Once again we focus on David Armano's blog "Logic+Emotion". I have been reading it for a while now... with the "feeling" (yes very subjectively) that something was going to happen there. Well, something really interesting is happening on his blog at the moment.
David was working on a blog presentation. He built a visualisation model and shared it to his readers' eyes and brains... on his blog.
He initiated an idea and shared his vision of a subject on his blog. His idea was immediately "criticised" (positively) by the readers of his blog. Their feedback fed David's original idea and so, the first visualisation evolved and grew, step by step, to reach higher levels of accuracy. David modified and re-shaped his idea progressively and changed his original visualisation to get a new one, closer to the reality shared by his "sphere of influence".
The incredible thing is that Armano pointed this paradigm months ago on his "Sharing ideas in Flat vs. Round Worlds" scheme. This time, the process is proven through a real blogging experience. How surprising it is to discover that the subject was blogging itself. In french there is an expression that describes this : "une mise en abyme"... like Hamlet of Shakespeare, a play telling a story of a play revealing the plot of Hamlet, the play.
Now, I am wondering if another subject of discussion, with another host, could lead to build other "objects". Whether ideas, or concepts, even innovation or science projects. The key is probably the interest in the "object" itself. Here, we had a panel of people interested in blogging and blogging about blogging. Mmmm... Another key is to lead people with common interest to gather in one place. Ok ok... a blog, right! Then, focusing people's attention on the subject itself. I think a diagram or drawing or a visual element like a mind map is a good starter. Last but not least... we need an open mind to share and lead discussion, an idea builder to gather the pieces of the puzzle and paste them together. Well, this is the point where I need to say, loud and clear : "Congratulations David!", and thank you for the picture you brought to our eyes.
I'm sure more will come out of it... more ideas, more links, more examples and success stories. This is the beginning of a new way to connect our brains intuitively but with a new ability to gather and focus... to feed ideas and make them grow like never before.
