Open web, newcomers and community tools


I guess it had to do not only with the state of things on the web but also with my own processes of learning in other spaces and building up enough energy to rejoin in the open. And there are more people who come back home to what they have known before “the silos Siren’s lured us in” as Ton Zijlstra eloquently writes : Returning to the open web is in that sense not a difficult step to make. When was the last time you helped someone get started on the open web?

Unschooling myself: traces through time


About the challenges of staying open and having an environment build on trust and knowledge of each other. 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.

Differences are real; divisiveness is a choice

Chris Corrigan

These differences are essential to living and working in complexity, because a homogeneous view of a situation leaves you open to crises hitting you unawares. When this happens a kind of vacuum opens up between people and that gap is the thing that populists exploit.

Walking away from facebook

Chris Corrigan

When commenting began, discussion started to remain in a limited number of places but it was all open in the public and available to anyone. Comment spam really killed open discussion and maintain spam free comments sections is time-consuming.

Stuck, (un)schooling and social, writing


Robert and Alexander are doing rounds of open days in secondary schools around us (yes, all options are open, as it was from the beginning :)) Our homeschooling group is meeting tomorrow to discuss new format of meetings after things went out of order last year.

“But what if our people dominate?”

Chris Corrigan

Use a process like Open Space or World Cafe that allows participants to set their own agendas. Have truly open questions. The questions need to be open and honest, and the group you assemble needs to be the people best suited to explore the question and create actions around it. Beyond that, truly open questions make it easy to encourage people to listen to one another and they de-centre expertise, meaning that the group itself can truly become the experts.

“But what about naysayers?”

Chris Corrigan

Does the door open in or out? Perhaps I need to curate a series of posts called “The Whatabout Chronicles.” ” When I’m teaching participatory leadership or sharing complexity tools, folks who are wedded to traditional linear mind and tool sets often raise objections. “Complexity would be nice, but we haven’t got the time. We have to get this problem solved now, and we need a plan to do it.”

A decade of living and learning, hosting and harvesting

Chris Corrigan

Chris and Herb were (and still are) both enamoured with Open Space Technology and were wondering how we could use it for various organizing around Aboriginial rights and title. I have worked with people from various communities of practice, including Open Space, World Cafe, Genuine Contact and most deeply, the Art of Hosting.
