In a word: wow
In two words: rockstar team
In three words: holy f!*k&@g s*!t
As the purported facilitator for the TEDActive Social Networks project, I can only describe our day-one, two-hour, meaty opening session as both tough slogging and engaging beyond all reason. It is a remarkable group who has signed on for this project – dynamic & thoughtful, excellent listeners, generous, funny & kind.
We (pretty quickly) reshaped our opening question into seven more specific ones that we would love love love folks to respond to with ideas that answer them (as we will be doing as well in the next couple of days). You can respond here or in threads on TED Conversations, as well as on our actionplatform on IfWeRanTheWorld.
To my social network project brethren – I’ve written these questions slightly differently than we captured them on the board today. I know you will chime in if you feel I’ve strayed too far.
- How might you better discover what matters to you through your social networks?
- If you want to do something for an issue or cause you care about, how might you find an action you can take?
- How might you tip inspiration into action?
- How might we tackle big things with human-sized action?
- How might we capture & communicate our footprint/achievement/reputation for real-world action?
- How might we capture & communicate a group’s footprint/achievement/reputation for real-world action?
- How might social networks make you more courageous?
- How might you move from tweet to street?
We look forward to what everyone has to say.
