Our Common Purpose - ideas to explore

Thanks very much, Phil, for taking this initiative to start this blog. I am sure collectively we will all contribute towards utilizing our strengths, knowledge, expertise and vision to fulfill our common purpose. I was wondering if we all brain storm together to generate some ideas.

I came across this site called Chimpanzee Collaboratory
which is a 'collborative project of attorneys, scientists and public policy experts working to make significant and measurable progress in protecting the lives and establishing the legal rights of chimpanzees and other great apes.'

Similarly, we can try to identify a common cause or causes that we can all work together to achieve.

collective dreaming?

Hello people, my name is Chloe, thank you Phil for allowing me into your blog. I'm working at the London school of economics on a 'citizens' campaign against terror' (sounds and is, fairly daunting!). I wanted to talk to you about how we might use collective blogging and other such in the network we are creating. Also I'm involved in various oddball projects and I want to think about how to use technology most creatively. At the moment i'm collecting peoples most memorable dreams from around the world, and am also doing a night-time radio show based on these stories. You can find some of the dreams at http://www.worlddreaming.blogspot.com/
Looking forward to the development of our common purpose, Chloe

team blog continues the conversation of a book

one interesting use of a team blog would be to continue the conversation started by a book. a team blog could also allow readers of a book to inform the author of a book what the book is about, allowing the author of the book to see his or her ideas thru a wider angled lens.

Teamwork for the Masses

As we explore the depths of our existence we come across others that share our focus and passion. Let there be blogs to record our journy and provide a venue for sharing it with others.

thanks phil

Moodle can be used for community organizing

Gina Russell Stevens tells me that Moodle works very nicely as a collaborative community organizing tool -- even though it wasn't designed for that purpose.

Why this blog was started

This team blog was started to share ideas about the power of human beings working together in common purpose. Postings will include personal musings, inspirational quotes, and links to related information on the Internet.

This blog was inspired by the pathbreaking work of the Wikipedia.
