Viv Mcwaters

Belina hosts Sustainable Stand-Up courses around the world – ‘helping important ideas become human, engaging, and deeply funny’. I’d spoken with my friend Izzy Gesell – someone who has written books on humour – and his advice was to notice stuff.

Mathemagenic

The Second Act: Community Guy Rises

Community Guy

But I’m the guy who loves online community and has spent the better part of my career trying to bring community engagement to life in the most impactful, world changing ways possible. I’d worked my ass off to be a small part of helping the idea of online engagement, social media, and community building take root in the world since the mid-90s.

True Story

How to Save the World

With friends we tell stories about what apparently happened, what we thought, how we felt, to use them as a sounding board for making sense of what happened, to fit it into our Story of Me. Cartoon from poorlydrawnlines. Tell me the true story, about the time when that man.

Designing nesting thresholds

Chris Corrigan

My friend Christie Diamond once said “the conversation begins long before the meeting starts, and continues long after the meeting is over.” Engage with the call, connect it to my own needs. Making time and space to engage (committing my resources).

Walking away from facebook

Chris Corrigan

Facebook in engaged in undermining democracy and articles I was reading in 2018 pointed to their intentional and unintentional aiding and abetting behaviour with respect to the elections and democratic engagement.
