Being in the world
One's engagement with the world is informed and deepened by awareness of 2nd-order and 3rd-order consequences of one's interaction with others.
We believe the current trends of open innovation, transdisciplinary collaboration, disintermediation, customer relationship management, and web-based social networking converge to create both a need and a context for a different kind of interaction within distributed communities of practice (e.g., as distinguished from communities of interest).
We use the term diaβlogue to refer to web-based dialogue that is grounded in real-world actions it both influences and reflects as opposed to web-based logging of one’s own ephemeral opinions (e.g., as in common "blogs"). We have found that such a commitment can lead to a different sort of distributed community of communities--a community of influence.
A diaβlogue utilizes multiple communication platforms to create a distributed and decentralized collaboratory for systematic development of capabilities. It thus is a synthesis of best practices in “continuous beta” and "open innovation."
A diaβlogue removes walls between insiders and outsiders, it tends to eliminate the distance between presence and remoteness, and it blurs the distinction between first-hand and second-hand experience insofar as it provides all networked participants with inescapable accountability for their impact on each other and on their respective situations.
