Bringing a festival mindset to conferences

Viv Mcwaters

Why do gamification / improvisation / creativity conferences and events, mostly, not use the principles they espouse for others in their own event design? It seemed to me that a talk, as good as it might be, followed by Q and A, is a push model. The other growth area is festivals.

“Designing Social Cities of Tomorrow” workshop – presentation notes

Making CommunitySense

Prior to this conference, a three-day “Designing Social Cities of Tomorrow” workshop was held in which international participants from various professional backgrounds collaborated with local stakeholder organisations on 4 real-world urban cases : Urban Pioneers Zeeburgereiland (Amsterdam), Haagse Havens (The Hague), Strijp-S (Eindhoven), and Amsterdam Civic Innovator Network. Social cities: it’s not about a blueprint, but a design approach.

An Idea Worth Spreading: The Future is Networks « emergent by design

John Tropea - Delicious Network

emergent by design Home who’s the architect? It seems like the wealth of the entire nation is being funneled right to a couple thousand fortunate people, and all of us are still working pretty damn hard to make ends meet, yet ultimately supporting that model. It doesn’t have to be professionally designed, it can be a simple free blog, but you need to have a place where you show off your work, whatever your work may be.

Beat the Conference Blahs

Partnering Resources

Too many conferences suffer from the assumption that the best way to use people’s time is to subject them to elaborately designed presentations. When we link our own experiences and situations to a best practice, idea, or model, that information becomes more real and relevant.

Is your event worth the price of the ticket?

Social Reporter

I took four event types and mapped them in to a simple model along dimensions of open-closed, and directed-collaborative. There’s other ways of modelling the differences. Design and social reporting issues. The model above shows four typical types of event.

Cetis 2013 Keynote - Digital Citizenship: Underpinning Open Education

The young people involved are a mix of ages and experience - some had never coded before, most hadn't been through the kind of rapid scoping, design, development and pitch process.

More collaboration

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

And it prompts me to wonder if James Rs model is actually more of a maturity profile around the management of collaboration tools than about tool adoption per se. My experience, though, is that we need to "capture the high ground" in these models, explicitly including the longer-term vision. Without this, these models are too quickly ignored when a "sexier" approach comes along.

Collaboration tools

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

As ever, James is practical & clear in his thinking and suggests a 5 phase model (0-4) for organisations thinking about collaboration. These rich networks will almost certainly be a federated model. And I wholly agree that the model looks too static, at all levels and phases of the progress. Engineers without Fears Tuesday, September 11, 2007 Collaboration tools James Robertson has been thinking about collaboration tools. Which is interesting because I have as well.

Some sites are designed with specific ethnic, religious, sexual orientation, political, or other identity-driven categories in mind. It was designed to compete with Match.com, a profitable online dating site (Cohen, 2003).
