Aaron Swartz Hackathon@ethanZa series of hackathons around the world in memory of hacktivist Aaron Swartz#act, #produce, #activism, #commonsHackathonStructure of the event (condensed from meeting notes):
In advance at each location, (at least) one presenter is chosen to "pitch" what they consider a vital project. This project should be eminently hackable -- the presenter or another volunteer who knows the project well should be prepared to help interested parties get involved, at many skill levels.
The event starts like a hybrid (un-)conference, with introductions and short presentations. The pre-announced presenter(s) do these presentations, and during the introductions people can offer or request talks, which are added as time permits on the spot. Total presentation time should be ~1.5-2hrs. Presentations are recorded and immediately posted online (or streamed), for remote participants or people at other hackathons to see.
Then there's open time to work.
Finally, at the end of the event, there are 1.5-2hrs of demonstrates of results. Anyone can sign up on the site with info about project status to get a demo slot. Demos are also recorded and posted online, cross-referenced with individuals and projects.
Accélérateur de projet / Project accelerator@liliousHelp someone who's working on a specific project find ideas and practical solutions/acts to go forward. The project leader first describe his project and question. In a second phase he has to remain silent while the group discuss and try to find solutions.#think, #solve, #think Hold-up, Project Kitchen Meetings, Co-Developpement Professionelideas, but better insights about which acts to take to move forward in a project1 hourun porteur de projet présente et demande l'aide à un groupe de participants suivant une méthodologie précise (10 min + 10 min questions, reformulation, puis le porteur de projet ne peux plus parler et il y a discussion des autres participants entre eux, (20 min) puis enfin le porteur de projet peut refaire une synthèse )
Act Learn@iCOLABOREMOSact learn is an educational process whereby people work and learn together by tackling real issues and reflecting on their acts. Learners acquire knowledge through actual acts and practice rather than through traditional instruction.

act learn is done in conjunction with others, in small groups called act learn sets. It is proposed as particularly suitable for adults, as it enables each person to reflect on and review the act they have taken and the learn points arising. This should then guide future act and improve performance.
African Clap@liliousa simple technique to align and focus as a group. Before the meeting/session starts rub your hands together as if you were cold. Everyone follows and rub their hands together in unison. Someone counts 1, 2, 3 and everyone claps at the same time. This not only bring participants together as a team, but it helps them focus and be on the same wavelength. The same is also done to close the meeting. This format was introduced by an african lady during a permaculture convergence in south africa and helped so much focus the group that is now used by Geoff Lawton in his PDCs. #focus, #alignCheck In / Check Out

AoH (Art of Hosting)@iCOLABOREMOSart of hosting and harvesting conversation that mattersThe Art of Hosting is an approach to leadership that scales up from the personal to the systemic using personal practice, dialogue, facilitation and the co-creation of innovate to address complex challenges. Uses various formats such as circles, open space technology, world cafe, appreciative inquiry, act learn, Collective mind-map, Collective Story Harvest, Proact Café, Graphic Facilitation...#facilitation, #discuss
Applied Improvisation@sebpaquetnon theater uses of improv skillsan approach that puts the principles and techniques of improvisational theater to work in non-theatrical venues such as corporations, academic institutions, organizations, and professional groups. Through participating in improv exercises and games, participants develop vital professional skills. It is a part of the growing international wave of nontraditional, arts-based educational programs being used to help people become better at—and happier with—what they do.

Improv has a set of "games" and "exercises". It is quite possible for both trained actors to become "applied improv" trainers and facilitators, as well as facilitators with no formal acting or performance training to also lead "improv" sessions. "Improv" seems to have created a fusion of teachers, trainers, actors and theatremakers. Applied "improv" usually involves doing things with groups of people.

Improv is an aspect of improvisation. Improvisation, of course, is a very broadly applicable concept, way beyond "improv". Improvisation is often about being "in the moment", being "present". It has roots in eastern religious practices, in meditative states, in creativity, and in various forms of movement, invention, thinking approaches, and art.

