This essay about jihadism reminds me of Bruce Alexander's theory of addiction. When social relationships break down people turn to more potent options, not always with good results.

Worth a read with regard to 'onboarding' themes - not because we want to create jihadis but to think about the different styles of group belonging and where they come from. As the author Kenan Malik points out in another post, it's quite similar with people joining up with 'alt-right' movements in the West.

+Ted Newcomb +Robert Best +Roland Legrand Just want to point out that +Fabrizio Terzi is talking here about something very similar to what came up in our "Metacaugs/Peeragogy Mash" with +Charles Danoff
and +Charlotte Pierce.

At the place where I was an undergrad (New College of Florida), there were no grades, but there were contracts. This was similar to the game of Bridge; e.g., I would bid take 7 classes (or some ridiculous number!) and pass 4 of them. Each of the classes was graded pass/fail. More than a handful of times I failed a class, but I managed to always pass at the "contract" level. The failed classes don't even show up on my transcript. It was a very forgiving place. University of Texas, where I went after that, less so!

Another great thing about New College was that students had to do self-evaluations every semester, along with the pass/fail stats coming from the classroom performance. So things like "I realise that because I failed Physics 2, I should focus on something else next time" or "I managed to pass Economics, but I actually didn't enjoy it that much; what I need is a more interdisciplinary approach." (I'm paraphrasing.)

I wonder if this sort of thing could be useful in the world of blockchain, where, granted "Contract" has another quite specific technical meaning.
P-DAO as Peeragogical Decentralized Autonomous Organization.
Contribution Contracts in Education and projects fields.

C/o Slashdot > Google today quietly announced that Google+ Hangouts On Air will no longer be available on September 12. Four weeks from now, Google users will be asked to use YouTube Live instead. Google first debuted the livestreaming feature for its Hangouts group video chat on Google+ back in September 2011, though it was only available to select performers and celebrities. Google started making Hangouts On Air available to all its users in May 2012, and completed the rollout a month later. But then in May 2013, Google debuted YouTube Live, which also gradually became available to more and more users.

I found this slightly long but interesting article both simple and intuitive. What allows people here to feel comfortable speaking up? Is the peeragogy project "psychologically safe" (and how could it improve?)?

Call for papers COINs16 | rome, italy | 8.Jun - 10.Jun 2016
http://coinsconference.org - brought to us by +Takashi Iba (thanks!)

CALL FOR PAPERS: http://coinsconference.org/dwnl/COINS16Call4Papers.pdf

The COINS16 conference committee seeks original paper submissions, creative workshop ideas and concepts, unique artifacts or installations, and engaging rapid-fire presentations celebrating the theme Designing Networks for Innovation and Improvisation. This year we are asking what is relevant with regard to the innovative and improvisational powers of creative and civic swarms, what are the observable qualities of virtual collaboration and mobilization, and how does the quest for global cooperation affect local networks. We invite both theoretical and practice-based dialogues, case studies, scientific papers, technological solutions, research studies, and interactive artifacts that thoroughly reflect this year’s conference theme.

We invite researchers and designers to submit their latest scientific results and experimental design solutions as research papers, workshop proposals, and artifact demonstrations in the
following conference themes:

Networks & Collaboration in a Global Context: Optimization through Collaboration | Teamwork through virtually enhanced collaboration | Measuring the performance of COINs | Patterns of swarm creativity

Group Dynamics, Social Movements & Net Activism: Collaborative Learning | Collaborative Leadership | Design & visualization of interdisciplinary collaboration | Virtual Teaming │Knowledge flows in multiple-disciplinary teams

Individual & Social Learning: The psychology and sociality of collaboration and collective action | Social Behavior Modeling | Social Intelligence and Social Cognition

Tools and Methods: Social System Design and Architectures | Dynamic Social Network Analysis | Semantic Social Network Analysis | Actor Network Theory | Pattern Languages

Next week we welcome feedback from newcomers to inform our "onboarding" process, and we'll discuss how to refine and sustain achievable progress in the Peeragogy Project.
Join us for a conversation with currently active peeragogues and Peeragogy Handbook editors & contributors.

This week we'll review protocols for onboarding for newcomers, and ways to define & achieve sustainable progress in the Peeragogy Project.

You may download the public domain version of the Handbook at GitHub: https://github.com/Peeragogy or order the print book on IndieBound (or that other big online retailer).

It's a vision statement, but is it practical? After having read the
pattern, "what's next" in the peeragogy project leads to this.

Frameworks - methods - patterns
"This is a pattern - a pattern is a thing - it's a scaffolding,
framework, method, etc."
patterns as a framework for peeragogy

"There was a little thing that I noticed in gitter . . . if you're an
external person and you're told, "this is a pattern, it is a thing, it
is a utility, it's a method . . . pattern (can seem to mean) an
individual thing and might lead to misunderstanding"
"But is this getting into who the audience is? Because the pattern
language people will understand it" (Charlotte)
But for someone who is just coming in, it may be a bit confusing,
"it's like Moses' tablet . . . if Moses came in and started with
talking about peeragogy . . . "
"I think Charlotte's point is significant" (charlie)
"But someone may come up and say . . . " (joe)
". . . just extend the patterns of peeragogy, but then . . . we should
be using these patterns as a framework for our hangouts" (charlie)
"Like a sesame st intro, "this hangout brought to you by hangouts" (joe)
"patterns, patterns, everywhere, but not a drop to drink" if you don't
know what patterns are." (joe)

"the cover is literally a "wrapper" for the handbook . . . there's a
lot going on in the cover . . . a lot of summing up five years of work
in two pages."
The indigogo text is like, "what have we done? What changes should we
undergo . . . from something Charlie and I did in Africa . . . a week
or something of seminars"

But it is important because we are focused on dynamics and these

And make for lack of consistency. It is not a mathematic equation but is fluid.

that didn't work and really clarifying the next step, address the lack
of clarity for moving forward" (lisa) .
