We have crafted and are ongoingly crafting this site to share learnings/insight/curiosities/wonderings – [it seems almost like a thesis of the last 4 years and also a prototype for an app we are crafting – yet seeking to model/share it in a way to perhaps debunk the mindset many currently hold (or are held to) on what matters, ie: what does success mean, what does credentialing mean] So everyone’s work is all over it. And attribution becomes a blur, as we melt into us.
Besides work/insight on the site, particularly with video/web design, Sam’s interest has been in ideas relating to a new mindset in what economy means. Seen in some of the following pages
– small is beautiful – economy as if people mattered
– decentralization – starfish and the spider
– new econ for 100% of humanity – 1 earning a living for 10,000
– behavioral econ – how do you define irrational, why do we do what we do
– intention economy – intentionality/transparency as currency – goal of curiosity app
– the zoom dance – timelines..
– 95% – literacy/cheating
– econ plan for city as school: betting on the sync (people, spaces/resources, tech to connect)
– little longer version – our informal business plan: business plan
– to know
In the first year of the lab – he jumped/fell right into the time/talent mentality (chess for Hebrew) via Skype with a Jewish school in Australia.
This year he’s experiencing another virtual realm with MLB Stars Collection:
MLB Stars Collection is an iOS application by CyberX that is officially endorsed by Major League Baseball. The app puts the user in the position of a GM as they attempt to construct a dynasty using real MLB players from all 30 teams.
Of the game he writes:
During the course of a day, I’m talking to other players, perhaps 100 are playing at a time, I maybe talk to 10-15 a day. You make posts and people comment on them. For example, the people that I have for trade, what I’m looking for to get from the trade, then others post an offer. So to me, this is like Economics because I attend events to earn prizes to get started, like my own company. Then people start buying from me or trading with me. From there I have to figure out things like, what I want, what ‘s a good deal, what’s a fair deal.
Their wikia site.
Here Mary Ann writes of similar community/learnings of her son via Minecraft.
(Minecraft is now being referred to as potentially, the future university for engineers, because, for instance, a good engineer gets something built right by the 3rd try, an average one, by the 10th try, those using Minecraft virtually, usually get it built right on the first try.)
Changing our ways, looking for and leaning into all the ways (public – concerning all the people) to learn/be/do, so that suffocating from the day is no longer an issue.
a rubik’s cube.. waiting to be answered…
1\ gentleness – beyond justice.. grace
2\ peace – we just want peace
3\ whatever is
whatever joy you see today was hard won this am – joni
april 2018 – grace
tim keller: get to underlying beauty of gospel before you reason it out..
show the beauty – so not a fear to believe or a rationalizing to believe.. but wanting to believe
john 1:14 – full of grace and truth
greatness of grace is not so much an explanation but an experience… ie: more deeply found in gospels though jesus never said the word.. story captures grace in a way that explanation can’t ie’s: prodigal son; leper; woman in john – cast first stone; demon possessed man – grace can rewrite story; thief on cross (maybe it’s not too late for me).. i love that none of thee people are given a name.. so maybe that could be me that is (given? can’t read my writing) this extravagant grace..
didn’t feel worthy to be around others
not: worthy is the lion.. worthy is the lamb
do you want to believe – is this grace something you hope is true
‘to write the love of god above would drain the ocean dry nor could the scroll contain the whole though stretched from sky to sky‘
some songs (lyrics on linked pages):
be still by canyon city
can you hear my heart from there – bellarive
behold our god by risen