Appreciative Inquiry@iCOLABOREMOSPositive approacheAppreciative Inquiry (AI) is a collaborative search to identify and
understand the organization's strengths, its' potentials, its'
greatest opportunities, and people's highest hopes for the future.
Appreciative Inquiry represents a model of organizational
management that rivals the century old command-and-control
version. Its about giving everyone in the organization a voice in
molding future policy and to help with challenges that are
important to the entire group

Awakin Forest Calls@liliousConversations with Social ArtistsForest Calls are a weekly conference call, where inspiring change makers engage in candid conversations about their journey. The call opens with a circle of share, then features a guest speaker and is followed by dynamic Q&A around the emergent themes. The basic idea is really to share, hold space, learn from each other, and help co-create the call.#share, #learn, social-change, #online A speaker is invited to talk to a group over a conference call. The meeting starts with one minute of silence to ground participants presence into the meeting, followed by the 20 minute open-mic followed by discussion with the speaker, and ending with Q&A..
Awakin Local Gatherings@liliousBy changing ourselves, we change the world.Awakin gathering are about deepening self-awareness, in a community of kindred spirits. The meeting includes meditation, reflective share and share home cooked meal.#meditation, #social change, #share gatherings started when three friends got together in 1996 to sit in silence, every Wednesday, in an ordinary living room in Silicon Valley. No teachers or gurus. No set agendas or proposed beliefs either. Just one strong principle -- when you change within, the world changes. And instead of closing the door, they left it open ... to all. The rest, as they say, is history. Today at these gatherings, people sit in silence for the first hour, engage in a circle of reflective share in the second hour, and conclude the night by receiving a delicious home-cooked meal. A palpable sense of gratitude and community weaves through it all. The ripples of inner transformation are countless -- and continue on
Backchannel feedback@liliousA backchannel is a real-time online conversation using networked computers that takes place alongside live spoken remarks. Typically a chat or a twitter channel can be used as a backchannel to follow comments and interact with the audience in the room or worldwide.#communicate, #technology, #onlineTweetWall, Event NewsroomIn large conference this can be use to gather questions and feedback from the assembly while the event/conference is happening. this can also be used to gather questions from people far limitneeds a backchannel such as Twitter and hastags, and a person to do the link between backchannel and the speakers. Alternatively a projecting screen can also be used.
Barcamp@liliousBarCamp is an international network of user-generated conferences (or unconferences) primarily focused around technology and the Web. They are open, participatory workshop-events, the content of which is provided by participants. #learn, #share, WordCamp,BarCamp makes their organizational process freely available, codifying it in a publicly available wiki. In addition to the BarCamp-branded network, it is also a model for user-generated conferences in other fields and for more specialized applicationsBarCamp was based on a reverse-engineering and open wiki documentation of the processes of FooCamp. Unlike traditional conference formats, both BarCamps and FooCamps have a self-organizing character, relying on the passion and the responsibility of the participants.

Although the format is loosely structured, there are rules[19] at BarCamp. All attendees are encouraged to present or facilitate a session or otherwise contribute to the event.[17] Everyone is also asked to share information and experiences of the event via public web channels, including blogs, photo share, social bookmarking, Twitter, wikis, and IRC. This encouragement to share is a deliberate change from the "off-the-record by default" and "no recordings" rules at many invite-only participant driven conferences. It also turns a physical, face-to-face event into a 'hybrid event' which enables remote online engagement with BarCamp participants.
BarCamps are organized and evangelized largely through the web; anyone can initiate a BarCamp using the BarCamp wiki.

Attendees schedule sessions by writing on a whiteboard or putting a Post-It note on an 'grid' of sessions.[17] Those giving sessions are discouraged from using the sessions for promotion. Venues typically provide basic services. Free network access, usually WiFi, is crucial. Following the model of Foo Camp, the venue also makes space for the attendees, or BarCampers, to literally camp out overnight. Thus, BarCamps rely on securing sponsorship, ranging from the venue and network access to beverages and food.

