Carrot Cake

Jenny Connected

When I was eight years old I was sent to boarding school, a bit of a traumatic experience for any young child. One of the better memories of this four year experience was that each and every child in the school was given a small allotment plot in which we could grow whatever we wished.

Meet Beau, a reflection chatbot

Joitske Hulsebosch

Talking to a text chatbot instead of a person, and typing instead of talking often helps the reflection process. I have learned and read a lot about the design process, including experiences and got training with IBM Watson. Working in a small group to design a blended training I felt very annoyed. I had the feeling we were investing too much energy in defining the goals and was worried that the team was not going in the right direction.

Unschooling myself: traces through time

Mathemagenic

Something I find amazing every time I experience it – how unschooling as an educational choice for the kids turns to be a personal learning trajectory for us, as parents. Some of this stuff is pretty personal and I write about it in friends-only LJ, but there are enough “tips of the iceberg” visible here as well.

Open web, newcomers and community tools

Mathemagenic

One of the things that FB does well is an easy way to switch between person-centric profiles that help networking to semi-closed and closed spaces for a community forming and even getting things done (despite all odds :)). Over last years I made many attempts to return to blogging, but couldn’t quite get the feeling of how it was before. That feeling of belonging. To the idea space.

Capacity building and scaling a participatory approach

Chris Corrigan

The basis of that program is a leadership approach that is very similar and deeply informed by what we in the Art of Hosting community know as the four-fold practice: that great leadership is personal, practice-based, participatory and perceptive. And no one person or team can do it alone.

Curious About Radical Non-Duality But Hate Videos?

How to Save the World

T he essential message of radical non-duality, as opposed to more historical types of non-duality, is that there is no ‘you’ — no separate person or thing, no self, no ‘awareness’ or ‘consciousness’ or ‘enlightenment’ or liberation, no self-control or choice or volition or agency or responsibility, no time or space, no life or death, no path or process to get closer to the ‘truth’, no knowledge or experience, no meaning or purpose.
