@Jennifer Stauss Windrum , you and your mom are an inspiration to us all. Happy Birthday to you. As a mom, I'm so grateful for Leslie, that she has witnessed so many milestones. @ginidietrich, what a wonderful tribute to this loving, dedicated daughter and amazing social entrepreneur!

Other than my iPad, I'm still a PC/Android girl though recently Apple has seriously tempted me. Then I'm reminded by a review like this. I've loved every Dell I've ever owned, and their service and forums are unbeatable. For work on the go, this is - yes- pretty as well as powerful. @allenmireles I know envy will get me no where... so Lucky you!

Maddie this is so rich with wonderful thought food, and in the conversations already started add that more to digest. "Trust provides structure and predictability in a much more powerful way than hierarchies and organizational charts do" and requires far less energy to maintain. We naturally seek it out and easily defy hierarchical divisions to sustain it where we find it. this, I think it is true to @lucgaloppin 's point on resistance, even in those who manage by fear and mandate, believing they alone are trustworthy.

This so delightfully smashes the infinite mirrors reflecting of solipsistic egos online, I'm in love. I'm splitting up with me. Finally.

@maddiegrant @LisaThorell The Chomsky connection is a good one - structure + vision. I found the choice of "generative" literally and as an organic metaphor for the organization to be most powerful in your model for several other reasons. First, it aligns as well with Umair Haque's concept of creating thick value as opposed to thin value, It also sets the organization in a timeframe. Future-facing, generative also gives us the link to origins. It is along that timeline that organizations not only evolve, but must regularly assess their direction and results. Finally, it carries the sense not only of iterative creation and production but also transformation - and it is open-ended.
I'd say the choice was a fine example of "eating you're own dog food: good on you for a choice at once precise and resonant with such rich and constructive meaning.

It's hard to escape the irony of a company which so embraced crowdsourcing a better algorithm has stopped communicating with the people they wanted to "know better" in order to predict their product preferences. So confident they've mastered the complexity of Big Data, they've lost sight of the simply obvious fact that their fans, their customers are more than statistics. The potential is envious, ignoring it is arrogance. Feet on the ground, you lay out 3 simple steps. But you can't program community.

That brisk ride warmed up some powerful connections and inspiring analogy. We're all facing a changing landscape where last year's map (last month's?) is useless. That familiar path, comfortably routine quickly proves an illusion. The first leg feels uncertain even unfriendly at times, but there is real happiness to be found in the adventure, the trials, even the failures often hold some of the most satisfying surprises of discovery and openings to new and better ways to work - and play. (It can be fun after we warm up to it) Thanks for making your morning an eye-opener to possibilities for all of us.