Attendance is typically free of charge and generally restricted only by space constraints. Participants are typically encouraged to sign up in advance.29/9/2012
Barn Raising@liliousA barn raising, also historically called a "raising bee" or "rearing" in the U.K., describes a collective act of a community, in which a barn for one of the members is built or rebuilt collectively by members of the community. #act, #produce, #commons, Meitheal, Talkoot, Dugnad, Naffīr, Gotong-royong, Bayanihan, Imece, Harambee, Minga
Bayanihan@liliousBayanihan is a Filipino term taken from the word bayan, referring to a nation, country, town or community. The whole term bayanihan refers to a spirit of communal unity or effort to achieve a particular objective.#act, #produce, #commons Raising, Gadugi, Meitheal, Talkoot, Dugnad, Naffīr, Gotong-royong, Imece, Harambee, Minga
Better Block Eventa live art installation called “the Better Block” developed to highlight a city’s restrictive zoning and ordinances that limit our ability to create a truly livable block. For two days only, a city Block change from a car-centric thoroughfare, to a people friendly environment, complete with temporary businesses like a cafe, flower market, kid’s art studio, historic lighting, cafe seating, and more.#urbanism, #design, #creativity, #architecture, #place-making, #art, #bond urbanism, Park(ing) Day
BioBlitz@liliousA BioBlitz, also written without capitals as bioblitz, is an intense period of biological surveying in an attempt to record all the living species within a designated area. Groups of scientists, naturalists and volunteers conduct an intensive field study over a continuous time period (e.g., usually 24 hours). There is a public component to many BioBlitzes, with the goal of getting the public interested in biodiversity. To encourage more public participation, these BioBlitzes are often held in urban parks or nature reserves close to cities#act, #map, Blitz
Birds of a feather@liliousIn computing, BoF (birds of a feather) can refer to:

An informal discussion group. Unlike special interest groups or working groups, BoFs are informal and often formed in an ad-hoc manner. The acronym is used by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to denote initial meetings of members interested in a particular issue.
A BoF session, an informal meeting at conferences, where the attendees group together based on a shared interest and carry out discussions without any pre-planned agenda.
#learn, #exchange and ideas shareBoFs can facilitate network and partnership formation among subgroups, including playctionally oriented groups such as CEOs or geographically oriented groups.[2] BoFs generally allow for more audience interact than the panel discussions typically seen at conventions; the discussions are not completely unguided, though, as there is still a discussion leader.
Blitz@liliousFast group act to achieve something, usually within a limited time frame.#act, #producePermablitz, BioBlitzPermaculture (see Permablitz) Biology (BioBlitz)
Bodystorming@liliousBodystorming is a technique sometimes used in interact design or as a creativity technique.
The idea is to imagine what it would be like if the product existed, and act as though it exists, ideally in the place it would be used.
The proponents of this idea like to point out the fact that you get up and move, trying things out with your own body, rather than just sitting around a meeting table. The most common critique seems to be that it is not really a proper user-centred method, since it is more often carried out by the designers than the users of the final product. Christopher Alexander used a similar technique to walk through places with users in order to visualize how building where going to look like and how users would interact with them
BookCrossing flashmob@calimaqThe BookCrossing principle is to label the book and drop it in a public space, and go away so the next person just finds a book. The book's travel can be followed via the website that provide label. A bookcrossing flash mob is a large scale gathering of Bookcrossers releasing books simultaneously. But BookCrossers being booklovers most hang around to see books other people left so it becomes a meeting place.#share, #exchange, #books, #mob books, discover new books, give away old booksBookCrossing usually involve using the website, where books can be registered, a label is printed and pasted on the book. In that way it is possible to track books travelling around the world.
Booksprint@liliousA Book Sprint brings together a group to produce a book in 3-5 days. There is no pre-produce and the group is guided by a facilitator from zero to published book. The books produced are high quality content and are made available immediately at the end of the sprint via print-on-demand services and e-book formats.#act, #writing, #produce, #books, TranslathonThere are three important outcomes from Book Sprints:

* Producing a book
* share knowledge
* Team/community building
The emphasis is on ‘here and now’ produce and the facilitator’s role is to manage interpersonal dynamics and produce requirements through these phases (illustration and creation of other content types can take place along this timeline and following similar phases).There are five main parts of a Book Sprint:

1. Concept map: development of themes, concepts, ideas, developing ownership, etc.
2. Structuring: creating chapter headings, dividing the work, scoping the book (in Booktype, for example).
3. Writing: distributing sections/chapters, writing and discussion, but mostly writing.
4. Composition: iterative process of re-structure, checking, discussing, copy editing, and proofing.
5. Publication
translathonFree software is where the Book Sprint methodology all started. The method was founded by Adam Hyde with the initial spark of inspiration coming from Tomas Krag. Adam is available for facilitating Book Sprints and providing training, workshops & consultancy around collaborative content development and rapid development strategies.

