Finding Human Space

Evolving Web

The world is filled with different people. Wonderful people. Interesting people. I have sat on hilltops in Capetown, drinking wine and eating kudu carpaccio. I’ve felt the random rush of people, all moving on different missions, in Shinjuku.

Jenny Connected

I have been puzzling over George Siemens ’ idea that learners need to develop ‘being skills’ if they are to cope with what it means to be human in a digital age.

Dean Walker Interviews Dave on Collapse, Grief & Non-Duality

How to Save the World

This is a long (55min) and very indulgent interview that Dean did with me last week. He asks great questions, and lets me ramble on (perhaps a bit too much). It’s probably the closest to the real “me” that’s ever been recorded. Thanks so much Dean!

Sightedness: What Can You See?

Michael Sampson - Currents

A friend invites you to a party on Saturday night. You get yourself ready and turn up at the appointed time, entering a brightly lit, resplendently decorated party hall filled with people chatting in small groups while an orchestra plays a selection of the best classical music. As you enter the room, what do you observe? What do you see? I think that you see what you’ve been trained to see.
