OGM Engagement Proposal for Lionsberg
Open Global Mind, currently a community of practice, seeks to become a platform for tktk.
In one sentence: Helping humans make better decisions together.
Alternative: Navigating humbly in community toward truth.
Alternative: Helping humans coalesce into effective sovereign entities, individually and collectively.
OGM aims to spark collective intelligence by offering meta value:
We envision the following five layers for OGM to build out:
All of these have our shared vision and culture woven through them.
To nurture the building of a shared collective sensemaking infrastructure. Prototype, model and share it out. Find relevant open source software, test and integrate it. Reach out to the developers.
How do we help groups move forward into a shared understanding.
Preference for open source software
Preference for distributed tools
Separate out the data layer
Each of the layers is also infrastructure.
In order to become more useful in its mission, OGM needs visible organization, values and methods. It also needs a legal structure, and people willing to occupy roles with responsibility for the whole.
List of 6 other orgs, approach them, report on how it went, post-mortem (some friendlies, some not)
Or, list of known orgs to approach, plus deliverable of identifying X number of unknown orgs as well
a commitment to work on governance
a plan for same
The “mother” of OGM’s knowledge web is Jerry’s Brain, but it is just the start. Federation of mothers. Federation of peers.
Business models for those services. What services? What values do they have to uphold?
Metrics of trust. Stakeholders…. Edelman Trust. Glassdoor. Yelp. Brands as proxy for trust.
Upward spiral. “I’ll have what she’s having.” Modeling.
TECH / INFRASTRUCTURE LAYER:
Outreach group / method / process - going to Rome research community… distributed web people… and out to facilitation communities… Looping in a variety of communities…
Not - building a platform that everyone will use.
But - bringing together into something interoperable and useful.
Hosting convos that lead us to designing experiments, writing code (massive Wiki - separating out data so it looks like wiki to wiki engine, but PowerPoint to PowerPoint engine.
How do we navigate towards Truth in community[b]…. And then understand the right wise thing to DO in light of what we have come to know.
We have lost control of the ability to dialogue and navigate towards truth…
This effort has been co-opted corporations and political instructions - we are at risk of existing in ideological filter bubbles that will increasingly keep us separated and enslaved.
Platform and protocol for navigating towards Truth for the wellbeing of All…
Governance of collective information / knowledge / wisdom / associated infrastructure… [c]
Mining and Organization of Knowledge… As the meta project dialogue unfolds - the mining and organization of collective plans and knowledge in the commons… that can be transparently seen, interacted with, improved by the global community… Charles - the mining and organization of the knowledge that emerges from facilitated conversations…
Mining and weaving… establishing norms and processes for getting to shared understanding… how we deal with convo, tag it up, link to context it, enrich it…
Facilitating, convening, consulting (Service Layer)
Modeling and Contagion - (wraps in the speeches and consulting etc.) Being out in public, using it, and doing it. What it is like, what it feels like
A precursor to Trust is (the ability / process to humbly navigate towards Truth in community… antidote to Ideology… bottom up citizen science…)
Problem with Wikipedia - single canonical page… behind the scenes - haggling about canonical way…
Huge chunk - that is deep listening and respecting one another… Listening with respect. Being present, offering dignity, presenting peace and facilitating peace - navigating together is more important than truth part…
Knowing what is not - dissolving the negative rather than painting the positive…
Negative - what is not… Dissolving what isn’t and what is keeping us apart…
Guilds within OGM - mapped to craft, durable, bringing in new, training apprentice to journeyman to master, and responsible for improving the trade and making it broadly useful and accessible… not guild secrets…
How do guilds bubble up into the meta - and work as openly as possible - so they bubble up outside and are available to … bias towards openly… working wikily…
could employ people of various guilds…
Quests - time bounded important and interesting projects.
Top 3 objections
Contradictory - why are you describing businesses we would start up, vs. infrastructure and other stuff.
Commons - platform, the ideas, the knowledge, the governance… Open Source Space…
Contagion Layer -
If businesses - half of this should be marketing…
OGM is moving towards building something that is not represented here…
Actually and literally attempting to make a wise open global mind…
Brain and neural network for humanity…
[a]I have no idea what this means. What kind of infrastructure?
[b]this is so vague that it loses meaning.
[c]This is so broad that I could not possibly tell anyone else what OGM was working on.
