Building New Worlds

StarttUpTown Weekend - Stanford

February 2015

Building webs of connections outside that actually become so powerful that it actually starts to change people at the core.

How do you actually start to build new worlds with the network tools that we actually have, which is the deepest kind of tinkering?

The real game that we have today in this network age is new notions of networks and imagination.

How do we amplify our ability through emergence collective action?

But the key part of play is a space of safety and permission. What kinds of permission do we give our students today?

What kinds of permission are required for the tools that we are talking about to really have their power?

And what types of institutional innovations do we need to think about that grant those types of permission in order to be playful in this deep epistemological sense?

So I think that we are finding fundamentally new ways to bring about change is really now looking much more closely on how you build webs of connections outside that actually become so powerful that it actually starts to change people at the core.

Not through terror, not through push, but through seduction and pull.
