What I would like to suggest and explore together with others here in DigiLife, is a set of tools with which to help everyone (not just us) operationalise better digital platforms, better digital commons, better digital workplaces for groups and team, better digital discourse as well as open inquiry and participatory inquiry.
Earlier, John named these elements as key to the kinds of digital spaces he wants to support:
- data and information (input)
- curation (moderate)
- conversation (catalyze)
- dashboard (moderate)
- intangibles leverage (catalyze)
- knowledge (output)
I see this idea of “tools” as referring not just to software but also to the processes we develop for how to use different platforms. John has named a few virtual spaces where he thinks some of this innovation is happening, including his own Conversation group.
Where do others see inspiring work happening in this regard, and what can we learn from our experiences as a whole?
