, future-hunters and visionaries has been quietly growing underground. From a small initial seed, the Next Edge has blossomed to a diverse global community that is now thousands strong and thinking every day about the challenges of our time."

"Collectively, we hold an impressive amount of wisdom and a wide diversity of perspectives and understandings of the systems that make the world go - and of what makes them fall short of what’s needed in these times of accelerating change. Now, many of us sense the time has come to go beyond sensemaking and into doing together. How can we invest more deeply in each other? How might we become much more than the sum of our parts? This is the challenge we are taking on with this Festival."

THEMES
The Future of Work // Emergence // Decentralized Systems // Social Enterprise & Investment // Learning // Design for Sustainability & Thrivability // Wirearchy // Peer-to-Peer Technology // The Commons // Art of Hosting // Culture Hacking // Collaborative Networks // Transition & Permaculture // Regenerative Economy // New Currencies // Empowering Humans // Personal and Social Transformation // Reinventing Organizations

Happy and Positive Earth Day!

A beautiful and very beneficial documentary - online HD view:
_R_EVOLUTION is a film about changing the world, going for it, taking a stand, and truly acting towards the positive. A true-life adventure following for over four years and 15 countries Director, Rob Stewart (creator of the very popular Sharkwater documentary), discovering there is a lot more than sharks at risk of becoming extinct if We do not act now.

A Metaphysical/Vibrational/Logical consideration:
The true power is in clearly dreaming, trusting, focusing on and creating together new systems - and not judging, or focusing on, or seeking to destroy the old ones ;)

I originally meant for this post to be shared here... I just noticed that I shared it publicly instead.

The presentation to MIT is happening today here if you would like to tune in.
http://t.co/KRb3UDfHn1
 
Tomorrow (April 2nd) we will be demonstrating a bunch of the tools we've developed on an MIT webinar call, but today (April 1st) we unveil them first to you, our friends. Also, we need to practice showing and talking about these things, so we're hoping you'll cut us some slack if there's glitches in the demo process.

So if you've been wondering when you'll get to see some of the stuff we've been building (Eric and I around MetaCurrency work), here's your chance. Warning: Do NOT expect a full-blown currency system, Ceptr is the underlying tools that make those kinds of things possible in ways currently impossible. DO expect to see:  semantic trees, fractal receptors, semtrex as a general semantic pattern matching system, a preview of our distributed network technology, followed by Q&A and discussion.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Robert Best. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Great read! I view impending post-privacy era rather favorably as a cambrian explosion of social narrative and proactive culture craft. The effects this will have on individualist psychologies and objectivism in general are appropriately earthshaking. Collective intelligence comes into its own - with of course a dodgy shadow side for some time yet:
Google knows what you're looking for. Facebook knows what you like. Sharing is the norm, and secrecy is out. But what is the psychological and cultural fallout from the end of privacy?

The movement from unicellular to multicellular organisms - a breakthrough in evolution shaped by the ability to cooperate
Scientists are discovering ways in which single cells might have evolved traits that entrenched them into group behavior, paving the way for multicellular life. These discoveries could shed light on how complex extraterrestrial life might evolve on alien worlds.

Those are just catchwords developed by Anonymous to signify what I describe as the psy-ops side of the movement. I make small attempts to poke holes in the dualistic thinking that blinds us to perception of our relationship to the Universe, and to challenge artificial divisions that result in conflict. 

Here's a link that expresses it rather nicely.

"....one of the architects of the mindfulness revolution, claims mindfulness 'has the potential to ignite a universal or global renaissance that . . . would put even the European and Italian Renaissance into the shade . . . [and] that may actually be the only promise the species and the planet have for making it through the next couple hundred years..."

I happen to agree with this.
If meditation ordinarily leads to numbing detachment, what would a meditation that valued self-discovery look like?

Qualitative dimensions of Collective Intelligence

In this essay Charles Eisenstein questions: Do groups have a sentience that transcends the sentience of their parts? Do they have, whether in actuality or in potential, a capacity for morality or wisdom that cannot be reduced to mere problem-solving efficiency? Is it meaningful to speak of the desire, the intention, the purposiveness of a group as distinct from that of its members?

This article appeared in Spanda Journal (v. 2/2014) Abstract:  This essay plays with two definitions of collective intelligence, drawing on two meanings of the word "intelligent" that bring to bear relevant arguments from the philosophy of mind, particularly in reference to artificial intelligence (AI) and its distinction between "strong AI" and "weak AI." One definition associates intelligence with the ability to perform tasks involving logic, r...

"The challenging realities of growing inequality, political stalemate, and climate disruption prompt an important insight. When the old ways no longer produce the outcomes we are looking for, something deeper is occurring.

We are at or near the bottom among advanced democracies across a score of key indicators of national well-being—including relative poverty, inequality, education, social mobility, health, environment, militarization, democracy, and more.

We have fundamental problems because of fundamental flaws in our economic and political system. The crisis now unfolding in so many ways across our country amounts to a systemic crisis.

Today’s political economic system is not programmed to secure the wellbeing of people, place and planet. Instead, its priorities are corporate profits, the growth of GDP, and the projection of national power.

Large-scale system change is needed but has until recently been constrained by a continuing lack of imagination concerning social, economic and political alternatives. There are alternatives that can lead to the systemic change we need.

What's next? "
We can create the kind of society—and world—we’d like now and for future generations

I can't get enough of diving into the metameme of conscious evolution!  

"Conscious evolution is occurring now because we are gaining an understanding of the processes of nature: the gene, the atom, the brain, the origin of the universe, and the whole story of creation from the big bang to us. We are now changing our understanding of how nature evolves; we are moving from unconscious evolution through natural selection to conscious evolution by choice. With this increased knowledge and the power that it gives us, we can destroy the world or we can participate in a future of immeasurable dimensions. Into our hands has been given the power of codestruction or cocreation.

As Jonas Salk stated in Anatomy of Reality:

The most meaningful activity in which a human being can be engaged is one that is directly related to human evolution. This is true because human beings now play an active and critical role not only in the process of their own evolution but in the survival and evolution of all living beings. Awareness of this places upon human beings a responsibility for their participation in and contribution to the process of evolution. If humankind would accept and acknowledge this responsibility and become creatively engaged in the process of metabiological evolution consciously, as well as unconsciously, a new reality would emerge, and a new age would be born."
How new worldviews emerge and social change occurs, and how a new awakening is beginning from the ground up.

Hmmm, what to say?  I write a LOT of poetry and think alot about how to improve things.  This seems like one of the most important concepts that is taking advantage of the interconnectedness that the web is lending humanity.  I just wonder how all of these various efforts can be consolidated rather than scattered far and wide.  I have my own thoughts on all of this that I'll get around to sharing sooner or later.  It seems that critical to the effort is a tool that allows for the "bubbling up" of the best ideas in some way.  I have yet to see such a tool.  The +1 of G+ is nice but it doesn't seem to allow the top, most accepted ideas to bubble up...or maybe I'm just missing it.
