John, thanks for your courage of writing about and for the narrative, in intellectual climate dominated by the post-modernists "no narrative" narrative. I just posted a blog dialoguing with yours, here: .
with that post, you became my role model!

Bernd, i think what you suggest is a direction in convo processing definitely worth to explore. It's not clear how I could contribute to it. What I've been experimenting with is collaborative, time-stamped note-taking that parsing the notes for gems and complete them from the audio segment at the corresponding time stamp, if need be.

> If I find you in both A and B that attracts my attention and I realize we have more in common. I forgot to tell that I wrote something related to that in 2003, in a blog about "community straddling" , in which I borrowed and referenced Sebpaquet's concept of the same, which he mentioned in his essay on "Online Communities and the Future of Culture" . In his comment on my blog, Flemming Funch added: "George also pointed out in an e-mail today the leverage found in the ability to speak multiple languages, in terms of collective intelligence. American supremacy made the world learn English. But now there probably are more people who speak two or more languages in Europe than in the U.S. More people who are fluent in straddling multiple cultures. This is all important, I think. Will become increasingly important. People who act as neurons between cells that otherwise wouldn't be connected, because they speak different languages or have different world views or specialize in different areas." Now, reading CoCreatr's thoughts on connecting circles, and being present to the zillions new tools enabling it, I feel it's time for some serious, participatory action research into this fertile area of boosting our CI at increasing scale. I just wish we can find a Medici for the new Renaissance to sponsor it... :-)

hi openworld, > a person's user profile might quickly (visually) show causes and people they consider part of their "extended self," in civic, personal, and business dimensions awesome! when we get there that would be a BIG step accelerating the process of our planetary innervation! > We may do a #junto or Skype session this Saturday around 11 pm Eastern time - if you're free, it would be great to have you and any other kindreds join! I'd love to but didn't find a "Register" link at What did I overlook?

CoCreatr, more such mutual recognitions are happening not only in yours and my universe, but also in the universe of everybody else I know on the edge. Wondering what does it tell about the likelihood of a social singularity within our lifetime? How would it look like? Can it be a milestone pointing to Omega Point or, at least, a step towards the global mind awakening to sentience? In either way, fun times ahead; also hugely challenging. That's because higher-order, global-scale CI is not optional, it's an imperative of survival, IMHO.
