Networked City development

Social Reporter

I’m currently writing for a new Networked City blog which complements our NWC wiki and NWC forum. Networked City is a loose framework within which people, projects and organisations can learn how to use mapping, network building, data and technology for community and social benefit. We are developing a network and communities of practice. Recent posts at Networked City. Smarter London Together starts on the road to people-first design. Can it also lead to strong civil society?

Michael Sampson - Currents

We hosted a party last night, for our second son who turned 21. It’s was a great celebration of life and living, and we enjoyed seeing family and friends share the dancing, food, fun and speeches of the night. We hired a local hall we’ve never hired before.

Michael Sampson - Currents

We held a push-up competition several years ago at my house. Some of my sons could easily do 20 push-ups, but one in particular couldn’t do any (he was … 7?). “Dad, I can’t even do one” he said to me.

Who Switched the Drawers?

Michael Sampson - Currents

I have 21 drawers by my office desk. These hold stationery, paper, books to read, pens and pencils, pocket knifes, old thumbdrives, book manuscripts, keys, cables, in-progress projects, client-specific items, old journals I haven’t scanned yet, charging adapters, and much more.

A Better Word Than Change?

Michael Sampson - Currents

Change. Doing something different. Learning. Mastering a new area. Building new knowledge and skills. Progress. Moving forward. Usually has the sense of an envisioned destination towards which the movement is being made. Improve. Become better. Better. More desirable, satisfactory, or effective.

Marijn Somers on Change (and Progress) with Office 365

Michael Sampson - Currents

Earlier in the week I suggested we should use a different word instead of change. Marijn commented about his slide deck above, presented at SharePoint Saturday in Cambridge in September 2017. Read the whole deck, but I’m making an especial call out re Marijn’s argument around “progress” instead of “change” on slides 26-29. P.S. Slide 13 made me laugh out loud.
