      Subject: [learningfromeachother] Our work this week and beyond for Mornflake

      > Leon Benjamin, Stuart Oliver and I spoke on Tuesday about Minciu Sodas's
      > work to engage online communities for Mornflake cereal
      > http://www.mornflake.com and their online video competition
      > http://www.mornflakecompetition.com
      > Leon is very happy with our approach in our outreach that we are building
      > bridges by engaging people to help each other and promote each other, and
      > acknowledging Mornflake's support for this, rather than promoting
      > Mornflake directly.
      > Sasha Mrkailo and Jeremy Mason are engaging UK online communities; Thomas
      > Chepaitis and Masimba Biriwasha are still getting the hang of it; and I'm
      > also training Fred Kayiwa, Dennis Kimambo and I want to train Markus Petz,
      > Edward Cherlin, Kennedy Owino, William Wambura, Josephat Ndibalema and
      > others who might help.
      > We should work steadily so that we've completed our deliverables, which is
      > to engage 100 online communities. See:

      > http://www.worknets.org/software/ukocselect.php
      > Leon is interested that we continue further after that until the middle of
      > July. He will let me know what budget he might have and we can then plan
      > accordingly.
      > Joanne Jacobs, thank you for starting us off with very clear and smart
      > instructions, for working openly with us, and for helping untangle us from
      > the contradictions in our ability to help with the contest's various
      > goals. Leon told me that at this point, we're working quite
      > independently. So it's important for us to keep good notes at our wiki

      > should reply further.
      > Our team's overall function now is to:
      > A) Engage online community members in positive ways that build bridges,
      > advance and promote members' endeavors, help us all work together -
      > remembering to acknowledge Mornflake cereal http://www.mornflake.com and
      > their online video competition http://www.mornflakecompetition.com - with
      > the hope that others will want to share this acknowledgement as well.
      > This is a long term investment for Mornflake and everybody.
      > B) Observe where there are "sparks" of response and encourage that further
      > in positive ways. We're investigating how to encourage constructive
      > response. That might include an "avalanche" of attention. But more
      > helpful would be a "controlled nuclear reaction" or simply a "campfire"
      > where, like in any good discussion group, there is a a lot of good
      > response for not much effort, and even better, if we could have energy
      > dancing across a network of campfires, which is our real goal. That
      > dancing energy could then carry messages (like Mornflake's rebranding) and
      > others who help fuel our campfires (with money, resources, ideas,
      > endeavors, humor, love, etc.)
      > My first priority is to train us, and I also look to Sasha Mrkailo and
      > others to help train our team.
      > I also am building tools that would support our outreach. These include:
      > * A "stream" of comments and replies that we could attach to any kind of
      > content at our lab (like an archived letter, wiki page, chat archive, web
      > page we find, food story) so that we'd pay attention to comments that
      > people leave us, but we could also leave comments for ourselves, and take
      > action and respond, and then note our response accordingly. This will be
      > a very lightweight project management system. I want to do this very much
      > and then have it work at our lab's pages and My Food Story's pages as the
      > way we organize our work. Likely I'll build this as part of our
      > "hyperwiki" technology.
      > * I want to aggregate incoming content tagged with "mornflake",
      > "myfoodstory", "minciusodas" which may be at blogs, Flickr, YouTube,
      > Facebook and other sites. And display that at our sites, and have it
      > enter our content stream, too. In particular, we can then encourage
      > people in the UK to use the "mornflake" tag as a call for help on any of
      > their projects and we'll try to respond.
      > * Find a useful way to work with Twitter through our websites. Integrate
      > that with our chat room. And figure out how to make good use of the
      > Mornflake twitters.
      > * Make a diagram of the responsive UK online communities and how we might
      > build bridges between them.
      > * Other technologies?
      > I appreciate our thoughts!
      > Leon, thank you for this work!
