Do you know of anyone else who has …

I realize the question you’ll read below is somewhat silly, since it would be hard to find anyone like you either if you put together a long, specific list about yourself and asked if people knew anyone else who had the same list as you. But weirdly, I hope you’ll see that posing the question as I have below seems to focus attention better than just listing what I’ve created and done. And I hope you’ll see that perhaps the diverse parts of what I’ve created and integrated might add up to more than the sum of the parts, and are perhaps significant and worth your further explorations. So, here comes perhaps the longest sentence you’ve read, or at least of one the longest.

To help other people and themselves feel and be more alive, pursue possibilities, meet challenges and avoid problems, do you know of anyone else (besides me) who has created an elegant philosophical framework that also relates to mathematics, engineering, business, design, the arts and the sciences, and linked it with an integrated set of patterns for creativity, problem-solving and innovation that they also created, and then linked both of those with an integrated set of rewards processes they created that can augment and/or replace some processes of markets, governments, nonprofits and more as well as create new possibilities for collaboration in our connected world, and then linked all of that with our current state of technology and networks, as well as proposed using all of this to meet some of humanity’s ordinary and tough challenges like climate change, sustainability and quality of life, and made some first attempts to implement all of this in several domains and share it with various groups of people? In this question, I’m referring to my proximity thinking framework and my projects related to it, introduced on the home page of loughry.com.

If you do know of anyone else who has done the above, or even a good chunk of it, please let me know. If you know someone who might know of anyone else like that, please share this post with them, and ask them to let me know.

Thank you!

Video Intro to the Shared Situation Guide

Here’s a brief video intro to one of my new projects, the Shared Situation Guide. It shows you how to access and start using the guide on your desktop and/or mobile. Your shared situation can be whatever your group is dealing with or considering. You can learn and use it on your own right now if you like, but stay tuned for upcoming online workshops for learning to use the guide!

My First ProxThink Hangout On Air Session is Tomorrow

I’m doing a public online Let’s ProxThink session this Sunday, May 18, from 5:00 – 6:30 pm PST. It’s a live Google+ Hangout On Air. It could be the freshest one I’ll ever do, and/or it could be a train wreck! Later, part or all of it may go on the ProxThink YouTube Channel. You can find out more at lets.proxthink.com.

Here’s a 15 second video promo I recently made! Thanks!

Human Constraints

(r] davidloughry.com

These seem to be two constraints humans face:

  • We’re constrained in one way by the reality that to get much done, we need to collaborate with other people.
  • We’re constrained in another way by the limits of groups of people to collaborate, both among themselves and with other groups.

It’s a persistent dynamic tension and a kind of ecosystem. It’s amazing how much those two constraints relate to: a diversity of emotions, a diversity of social groups and forms, a diversity of technologies, a diversity of businesses, a diversity of people.

Proxri Deal: As you find our relationship rewarding, proxri with the proximity in mind.
