# Provide a space of
visibility of people, their actions, their thoughts, their connections #
Interface to the world: showcase, bookstore, video, images, text repository #
Direct communication: chat, video, mashups, webinars, TV # Rapid thinking
tools: outliner, mindmaps, etc. # Data collection: merged with contextual
information (Metadata concept) # condensation tool (classical wiki) #
automate tasks (buttons and scripts) # design languages (build open source
tractor, etc.) for collaboration # mapping geo information
I think the
best way to meet them is: content stream * to pull together RSS feeds from
blogs, wikis, discussion groups that relate to global villages * to
highlight the posts that are especially profound (such as from Marcin's
blog) * participants could "recognize" global villagers who we'd draw
attention to, including their content streams from Flickr, YouTube,
FaceBook, Twitter * link to the posts and villagers and also encourage
comments about them at our website * deliver the comments to the global
villagers as they prefer
online learning materials based on a pattern
language of deep ideas and problems that illustrate them * culling
examples and life wisdom from the content stream * inviting popular or active
global villagers to be active at our Ning website * working on team
projects at our Ning website * condensing and presenting wisdom at our wiki
in the form of learning materials * lots of work on our ProWiki to make
the metadata convenient to edit and to allow participation by users of
navigating materials based on geographic
location vs. global village theme * showing learning paths * local
villages become sources of information that are relevant locally and
globally * mapping geographic information
organizing a gradient from
TV to active participation
So this leads in strongly to our work on open
I invite us to recommend RSS feeds that we'd like to
include in our content stream.
Gleb Turin has agreed to
participate at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/minciu_sodas_BY/ I
will sign him up. He asked for help to further discuss his and
Franz's global village ideas which the governor of Archangelsk and the
president of Kyrgystan received with interest. I ask our Lithuanian
participants to foster this discussion. Our thought is that this group
become a working group in Russian led by Gleb Turin.
I spoke with
Pamela McLean about our London meeting. We'll organize a two hour
meeting around her question: How is the Internet enabling new patterns of
collaboration which are enabling new things to be learned and done in ways
that were never possible? This will lead into further discussions of the
Worknets charter and of Public Domain learning materials.
when are you free to talk? I look forward to talking with you!
