    Zen And The Art Of Doing...
    Zen And The Art Of Doing...The word “Zen” gets thrown around quite a bit these days and more often than not, it’s being misused by some tragically hip barista, or another of his skinny-jean wearing brethren. Just because the local craft-beer pub’s décor is minimalist and...

    Loved the humourous asides in the middle of this buzz. For me the zen moment was the line

    QUOTE: [So, I did what any dynamic, go-getting, highly-experienced marketing executive would do when faced with such unexpected adversity–I sat on the sofa for a week, sulking, refusing to shave and spending an inordinate amount of time honing my Grand Theft Auto skills.] END QUOTE

    Then the whole buzz is wrapped very well with action orientation and the art of doing. Maybe the missing piece in the buzz is quality as in Persig's book "Zen and the Art of Motorcyle Maintenance" http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/08/31/zen-motorcycles-and-the-cult-of-tech-how-robert-pirsig-s-classic-anticipated-the-future.html but the piece is balanced with all the tiny moments of difference that lend energy to action i.e. all the doings that comprise of making a home and not just contributing to making a living,;and the buzz does articulate the difference between Zen being a fashion statement that one wears like a tattoo, from Zen as being and way, not just a way of doing. I don't really desire to be called a philosopher, ultimately life is best when it is action learning. http://www.studygs.net/actionlearn.htm

    Overall enjoyed reading this buzz and seeing that this is the first contribution to beBee, I would like warmly welcome you to the beBee tribe and I congratulate you on a well-written and thought out opening buzz.

    Hi @Steve Geibel, phew, glad you shaved first ;-) I actually loved your 'shameless plug,' and the all natural products on your website. Thank you for being so detailed about 'just getting out and doing it.' Your words are motivators!! I'm glad you figured it out and found a way to work for yourself after being downsized!

    There is a lot here to make me think. As a starter I am looking right now at Alex's video found within one of your links here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoshJr_cEgY and it is worth my time thinking about how these 9 building blocks apply to ourselves.

    #3 Alex, for me the mix is important. 75% of my personal life is no one's business but 25% is open, and 25% of my professional life is open but 75% of my business is getting work done. That still leaves a lot open in the middle and so the mix is important for me. Like all things these choices are best in moderation and balance, and what we choose as "open" is the balance. Look at BeBee it is taking our personal affinity and mixing it with professional affinity. Affinity is the best mix of all.

    Great advice for anyone who is going to become a part of free-agent nation and is involved in task or mainstream consulting work. I had a far different motivation because I made home the center of my meaning and not work - and because we did we also eliminated the overhead of an external office.

    While I endorse being business centered in the home office, our work led us to to dealing with senior executive teams out of Washington, New York or Chicago - all by teleconferencing (I have worked in a home office environment for 17 years), so for us we considered it really cool that we were talking to executive teams in plush conference boardrooms while we were still in our pajama's talking into the polycom in my brothers bedroom. If work is the center of meaning, I would not recommend anyone doing this - stay professional.

    I have utilized Trello but save a great regard for Slack https://slack.com/ - for people who think working at home beats working in an office, initially the novelty is great, but the biggest thing I missed were office based interactions - but that was balanced out by the fact that I got to watch my kids grow up before my eyes and I would not trade that experience for commuting to work.

    I had no idea that Wordpress has such a network of developer conferences https://central.wordcamp.org/schedule/ and this for me is the real power of affinity, to see these communities of practice proliferate globally, and rather than organize around the traditional professional organization i.e. the HR, Project Management, Marketing institutes, a network that is affinity based places the talent on the front foot rather than thought leaders creating their own professional ego kingdoms. Enjoyed reviewing the Wordcamp sites including Sevilla. Fortunately also tomorrow the people of Britain will probably vote to remain in Europe, which means that I get to keep my EU passport - so learning about WordCamp Europe also reminded me of that.

    This is great. Observing the tools for colour palette resources has enabled me to see that I should personally treat design thinking separately from creativity, where design thinking should now become a part of my work process and creativity is the means to transformation through emergence. This realization helps me greatly as I configure my own learning journey.

    #7 I am not a typical user in that I utilize a database called Commence RM http://www.commence.com/commence-rm/ which I found relatively easy to create small custom databases because then I can format to whatever I am focusing on. In life we sometimes intuitively back off from people we are uncomfortable with and the same is true with corporate persons like Facebook (under American law corporations are now considered persons). That is why the social graph provided by Facebook is then limited due to an extremely minimal use of Facebook. Google is something I actively use but here I have turned off the tracking but I am happy with the search functions in terms of finding information. This is how I applied what inspired me from "filter failure" idea of Clay Shirky. For sure I am creating cow paths where designers want me to use the walk path but here I am not a system designer but take an end-user perspective. I also know the field is expanding rapidly and we get exposure to Geoffrey Hinton because he operates out of our local university and so my learning interest is as a lay person intrigued by how you think and people like Hinton http://ocrampal.com/node/164

    #5 Thanks for the link, unfortunately, it is dated. I don't agree a better filter is the solution. We need a different engine, which is apparently Graph Computing. Facebook is based on a social graph. When you login to Facebook, it presents your personal graph. Facebook tried to introduce graph search, but it is not taking off because of privacy issues and the difficulty of defining a navigation structure. https://www.facebook.com/graphsearcher/. Google uses their knowledge graph to make the search results more relevant. https://www.google.com/intl/es419/insidesearch/features/search/knowledge.html. To make the search results more meaningful; Google has to determine which branch of the tree the user is one and uses the results from the branches at the top of the search results. There is a lot of interest in graph databases today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graph_database. I view graph as a natural way to store connected information but the interface is based on list processing and intersection of sets just like Facebook and Google Search. I do traversing and other graph manipulations, but it is difficult to make it intuitive and useful to the users.

    #1 I have not viewed this problem from the perspective of too many choices. Too much choice can just be as bad as too little. I look at this problem, mainly from the perspective of information overload and sense making. It is difficult for us to make sense of an issue when we do not have the tacit knowledge. Tacit knowledge as proposed by Polanski can best be acquired by immersion. This is a luxury we don't have when we are dealing with complex issues. I reduce these elements of tacit knowledge to industry and background knowledge. By integrating many years of the AG's report, connecting the audits through the audit areas and issues, and providing background information on the public entities and their reporting structure, I hope to alleviate some of the problems of tacit knowledge. Beginners using the system may get distracted with the large amount of connected information, but they can soon narrow down to what they are looking for. The connected information is there, when they are looking for background and industry knowledge.

    What you are building is a fine plane called Transparency Airways, but at the end of the day, how this initiative flies is making it easy for the passenger or end-user of the possibilities of destination. When they board such a flight, if we tell them all about the technical aspects of the plane, it may be too much for them and indeed all the extra information may make them want to fly another airline - so transparency is never an easy thing and here one confronts what Barry Schwartz addresses as the Paradox of Choice https://www.ted.com/talks/barry_schwartz_on_the_paradox_of_choice?language=en Here a two prong approach is relevant - a set of information for champions of the plane itself, which is how I read this buzz (and it is great) and an opportunity for a citizen to fly - making that a one-to-one simplified relationship, where the traveler is invited to travel and feels like they can contribute to reaching their destination. When the individual destinations are then viewed in aggregate - that serves to provide a map or journey of the user experience. Transparency unleashes a lot of information but the Paradox of Choice kicks in, if this becomes a search for pilots instead of an invitation for passengers. Pilots, mechanics and crew are important, but so is the information journey.