History of Book Sprints

The term ‘Book Sprint’ was coined by Tomas Krag and the Book Sprint method was founded by Adam Hyde. In the first sprints held under this term Tomas brought together a small group of people for a week to plan the outline for a book and then the group worked remotely on developing and editing the contents over a period of 6-9 months.

Adam met Tomas at an event organised by Aspiration and was inspired to try something similar with FLOSS Manuals but with the aim to produce the entire book in 5 days. Zero to book in 5 days. This rapid development of a book in 5 days is the Book Sprint method.

Since founding the method four years ago Adam has refined the methodology greatly and facilitated more than 50 Book Sprints – each wildly different from the other. There have been sprints about software, activism, oil contract transparency, collaboration, work spaces, marketing, training materials, open spending data, notation systems, Internet security, making fonts, OER, art theory and many other topics.
Borda Count@liliousThe Borda count is a single-winner election method in which voters rank candidates in order of preference. The Borda count determines the winner of an election by giving each candidate a certain number of points corresponding to the position in which he or she is ranked by each voter. Once all votes have been counted the candidate with the most points is the winner. Because it sometimes elects broadly acceptable candidates, rather than those preferred by the majority, the Borda count is often described as a consensus-based electoral system, rather than a majoritarian one.#decide
BrainHack@liliousBrainhack is a 3 days event that builds from the concepts of an unconference and hackathon with
Participants interested in neuroimaging from any discipline (e.g., mathematics, computer science, engineering, neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, neurology, medicine, art, etc…).

Each of the next three days begins with an “Ignite Session” in which distinguished neuroscience researchers give 15 minute talks that address wide questions in neuroscience that would benefit from open, interdisciplinary collaborations.

The “Ignite Session” is followed by a “hack session” and a dynamic set of talks organized by attendees. During the “hack sessions”, participants are encouraged to work together in small groups on relevant neuroscience projects. The workshop culminate on the last day, when participants have the opportunity to present a brief overview of their project.

Brainsketching@liliousa BrainWriting technique and a variant on Pin Cards, but you pass evolving sketches rather than growing written lists of ideas around the group. As usual with most brain-writing techniques, only limited facilitation skill is needed.#tools, #creativity, #think, #methods, Brainstorming
Brainstorming@liliousThe term Brainstorming has become a commonly used word in the English language as a generic term for creative thinking. The basis of Brainstorming is a generating ideas in a group situation based on the principle of suspending judgement - a principle which scientific research has proved to be highly productive in individual effort as well as group effort. The generation phase is separate from the judgement phase of thinking.
One of the problems I find, is that there are many variants of Brainstorming, although the basic rules are the same.
#creativity, #think, #method, Brainsketching, Bodystorming
Brainwriting@liliousBrainWriting is a technique similar to Brainstorming and Trigger Sessions. There are many varieties, but the general process is that all ideas are recorded by the individual who thought of them. They are then passed on to the next person who uses them as a trigger for their own ideas. #tools, #creativity, #think, #methods, Brainsketching
Brigade Meetup@liliousCivic hacking is the growing phenomenon of citizens contributing technology skills toward tangible benefits in their communities. A Brigade Meetup is a local collaboration that organizes citizens to engage through the development and use of civic technologies.#governance, #community, #local-#developement
Brown bag seminar@liliousA brown bag seminar, session or lunch is generally a training or information session during a lunch break. "Brown bag" is representative of meals brought along by the attendees, or provided by the host. In the USA, those are often packed in brown paper bags. Brown bag seminars normally run an hour or two.
The aim is to use regular breaks, e.g. the lunch break, to provide some information to the attendees in a voluntary and informal setting. It is often followed by a discussion of the topic. These sessions are common at universities and private companies. They are an interesting medium for knowledge management and internal communicates.
In universities, especially for graduate students, brown bag seminars are often offered to update the researching community about ongoing research. Usually held by schools, universities and governmental institutions, they involve lectures, presentations, or talks by researchers, mostly professors about their ongoing research. Professors may visit from other universities to talk about their research.
#food, #communicate, #learn Mornings, Brutally Early Club
Brutally Early Club@liliousa breakfast salon for the 21st century where art meets science meets architecture meets literature. The reason brutally early club are done at 6.30am in different cafés, which are open so early, is because in 21st-century cities it’s become very difficult to improvise. Everybody has a schedule and it becomes really difficult to decide from one day to the next to gather for a meeting. You have to plan it weeks and weeks in advance. It’s so important to have improvisation in cities. Most people are free at 6.30, so that’s the idea of the Brutally Early Club#creativity, #improvisation, #discuss, early, #food Mornings,Brown bag seminarInvented by Hans Ulrich Obrist in London to have a meeting format that allow to meet people in cities without planning weeks in advance.
Bulletin board@liliousA bulletin board (pinboard, pin board, noticeboard, or notice board in British English) is a surface intended for the posting of public messages, for example, to advertise items wanted or for sale, announce events, or provide information. Bulletin boards are often made of a material such as cork to facilitate addition and removal of messages, or they can be placed on computer networks so people can leave and erase messages for other people to read and see. Internet forums are becoming a global replacement for traditional bulletin boards. Online bulletin boards are sometimes referred to as message boards. #tools, #communicate
Burning Man@liliousBurning Man is an annual art event and temporary community based on radical self expression and self-reliance in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. Because of the variety of goals fostered by participatory attendees, known as "Burners," Burning Man does not have a single focus. Features of the event are subject to the participants and include community, artwork, absurdity, decommodification, and revelry. Participation is encouraged. The Burning Man event and its affiliated communities are guided by ten principles that are meant to evoke the cultural ethos that has emerged from the event. They were originally written by Larry Harvey in 2004 as guidelines for regional organizing, then later became a universal criterion of the general culture of the multifaceted movement. They are:
radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation, immediacy.
#art, #creation, #work, #mob, #experience Inclusion
Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

