The first one was amusement."Well, I suppose that's interesting. If you ever find a use for it, let me know".
The second one was overt antagonism. "How dare you be so arrogant and tell us that if we don't change, we will be left behind. Who do you think you are!"
I had done a lot of public speaking. This was the first time that people had reacted in these ways. I thought that something must be wrong with what I was saying. So, I stopped public speaking, retired, and put these ideas away.
The technological advances in the past 20 years in the areas of information, communication, computing, finance and others... which have unleashed CIC, the force I was talking about ... are having an impact on everything.. And those forces are accelerating.
29thday.org is our attempt to continue the conversation. We hope to do this through what we will call a 21st century book. That is, a book that is collaborative, iterative and never finished. So how would we define our purpose?
Please come join us for the continuing conversation.
Here are some ground rules:
2. 29thday.org is inclusive. That means everyone is invited to participate.
3. 29thday.org is not primarily about political or policy debates. It is about how to solve problems using CIC principles.
4. 29thday.org is collaborative. Interaction is desired. Let's keep it professional and cordial. We reserve the right to remove any accounts that are abusive or inappropriate.
5. While we encourage participation, practicality requires that all submissions become the property of 29thday.org and it's owners.
6. 29thday.org is not for profit. We want to have a discussion. We are not looking to make money.
Again, thanks for stopping by and we look forward to our conversations.
