Thanks for your interest, +Joe Corneli  --here's my Original Digital project page, which I haven't worked on at all for a while...
http://originaldigital.storyworkers.org/
and here's my current blog, Grandpa's Suspenders, http://stringgamestories.blogspot.com/
which has mostly been about  stuff lately, but I almost always manage to bring up string games....
I was just alerted by a CLMOOC share to Google's Collections, so I started a String Game Collection, but I haven't gotten very far yet.

tl;dr: see the summary on http://www.creativitypost.com/business/effective_feedback_the_little_known_secret_to_pixars_creative_success

I read this book cover-to-cover on my flight from LHR to SFO yesterday.  I initially saw it as a recommendation in the Amazon reviews of a book by Linda Hill (http://collectivegeniusbook.com/) -- one reviewer of that book said the Pixar example was the most interesting case study.  (Cf. https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JoeCorneli/posts/Lfv86BxMQ5T for a TED talk from Prof. Hill.)

Indeed, the "Creativity, Inc." book was a good read, and I noticed some commonalities with what we do here in Ed Catmull's description of Pixar's Braintrust -- where directors, producers, and other people involved with creating Pixar's movies meet to workshop works-in-progress.   He talks about how any complex problem is way beyond what any one person can deal with -- for one thing, we just don't see all the sides of the issue. 

The most interesting thing is how Catmull is continually trying to step up the game at Pixar, by applying the same ideas to critiquing and improving its culture.  I think we try to do that here too -- it's good to learn what we can from the pros.

Lots of interesting practical examples about how this sort of view clashes with more typical hierarchical corporate culture.  +Lisa Snow MacDonald you might enjoy it.

This looks interesting.

"The book argues that the most effective response to a growing addiction problem is a social and political one, rather than an individual one. Such a solution would not put the doctors, psychologists, social workers, policemen, and priests out of work, but it would incorporate their practices in a larger social project. The project is to reshape society with enough force and imagination to enable people to find social integration and meaning in everyday life. Then great numbers of them would not need to fill their inner void with addictions."

Dear friends, as you all know I'm working on the design of a course "Creative thinking" using thepeer2peer collaboration tools, right now I already dising week 0, which would require a review by one of you,
what do you think  to bring more changes or using other methodology?, for why and how?
. What matters most to me right now is to learn more about the techniques of collaborative work moments.
Here you hints link to the course and my mail, so who wants to collaborate has only to write and I will send you the password and user
Thank you.in advance
Cheers

Another vintage/unused abstract.

Escape from Peeragogy Island

The Definition: The Peeragogy project is a co-created virtual community for facilitating reflexive peer-defined and peer-produced outcomes. We’ve created an evolving narrative creed (the Peeragogy Handbook) using distributed platforms. The project coordinates and coalesces contributions from globally distributed members with diverse backgrounds.

The Problem: Traditional approaches to knowledge production and collaboration impose built-in constraints and limitations on possible community engagement (including oppositional practices) and on productivity/outputs.

The Solution: By contrast, peeragogy as a methodology for peer production and peer learning aims to support emergent collaborative structures that are responsive to the changing requirements of the virtual community of participants and the developing subject matter. This process is mediated by revisions to the Peeragogy Handbook and spin-off and “spun-in” collaborations.

Challenges Arising in Practice: Conflicts that arise are often rooted in differences in contributors’ style and differing perspectives. At the same time, this diversity of outlook and our shifting, polycentric leadership structure are part of what makes the project strong. Operating within an environment of mutual respect, we apply creative collaborative problem solving to develop transferable patterns and practices.

What’s Next: In order to balance priorities of “people,” “product,” and “process,” our vision for Year 3 of the Peeragogy Project is to:
Refine and articulate principles and practices for inclusion and adoption; Aggregate and curate case studies reflecting a diversity of contexts and outcomes; and, Establish a peer produced Peeragogy Accelerator as a resource for those seeking assistance with applying Peeragogy practices.

About this community

What does any group of peers, or self-learners, need to know in order to self-organize learning about any topic? The answers are in our Peeragogy Handbook (peeragogy.org) a volunteer-created and maintained resource that individuals can use to bootstrap peer learning and peer educational projects. "Peeragogy in Action" is devoted to improving the handbook -- and helping YOU develop and apply successful peer learning techniques.

