Relatively Regular Recap

One new idea came from a response of one of the lead authors (Tony Waters) of a forthcoming post (Re-Imagining Post-Nationalism). We went through the process for the typical collaborative blog post — lead author 3–4 paragraphs, anchor author 3–4 paragraphs. After I (the anchor author in this post) shared back the 3–4 paragraphs, he asked if he could write another 3–4 paragraphs responding to what I wrote. We exchanged e-mails and this idea evolved into a new form, that will bring in a third voice to the conversational post, namely:

lead author — anchor author — lead author — double anchor (third voice)

We will be exploring and sharing more about this in the coming weeks. For anyone that has already published a post — if you would like to expand your post, let us know!

A couple other ideas that are unfolding is re-interpreting the ‘text-only’ posts into other mediums (painting, drawing, poetry). One artist has volunteered, and is in the process of exploration. Also, I reached out to a local art college to see if their students would be interested in engaging and they shared that students are off for holiday soon, but that we can pick up the conversation after the New Year. So, let’s see. (see more in the Invitations section at the end of this post).

Another experiment that was discussed, and soon to be explored, is exploring posts that have people that speak different languages engaging, simultaneously, line-for-line, with the same topic, within a post. This is being explored with Vũ Vũ, the lead author in Re-Imagining our Relationships with Natural Disasters.


As of today we have released 32 Re-Imaginations. As long as we have posts to release, and people that are interested in sharing, we will continue building on this collection and getting closer to a diverse, and comprehensive, Systems View for a more compassionate and connecting future.

Open Invitations for:

  • Use your artistic skills to re-interpret a post(s)
  • Share with groups of people that might be interested (i.e. art school students, art-focused organizations etc.
  • Share the invitation with a friend that might be interested

mergers & mappers — to map the posts in the series until now to show the interconnections and to start developing a comprehensive, compassionate, systems view of the future. We encourage someone to do this digitally, so we can continuously, and collaboratively, add to it as new posts get released.

  • Share about softwares that might work
  • Generate the initial mapping with the first 12 posts
  • Share the invitation with a friend that might be interested

anchors — to initiate collaborative blog posts. Up until now I (dan) have been the ‘anchor author’ on all of the posts. Anybody who has contributed a post already to the series can be an anchor, which entails responding to the lead authors initial paragraphs and doing the initial editing. At this point, I will plan to do the final editing and posting of posts initiated by other anchors.

  • Become an anchor author
  • Share the invitation with a friend that might be interested

expanded leads & double anchors — to extend the pre-exisiting conversations. Anybody who has contributed a post already to the series can be an expanded lead. Simply, they would respond to the anchor author in the post that they have already submitted with another 3–4 paragraphs, and then reach out (or ask someone from the ROF team to reach out) and find a third voice (or double anchor) to add to the post.

  • Become an expanded lead

are there any other ways that you would like to get involved? ideas that you want to propose? we welcome any/all ideas …