Burning Man is devoted to acts of give giving. The value of a give is unconditional. giveing does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.

In order to preserve the spirit of giveing, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transacts, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.

Radical Self-reliance
Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.

Radical Self-expression
Radical self-expression arises from the unique gives of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a give to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.

Communal Effort
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communicate that support such interact.

Civic Responsibility
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.

Leaving No Trace
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.

Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through acts that open the heart.

Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.
Burning Man Founder Larry Harvey wrote the Ten Principles in 2004 as guidelines for the newly-formed Regionals Network. They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community's ethos and culture as it had organically developed since the event's inception.
Buy a feature@pointbarA serious game design to help designers and clients to make better decision about which features to develop. Clients are given a certain amont of "money" that they can spend individually or pool to buy features. By engaging customers as a group and giving them a limited amount of resources, you give them the opportunity to prioritize their desires as a group. But that’s not where the magic lies. The magic lies in structuring the conversations so that your customers are negotiating with each other for specific features. It is this negotiation that enhances your understanding of what your customers really want.#design, #decide
Buy Nothing Day@liliousBuy Nothing Day (BND) is an international day of protest against consumerism. In North America, Buy Nothing Day is held the Friday after U.S. Thanksgiving elsewhere, it is held the following day, which is the last Saturday in November. Buy nothing day uses various creative formats such as Credit card cut up,Free,non-commercial street parties, Sit-in, Zombie walk, Whirl-mart,Public protests, Wildcat General Strike, Buy Nothing Day hike, Buy Nothing Critical Mass, Buy Nothing Day paddle, The Winter Coat Exchanges...#theme-day, #platform, #protest, #money Strike
Cacerolazo@liliousA protest where participants bang on pots and pans. Sometimes a manif casserole sounds like random banging, but a rhythm usually arises from the chaos, encircling the disorder and enveloping everyone. Participants can march on the street or bang from their homes.
The casseroles transcend differences that often structure local politics–like language, class, and race–as well as gender and age, which can present barriers in music-making (especially drumming) in addition to politics. Because the instruments are simple, cheap and improvised, almost anyone can join. Because the music is deliberately non-professional, the ideals of mastery and perfection and the weighty gendered and aged assumptions about who can be a “good musician” are inoperative. The beats are easy to pick up and play in time—and if you swing a little out there, all the better.

