We could help the new short video we are making go viral!  Do you know geeks that would have an interest in that?

Thanks Melanie .. and You're on ... regarding sharing more ideas. For example ..  I'm thinking about starting 'collaborative design' sessions for groups that form here on Occupy Cafe. For this group, I think we need to promote more folks into it first, in order to get a little bit of traction. Who may have interest and how shall we invite them?

Thank you for your comments Vic!  I agree!
I loved your and Suzanne's advice on the conference call today.  Yes we need to get the word out here on Occupy Cafe and have 5 easy steps people can begin with.
Let me know if you think of any more ideas and I welcome everyone's input!

Thank you Gary Davis for your input on the call today, and to Melanie for starting this group. It strikes me that the 'World Citizen' (WC) concept is a crucial piece to the Occupy Movement's future.

I'd like to see this WC group to become an exemplar for how to move Occupy Cafe groups into networks of valued connections, then into a collectively agreed upon action (such as getting your city to become a town of 'world cities', etc.)

Any thoughts? Viic D.

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More

Leadership Ecology

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
