The InsightOS manifesto: a community for advancing new thinking
Kevin Kelly, founder of Wired magazine, outlined 12 deep and inevitable trends. One was ‘sharing’:
“On my imaginary Sharing Meter Index we are still at 2 out of 10.”
Let’s push this up a notch.
This article is a call-to-arms. It’s a message to all with a thirst for new thinking. Who feel that a radical new approach is needed to understand the butterfly effects of new technology, economics, and globalised culture. Who want to create a hive of meaningful information, ideas and best practice and allow knowledge to build upon knowledge.
This is our manifesto (based on the Agile Manifesto):
Human Intelligence (HI) AND Artificial Intelligence (AI) over one or the other
Community and collaboration over proprietary black boxes
Ideas in practice over ideas in reports
Human centred progress over technology centred progress
We encourage diversity in age, gender, ethnicity, neurodiversity, career, seniority and interests. It will focus on finding common ground between corporate, academic and hobbyist researchers.
Project One — (dis)Connected Lives
In this age of digital progress, time feels out of joint.
(dis)Connected lives explores the shadow of technology, diagnosing ‘digital pathologies’ and offering ‘digital remedies’.
We have been collaborating on this for six months, and we’ve opened dozens of new paths that need to be explored. We would love you to get involved in helping map this out.
We’ve got big plans and made big strides already. We’re currently running meetups and publishing our content to Medium. We’ve started working on what a shared bank of knowledge might look like. We’ve been engaging the largest companies, the most prestigious universities and the smallest startups.
We want you to help grow this community. To shape it with your unique set of professional and personal experiences. Because together we can learn, share and advance our shared knowledge and collective wisdom. Come and join our Slack group and we’ll greet you there.
Let’s make 2018 the year of collaboration!