Casual Friday@liliousCasual Friday is an American and Canadian trend which has spread to other parts of the world, wherein some offices may celebrate a semi-reprieve from the constrictions of a formal dress code. Whereas, during the rest of the week, business shirts, suits, ties, trousers, and dress shoes would be the norm, on Casual Friday workers might be allowed to wear more casual dress. Some companies might allow jeans, casual blouses or T-shirts, hoodies, track jackets, and sneakers/running shoes or even stocking feet, but others require business casual or smart casual dress. Some offices allow a themed dress down day. On this day, even managers in such workplaces are allowed to dress down. In workplaces that have no dress codes some employees enjoy 'Formal Fridays' by dressing up on Friday.

#bond, #theme-day Pants Day
Caucus@liliousA caucus is a meeting of supporters or members of a specific political party or movement. The term caucus is also used in mediation, facilitation and other forms of alternate dispute resolution to describe circumstances wherein, rather than meeting at a common table, the disputants retreat to a more private setting to process information, agree on negotiation strategy, confer privately with counsel and/or with the mediator, or simply gain "breathing room" after the often emotionally-difficult interacts that can occur in the common area where all parties are present. The degree to which caucuses are used can be a key defining element, and often an identifier, of the mediation model being used. For example, "facilitative mediation" tends to discourage the use of caucuses and tries to keep the parties talking at a single table, while "evaluative mediation" may allow parties to separate more often and rely on the mediator to shuttle information and offers back and forth.#facilitation, #debate Debate

Change Lab @iCOLABOREMOSA Change Lab is a multi-stakeholder effort to address a complex social challenge. In a Change Lab, a committed alliance of influential government, business and civil society leaders engage in a rhythmic “U-Process” of co-sensing, co-presencing, and co-creating. These teams produce new insights about their system (including their own role in it) and new high-leverage options to shift it; new and stronger relationships within their team and with other stakeholders; strengthened capacities to work together and to lead and effect change; and a sustained stream of new acts through which they co-create a new social reality. Each Change or Design Lab has a unique approach that it takes to design, research and experimentation. However, there are a few common elements, which appear to be built into each successful model: broad-based research, co-creation of solutions, specialized physical environment, clear process design and facilitation, rapid prototyping, multidisciplinary support staff, continual learn. The most in depth workshops will be operational for months or event years, although the simplest mini workshops can be conducted over the course of a day. Broadly the process has four steps: 1) share diverse point of views from all participants, 2) develop a common understanding and start to point to co-create solutions, 3) prototyping solutions, test and iterate, 4) at some point prototyping lead to the selection of a set of design solutions.#design , #think
Changemaker Bootcamp@eekimPracticing the skills we need to change the world.Changemaker Bootcamp is a space for changemakers in the San Francisco Bay Area — people trying to make positive change in their companies, communities, and the world — to practice the skills they need to work effectively in groups.

It consists of six weekly two-hour sessions. Each bootcamp is limited to 12 participants.

Participants come to bootcamp with specific projects where they are trying to make change. These could be from work or something they’re pursuing on their own. They work out in a safe environment with other great changemakers, then they practice on their own with their projects that same week. The weekly format allows participants to integrate what they’ve practiced immediately into their work and to receive regular feedback, both of which increase the likelihood that what they’re learn will stick.

Participants practice skills for collective leadership, which will help them work successfully in any group context, from small teams or large networks. Specific skills include:

Asking generative questions
Strategic doing
Listening and synthesizing actively and in real-time
Navigating group dynamics and difficult conversations
Designing and facilitating group engagements
Working transparently

Changemaker Bootcamp is about practice, not teaching. You learn by doing, and you benefit from the collective wisdom of all the participants, not just the trainer

Chaos communicate Camp@liliousThe Chaos communicate Camp is an international meeting of hackers that takes place every four years, organized by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC).

The camp is an event for providing information about technical and societal issues, such as privacy, freedom of information and data security. Hosted speeches are held in big tents and conducted in English as well as German. Each participant may pitch a tent and connect to a fast internet connection and power.

Chaos communicate Congress@liliousThe Chaos communicate Congress is an annual meeting of the international hacker scene, organized by the Chaos Computer Club. The congress features a variety of lectures and workshops on technical and political issues.

The event takes place regularly at the end of the year since 1984, with the current date and duration (December 27-30) established in 2005. The congress started out in 1984 in Hamburg, moved to Berlin in 1998, and back to Hamburg in 2012. Having exceeded the capacity of the Berlin venue with more than 4000 attendees, the 2012 meeting in the considerably larger venue in Hamburg set a new record attendance of slightly over 6,000 participants.

