Thursday chat with Suresh and Andrius about Pooled Fund Initiative
- I invite all who are interested to chat about the future of Minciu Sodas
http://www.ms.lt to come to our chat room http://www.worknets.org/chat/
tomorrow, Thursday, January 14, 2010, starting 9:00 Vancouver, 12:00 New
York, 17:00 London, 20:00 Nairobi.
We'll be chatting specifically with Suresh Fernando about Open Kollab
http://wiki.openkollab.com http://groups.google.com/group/openkollab and
the Pooled Fund Initiative
Suresh Fernando has experience in the financial world and has also
thought a lot about life, philosophy, society, morality, economics and
business. He's currently devoting himself to the Pooled Fund Initiative,
which I think of as a 2,000,000 USD credit line shared by an ecosystem
of openly collaborative enterprises. He's working closely with Michel
Bauwens http://www.p2pfoundation.net, Sam Rose http://forwardfound.org,
Steve Bosserman and many others. They are starting to map out an
ecosystem of open manufacturers.
I will be writing soon, hopefully before the chat, about my own vision
for Minciu Sodas this coming year. I look forward to all of our visions
and dreams. Certainly, I look forward to working closely with Suresh to
map out ecosystems - probably those more related to nonphysical culture
- to look for clients and to think especially about the ethics, the
morality of our new culture and how to base our new education system on
communicating that morality as the foundation for all of our "caring
Please join us! and we're interested to expand and include your
endeavors, perhaps as candidates for the Pooled Fund Initiative.
I also alert us to my case study
http://www.worknets.org/wiki.cgi?MornflakeOutreach of our work last
summer for Leon Benjamin http://www.winningbysharing.net and the London
advertising agency The Law Firm Group on behalf of Mornflake cereal
http://www.mornflake.com and their online video contest
http://www.mornflakecompetition.net This is a practical example of
how and why we organize global teams of independent thinkers, in this
case for paid work from the corporate world. My main observation is
that corporate culture has businesses be reliable but not authentic, and
human culture has humans be authentic but not reliable. We can have
them work together - stay authentic but achieve reliability - if we
build in all kinds of redundancy as we organize people. This may be
helpful as we organize our ecosystems.

Thank you so much for this. [
http://www.worknets.org/wiki.cgi?MornflakeOutreach ]. Interestingly I'm
in Hong Kong later this week to present to regional CIOs and a Hotel
Group on the use/benefits of social media and will be speaking about
your work and the form and function of MS Labs - more on this soon.
I'll read the case study and get back to you with my comments over the
next few days.
