- Potential results from the basecamp of Sept. 1-2.

Here are some suggestions for results from the basecamp of Sept. 1-2.

(I call it a "basecamp" because, from my perspective, we are on a
learning expedition into "awakening the flowers to the meadow.")

Of course, it's unlikely that we can meet all or even most of them but i trust we can figure out our priorities for today, together.)

- a high-level Roadmap (version 0.1) outlining the major milestones
between now and January 14-18,2006

- the outline of our shared learning agenda, including
- a small set of CI pratcices we want to jointly pursue
- our Question basket 0.1
- minimalist CI taxonomy
- a new map of what is moving on the field

- exploring how the development and maintainance of our enabling
technology infrastructure can become a shared responsibility

- shared clarity about the nature and lavel of commitment required
for membership in the core group

embodied practice of shared reflection, lessons learned

The unity of external and internal purpose

Tom wrote:

The purpose of our coming gathering Sept 1 is plan how to convene -- before the end of 2006 -- diverse scholars, practitioners, advocates, and others involved in the emerging field of collective intelligence and wisdom (CI/W, broadly defined).

The purpose of that conference (and subsequent similar gatherings) is to enable these leaders to discover each other's work and produce together common (or synergistic) understandings of the full spectrum of CI/W dynamics and possibilities -- including especially their/our realization of the movement they/we comprise -- and to create common projects together.

If we agree on the above as the purpose of the conference we want to convene (as I suggest we do), then what would it take to do a good job at enabling those leaders, including ourselves, to discover each other's work and produce together common (or synergistic) understandings of the full spectrum of CI/W dynamics and possibilities -- including especially their/our realization of the movement they/we comprise?

Since Tom has published in the Blog of CI his mini-essays on the forms, levels/realms, and fields of collective intelligence, I knew that it will take more than my mind alone to envision the full potential of the unfolding spectrum of CI/W dynamics and possibilities that he is sensing. Hence my questions:

Why and how to nourish our taxonomy

A taxonomy is an ordered collection of mental models that members of a community or organization use to describe the essential concepts or events of their shared domain of study or action. It can be an important vehicle or detractor of collective intelligence, depending on how skillfully it is designed and maintained. That is the main reason why I've been studying taxonomy issues for 18 years.