A large range of speakers are part of the scene. Organizational work is done by volunteers called Chaos Angels. The non-members entry fee for four days has been 80 Euros since 2006.

An important part of the Congress are the assemblies, semi-open spaces with clusters of tables and internet connections for groups and individuals to collaborate and socialize in projects, workshops, and hands-on talks. These assembly spaces, introduced at the 2012 meeting, combine the hack center project space and distributed group spaces of former years.

Charrette@liliousThe word charrette may refer to any collaborative session in which a group of designers drafts a solution to a design problem. While the structure of a charrette varies, depending on the design problem and the individuals in the group, charrettes often take place in multiple sessions in which the group divides into sub-groups. Each sub-group then presents its work to the full group as material for further dialogue. Such charrettes serve as a way of quickly generating a design solution while integrating the aptitudes and interests of a diverse group of people.#design, #think

Circle@liliousThe circle, or council, is an ancient form of meeting that has gathered human beings into respectful conversation for thousands of years.

Citizen Deliberative Councils@liliousCitizen Deliberative Councils (CDCs) are temporary, face-to-face councils of a dozen or more citizens whose diversity reflects the diversity of their community, state or country. Usually council members are selected at random, often with additional criteria to ensure gender, racial, socioeconomic and other diversity. These diverse ordinary citizens convene for two to ten days (and occasionally longer) to consider some public concern -- to learn about it (often by hearing and cross-examining diverse experts), to reflect on it together (usually with the help of a professional facilitator or moderator), and to craft a collective statement which they then announce to the public and/or relevant officials and agencies, often through a press conference.

After that they disband. In current democratic visions featuring CDCs, they have no permanent or official power except the power of legitimacy and widely-publicized common sense solutions to compelling public problems.

Clearness Commitee@liliousWithin the Quakers community, the clearness committee represents a process for discernment. Clearness Committees are often used when a member of the meeting seeks to reach clarity on how to respond to a concern or dilemma; the process is one of aiding the person seeking clearness in finding the answer within rather than seeking outside advice or guidance. The playction of the Clearness Committee is not to give advice or “fix” people from the outside in but rather to help people remove the interference so that they can discover their own wisdom from the inside out. everything participants say is governed by one rule, a simple rule and yet one that most people find difficult and demanding: members are forbidden to speak to the focus person in any way except to ask honest, open questions. This means absolutely no advice and no amateur psychoanalysis. It means no, “Why don’t you…?” It means no, “That happened to me one time, and here’s what I did…” It means no, “There’s a book/therapist/exercise/diet that would help you a lot.” Nothing is allowed except real questions, honest and open questions, questions that will help the focus person remove the blocks to his or her inner truth without becoming burdened by the personal agendas of committee members. #support
Click, UnClick, Rewind@pointbarTimeTraveling tools for discussionsSmall procedure for discussions. Click: “simple and stupid, therefore effective” - if you don’t understand something say “click” to step out of your role, ask for an explanation, then say “unclick” (ie. interrupt and “return from interrupt”). When coaching in pairs, coaches can “click” to ask what the other coach is doing.
Rewind: ask to have the last few sentences, or questions “struck from the record”. To change or remove something you wish you had not said, or to change your mind.

Coach-retreat@pointbarCoach retreat is a one day workshop to experience coaching techniques. The idea of improving as a coach, using the code retreat framework of "persisting by repeat and change techniques " to handle a "problem". Coach retreat is a learn format that combines several coaching DoJos Sessions in a code retreat like sequence . During a coach retreat the participants will practice and observe different coaching postures and techniques to solve one given situation ( as the "game o life" is the popular exercise for code retreats).
Sequencing the coaching dojos under a code retreat format gives a "natural" mix of words :

Collective Opening Speech is an activity for energising a conference at the start, or can also be carried out at key points during the conference and even at the end.

The idea is to give a short, opening speech, a "welcome" to the conference. This lasts for 2-3 minutes. The difference is that it isn't one person who gives this speech but everyone, together - at the same time!

It plays with improvisation and resonance and can be breathtaking sometimes, at other times play and motivating.

It works with very large groups. Even 500 people!

