Ode to ELL and my Backlog

in Emerging Leader Labs, Gift Economies, Media, Social Change

Crap... it all got deleted and I have to re-write it.  Awesome.

M'Lissa (Roulson) Story did her Masters thesis using Emerging Leader Labs as a case study for Social Innovation Incubators. This is her presentation of her thesis. Okay, it's not exactly news/press, but it's actually kind of cooler. Somebody did a whole Masters thesis about ELL! // or whatever the title of M'Lissa's full thesis is. :)
Jacki Saorsail compiled a whole output packet as part of her capstone project for her Masters from Gaia University. Be sure to note there are SEVEN TABS OF CONTENT across the top of the page. That's where most the beef is, not on the "cover page."

A Quantum Leap

in Ceptr, Currencies, Evolution, Language, Social Change
We are poised for a quantum leap of human evolution toward true large-scale social collective intelligence (beyond the hierarchical, mechanistic and cancerous organizational models of modern institutions and corporations). However, this breakthrough requires a new EXPRESSIVE CAPACITY which involves new TOOLS and new SKILLS.
TOOLS: Our social, legal, financial and computing infrastructure has centralized/hierarchical control built into its very DNA.
Summer 2012 Eric and I ran a gift-economy based social change incubator. It was awesome! Ben Brownell captured much of the spirit of it in this video.
