Sicamp was a great event held earlier this year an effort to generate social innovation in a weekend. They’ve just listed nine lessons with the invitation to steal them break them etc. They’re all thought-provoking. The first is my favourite and goes right to the heart of why I dislike most conventional conferences.
I’d rewrite the third (“create moments of self-organisation”) as I thought sicamp created a huge continuum of self-organisation. I’d say it’s more about having a little bit of structure within which self-organisation can happen.
