  • collective intelligence
    • Klaus: vs. consciuousness (Jan Smuts)

Pete's Reflections on Using Mmhmm for Call

  • was hampered by sharing one window instead whole screen (didn't want zoom video feedback, so didn't share whole screen)
  • hackmd on one page is nice, but doesn't show other wiki pages
  • it made raising hand and doing jazz hands more challenging
  • i had to turn off video mirroring, which i low-key don't like :-)
  • on my computer at least, it looks like there is a small video lag for my picture
  • not sure how good the resolution of the screenshare was




  • measuring collective intelligence
    • gil: why / would measuring it increase it?
      • how do funders deal with measurement
    • julian: make
  • the opposite of collective intelligence is groupthink


  • dendritic stuff
  • collecting success stories
    • equally effective with funders
  • keep assessment "under the radar" so people don't freeze


  • limitations of measurement compared to stories


  • moderators on clubhouse
    • wokeness vs. free speech


  • collective intelligence is a myth
    • varying degrees of intellectual efficacy / efficiency
    • we invented a lot of kinds of "intelligence"
    • vs. mind skills mastering a cluster of mental skills
      • have just done more practice than other people
  • next big thing: Spaces by Twitter
  • audio is sometimes better than video
    • inventor of the telephone focus group
    • "radio is better than television because the pictures are better"
    • jerry: audio carries ~80% of the emotional valence
    • "audio gestures" - body language


  • syntropic world - https://syntropic.world/masterclass/
  • FairShare Commons
  • gratitudes:
    • jay golden
    • scott moehring
    • ken homer



  • value creation processes, on knowledge, natural resources, for a couple tribes/nations in Brazil


  • Jim Fournier


  • thinking and working in sectors, rather than thinking of system
  • consciousness (vs. collective intelligence)
    • are animals conscious? plants? is there an overarching consciousness


  • side channel conversations (missing in clubhouse)
  • droping the word "nature" (natural resources, natural capital)
    • (from pete, tweet about dropping the word "women's" from sports, or having to add "men's", either way)

Stuff to Look Up

  • (pete) saw a twitter thread about "intelligence" in humans, that it's fractal and includes your whole body, not just your brain.