Ran across this resource from the connected learning community. I know we have toyed with the idea of badges in the past, and our new colleague +Fred Mindlin​ brought it up in the Peeragogy in Action session yesterday. What are your thoughts?

Here's a link to a paper by my colleague +Anna Jordanous that she's presenting now at ICCC 2015, on "Measuring cultural value using social network analysis: a case study on valuing electronic musicians."

It's really interesting to see that musicians... emphasize valuing each others work; local connections (e.g. if you're in the same town as someone else you're more likely to like their stuff); don't necessarily worry about who is top rated because there are so many genres to get interested in...  People also have different ways of talking about the things they like.

It seems to me that measuring (or understanding) "cultural value" is important for us here too.

The "cynical" suggestion: If we want to make a successful "computer electronic musician", start up a London-based account, upload tracks, develop the system to interact with other music makers in similar genres.  Don’t work on the music, but make it able to interact other musicians using the right genre.  Follow people in key cities.

I'm visiting YouTube HQ today (http://www.businessinsider.com/youtube-offices-2013-10?op=1) and asked my host for some tips on how we could improve our YT profile.  Some ideas:

 - unobtrusive overlays on the "welcome video" https://youtu.be/TDRGJzoNbAc that allow people to click to Peeragogy.org or to subscribe to our channel -- and more clear instructions about what people can "do next" if they want to get involved.

- More clarity about what peeragogy actually is, i.e.

Peeragogy is a flexible framework of techniques for peer learning and peer knowledge production.

(That comment also applies for visitors to peeragogy.org -- with the new layout, it's not easy to see what's going on in one glance).

- Since Peeragogy is more of a "meta-level" toolkit than a set of specific resources for learning XYZ topics, it would be good to point more clearly to some more concrete toolkits for learning those topics.  So, for example, where can we find (or help build) a workable peeragogical toolkit for learning mathematics or Spanish or auto repair or creative thinking etc.?

 - more prominent mention of peeragogy.org from the channel page, e.g. in our "About" https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAQ5TpUxKrsVfWtIHMaDh5A/about

- a few videos with some responsibly-sourced clickbait ("Top Tips for Learning That Your Teacher Doesn't Want you to Know" etc.)

Hi +Julia Echeverria, interesting that you pinged me on this post, I had just been thinking about it in connection with the paper we're working on for PLoP.  Do our patterns (at peeragogy.org) offer a better way to say what we're talking about than the word "open"?  I think so.
 
I originally posted this to Posterous, which has now gone the way of Google Buzz and Google Reader.  Ideally it would be updated to give more consideration to the commons-based production that takes place within these Free as in Beer (and in some cases, Frie as in Alkoholfrie) systems.

+Helene Finidori this is another piece of material I plan to filter into my WOW5 work in progress.  Another older piece of input data is here:

 - http://wiki.planetmath.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl/Surveying_the_Math_Metacommons

+Raymond Puzio has some related notes here: http://wiki.planetmath.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl/Peak_Commons_Production  and he and I had an interesting, long conversation about this stuff today - in particular, about the idea of people moving away from forums and wikis, to blogs and social media -- compare http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-739/paper_7.pdf
by +Mayo Fuster Morell.

I suggested that rather than just critique free/open source licenses "on their own terms" as Ray and +Aaron Krowne did in First Monday, http://firstmonday.org/ojs/index.php/fm/article/view/1368/1287 we also need to critique them in terms of their general insufficiency for free culture.  In brief, we need a better understanding of the extra-legal mechanisms for creative, adaptive cultural development -- and we need to understand more about when and why that is "shared".

Ray pointed out that of the three examples I talk about in my WOW abstract (PlanetMath, FKI, and Peeragogy), only PlanetMath has ever had to do significant custom software development.  In more recent years, although we have continued to put a lot of energy into software, we've moved to a more "common" platform, Drupal.  I think Drupal is a good example of a software-oriented metacommons.

Another random factoid to bring into the mix is that more bots edit Wikipedia than humans: https://www.mail-archive.com/wiki-research-l@lists.wikimedia.org/msg02809.html; see also http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18892510  - Our creativity commons should take this account.

Unknown, but there are a lot of women in the picture.  And there are also plenty (I don't have hard numbers on this) of "Trekkies" of all genders...
