What we would need to actually help create the information and communication systems that would empower civil society to address the significant problems that the world faces.
These categories are placeholders for a living pattern language that would help cultivate those systems.
I'm putting this list up without commentary. I hope to add more soon...
Vision and Purpose
Why get involved? What would we really like to see in our information and communication systems?
online and otherwise, a people’s Google?!
ourselves, our students, general public, venues, needs and approaches
Collaborative Venues and Values
visioning, building, deliberating, experimenting
roles, infrastructure, branding, mission(s), outreach, other groups
with government, business, conferences, internet bodies, manifestos, critique
Community Interaction and Dialogue
partnerships, community inquiry
schedules, protocols, shared documents, forums
Early Warning and Rapid Response
events, white papers, op-eds, petitions, testimony
guidelines, procedures, documents, self-evaluation, using our (not developed yet) patterns
