Social Reporter

A few weeks back I posted a piece over here about the Big Lottery-funded Village SOS programme , which supports some exciting and ambitious local projects, plus local web sites, all linked to a forthcoming BBC series. I wondered if this was a bad omen for the Your Square Mile programme, using a similar approach, also funded by BIG to the tune of £830,000: most recent YSM news here.

How to Save the World

Evolution, which is tautological (it occurs because it works) tries a million random different things every second and those that don’t die produce what we call evolution. The problem I have with this is the evident fact that most Americans want the American Dream, not a different way of life.

Collaboration vs. C-Three (Cooperation, Coordination, and Communication)

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Each term is different and each has not only strengths but also limitations. Indeed, many kinds of agreement, actually mask the different perceptions that full communication would uncover. Coordination, like communication, begins with an assumption of differences. Different persons, different units, different units create overlap, redundancy and/or separation without coordination. Historically, collaborations involve major differences in perspective.
