Intertwining content and people

I am looking at how these types of tools can connect people who are passionate and then connect that into the what of what they are passionate about. It is a dance that is just being coreographed on the web. So much yet to learn and this is one more place to do it.

Ten People -- So Fast

I have to say, there is something a bit thrilling to find 10 people who have added this to their things. Cool!

Brainstorming

It strikes me that this could be a kind of power-wiki for helping people work on social change goals.

For example I’ve added a couple of political goals to my 43 things: ban SUVs in cities and help create a national daycare program. If other people sign up for the same goals, maybe that’s a first step towards working together towards that goal. Or maybe advocacy groups could use people’s goal lists to identify potential supporters. (Arianna Huffington, I’m waiting for your call.)

One of the things that worries me about the progressive universe is the trend away from collective goals (like changing public policies) and towards individual goals (like being a more conscious consumer—that’s on my list, too). We need to think about possibilities for convergence between personal and collective goals, even if it’s a matter of working on our personal goals together. Hmm…can anyone think of a tool that would do that?

Go team!

Howdy! I’m currently in a Timothy’s at Davisville and Yonge, getting ready for a meeting (hence surfing the net)...

I’m looking forward to checking this out and trying not to get anxious about all the things I could be doing…

Nice to be connected with you all!
