My Projects

CROPPED -

Here are the major projects I’m working on. Most of them relate in some way to proximity thinking, although that may not be obvious at first. Together, they are my attempt at creating sustainable variety in my life, and promoting and enabling sustainable variety for other people as well. It’s a bit of an experiment!

ProxThink (main ProxThink site)
ProxThink is a proximity-focused framework for creativity, innovation, problem-solving, sustainability and living. The proximity thinking framework mainly consists of three integrated parts: The Basics help us describe and discuss situations. The ProxPatterns are especially helpful for creativity, innovation and problem-solving. The Growth Model boosts collaboration and encourages growth for people who share a proximity. More here …

Shared Situation Guide and Shared Situations Site
Shared situations can improve and become more lively when people can relate to the proximity of their shared situation. The Shared Situation Guide helps groups do that in mobile, networked ways. This may assist any group with a shared situation, from friends and associates, to neighborhoods and communities, and even to regions and beyond. The shared situations site has links to begin using the guide, provides starter sets for some common situations, points to workshops for learning the guide, and helps people find and collaborate with others using the guide for shared situations. More here …

Variety People
Variety is the quality or state of being different or diverse; the absence of uniformity, sameness, or monotony. Variety people are people who value, allow, seek and manage variety in their lives. VarietyPeople.org aims to encourage variety and help variety people manage the dance between variety and stability. It’s a largely user-generated place to connect and share experiences, resources, ideas, events, articles, questions and ways of managing variety. In the process, perhaps we can become happier, healthier and more sustainable. And we might get what you could call some sustainable variety. More here …
