What your suggesting is not creation but unfolding what already exists, it’s all there we just can’t see it yet, and to see it we must align ourselves, instead of crossing paths My research has shown that this system is an inductive thinking one which states that any obsevation becomes tentative hypothesis once patterns emerge to base a solid theory.

emergent by design Home who’s the architect? OK, we went from telegraph to radio to phone to TV to cell phone to computer to smartphone within about a hundred years, but that feels like it happened at a pretty natural pace, because we’ve lived in it as it happened, and we experience time on a linear scale. Different versions emerged all over the world, but they all had something in common: There was a scarcity of resources, and so the systems were competition-based.

“But what about naysayers?”

Chris Corrigan

” When I’m teaching participatory leadership or sharing complexity tools, folks who are wedded to traditional linear mind and tool sets often raise objections. ” It’s a hard one because often it’s obvious that the problem is complex and the desire for a linear solution, while urgent-feeling, is just not possible. Disagreement between experts can help you solve the problem better, but don’t pretend you know enough to challenge an expert.

Working with principles: some thoughts and an exercise

Patterns are the emergent results of repeated interactions between actors around attractors and within boundaries. To make change in a complex system therefore, we are looking to shift interactions between people and parts of a system to create a beneficial shift in the emergent patterns.

Learning facilitation

Viv Mcwaters

This is what facilitators do when with a group… Challenge habitual thinking and behaviour. Clarifying, questioning, sometimes challenging and summarising. Problem is, learning is not linear. In other words, learning, and meaning, emerges. While learning is non-linear, the training is. Warning: This post will be quite rambling as I’m using it to clarify my own thinking.

Complexity and critical literacies

Jenny Connected

My understanding is that a complex system is one in which you cannot predict what is going to happen and just that over-simplified one statement presents huge challenges for our education system (UK), which seems to want to prescribe and measure everything in sight. Any teacher will know the challenges that these ideas present, just as anyone who took part in CCK08 might also recognise these as characteristics of a complex system.

It is often associated with the consumer space where ICQ and AIM emerged as very popular tools that brought presence into the mainstream. Jabber emerged and made XMPP popular which has its own presence capability (2000-ish). "Aggregated presence” also emerged – other devices could be probed to influence your presence status. Ideally, it would be easier in the enterprise but my sense is it will face the same challenges.

The practice emerges from the classic skills of offline facilitation, but adds the elements of the technical practices using online interaction software, along with the complicating factors of distributed interaction where we cannot rely on accustomed offline communication elements of body language, tone and the affects of being in the same space at the same time.

Thinking about the Big Shift and the Social Enterprise – confused of calcutta

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

I think I can see, with some clarity, the emergence of institutional innovation across the customer base; the construction of creation spaces; and the gentle growth of collaboration curves based on increasing-returns models. In networks they rise at a linear rate versus an exponential rate of revenue. Another challenge would be the beneficiaries of not-so-social-enterprises (that is enterprises of hierarchial structure) would not be so happy to see a social enterprise emerging.

The scene paints a world where access to knowledge is privileged, access to mentors and inside information key, and getting in on the inside of the next big thing a one-time stroke of luck on which an entire successful—and linear—future could be built. The community versions of these kinds of classrooms emerge around a particular topic or perspective and grow and adapt along non-institutional lines. The problem, however, is that these are emergent communities.