Finally, we come together to converge our learns across all the stories. #align, connect, #learn & Takeushi, World Cafe
Coloured Running Event@liliousInspired by Holi, the indian festival of colours, Coloured Running events are an event series and 5 km paint race that takes place in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The untimed event has no winners or prizes, but runners are showered with colored powder at stations along the run.

Runners begin dressed in clean white t-shirts, and pass through a color station once every kilometer. Each color station is associated with a different color, with volunteers blasting the runners with dyed cornstarch out of spray bottles. Runners complete the course covered in the safe and colorful powder. At the finish line following the untimed run, there are typically celebrations featuring a dance party and food vendors.

This event formats has also been use to raise playds for charity.

The format seems successful and generated several variants (Color Run, Color Me Rad, Color Vibes) but they seems to be organized by for-profit event companies and not by communities, and some have attracted negative criticism, for example in The Color Run some participants were upset to learn that all proceeds weren't given to charity.

However this format is fairly easy to copy and can be easily organized by any running community with little means.

Concept Map@liliousA concept map is a diagram that depicts suggested relationships between concepts. It is a graphical tool that designers, engineers, technical writers, and others use to organize and structure knowledge.

A concept map typically represents ideas and information as boxes or circles, which it connects with labeled arrows in a downward-branching hierarchical structure. The relationship between concepts can be articulated in linking phrases such as causes, requires, or contributes to.

The technique for visualizing these relationships among different concepts is called concept map.

Mind maps differ from concept maps in that mind maps focus on only one word or idea, whereas concept maps connect multiple words or ideas. Also, concept maps typically have text labels on their connecting lines/arms. Mind maps are based on radial hierarchies and tree structures denoting relationships with a central governing concept, whereas concept maps are based on connections between concepts in more diverse patterns.

Condorcet Vote@liliousA Condorcet method is any election method that elects the candidate that would win by majority rule in all pairings against the other candidates, whenever one of the candidates has that property. A candidate with that property is called a Condorcet winner

A Condorcet winner doesn't always exist because majority preferences can be like rock/paper/scissors: for each candidate, there can be another that is preferred by some majority (this is known as Condorcet paradox). Voting methods that always elect the Condorcet winner (when one exists) are the ones that satisfy the Condorcet criterion.

Most Condorcet methods have a single round of voting, in which each voter ranks the candidates from top to bottom. A voter's ranking is often called his/her order of preference, although it may not
match his/her sincere order of preference since voters are free to rank in any order they choose and may have strategic reasons to misrepresent preferences.

Consensus decide@liliousConsensus decide is a group decide process that not only seeks the agreement of most participants, but also the resolution or mitigation of minority objections and concerns. Consensus may be defined professionally as an acceptable resolution, one that can be supported, even if not the "favourite" of each individual. Consensus decide is thus concerned with the process of deliberating and finalizing a decision, and the social and political effects of using this process.#decide, BoteConsensus decide is an appropriate process whenever (a) there is an informed lack of agreement, and (b) there is a collective interest in achieving such agreement.agreement, decideIt focuses on differences as learn opportunities, not ‘problems’

Culture Jamming events@lilious
Culture jamming, is the act of using existing media such as billboards, bus-ads, posters, and other ads to comment on those very media themselves or on society in general, using the original medium's communicate method. It is based on the idea that advertising is little more than propaganda for established interests, and that there is little escape from this propaganda in industrialized nations. Culture jamming differs from artistic appropriation (which is done for art's sake), and from vandalism where destruction or defacement is the primary goal.

The word, "culture jamming" comes from the idea of radio jamming: that public frequencies can be pirated and subverted for independent communicate, or to disrupt dominant frequencies. The Situationist International first made the comparison to radio jamming in 1968, when it proposed the use of guerrilla communicate within mass media to sow confusion within the dominant culture. (Kalle Lasn, the founder of AdBusters magazine, wrote a book entitled Culture Jam, but the term predates his title.)

Culture jamming is a form of activism and a resistance movement to the hegemony of popular culture, based on the ideas of "guerrilla communicate" and the "detournement" of popular icons and ideas. It has roots in the German concept of spass guerilla, and the Situationist International. Forms of culture jamming include adbusting, performance art, graffiti art and hacktivism (notably cybersquatting
